Ok I just reread everything, i'm not a boat mechanic but I know a thing or 2 about cars. You said you cleaned the terminals when you put a new battery in and it worked until you stopped. Can you see the starter from where it's mounted? Could be corrosion on the hot wire to starter? I've had a bad starter cause weird things before, including draining the battery and causing slow cranking starts. I'd spend some time checking the starter myself, maybe your new battery worked until the starter got hot and drained the battery.
