Sounds like the starter. Check if you have power at the solenoid from the battery with just the power on (key turned on, power switch on.) thats good-- you have power-- if not you have a wiring problem from your battery or main switch.

Otherwise you have a starter problem probably.

30 horse power '88 Mariner motor won't stay started

If you have portable tanks, some have screens under the coupler assembly. They could be dirty. If you have more than one tank, you could switch out on the water. Make sure the bubble pump is hard and full of gas. It is not uncommon for some outboards to need choking to start even when warm. This is an updraft carburetor characteristic.
