I have a 2000 prostar 205 and everytime i pull a slalom skier and make a hard turn or make a hard turn at high speed the check engine light will turn on And the alarm will sound. However i experience no power loss or change in the running of the engine. When i stop the boat following this and shut it down and restart everything turns off and the boat continues to run fine again until i make a hard turn at high speed. Ive checked the oil when the engi.e is cold and levels are fine. Any dieas?

a hard turn at high speed might be enough to fool your oil pressure sender into thinking that you dont have any oil pressure because of the g's in the turn. this is why alot of performance race cars have dry slump oil systems. keep an eye on that oil pressure gauge and you might find its dropping to 0

Seems that it actually rises a little bit when it happens. It also has happened when accelerating quickly
