my 197 has a sticky ignition switch , sometimes when i start the boat the key gets stuck all the way to the right and i have to hand turn slighty back left. doesnt always happen so i dont want to replace. should i lube it up ? wd40?

Use really light grease. Silicone grease would work for this. Just put some in the key hole and work the key in and out a few times, turning the key to ON each time. It might buy you some time.
