I would trace all the wires coming off the batteries. Besides knowing where they go and what for, the wiring at the batteries is a puzzle to me. On the one hand the batteries are wired in parallel to maximize the amp hours available (parallel), yet the are also pos wires coming off each pos post and heading off into the boat and the same for the negative wires- this makes it look like the batteries are being used individually (all depending on which red matches up with which black wire). This may negate the paralleling of the batteries...

Just a followup. Regarding the picture with the two faucet handles . The one in the back IS actually a faucet, I'm guessing to drain or add water ??
Currently rebuilding the entryway hatch. Launch date is 5/22. Fingers crossed

The launch

just wanted to post a followup...
Launched the Columbia and took it out to its mooring last week, without incident. Motor runs like a charm. Did break the shift lever (which I had just had brazed)...see if I can find a different one or use a vice grip until fall and make one...this time out of stainless.
I want to thank all the useful comments and I'm really impressed with some of the info contained here...I hope others find it useful.
