May have been one of several things. How long since youve had a new waterpump on it? They can be "peeing" fine and not getting enough water pressure to cool the motor properly. May have got something stuck on the water intakes or may be a faulty overheat sensor. Did you lose water pressure on the gauge?

Sorry mines not a e_tec its a ho. i baught the boat from watsons in nov last yr and they said the water pump was new. but I'm not positive what "new" meant. yea my water pressure was fine after i cranked it back up when the alarm started goin off to be honest i didn't look at my pressure at that moment i was just tryin to stop and shut off the motor. thanks for all the advice guys ill figure all this out one day hopefully.

My advice would be to get it to your dealer or a qualified mechanic and have the engine diagnostics ran. That should tell them alot about what happened. As far as the water pump goes, alot of people suggest replacing them every 3 years, but as inexpensive and easy as they are to change, I change mine every year when I change my lower unit grease.
