Default Alarm sound

I'm getting an alarm sound that's constant. I just put my boat in for the first time after being winterized. This is just my second season so it's brand new. Glastron gt205 any insight ? Thanks

that's the model not the motor. there are different motors that can come in that boat. is it an outboard or an I/O? Volvo or mercrusier?

Gt205 is I/O im pretty sure, I looked at one.

already mentioned: drive lube or overheat.

also, check bilge. some have audible alarm when water gets in(mine does not). could be faulty switch.

whip out your manual, for that new a boat, you should have one still. itll give you all reasons for alarms

also...got a wacky depth finder setting perhaps...? I ask this, because my kids were fumbling with ours, and managed to change the settings, and the thing went off while I was in the water floating on a tube.... not a relaxing sound!

It's a I/0 mercruiser. Today I had it checked out and the drive lube and power steering fluids were low. Hope that's all. Thank you all so much!
