Engine starts but dies when I release key

Pulled my boat up and put water hose on it to check before we went to lake. It ran great about two weeks ago. Tried to cranked it but engine kept stopping after I released the key to run position. Also noticed with key on the gauges did not work on dash. Installed new ignition switch and did same thing. Came back out next day, and boat cranked fine. Gauges back working. Took to lake and it ran find for four days. Cranked probably 30 times and ran great. Tried to crank this morning and did same thing. Engine dies after starting and gauges not working on dash. The. Motor is a 1998 5.0 alpha thunderbolt mercrusier. What the heck is going on.
