First Start of the year, ran but then stopped. (Flywheel needs replacement)

Hooked everything back up, put in plugs etc.

After a few pumps of the throttle the engine fired right up. There was some pretty bad belt whine and realized I had not re tightened the belt via the alternator.

I tighten it up, go to start the boat, has a bit more trouble but fires up.
Let it run for about 1 min, shut it down to add some belt dressing, then go to re start and won't fire up.

I can hear the engine spinning, but the pulleys don't spin or run at all. Almost seems like they aren't connected.

Looking for thoughts and ideas to check??? I am headed back out to try it again with the belt looser
