Starting Problem

Having an issue when starting my A4 in my Catalina 30 (1979). Just delivered it a few wks ago and had some trouble getting it into neutral in order to start her. Eventually she started.

Yesterday we were out in some pretty roguh seas and went to return to the marina and she would not start. It took a significant amount of time and alot of "jiggling" of the shifter to get her going. We orignially thought that it was the starter but ruled that out after it started following manipulation of the shift handle.

Anyone else have this issue before and if so, can it be remedied??
