more info required.
make / type of boat
what is fuse for
also some photo's of boat layout would help.
normally fuse box is located inside consule
some items ie VHF , Plotter , Gps etc have inline fuses on the power lead to the appliance.

Some engines (e.g. yamaha 20HP) have a "master fuse" inside the engine cowling, but as sparkey says need to know more about the problem and your set up.

Sorry you posted that whilst I was typing my last message.

What make of engine (and size etc?).

Yamaha 20HP engine master fuse is located on the front port side. The spare is stored on a waterproof tube clipped alongside the fuse. If it is similar you are looking for a cylindrical fuse (like you get in a 13A plug at home but bigger) about 1" long, 1/4" diameter... in some sort of inline holder (IIRC looks a bit like a pen top).

I don't know the layout of suzuki engines, although am sure someone here will be able to help if you don't have the manual. The master fuse should be on the positive feed from the battery - if you can trace where that comes into the cowling and then follow it - you should find it.

Of course as well as replacing the fuse you need to find what caused it to blow.
