Marine Electrician?

I have some problems with my boats electrical system. I tried doing a web search for a "marine electrician" and came up with a lot of not pertinent stuff. Can anyone recommend a qualified marine electrician in the Middle River area of the Chesapeake Bay? I have a problem with the interior light breaker not staying on, probably a short somewhere. And my battery switch is not letting the starting battery feed through. If I put the switch to Batt 1 I can't start the juice at all. If in "both" it does pull from the start battery. I know this because I had the boat on a mooring for a week and when I tried to start the boat while in "both" mode there wasn't enough juice. I also tried Batt 1 and Batt 2, but nothing. I decided to replace the starting battery as it was old. I put the new battery in. Set the battery switch to Batt 1 and got absolutly nothing. I tried Batt 2 thinking perhaps the switch was mislabeled and there was not enough juice to start. Used "both" and the engine fired right up!
