Battery Problem

(Worcester, Ma)

I have a Boston Whaler Jet Series 351 Ford engine. I had a problem with starting my boat. While running, the old battery started a fire. Replaced with a new marine battery, this was would not keep a charge. Replaced with another battery. Boat started up great. Took the boat out to lake today, started up fine, ran for 1/2 hour. Came into dock and tried to start the boat up again. The boat would not turn over. Came home and put the charge to it. No juice left. I am charging it right now, my mechanic suggested to check the voltage. I will do this. He then said if it does not read 14 voltage, it could be my alternator?

Any Suggestions?
