I assume you mean 'near' the ignition, not that the ignition did the cutting (e.g cut by the knife)?
Is everything working on the boat?
If the wires were stock from the factory, and then cut and terminated, something on the boat would be missing or not functioning. You don't normally wire to the ignition switch itself. That sounds more like something done installing aftermarket auto accessories. Are you sure they didn't have a crazy stereo system installed at some point?
This is one of the rare times someone actually needs the Owners Manual. The wiring diagram is about the only useful piece of information in the owners manual. However, it will not show aftermarket installations.
