Exclamation 2005 X-30 shut off twice yesterday while surfing?

My boAt twice today within 10 min shut right down ( while surfer was out and almost slammed into the boat /perfect pass was on ) engine light came on to check . Happened a second time so stopped.I was standing driving as there was so many boats so didn't see temp guage at the time but when I restarted it each time temp was around 165.We had 8 people and the 200 stock and one 750 bag in the right locker ....middle bag in floor filled ( maybe too much weight with it being so hot 38 deg ? ) I tried it after when we had no ballasts full and worked fine ? It was really hot out yesterday and a buddy that works at a marine shop suggested running blower when its that hot as he has seen this happen before?Another friend that has closed cooling also said to not turn the motor on and off a lot to let it idle and when I do shut it off leave it off for 10 min or so any suggestions?

thanks for the help

I've got an '08 with the MCX. When I first got it I had an episode where I was idling around a marina looking at the boats and it stalled several times. Happened again while surfing. Never had any over-heats or anything. I was told to run the blower when going slow to keep fresh cool air in the engine compartment. I run the blower now, almost all the time, and haven't had any more problems.

Are you losing power to your gauges and stereo or did it just stall? This will help tell if it is electrical system related or engine related.

I had the volume turned all the way down ( I was standing to the side of the dash driving as the lake was busy as hell so I could see boats ) I think it was still on but the check engine came on and buzzer on dash right when it stalled ?
