If after you check all the wiring, it's probably the amp or head unit...a 2006 boat should be under warranty....check to see if they ran the amp power lead to the batt switch or the batt...that's key....

if they wired it to a fuse, check for corrosion at the fuse. also check the ground wire connections. do you have a multimeter? check for voltage at the amp when the problem occurs.

it could also be a bad speaker or shorted speaker wire causing the problem. try disconnecting one speaker at a time to see if the problem goes away.

I had the same exact problem last year and it was a blown speaker. What kind of speakers do you have?
