Finally the starter issue was solved by running an additional wire from the key switch to the solenoid attached to the engine starter.
We left the original wire in place so the two wire they can now work in parallel providing more current to the solenoid.
Once that done, the engine has been reliably starting all the time at the first turn of the key.
We did this while on our Atlantic crossing but add this comment to the blog later and post-dated to when the fix was done.

This is the same issue that was discussed in the Sail magazine article by a reader and answered by Nigel Calder
