Our previous boat was a Catalina 34. They had a problem of not starting when the engine was at operating temperature (not turning over fast enough to start). It was because the starter battery cables were undersized and the starter built up resistance as the engine heated up.

I also had a car one that wouldn't start when the engine was at operating temperature (engine cranked over very quickly) The valve lash was too tight, so I was loosing compression.
