94 Regal Rush with Mercury 90 hp

I just purchased a 94 Regal Rush 14 foot with a 90 hp merc jet drive.
The starter, the gear on top that turns the flywheel, will jump and down when the ignition is turned. It doesn't always stay engaged until the key is released.
Is this a problem? This is a new starter and it's bolted tightly to the engine. The motor will start, after several tries.

Any ideas?

Thank you

I would check that the batt is fully charged and connections are clean and tight. If the starter is new I would say it's not getting enough amperage to the starter.
