Is the engine seized or hydrolocked?

That wire that caught fire is the positive power to the actual starter motor (from solenoid to starter). That means you didn't have an electrical problem before, but likely have one now.

Put a socket on the nut in the center of the harmonic balancer, and manually turn the engine through a few turns.

Voltage. The minute I read your reply I thought 'come on, of course voltage, how in the world would it be amperage?" DOH!!!! I don't know what I was thinking there. Many thanks!

Sidenote: I somehow reversed amperage and voltage AGAIN in this reply. I hit submit, then re-read the post and had to edit it. I don't know what is going on in my head. This juggling of buying a new boat, selling the old boat has got my head spinning.

Any update on this? Curious what the outcome was.

What amperage would you expect to see there?

Depends on where he made the jump, battery has 500 plus amps depending on its size. Battery wire goes directly to the starter. There are low current wires to activate the soleniod at around 10 amps.
