My original with the plate rivited on the bottom lasted 5 years. I had to replace it last year, near the end of the season, with the redesigned one piece molded plastic one after the boat would not start.

It only worked for a few months and had to be replaced again. Now the new one with less than 30 starts on it is dying again. I have to tap it while someone presses the start button to get it to engage the starter. So it appears the new ones are worse than the original design.
This is really pathetic!!!

Would it be possible to retrofit one from a car somehow? Has anyone done this?
