Hello, my name is***** you for allowing me to assist you today.
There is a 5 A fuse near the battery that is for the engine clean power, make sure that fuse is still good.

I looked for it there is on this boat 3 fuses one glass fuse that it connected directly to the battery looks small enough to be 5 amp it is good it is attached to a pink (ish) wire light blue tracer
There are two atm type fuses mounted near battery one marked bilge pump and one marked stereo they are all good
Expert:  Charles replied 2 years ago.
this fuse is a blade type.
When you turn the key on, do the gauges come to life?
Do you hear the fuel pump when you turn the key on?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No only bilge pump blower horn and lights
Fuel pump does turn on

Have you already checked to see if all of the fuses on the engine are good. This includes the main 50A breaker.
