Assume you are checking the max RPM when not operating the boat? If so, might have a second tach to check the gauge is okay. Naturally, if you checked RPMs underway it would probably be a dented prop. Pete

Two things depreciate faster than a car and they are boats and rvs. A vintage yamaha is a nice term for older yamaha. I will be worth what someone wants to pay for it. That said, if parts are still available and it runs well, no work needed, you may get $1000 to $2000 for it. But that depends on the area you are in and what other used ones are going for. All you can do is offer to sell it for some amount of money and see if anyone calls. Lower the price if no takers.

It could be either your CDI unit or your Ignition coils. Sounds more like a CDI failure. It could also be your Neutral safety switch, where you plug in the plastic keylike plug. make sure that circuit is working or try to pull or push the actual pin where the teather plugs in.

I would start with the carbs. Buy new carb kits with float for each carb and clean and rebuild them then change the fuel filter before starting it back up.

On some boats there is a manual handle to direct water to either wash down or livewell. If you hear a pump running, but no water in livewell, look for that manual handle in the hose plumbing.

Not knowing the engine manufacturer and horsepower it is still one of two items. Most of today's engines have an automatic oil feed if it is a two-stroke engine. The four-strokes have something similar, except it deals with maintaining a constant oil pressure for the engine and recognizes a low oil condition as well. Another potential issue is a restricted fuel supply going to the engine. Larger engines obviously, require more fuel. An air leak into the fuel line or a fuel restriction between the fuel tank and the engine can also cause alarms to activate.

Make sure you transducer is sitting level with the bottom of the boat. Follow the transducer cable down the line from where it plugs into your unit. There should be a tag on the transducer that says which model the transducer is. Go into "setup" in your settings and make sure the correct model of transducer is chosen.
