Is there a battery charger? Is it running while the boat is sitting? Do you have flooded batteries? FLA batteries lose charge over time.

Check your bilge pumps as well. If they are electronic 'auto-sensing' they will need to power on every minute or so to check for water. That is the most common culprit. Is the memory for the stereo hard-wired to the battery? Are there any other devices hard-wired to the battery that doesn't have a dedicated switch? Some items have small amounts of draw, even when off.

There are manuals for each engine in the documents section.
Most likely there have been additions and modifications to your electrical system over time. First indication of additions is wires connected directly to your battery terminals. I would check the unknown wires for parasitic draw first.
Your fuse panel is going to be under helm, somewhere near the steering wheel.

I would use a current meter then remove one fuse at a time until the current draw goes away. Now you know the source.

Thanks for all the info. I was feeling like a kid with a new toy but now I'm feeling like a kid with a shitty diaper. But I'll get thru it .
I'm seeing a few wires pulled out behind the guages can anyone send me a pic of there wiring being the guages or how to figure out what goes where. Thanks

It would be easier if you post a picture of your wiring
