Hello, my name is***** will assist you.

Check on the top of the engine, there is a 50A breaker that may have tripped. If that is good, and the 90A at the starter is good, Make sure that the engine is not locked up not by placing the drive in REV and trying to turn the prop until it rotates the engine slightly. After that try to crank it over again.
