2004 23v with Hammerhead 380 just died and won't start

We were out wakesurfing and suddenly died and cranks but wont start. Luckily a guy was near by that towed us back to the ramp. At the house & I confirmed the fuel pump is working and the kill switch lanyard is connected. I changed the oil and impeller a month ago and no issues last weekend trip. When cranking & no t starting I see the oil Pressure warning is on the digital display. The Oil pressure warning would beep once in a while during initial acceleration off on our last trip when we had 15 people but stopped within a second or two during acceleration. The Oil pressure gauge always showed pressure and was over 40 most of the time. Any ideas? Any input is much appreciated.

Update: pulled the distributor and found some of the gear teeth broken off and it feels like the oil pump isn't turning. So, probably too big of job for me. Going to find a good mechanic.
