Sounds like a water pump bearing. Possibly alternator bearing. With the belt off, spin them by hand and see how they feel and sound. Look on the back of the thermostat and the temp should be stamped in near the center.

It sounds to me like the starter gear dragging on the flex plate. think the bendix spring could be weak.

Ok I think you are right about the starter, but this is not the solenoid right? Should I remove starter and lube?

I replaced the solenoid last year but only because I broke the plastic. But it's an Arco starter only about 4 years old. The boat starts with no issues at all just the strange noise at startup.

Starter bendix spring is weak or broken. Remove Starter and you will see.
