Ignition (I think) issue - help please

I have an issue and would welcome some help please.

The symptoms are: lots of fuel, batteries fully charged, all the lights come on, gps etc etc, turn the key engine makes all its usual noise, apart from the main one - it doesn't start, it doesn't even turn over. It is as if there is an immobiliser fitted. The engine is a 150 hp 2 stroke mariner optimax efi.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

I'm not sure I dare say! After spending 38 years on the water, really should know better. 13 mins was the time from posting, to realising what a plonker I was, especially after spending an hour trying to work out why it wouldn't start.


Today's tip is make sure the engine isn't in gear when trying to start!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
