Lifted yacht before winter - changed oil
and filter at that time. Yacht sat on hard standing for 5 months. Launched today.
On starting her up - she started just fine - so left in idle while I nipped below to check for leaks
etc. Then after about 2 minutes - I get the alarm
and symbol on the control panel
- showing 'low oil
Switched the engine
off immediately - followed User Guide Manual - which says check there is enough oil in engine
(all good - just a nudge below top mark on dip stick) - and to check the oil filter
is not blocked (well - no need to do that - brand new one fitted at oil change).
So - started her up again - no alarm
. Ran it up - in gear
- no alarm - left in idle - no alarm. Ran for about 1 hour - at various speed - no alarm.
Hmmmm ! Anything to be worried about ?
