    I have the charging light coming on, the alarm going off & the rev counter is going all over the place.
    I have had the alternator checked out and is ok.
    Any ideas where to look for other problems or know a boat electrician, who will come on board.
    Thanks
    Bill.

    ….at the risk of teaching Grandma to suck eggs, have you checked that the drive belt is tight and not slipping?

    Bill Is your warning panel that is about 6 inches long and has the other warning lights in a row? I had a similar problem on our 32 a few years ago the alternator was not picking up a good earth through the mounting bracket we fixed that and then found the rear of the warning light panel was poorly installed and the wires were just into a chock block and badly corroded. So much so that we could not get a decent solder joint on them despite lots of cleaning. in the end we had to replace the panel and some of the wiring.
