    Default engine will not crank

    2008 mobius lsv 325 indmar
    I installed a new battery, starter, fuel filter, fresh gas and tried to start my boat the first time in about 6 months and the engine would not turn over. I have power to the starter and the guages work except for the perfect pass. When I put the boat up last year I started to have problems with it starting but no problems with it cranking.
    Thanks

    Is your throttle in the neutral position?

    Starter won't engage or it turns over but won't catch?

    I had the same problem with my 98 outback. I had the starter rebuild, replaced the spark plugs and a couple other things and it ended up just being the ignition, where you turn the key to start it, replaced that ($10 at parts store) and started right up. Here is a video of what mine was sounding like. Hope this helps!

    Edit my bad didn't realize that video wasn't your boat. So the way you can tell if its the starter or the ignition switch is to jump the solenod with a screwdriver. If the engine cranks its your ignition switch if not, starter/solenoid.
