If I understand correctly and your instruments are not working even while the engine is working, and the alternator has the proper output, then the problem is not with your batteries.

This would tell me to start checking for a bad connection somewhere. Without knowing how your boat is wired it's hard to point to a specific connection. I would start with: Alternator to point of charging? Battery switch to pannel?

It could also be your battery switch itself... we really need to know how your boat is wired before we can give more specific trouble shooting advice.
