Ignition Problem. Please Help!

I can start my boat with the ignition key but i cannot turn the motor off. What could be the problem. The starter is going to be starting a 40hp two stroke outboard motor.

If you can get to the switch, check for continuity between the two "M" terminals on the back of the switch. With key in run position, no continuity. Key in off position, continuity.
