    Mechanical Issues on motor

    Hello, I am new to the site and am looking for some help and or suggestions on a mechanical issue I'm currently having with my 1989 Chaparaal 2100SX. Over the weekend My wife and I were out boating on Lake Michigan when we became dead in the water. As we were cruising back to the pier head, the motor acted as if I had turned the ignition switch off. At that point I put the throttle in neutral and turned the switch to off and had a buddy pull us back into the docks. A brief diagnosis that I was able to do is as follows: Motor cut off as if I turned the ignition switch off. I checked the oil dip stick which was full and no signs of leaking oil anywhere. once a thorough look through was conducted I felt that there was no apparent problem, I decided to see if the motor would turn over. Hooked up the muffs and was able to see that the boat was cranking over and there was compression. Gave it a shot of ether to ensure boat was getting fuel, still start. Then I checked the spark plugs, at which I found that we were not getting a spark at any of the plugs I pulled. So here I am looking for some guidance on where to go from here. Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for reading.
