    Sure sounds like a bad ignition switch to me,espescially if it cranks everytime you jump the solenoid.
    There are a set of contacts in the switch that energize the solenoid when you turn the key.
    Go to about any Marine store or possibly Napa and they can fix you up.
     

  3. un hook the batt then take the switch out of the dash look at the backof the switch it should tell ya what wire goes where u can jump it there just like at the silanoid if it does the same it needs a new switch napa would be your best bet probably
