Hello, my name is***** will assist you.

Expert:  Charles replied 7 months ago.

Do you have a multimeter to test the voltages on the engine?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
I am not at the boat now. Battery is full charge and volt indicator on the dash matched the charger indicator when I was starting engine.
Light test showed no current coming out of the slave solenoid. Slave would also make a click noise. Changed Slave and now no click from it but the starter makes a single click.

In order to properly locate the bad part and not just guess at it, I will need you there with a multimeter to test the voltage, A test light will show voltage as low as a few volts but we need to be accurate, so as to not replace the wrong item.
