Question about Boating
Need more info on the engine. If an inboard sounds like a bad battery, ground, or connections. If not that sounds like a bad starter drive. The starter would spin but not engage.
If it is an outboard the same would be true as above check battery and all connections. Look for green corrosion on all connections an clean as needed. Lubricate the starter drive with WD-40 if it does not engage the flywheel. That needs to be done regularly. Starter drive is on top of the starter where it engages the flywheel. Do not use oil on the starter drive as it is too heavy and the drive may not work.

Sounds like your starter is spinning but not engaging. Low/bad battery, dirty cables. More info in engine would be helpful.
