Lucky,

Alarms go off for a lot of reasons, the 150 degree temp sounds fine. Is it closed cooled? Is the exhaust overheating? Maybe an impeller problem. Low oil?

I am no expert but these may be some starting ideas.

Best of luck.

A beating alarm needs attention by a computer code reader at a dealer . Might get lucky . Just a sensor wearing out slowly with aging.

Okay I spoke with my boat mechanic and he said it may be the sensors also he wants you to go out test it feel the exhaust check the hoses I can't get it to stop beeping if I could turn you on reading through at a higher rate of speed which i have only tried that once. Ty cyclops2 for your help.
