If you don't have 12v on the starter trigger wire at the starter, trace the wire. I don't know about your boat, but on mine the starter trigger wire is yellow with a red stripe. The most likely trouble spots are the neutral safety switch and the ignition switch.
Good points......I was assuming that had been done already, but you knows what happens when we assume
