    Default 4.3l mercruser

    My boat runs but will only run while the starter is engaged. I had to gimp it back to the landing. Can someone please help?

    sounds like you have lost the +12VDC feed from the ignition switch to the + side of the coil.....could be a bad switch, a dirty harness connector (pin or socket), a fuse or circuit breaker in that lead.....
