Starter won't engage

We are trying to start our glastron 1990s boat. It hasn't been started in 2 years. The battery is fresh the gas and oil are new and the connection between the battery and the starter are there. The problem is when we send the current from the battery to the starter, the starter doesn't startto catch the fan to begin turning over the motor. Can anyone help

easy fix
by: Tony

Had the same problem, fixed by pulling the gear up the shaft and coated the shaft with some anti-sieze grease, been working great ever since.
