Hi I'll have a look at the wires and see what colors. They are the boat was built 1980 ish 

At that sort of age and on a UK engine like the BMC, there is a strong possibility the wiring is to British automotive colour norms. A temperature warning sender to light wire would be black with a purple stripe for example. A temperature sender to gauge wire would be green with a blue stripe for a gauge with built in voltage compensation. See here and here.

There is no name on the gauge what I can see apart it's got vdo on the face of it there is no alarm on it 

VDO is the make, the alarm wont be on the gauge but a lamp similar to the low oil pressure  or ignition lights

There are always exceptions. I have seen a marine temperature gauge with the high temperature warning light was built in to the gauge, but most likely a separate warning light. VDO are a big name in the marine instrumentation market and have been around for a good while.

Over temperature warning may be a sounder not a lamp.

Or even both. As with the oil pressure going, if it happens than anything to bring it to the steerers attention as soon as possible is a good thing.
