Ran the blower, went for a rip, stopped for a while and when I went to turn on the blower, it stressed the battery and the switch for the blower flipped back down. I also noticed that the oil pressure gauge was "peeked" I was losing battery power, and there is a squealling noise coming from the under side of the engine. The boat also struggled to run the trim.

What's up with this???

I check the belt. Still good. Had one break last season. The alternator is spinning. Any help would be great!

Thanks.

Sounds like the alternator would be the first thing to check. Possibly a bearing in it binding intermittently. I'd pull the belt check alt. shaft/bearings for play, if that looked good-pull it, take it in and have it tested for output. AND check major power connections AND THE GROUND to your block also.

Good Luck!!
