Well, I cheaped out last winter and bought a Pyle radio. Well guess what, when I start the boat the radio clips... I guess the 13.5v shorts it out... bummer. When the boat isn't running it works. Anyone ever heard of this? My power amp has no issues... just the head unit.

Are you sure it is actually 13.5 and you don't have a voltage problem? I'd guess not, but it's worth a check. I'd bet that Pyle is just a pile. I try to avoid them at all cost.

When the boat is running I put an alt. test light on it... it showed 13.5v. I figured my amp would shut down too if it were a voltage prob. I think it's the radio itself... wasn't sure if there was something out there to fix it or not.

Some sort of "voltage control"... or is it just a piece of junk??

I'm pretty sure there's a problem with the head unit or the wiring (maybe a bad / loose ground). Your head unit should work fine in a range from around 12v all the way up to 14v.

Hmmm... I have the red and yellow wires together at the + side of the batt. And the black to the ground... what else is there?
