Hi Rick, my name is Jason.

It's ultimately the pressure control valve inside of the oil pump that controls engine oil pressure. What I would do In the shop is disconnect the oil pressure sending unit and plumb in a mechanical gauge, run the boat, and see if the mechanical gauge does the same thing or not. If it does not, and if the mechanical gauge reads fairly steady, then the engine has a bad sending unit on it. If the oil pressure reads the same/does the same thing on the mechanical gauge then the engine would need a new oil pump. Does that make sense to you?
