Had the same problem years ago with Honda 40ís. After doing everything youíve done to no avail I took it to a Honda dealer and he replaced charging coils. Problem solved including the batteries low voltages. Thatís a clue.

I would start with replacing All of the Connectors(cable & wire ends) & Switches in the picture. Place new stuff where it wont get washed down(salt water) while cleaning the cockpit.

Well I spent all weekend replacing the connections that were looking rough and that solved my voltage drop issues, the bad news is that my tachs still dont work, I will keep looking things over and find the issue eventually but do have another good question for you guys.

There is a 50 amp thermal circuit breaker in the battery box and I have no idea what it goes to, the only thing on the boat that I could imagine that would need something like this is the Trac pot puller but it already has a 35 amp fuse in-line, what do you think?

Anchor windless?? follow the wire?
Look for disconnected, corroded bullet or spade connectors near coil packs (under cowling) on motors, at throttle & near tac's.
Is this a red stripe 22 formerly named Money Pit? Mr. Green Beer

No windless on the boat and these is no wire coming off of it. No apparently it has been Blue Dawg since day 1.
