Honda 150 Trim problem

Hi,Please can anybody help me.I have a ring 7m rib with a honda 150 on the back.All was well until yesterday afternoon on a trip around anglesey,i started to trim the engine up at cruising speed (28 knotts) and the engine cut out and the gps and radio turned off.I then turned the ignition off and tried to restart which it did first time,tried it twice more and the same happened.I carried on with the engine down fully until we came to the next bay where we moored up.One hour later started off again and problem gone! I have had the battery tested today and it apears fine, i think it may be an intermittent short but where do i start to look? Thanks in advance Barry

Could be a poor negative connection, best to check all battery lead conections for corrosion and wd40 then grease.

Try to replicate the fault at the marina, trim the motor up with the igntion on but not running. Could be a dodgy cable in the conduit from motor to boat.
