Hello. My name is Tan.

Could I get the make, model and serial number of the engine please?

Is the alarm continuous? One long tone?

Ok long tone is over heat. When was the last time the water pump was serviced? What is the temperature gauge reading?

I don't know of any McCullough engines in a Sea Ray.

I need engine model and serial number?

152 now
Expert:  Tan replied 1 year ago.

I still need the engine and drive serial numbers.

Is the alarm sounding now?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Aaron is not on anymore
Expert:  Tan replied 1 year ago.

Ok continuous alarm is over heat due to not enough water. So you have have blockage in the motor or a failing water pump.

Do you know if the water pump was serviced for sure?

Can you run the boat and see what the engine temperature is when the alarm sounds?

Could you have run over something that restricted the water flow to the engine? Sea weed, grass, ice bag???

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I will check
Expert:  Tan replied 1 year ago.

Ok let me know.
