    After a nice day on the ICW from Jacksonville to St Aug and back my exciter 135 single Will not crank and I double checked the rear clean out hatch. Sensor. It could be the starter relay I have a new one on order .starter itself had a loose positive cable and water damaged the cable that I have replaced. Im disappointed. But I should hopefully be able to figure out.

    Since you are thinking relay i assume it isn't cranking at all? Neutral switch on shift lever?
    Fuses are also an easy check.
