    I suspect you have a bad connection somewhere that fails when turning. Start with the heavy battery cables, especially at the engine end.

    Follow through with the electrical box and wiring harness. Check for places where the wires may be rubbing against the engine or drive line.

    Make very sure the battery is not able to shift or bounce and touch anything. Batteries must be well secured, as they have a rough ride in the hull.

    It is also possible that the battery is coming apart internally. Lead-acid batteries don't like being bounced around.
