Getting oil warning light @ 5000 rpm with 2001 Johnson 70 hp.

Just bought this boat that had been sitting for almost a year. Ran it full out with seller on a very rough day for about 12 miles without incident. Tore tendons on my shoulder so I didn't try to run boat until this weekend. Went out on another rough day and ran at 2k to 4k rpm without any problems. When I got to 5000 rpm the oil light came on and the alarm sounded. Cut off engine - sat for awhile - restarted and ran back to dock at 2k to 3k without problems. Plenty of oil in tank. Don't know how old. Gas tank is full of old non ethanol. Any ideas where I should start looking.
