My boat won't start I suspect the fuel pump. When I turned the key the pump will not prime up. Can someone tell me if I disconnect the pump from the fuel lines. Then connect it to the power supply and turn the key it should run. When I do this I can feel a click in the pump but it does not run. I just want to confirm my diagnosis . Any help would be great.

Just a click and nothing after that? No running sound? Sounds broken? IMO...

Check the electrical connection at your fuel pump. The plug is a little odd and has caused people problems in the past.
