Thanks every body! A friend of mine hooked me up wit ha local dealer that had comparable prices to what I found online after shipping. This however bring up a new problem.
The old starter has 3 connection points to the solenoid. Main lug has two thick (8AWG) red wires and two small lugs one red wire and the other is yellow. It looks like the new starter is configured differently, will there be a diagram in the box. I have the schematic for the boat.
SOLVED: New starter is picked up and... all is as expected. What I thought was a terminal on the end of the starter motor is actually a mounting point for some models. Thanks for the help!
