Default Length of battery time on the water?

Hey guys,
How long should I be able to sit and use my equipement, with the motor off?
The reason I ask is I took my new boat(my first boat) out last week and it had trouble starting. seems it was running out a juice

I stayed in one spot chunking for 2 hours. All that was on was my Lowrance GPS/Sonar and my Uniden VHF. Do they draw so much energy that they kill a battery in two hours?
Or is my battery waning and I need to buy a new one at the start of next season?

My vessel is a : Pro-Line Sport 19', Mercury 125 2S, Lowrance 520C, Uniden UM525
