Clean all connections and battery terminals, including where the cable ties into the terminal as well as the post and on the starter post. Grounds and hot leads.

$0.02

Agree with Cloaked, be sure to check the main engine ground. Also be sure that surfaces of the starter and where it mounts to the engine are clean so you can get a good ground path.

If all that fails take a hammer to the start and solenoid :-). Are the wires hot after the starter clicks? Kill switch fully connected? It seems every boat does something different with the kill switch disconnected

New starter or rebuilt starter? Why was the starter replaced? Same or similar problem? If so you replaced the symptom not the source of the issue.

Low hanging fruit is going to be the cables going to the ground and hot posts. How do the cable ends look? A lot of times the cables will corrode inside the ends.

The transmission should have a neutral position safety switch on it, can be a problem with the switch or the linkage. However, I'm not sure it even clicks when that keeps the starter from engaging.

It Must be something like that, i dont feel it is a lack of voltage, both batteries are fully charged, all connections are tight, i have inspected all terminals/connections for corrision at the connectors and where the ends are crimped on to the cables.

Sounds like low voltage/high resistance. One solid click would suggest a bad starter. Be sure to disconnect each battery connection and clean each one, including the battery ground at the block. While they are disconnected, use an ohm meter to check resistance. I proactively found my 1 gauge positive battery cable had a very high resistance.
