Question about Boating
You may just have a weak battery, so get the one from your truck and see if that helps. If not get your jumpers and attach one to the negative and force it to have a new ground. Still nothing? take a pair of pliers and use the handles to arc across both big lugs on the starter solenoid. This may cause sparks --so no fuel nearby!! If that isn't doing it, you need a new starter, BUT try tapping the starter body with a big screwdriver handle first.
Sometimes the brushes are just stuck.

Try spraying some CRC Light lubricant on the spiral where the pinion gear slides up and down. Can you turn the gear so it will move up to the flywheel? If it turns and stays at the bottom, you will need a new pinion gear! Does the starter motor spin?
