Yamaha Help - Lost groung connection

I will admit. I did not search previous threads. I am at the marina and I need a little help.

200 HP
2000 yr

It started with my port outboard not running the fuel pump. I saw that voltage was there but no ground. I replaced fuel pump resistor. That did not fix it. I see that there apears to be not ground connection. Looking at console gauges - I see that the Port engine Batt Voltage and Tach are not working. I am trying to locate the ground point adn/or common failures ie connnectors that make be loose.

Any thoughts?

Uhm...check ground connection to the motor? Ohm the block to the negative battery terminal. Should be practically zero.
To rising millions in the West, the open borders and free trade globalism they cherish and champion is not a glorious future, but an existential threat to the sovereignty, independence and identity of the countries they love. And they will not go gentle into that good night.
