Tried turning the battery switch to off. The gauges by the ignition switch are still on, and the engine still cranks. There is an additional switch near the batter switch that does turn everything off, but haven't figures out the wiring yet. That is another in the long list of things to check on this winter. Just bought the boat a couple of months ago, and although I love sailing her, that list keeps getting longer every time I am out...

Thanks for the responses. I won't worry about it too much until I can get to it after a new key is made.
