Use a meter set to DC volts. Test the battery (red meter lead to positive; black lead to negative) with and without the motor running. The voltage should increase while the motor is running.

The most common cause of problems in boat electrical systems is loose or corroded wiring. Make sure all the connections are clean and tight.
