Is this a straight 24V system... not a 12v - 24v.Correct..
The best advice is use a 50-60 amp resettable breaker..with 6 gauge wire (minimum 8 gauge) ... make sure your connections are clean, tight, and greased to prevent corrosion. USE a BIG HEAVY "jumper" cable between the + and - terminals.

Here are several sites that explain what you need to know..
I went from a 12-24v to a straight 36v Motorguide on my 21ft triton.. WOW!!!! talk about BAD A$$!!
I use the felt washers under all battery connections and the battery spray liberally on each connection..

It's located in the rear compartment centered on the bottom of the boat in front of the transom.

The kill switch keeps the ignition from firing but doesn't keep the motor from spinning over.

I would have the battery tested anyway to make sure you don't have a dead cell. Usually even with a weak battery the starter will try to engage the flywheel on top of the motor.Besides the battery check the fuse located on the motor. If all is good then you can remove the starter for testing and possible rebuilding.

Check to make sure the fuse is good and you have power going to the switch and then to the wires (brown for positive and black for negative) in the bilge area using a 12 volt tester. If you have power to the brown wire while grounded to the black wire then the pump will need to be cleaned, have the impeller replaced or replace the pump. The pump is located in the rear compartment attached to a board mounted to the inside bottom of the boat at the center near the transom.

Check the fuses and the battery connections.

The serial number on the boat is located on the back (transom) right hand side near where the hull meets the deck. On the outboard motor it's on the bracket that attaches the motor to the transom and usually on the engine block as well.

More than likely your carburetors are gummed up with old fuel that turns to varnish after sitting for a long period of time without fuel stabilizer. You can easily test this by spraying a little quick start starting fluid into the carburetors and then try to start the motor. If it cranks up, for even a few seconds, then start by rebuilding the carburetors. If this solves your problem then I would recommend changing your water pump impeller as well.

quite possibly you need a water pump.
