or some advice. Big motor 2001 EFI Mercury just give a humming noise when I try to crank it. New battery yesterday and fully charge so that is out. I have already removed the top and tapped the starter with not results. Suggestions?

There goes first light bite this morning.

Most likely starter sylinoid but could be several other things start with easy first wires corrode in terminal with heat shrink wraps

Make sure all the wires are connected back on the battery, I did the same thing a few yrs back. Starter would spin but not engage, had just changed the battery and had left off one the smaller wires.

Before the TFF, a guy would lose a day of fishing and some cash by taking his boat to a mechanic. Now you can find multiple guys that have had the same boat issues within minutes. Pretty cool
