Starting troubles

I have an older 10.5 metre Beneteau Idylle which I daysail and coastal cruise in and around Sydney.

Just lately, I am having trouble with my batteries and/or switches.

The first attempt to crank is met with the fatefull click of a dead battery bank. However, if I rotate the switches (both, 1 & 2)once or twice, I will get a feeble crank for a few seconds and then nothing. After repeating the rotation of the switches yet again, I get perfectly strong cranking and an engine start. After that, all is well - until next week.

I would appreciate any suggestions.
