If it's intermittent, it's an electrical connection. Most people start with the key switch, but our experience has been the fuse in the wire between the key switch and the starter solenoid, usually hidden underneath the alternator. It's rarely the key switch.

CRITICAL UPGRADES - DO THESE OR ELSE!!!

You should also check your main engine ground connetion.

Thanks Stu... I am a complete novice here, so when you say "the fuse in the wire between the key switch and the starter solenoid", do you mean the fuse is blown, partially blown, weak? Do all starters have this fuse?
Anyway, thanks again.
If you read the link I provided, it answered that question. It's the fuse between the starter button or key switch and the starter solenoid. If it works sometimes, the fuse is fine, it is the HOLDER. Please reread what I linked you to.

And C34s are not the only boats with these issues. We just happen to document them to save every one else a lot of detective work! :)
