    Electrical craziness

    So last time out I was coming off plane to go over some large waves. As I slowed down and hit the waves my motor shuts off entirely. So I coast to a stop and put it in neutral, key off, then try to restart.
    Starts right back up and I continue on. This is the second time this has happened this year. After the first time my mech replaced the ignition switch.

    Later that day I was floating on anchor doing some swimming and when it was time to leave I went to start the engine and it would not start. The motor would turn over it just wouldn't fire. I did notice that
    the tone sound (beeeeeepppp) did not happen when I turned key on and all my gauges were out. So I started pulling fuses. After about the 8th fuse I pulled, which all were good, when I put it back in the tone
    sound came and it started right up! What is going on here? I have no idea where to start. Also I have my gas gauge problem as well (another post). WTF? Any help please?

    Do you know what the fuse powered that you pulled last ? They should all be marked, little hard to see but marked.

    Could be loose wire that powers the ignition circuit.
