I dont have a clue what kind of boat you have but if you ran it at all without the earmuffs on it you likely burned up the impelor in the lower unit.I would buy a service manual for your model and put a impellor in it either way,unless the po just did it.It's a comon wear part that should be done every few seasons.
The gauges,blower,and bildge are all likelly a bad ground on the back of the dash or even near the battery,try smacking the dash with your palm and see if it changes anything,indicating a loose connection.

Best advice I can give you is to open your wallet,and kiss your money good buy.Welcome to boating.
No really just buy a factory service manual and start wrencing.Spend the money on a factory manual,and it will tell you everthing you need to know.
