My boats voltage low alarm keeps going off. Normally on idle when I have the engine on the volt meter reads 13 volts and when i give it throttle it reads like 14. Now its at like 11 at idle and 12 at wot. Is this the alternator? Also Where can I buy a replacement alternator and can i install it myself? Are there any alternators designed for saltwater? My boat is a mastercraft with the indmar rtp-1

Have you tested your battery to make sure it is not the culprit?

remove it and have it tested at your auto parts store, or take your boat up there. You can buy a handheld load tester too.

This is the easiest way.

It wouldn't be the battery. Sounds like a bad alternator to me.
