Hello everyone the wife and I recently purchased a 2755 ciera sunbridge! We love it minus the fact she won't start, we are new to boating, and I have some mechanical knowledge, she gives me a single click when I attempt to start her. So far I've tried battery cables, starter solenoid, and tapping on starter but to no eval :angry:
Please help she is currently in wet moorage in Edmonds

What year is the boat?
Assuming she's not hydro locked and the cranking battery and related cables/connections including the negative connections are all good I'd first look at the slave solenoid.
You did a sea trial before the purchase or no?

So it's not locked up I can turn it with a socket, and the only resistance I get is from compression, she is an 89 with a 351 omc I think it is called a Stern drive. You will have to forgive me I don't know alot of the terms and meanings yet.

Welcome! And welcome to the Port of Edmonds. You may want to try, or maybe you have tried, having the Admiral turn the key while you listen for where exactly the click is coming from. I think you actually have a GM 350 based motor rather than a Ford based motor. I suggest you go to Harbor Freight and get a mechanics stethoscope, a good sized magnet on a stick and a long or extendable handle rotatable head socket wrench. If the solenoid at the starter is clicking, it's likely that the starter itself is hung up. If that's the case, Amazon Prime is your friend. I bought a complete, new replacement starter, for a Mercruiser, for about $50. Edmonds Auto Parts may know of a shop that rebuilds starters, but in either case you must have a marine starter. Marine starters and alternators have shielding in them to prevent sparking.
If you haven't already, be sure to take some of the courses offered by the Coast Guard Auxiliary and the Power Squadron. They go far beyond the basic requirements and get into things like getting to Port when, not if, you get caught in the fog. Last, consider joining Edmonds Yacht Club. You will find a wealth of knowledge, willingness to share and a whole bunch of "regular folks".
