Also be sure the latch even works to lock that hatch since the clean out plugs usually destroy it if they blow out and requires it to be replaced.

Hatch switch is first on the list but also check your battery connections, i had a loose cable and every so often an engine would die when it wiggled on the post

I had this happen end of last season. Turned out to be the rear hatch latches broke and when the boat hit the water, the hatch jumped and cut the engines. Replaced the latches and haven’t had it happen again. God luck
