for additional boating terminology.
Hull Identification, Capacity
and Safety Plates
Hull Identification Number
The hull identification number (HIN) is usually
located near the upper starboard corner of the
transom on the outside of the boat. In some
instances, the HIN may be located in an alternate
location as determined by the manufacturer. The
HIN must be clearly visible and may not be
removed, altered or tampered with in any way as
regulated by federal law.
1-2
In case of collision, theft or damage, report these
numbers to the local authorities, your insurance
agent and your dealer.
Safeguard information about your boat by
recording the HIN and model of your boat, and
model and serial numbers of the engine, trailer
and accessories on the Boat Information Form on
page 1-6.
U.S. Coast Guard Safety Standards
Compliance Plate
All power boats less than 20 feet (6 meters) must
have a manufacturer’s compliance plate clearly
indicating that your boat is in compliance with the
USCG safety standards and the effective date of
the compliance. The compliance plate may be

combined onto one plate showing both the
capacity plate and compliance information by the
manufacturer.
Monterey Boats
Capacity Plate
All mono-hull recreational boats less than 20 feet
(6 meters) require a gross weight and
person-capacity plate to be clearly displayed as
provided by the manufacturer.
Boats in the National Marine Manufacturers
Association (NMMA) program up to 26 feet (7.9
meters) have a maximum rated load capacity,
which is stated on the certification plate (if
equipped).
The person/load capacity is determined by the
USCG. The capacity plate is usually located
within clear visibility of the boat operator or helm
area. The capacity plate indicates limits for
loading the boat, which are enforceable by law.
Never exceed the “U.S. Coast Guard Maximum
Capacities” indicated on the capacity plate.

Introduction
New Boat Delivery
At the time of new boat delivery, your Monterey
dealer will ask you to sign the completed
Warranty Registration and New Boat Checklist for
the boat and other accessory equipment. By
signing these documents, you acknowledge that
you have reviewed and understand all
information.
Your Monterey boat is inspected at each step of
the manufacturing process. Before leaving the
factory, every Monterey boat undergoes a
thorough check for systems operation, fit and
finish. Your Monterey dealer also performs a
Pre-Delivery inspection prior to final delivery.
When the new boat is delivered to you, the
customer, a final check is performed during
orientation. Both the Pre-Delivery and Final
Delivery inspections are documented (New Boat
Checklist) to ensure trouble-free operation and
returned to Monterey Boats.
Parts
Should you require new parts or would like to
order an option after your original purchase,
please contact your Monterey Boats dealer to
place your orders. Orders may not be placed with
the manufacturer.

SAFETY
The popularity of boating and other water sports
has undergone an explosion of growth in the past
few years, making safety an important issue for
everyone who shares in the use of our
waterways.
WARNING! Read and understand this
Operator's Manual, the Engine Operator's
Manual and all manufacturer-supplied
information regarding the operation of
equipment. As a boat owner, you must
understand all safety information
responsibilities, regulations, controls and
operating instructions before attempting to
operate your boat. Improper operation can be
extremely dangerous and/or fatal.
The safety content and precautions listed in this
manual and on the boat are not all-inclusive. If a
procedure, method, tool or part is not specifically
recommended, you must feel confident that it is
safe for you and others, and that your boat will not
be damaged or become unsafe as a result of your
decision. REMEMBER – ALWAYS USE
COMMON SENSE WHEN BOATING!
As a boat owner, you are responsible for your
own safety, as well as that of your passengers
and other boaters.
GOOD BOATING
PRACTICES
Boating-related accidents are generally caused
by the operator’s failure to follow basic safety
rules or written precautions. Most accidents can
be avoided if you are completely familiar with your
boat and its operation and can recognize
potentially hazardous situations.
In addition to everyday safety, failure to observe
safety recommendations may result in severe
personal injury or death to you or to others. Use
caution and common sense when operating your
Cruiser
boat. Do not take unnecessary chances! Failure
to adhere to these warnings may result in severe
injury or death to you and/or others.
Read this entire manual and be aware of other
specific safety guidelines not listed below. Seek
additional safety information from the USCG and
state and local authorities. In addition to specific
safety statements noted in this manual, a general
list of safety guidelines and recommendations is
listed below:
• Your boat must comply with USCG safety
equipment regulations.
• Before each outing, check all safety equipment
such as fire extinguishers, personal flotation
devices (PFDs), flares, distress flags, flashlights
and engine emergency stop switch. Make sure
they are operable, in good condition, readily
visible and easily accessed.
• On-board equipment must always conform to
the governing federal, state and local
regulations.
• Never allow any type of spark or open flame
on-board. It may result in fire or explosion.
• Take the keys with you when you leave your
boat to keep untrained and unauthorized
persons from operating your boat.
• Know how to react correctly to adverse weather
conditions, have good navigation skills and
follow navigational rules as defined by USCG,
state and local regulations.
• Check local weather reports before casting off.
Do not leave the dock area when strong winds
and electrical storms are in the area or
predicted to be in the area.
• Seek shelter from open water if lightning is an
imminent threat.
• Tell someone of your travel plans before
departing.
• Know the weight capacity of your boat. Never
overload your boat.
2-1
Section 2
• Never operate your boat while under the
influence of drugs or alcohol.
• Look before you turn your boat. As a boater,
you are obligated to maintain a course and
speed unless it is safe to alter course and
speed. Look before you turn.
• You, as the operator, must read and understand
all operating manuals supplied with your boat
before operation.
• Whenever you are going for an outing, make
sure that at least one passenger is familiar with
the operation and safety aspects of your boat in
case of emergency.
• Do not allow passengers to sit in front of the
operator; always avoid obstructing the
operator’s view.
• Show all passengers the location of emergency
equipment and explain how to use it.
• Never allow passengers to drag their feet or
hands in the water, or sit on the bow, bow pulpit,
deck or gunwale while the engine is running.
• Never use or hold onto the boarding platform
while the engine is running.
• Never stand or allow passengers to stand in the
boat or sit on the transom, seat backs, engine
cover or sides of the boat while the engine is
running. You or others may be thrown from your
boat.
• Children and nonswimmers must wear a life
jacket at all times.
• Never leave children in the boat without adult
supervision.
• Improper operation of your boat is extremely
dangerous.
• Securely attach the engine emergency stop
switch lanyard to a part of your clothing, such
as a belt loop, when operating your boat.
• Operate slowly in congested areas such as
marinas and mooring areas.
• The bow may be slippery. Do not go forward
while the engine is running.
• Slow down when crossing waves or wake in
order to minimize the impact on passengers
and the boat.
• Never dive from your boat without being
absolutely sure of the depth of the water;
severe injury or death may occur from striking
the bottom or submerged objects.
2-2
• Never swim near a boat when the engine is
running. Even if the boat is in the NEUTRAL
position, the propeller may still be turning and
carbon monoxide may be present.
• Never wrap ski lines or mooring lines around
any body part. You could become entangled in
the line if you fall overboard while the boat is
moving.
• Keep track of ski lines and dock lines so they do
not become entangled in the propeller.
• Watch for other boats, swimmers and
obstructions in the water. Stay away from other
boats and personal watercraft.
• Have an experienced operator at the helm and
always have at least three people present for
safe towing – one to drive, one to observe, and
one to ski or ride.
• Never replace your boat’s marine parts with
automotive parts (if applicable).
• Never remove or modify any components of the
fuel system. Always have qualified personnel
perform fuel system maintenance. Tampering
with fuel components may cause a hazardous
condition.
• Avoid contact with engine exhaust gases –
engine exhaust contains carbon monoxide.
• Never operate the engine in a confined space.
• Never go under the boat cover with the engine
running or shortly after the engine has been
running.
• Allow adequate ventilation with fresh air before
entering any enclosed areas.

SAFETY DECALS AND
STATEMENTS
Safety Decals
Your boat is affixed with various hazard and
safety decals at the time of manufacture. These
decals appear in specific locations on the boat
and on equipment where safety is of particular

colorless and odorless gas
produced by all engines,
fuel-burning appliances, and any
material that contains carbon and is burned.
• Even with the best boat design and
construction, plus the utmost care in inspection,
operation and maintenance, hazardous levels
of CO may still be present in accommodation
areas under certain conditions. To reduce CO
accumulation, always provide adequate
ventilation in the boat interior by opening the
deck hatches, windows or canvas.
• Do not confuse carbon monoxide poisoning
with seasickness, intoxication or heat stress. If
someone complains of irritated eyes,
headache, nausea, weakness, dizziness or
drowsiness, or you suspect carbon monoxide
poisoning, immediately move the person to
fresh air, investigate the cause and take
corrective action. Seek medical attention if

Section 2
Fire Extinguishing System
Some stern drive boats are equipped with an
optional Automatic Fire Extinguishing System for
an engine compartment fire. The system is
automatically actuated when temperatures reach
or exceed a preset limit.
When actuation occurs, a loud popping sound
may be heard followed by “rushing” air sound.
When a discharge occurs, immediately shut
down all electrical and mechanical systems
including engine and powered ventilation
(blowers).
Engine Emergency Stop Switch
and Lanyard
The engine emergency stop switch is an
extremely important safety precaution. Use the
engine emergency stop switch when operating
the boat’s engine. This safety device prevents
your boat from becoming a runaway if you are
accidentally thrown from the seat or away from
the helm.
Figure 2-9

Life Jackets
Figure 2-10
All passengers on Class I, II and III boats must
wear a USCG-approved Type I, II, III or V life
jacket.
TYPE I
All Class I, II and III boats must have one
USCG-approved Type IV throwable Personal
Flotation Device (PFD) on-board.
Children and nonswimmers must always wear a
life jacket when boating. All life jackets and PFDs
must be in a readily accessible area and within
immediate reach.
All passengers must know the location of the life
jackets and how to wear and adjust them. Follow
the manufacturer’s instructions for proper use,
care and operation of the life jacket.
Each USCG-approved life jacket on-board must:
• Clearly show the manufacturer’s name
• Clearly show the USCG approval label and
number
• Be an appropriate size and type for each
person on-board
• Be in good, usable condition
Selecting the proper life jacket application type
and size is important to your safety while boating.
There are four application types of wearable
PFDs and one type that is used only for throwing
in emergency situations. Life jackets may include
inherently buoyant designs (do not require
inflation) or inflatable (manual and manual with
automatic backup). Life jacket sizes generally
correspond to chest size and weight.
Type I
This life jacket is designed so that the person
wearing it turns to a face-up position when
conscious or unconscious. Type I life jackets are
the most buoyant and are effective on all waters,
especially when rescue is delayed or flotation
time is extended.
KC-0003-A
Figure 2-10
Type II
This life jacket is recommended for use in calm
water near shore on most inland waters where
quick rescue is likely. A Type II life jacket is similar
to a Type I life jacket, but is not as buoyant or
effective in turning the wearer to a face-up
position.
Figure 2-11
TYPE II
KC-0006-A
Figure 2-11
Type III
This life jacket is designed for personal buoyancy
when the wearer is alert and conscious. Type III
life jackets require users to turn themselves to a
face-up position. Type III life jackets are
recommended in most inland water applications
where quick rescue is likely or when used in the
presence of other people.

Section 2
Type IV
Children’s Life Jackets
These PFDs are designed to be thrown to a
person in the water who can grab and hold it
while being rescued. Never wear a Type IV PFD.
All life jackets are clearly labeled with the
appropriate weight range. Check the label to
match the weight range of your child. To check for
a good fit, pick the child up by the shoulders of
the life jacket. If the life jacket fits, the child’s chin
and ears will not slip through.
Figure 2-13
TYPE IV
KC-0007-A
Figure 2-13
Type V
This life jacket is designed for special activities
and may be worn instead of a Type I, II or III life
jacket if used in accordance with the approval
conditions on the label. If a Type V life jacket is
part of the minimum on-board life jacket
requirements and if it has a label that indicates
“required to be worn,” it must be worn at all times,
otherwise one additional Type I, II or III life jacket
must be on-board to satisfy the minimum life
jacket requirements. Some Type V life jackets
provide increased protection against
hypothermia.
Figure 2-14
TYPE V
KC-0005-A
Figure 2-14
Other special life jackets are available for skiing
and other water sports. These life jackets are
constructed with materials suitable for
high-impact falls. When selecting these life
jackets, ensure that they meet USCG approval
requirements.
Note: Inflatable USCG-approved life jackets are
not to be used by persons under the age of 16.
2-10
Children weighing between 30 and 50 pounds
may like the freedom of movement that a Type III
life jacket provides; however, a Type I or Type II
life jacket will usually offer greater protection for
most children in this weight range, especially
those who cannot swim.
• Use a life jacket with a collar that turns a child’s
face up in the water. It must have strong straps
and buckles, a handle on the collar and,
preferably, be bright yellow or orange in color for
high visibility.
• Attach a plastic safety whistle to the life jacket.
Teach the child how to use the whistle, and
practice using it and signaling for help.
Note: Inflatable USCG-approved life jackets are
not to be used by persons under the age of 16.
Visual Distress Signaling
Devices
Boats less than 16 feet (4.9 meters) must have
USCG-approved Visual Distress Signals (VDS)
on-board when operating between sunrise and
sunset in coastal waters, including ocean bays,
gulfs and sounds, as well as the Great Lakes,
seas, bays and river mouths that are 2 or more
miles wide and only to the point proceeding
inland where the water narrows to less than 2
miles. Visit the U.S. Coast Guard website for
additional information on specific VDS
requirements for your boat.

to fishermen and all others with whom you
share the water.
• Always ensure that all water sports participants
and occupants of the boat, especially the
operator, are fully aware at all times of the
participants’ condition and location in the water,
as well as the surrounding environment.
• Make safety the primary concern of all involved
during the activity. Only allow safe and capable
participants to engage in the activity.
• The boat operator and water sports participants
must always know their limitations in the activity
and never exceed them.
• Never perform water sports in or near:
• Congested areas
• Restricted areas
• Navigation or other waterway markers
• Other boats
• Other water sports participants
• Obstructions in the water
• Shorelines
• Shallow water
• Hazardous weather conditions
• Hazardous waterways, rapid moving
water, dams, spillways, etc.
• Areas or times of restricted visibility
• Hours between sunset and sunrise
• Locations too far from shore that could
hinder immediate rescue or emergency
help if needed
• Always engage in water sports activities in safe
waterways only.
• Always attach the water sports tow rope to
approved attachment points on your boat.
2-13
Section 2
• Never jump from a boat that is moving at any
speed, and do not enter or exit the water when
the engine is running.
• Never use different length ropes simultaneously
for water sports activities.
• Always make sure that participants know and
use approved skiing hand signals and common
skiing courtesy.
• Before starting, always agree to speed and
communication hand signals between the boat
operator, spotter/observer and participants.
• Before starting, always inspect the water sports
equipment and tow eye, tow point and towline
for safe operating condition, or damage that
may lead to failure.
Boat Operator Specific Guidelines
The following guidelines are for the boat operator
while a participant is in the water.

other than the boat operator on-board to ensure
the safety of the participants in the water and
provide communication to and from the boat
operator and the participants.
• Always turn the engine off from a safe distance
when approaching participants in the water and
allow them to reach the boat. Never run the
engine near a person in the water.
• Never operate your boat in reverse to retrieve
anyone in the water.
• Always return immediately to a fallen water
sports participant. Always approach the
participant on the operator’s side while keeping
the participant in view from a direction opposite
the wind or seas.
• Never drive directly at a person in the water or
directly behind another boat.
• Always maintain a safe distance from people
and objects in and on the water.
• Always look in the direction you plan to turn
before turning your boat to pick up a fallen skier.
• Never retrieve any object from the water while
the engine is running.
• Always keep the skier in view when the skier is
entering or exiting the boat.
• Always watch the skier as the line begins to

BOATING REGULATIONS AND
YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES
The U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) is the federal
authority on U.S. coastal and inland waterways,
but state and local regulations may exist that
exceed USCG regulations. The purpose of all of
these regulations is to assist the boating public
and maintain navigational order on waterways.
Many state equipment requirements go beyond
USCG requirements. Contact your state and local
boating authorities for further information.

BOAT OWNER /
OPERATOR
RESPONSIBILITIES
As a boat owner/operator, understand and be
aware of USCG federal regulations as well as
state and local regulations where you operate
your boat. Boating regulations include, but are not
limited to, boat regulations, boat equipment
regulations and navigational regulations.
Cruiser
You must have on-board at all times all
mandatory safety and boat equipment as
regulated by the governing authorities. All
equipment must be maintained in proper working
order.
SAFETY
As a boat owner/operator, you are legally
responsible for your safety, the safety of your
passengers and the safety of other boaters. In
addition, you are responsible for the operation
and navigation of your boat under all operating
conditions. Your boat must be in compliance with
USCG safety equipment regulations.
REGISTRATION
The USCG requires that all power boats operated
on the navigable waters of the United States be
currently registered in the state in which they are
principally used. Many states require current
registration in that state whenever boating on
waters within their state boundary. Always contact
your state boating authorities (and authorities in
neighboring states) for registration information on
boats and trailers.
Registration numbers must be current and clearly
displayed on the boat according to the defined
regulations. Registration certificates must be
current and on-board at all times.
State and local authorities may require additional
registration for boating on certain waterways.
Check with state and local authorities for
additional registration information.

Section 3
INSURANCE
As a boat owner, you are legally responsible for
any damage or injury caused when you or
someone else is operating your boat when an
accident or collision occurs. Individual states
have laws detailing minimum insurance needs.
Contact your insurance agent to verify the type of
insurance you need BEFORE operating your new
boat.
REPORTING
ACCIDENTS
The USCG requires the owner/operator of a boat
involved in an accident to report the incident to
the proper marine law enforcement agency for
the state in which the accident occurred. If a
person dies or disappears as a result of a
recreational boating accident, the boat
owner/operator must immediately notify the
nearest state boating authority. If a person dies or
injuries requiring more than first aid are involved,
the owner/operator must file a formal report within
48 hours of the accident. An owner/operator has
10 days to file a formal report for accidents
exceeding $500 in property damage or complete
loss of boat.
OPERATION BY
MINORS
Minors must always be supervised by an adult
whenever operating a boat. Many states have
laws regarding the minimum age and licensing
requirements of minors. Regulations may vary
from state to state. Contact your local and state
boating authorities for specific information.
BOATING UNDER THE
INFLUENCE
Federal and state laws prohibit the operation of a
boat while under the influence of alcohol or drugs,
and authorities actively enforce these regulations.
If the operator’s blood alcohol content is 0.08% or
above, violators are subject to civil and criminal
penalties and imprisonment. Operating a boat
under the influence can also result in a loss of
motor vehicle driving privileges.
3-2
Alcohol and drugs slow your reaction time and
affect your judgment. This type of impaired
operation may result in death or severe personal
injury.
As the owner/operator, you are responsible for
the alcohol and drug use, as well as on-board
behavior, of your passengers.
Regulations and penalties for operators and
passengers may vary from state to state. Contact
your local and state boating authorities for
specific information.

OPERATOR’S LICENSE
AND EDUCATION
This manual does not provide complete training
on all aspects of boating safety, operation or
regulations. Boating authorities highly
recommend that all boat operators and
passengers seek additional training in boating
safety and seamanship from a USCG-approved
course.
Some states require youths 16 years of age and
younger to complete a boating safety course
before operating any watercraft. Many others
require operators under the age of 18 to be
licensed in small boat operation.
Check with your state and local authorities for
requirements of operator’s license, certificate or
training before you or anyone operates your boat.
See References and Contact Information on
page 1-3 for a list of some of the agencies and
organizations that offer water/boating safety
courses, first aid/CPR, or other recommended
training and/or information.
Cruiser
Boating Regulations and Your Responsibilities
EMERGENCY
ASSISTANCE
If you see a distress signal or suspect a boat is in
trouble, you must assume it is a real emergency
and render assistance immediately. By law, the
operator in charge of the boat is obligated to
provide assistance to any individual in danger if
such assistance can be provided safely. Failure to
render assistance can result in a fine and/or
imprisonment. The 1971 Boating Safety Act
grants protection to a “Good Samaritan” boater
providing good faith assistance, and absolves a
boater from any civil liability arising from such
assistance.
PROTECTING THE
ENVIRONMENT
As a boat owner/operator, you are responsible for
protecting wildlife and the natural environment by
keeping waterways clean. There is currently a
tremendous drain on our natural resources.
Excessive fishing and hunting, as well as
pollution, have strained the fish and game
population. Do your part by keeping only what
you will eat; practice catch-and-release and obey
bag limits.
FISHING
Fishing can be very exciting and distracting for
the operator when the action gets intense. You
must always be conscious of the fact that your
primary responsibility is the safe operation of your
boat and the safety of your passengers and other
boats in the area.
You must always make sure the helm is properly
manned and is never left unattended while
trolling. If your boat is equipped with a tower,
caution and good common sense must be
exercised whenever someone is in the tower.
Remember, weight in the tower raises your boat’s
center of gravity and your boat’s motion is greatly
exaggerated for the person in a tower.
If you are fishing in an area that is crowded with
other fishing boats, it may be difficult to follow the
rules of the road. This situation can become
especially difficult when many boats are trolling.
Cruiser
Being courteous and exercising good common
sense is essential. Avoid trying to assert your
right-of-way and concentrate on staying clear and
preventing tangled or cut lines and other
unpleasant encounters with other boats. Also
keep in mind that fishing line wrapped around a
propeller shaft can damage seals in the engine
lower unit.
FOREIGN SPECIES
TRANSPORTATION
If you trailer your boat from lake to lake, you may
unknowingly introduce a foreign aquatic species
from one lake to the next. Thoroughly clean your
boat below the waterline, remove all weeds and
algae, and drain the bilge and livewells before
launching your boat in a new body of water.
WAKE
As a boat owner/operator, you are responsible for
the wake your boat creates. Regulations may
vary from state to state. Contact your local and
state boating authorities for specific information,
as you may be responsible for any damage or
injury your wake causes. Always be alert for NO
WAKE zones and be courteous of others while
boating. Excessive and unexpected wakes can
cause dangerous and even life-threatening
situations.
NOISE
As a boat owner/operator, you are responsible for
the noise your boat creates. Many state and local
boating authorities enforce noise limits that may
restrict engine noise, radio volume or even loud
talking. Regulations may vary from state to state.
Contact your local and state boating authorities
for specific information.
SPEED
As a boat owner/operator, you are responsible for
maintaining your boat under control at a safe
speed. Many state and local boating authorities
enforce speed limits. Regulations may vary from
state to state. Contact your local and state
boating authorities for specific information.

Section 3
POLLUTION
REGULATIONS
Federal Oil Pollution Act of
1990
The discharge of any type of debris or waste into
the water, including, but not limited to, food, trash,
garbage, oil, fuel, liquids and human waste, is
highly restricted and sometimes considered
unlawful. Authorities highly recommend that you
NEVER discharge anything into the water.
The Federal Oil Pollution Act of 1990 was passed
by Congress to prevent further oil spills from
occurring in the U.S. As a boat owner, be familiar
with your liability under this act, as you may be
liable for the cost of actions in the prevention
and/or removal of, or damage from, oil spills
created by you.
Become familiar with the following pollution
regulations. Pollution is a serious matter, and law
enforcement authorities highly enforce these
regulations. As a boat owner/operator, you are
responsible for your actions affecting the
environment; therefore, you must fully understand
and be aware of these regulations. Contact the
USCG, state and local authorities for additional
information.
MARPOL Treaty
The USCG enforces the International Convention
for the Prevention of Pollution from ships,
commonly referred to as the MARPOL Treaty
(MARine POLlution). This treaty prohibits the
overboard dumping of all ship-generated plastics,
chemicals, garbage and oil. Contact the USCG
for further information.
Federal Water Pollution Control
Act
The Federal Water Pollution Control Act prohibits
the discharge of oil or hazardous, potentially
harmful substances into U.S. navigable waters.
Boats at least 26 feet (7.9 meters) in length must
display a placard at least 5 x 8 inches (127 x 203
mm), made of durable material, fixed in a
conspicuous place in the machinery spaces, or at
the bilge pump control station, stating the
following:
Discharge of Oil Prohibited
The Federal Water Pollution Control Act prohibits the
discharge of oil or oily waste upon or into any navigable
waters of the U.S. The prohibition includes any discharge
which causes a film or discoloration of the surface of the
water or causes a sludge or emulsion beneath the
surface of the water. Violators are subject to substantial
civil and/or criminal sanctions including fines and
imprisonment.

EMERGENCIES
Be prepared to deal with emergencies before
they happen. Try to formulate a plan for each type
of emergency in advance so you can make
decisions quickly and without hesitation. Precious
moments lost can mean the difference between
losing and saving a life.
Before operating your boat, see Safety on
page 2-1.
FIRST AID / MEDICAL
EMERGENCIES
Every second counts toward preventing injury or
death in case of a medical emergency. Boaters
must have proper training and take necessary
preventive measures to properly assist in times of
need. Carrying an adequate and current first aid
kit is critical in the immediate response and care
of someone in need of medical attention. Always
have dry blankets readily accessible to help
prevent hypothermia. For additional information
on medical, first aid and safety training such as
CPR, contact your state and local authorities, or
visit the Red Cross website:
http://www.redcross.org
EMERGENCY
PREPARATION
CHECKLIST
In addition to a safety equipment list, have an
emergency checklist on-board to assist in times
of emergency. Use the following topics as a
guideline to develop a list of emergency
procedures and instructions for the use of visual
and audible distress signaling devices, radios,
first aid kits and all related information that could
assist you or others in the event of an emergency.
Cruiser
CARBON MONOXIDE
POISONING
DANGER! Carbon Monoxide (CO) is a
colorless and odorless gas produced by all
engines, fuel-burning appliances, and any
material that contains carbon and is burned.
Do not confuse carbon monoxide poisoning with
seasickness, intoxication or heat stress. If
someone complains of irritated eyes, headache,
nausea, weakness, dizziness or drowsiness, or
you suspect carbon monoxide poisoning,
immediately move the person to fresh air,
investigate the cause, and take corrective action.
Seek medical attention if necessary.
For additional information, see Carbon
Monoxide on page 2-5.
USING DISTRESS
SIGNAL DEVICES AND
CALLING FOR HELP
Ensure all passengers understand how to
operate all on-board visual and audible distress
signaling devices and communication equipment.
Keep all distress signaling devices and
communication equipment in a readily accessible
area and within immediate reach at all times.
An emergency can occur when you least expect
it. Be sure you and your passengers know how to
use all types of distress signaling devices.
Seconds count during emergencies. Knowing the
proper way to use the distress signaling devices
on-board your vessel can help saves lives.
The word “MAYDAY” is the international signal of
distress. Use “MAYDAY” only in emergency
situations.
4-1
Section 4
In emergency situations and when lives are in
danger, you may need to use VHF-type two-way
radios, cell phones and Emergency Position
Indication Radio Beacons (EPIRBs). Knowing the
proper use and operation of these communication
devices is critical. Make sure you know what
channels to use and numbers to call. Know how
to send an efficient and informative message
about your emergency to ensure that proper help
and assistance can be provided.
FIRE AND EXPLOSION
The VHF-type radio channel commonly used for
communicating distress, safety and urgent calls is
Channel 16.
• Static electricity can be generated while fueling
and can cause a fire or explosion. To prevent
electrostatic spark when refueling, make sure
the nozzle is in contact with the fill pipe at all
times.
DANGER! Gasoline is extremely flammable
and highly explosive under certain
conditions.
• Do not smoke or allow open flames or sparks
nearby when refueling.
• Do not store fuel in any containers or
compartments which are not designated for fuel
storage.
• Avoid damaging fuel lines and connectors and
make sure fuel does not contact hot engine
parts.
KC-0246-A
Figure 4-1
To contact the USCG for an emergency while on
the water, always use your on-board VHF-FM
radio (Channel 16). Use cell phones only as a
secondary means of communication. The number
to call within the U.S. is 911.
• Do not confuse the fuel fill deck plate with the
water or waste fill plates, if equipped. All deck
plates are properly labeled. If fuel is
accidentally pumped into any other deck plate,
do not attempt to pump it out yourself. Water
and waste pumps are not designed to pump
fuel and a fire or explosion could result. Contact
your dealer to have the fuel professionally
removed.
• USCG-approved fire extinguishers are required
on all Class I, II and III boats.
For additional information on the safe and proper
use of distress signaling devices and the safe and
proper use of emergency communication
equipment, contact your state and local
authorities. Additional information can be found

Cruiser
Emergencies
a fire plan in advance to make that decision
quickly and without hesitation. Keep in mind the
following guidelines:
back and throw the PFD from a safe distance. If a
Type IV PFD is not readily available, any life
jacket or floating device will suffice.
• Many fires are the result of gasoline and oil
accumulating in the bilge, careless fueling
practices and electrical problems. In the event
of a fire, try to stop your boat and turn off the
engine as quickly and safely as possible.
Immediately use a fire extinguisher at the base
of the flames in a sweeping motion to reduce or
extinguish the fire. Ensure that all passengers
are safe from immediate danger and are
wearing PFDs. If the fire is located in the engine
compartment (if equipped), make sure the bilge
blower (if equipped) is off and do not open the
engine cover.
• Once you have extinguished the fire, check for
other immediate fire threats and personal
injuries and call for assistance immediately.
• If you are unable to easily extinguish the fire, or
if the fire is uncontrollable, attempt to get
yourself and all passengers off your boat and
into the water. If possible, ensure that all
passengers are wearing PFDs or have access
to one by the time they are in the water. Before
leaving the boat, if possible, verify that there is
no immediate danger of fuel sitting or burning
on the water’s surface where you and your
passengers will be floating. Immediately swim
to a safe position upwind from your boat and
use distress signals to get assistance.
Someone in your boat must keep the victim in
sight at all times. It is the captain’s responsibility
to assign one person to watch the victim.
MAN OVERBOARD
If someone falls into the water unexpectedly, use
the following guidelines. Every second counts
toward preventing injury or death.
At the first sign that a person has fallen
overboard, loudly yell “Man overboard!” and state
the position of the person in relation to the boat
(Example: “Man overboard - port!”).
Carefully navigate back to the victim, staying at a
safe distance and position to safely retrieve the
victim.
Avoid going into the water to assist the victim
unless there is absolutely no way to retrieve the
victim safely from your boat and there is no
chance of endangering others.
CAPSIZING AND
FLOODING
A boat may capsize or flood when you least
expect it. Formulate a plan in advance in case of
capsizing or flooding. Review the following
guidelines:
• If your boat capsizes, locate all passengers and
guide them to a safe flotation device or the
forward hull if your boat is floating upside down.
• If possible, provide life jackets to all persons in
the water and assess them for alertness and
injuries.
• STAY WITH THE BOAT! Climb up on the hull
and try to get assistance.
• Do not try to swim to shore as it can be farther
than it appears.
If your boat starts to flood, slow the boat to a safe
speed and stop as quickly as possible. Activate
the bilge pump(s) immediately. Try to locate the
cause of the flooding. If the cause is not readily
apparent or not easily corrected, head for shore
or shallow water as quickly as possible and call
for help.
Set the engine(s) throttles at idle and place the
gear controls in the NEUTRAL position
immediately.
Throw a Type IV PFD to the victim immediately if
the PFD will be within reach of the victim. If the
victim is too far away to throw a PFD to, navigate

RUNNING AGROUND
When a boat runs aground, the stop is usually
abrupt. Because passengers are not secured to a
seat, abruptly stopping a boat while in motion can
cause serious personal injury or even death.
First, turn off the engine(s) immediately, locate all
passengers and attend to any injuries, calling for
emergency assistance as needed. Then, assess
the damage to your boat and determine if there
are any other immediate threats such as water
leaking into your boat, or fuel or flammable
materials leaking into the water or inside your
boat. Immediately call for assistance if threats
exist that could endanger the safety of
passengers.
If there are no immediate safety threats to
passengers and your boat is not damaged,
attempt to propel it away from the obstacle. If the
engine or drive system has been damaged and
the engine restarts, be aware of excessive
vibrations or uncommon noises, which usually
indicate damage to the drive system. If this is the
case, it is not safe to proceed. Call for emergency
or professional towing assistance immediately.
WARNING! Use extreme caution when using
tow lines and when connecting tow lines to
cleats. Death or serious injury could occur
when lines and/or cleats fail while they are
under extreme tension.
If the engine restarts and your boat can be
navigated back safely to port, proceed slowly
back to port and be ready to call for emergency
assistance if needed. Even if your boat and
engine appear to be in good operating condition
after running aground, have the boat inspected by
4-4
Take special precautions when encountering or
operating in dangerous or hazardous weather
conditions.
For additional information, see Severe
Weather on page 5-1.
ENGINE OR BOAT
SYSTEM FAILURE
In the event of an engine or boat system failure
and when not in immediate danger, try to
troubleshoot or identify the problem before calling
for assistance.
For additional information, see
Troubleshooting on page 12-1.
ACCIDENTS,
COLLISIONS AND
GIVING ASSISTANCE
A collision or accident may occur when you least
expect it. Formulate a course of action in advance
in case of a collision or accident. Keep in mind
the following guidelines:
• If an accident or collision occurs involving your
boat, locate all passengers first and verify and
secure their safety. Check for injuries and
provide all passengers with a flotation device.
• Once you have determined that your
passengers are not in danger, provide
assistance to passengers on the other boat.
• Immediately call for help and then assess the
damage to the boats. Render necessary
assistance to prevent further damage or
personal injury.
The USCG requires the owner/operator of a boat
involved in an accident to report the incident
immediately to the proper marine law
enforcement agency for the state in which the
accident occurred.
Cruiser
Emergencies
If you witness or are aware of an accident or
collision while boating, you must report it
immediately and provide assistance.
If you see a distress signal or suspect a boat is in
trouble, you must assume it is a real emergency
and render assistance immediately. Once you
have determined that a real emergency exists,
call for help immediately and then provide
assistance to all passengers to ensure their
safety.
TOWING ON THE
WATER
If you encounter a situation where you are asked
to tow or be towed for any reason, assess the
situation and try to contact a professional towing
service or other emergency assistance first.
When encountering a boat in distress, always
offer emergency or safety assistance and/or call
for assistance for the distressed parties if
necessary. Towing or being towed presents an
increased risk of personal injury and boat
damage.
BOW

EYE
TOW LINE
KC-0058-A
Figure 4-4
• Never attempt to tow a grounded, damaged or
capsized boat.
• Use a tow line that is rated at least four times
the gross weight of the boat being towed.
• Make sure tow lines are in good condition and
are free of damage, cuts or abrasions.
• Attach a tow line to the bow eye on the disabled
boat. Never attach a tow line to any point on the
disabled boat other than the bow eye.
• Attach the tow line to the stern eyes of the tow
boat. Wrap the tow line with chafing gear where
it rubs against the boat or any corners.
• Leave at least two boat lengths between the
boats for adequate movement.
• Never allow anyone to be in line with the tow
line. If the line breaks or pulls free, dangerous
recoil could occur, resulting in severe injury or
death to anyone in its path.
• Adjust the tow line to match wave action. Keep
the boats on the crest or in the trough of the
waves at the same time. In protected, calm
waters, shorten the line for better handling.
• Tow at moderate speed, allowing for adverse
wind and wave conditions.
• Have the operator of the towed boat steer with
you if possible.
• Have a person on the tow boat watch the
disabled vehicle and, if necessary, be available
to signal the operator of the disabled boat.
Check with local and state authorities prior to
towing for additional regulations and restrictions
on towing other boats or equipment.
WARNING! Use extreme caution when using
tow lines and when connecting tow lines to
cleats. Death or serious injury could occur if
lines and/or cleats fail while they are under
extreme tension.
Follow these guidelines when towing or being
towed:
• Use extreme caution when throwing weighted
lines to a boat in distress. When in rough seas,
use a light throwing line with a weight secured
on the throwing end and a heavier towing line
secured to the other end.
• Never attempt to tow a boat larger or heavier
than your own.

SEVERE WEATHER
Getting caught in severe weather can be
dangerous and even fatal. Check with local
weather stations, the USCG or weather-service
broadcasts (162.55 or 162.40 MHz) for the latest
conditions. Check the weather not only before
you go out on the water, but also periodically
while you are on the water. Consult the following
websites for weather information:
• www.weather.com
• www.nws.noaa.gov
• www.navcen.uscg.gov
Storm Conditions
Take the following precautions if you operate your
boat in storm conditions:
• Have all occupants wear life jackets.
• Turn on navigation lights.
• Locate and have inclement weather gear and
safety equipment ready.
• Mark or identify your position.
• Close all ports, stow all gear and secure any
loose equipment on deck.
• Reduce speed and head for port or a safe,
easily reachable place.
• Keep a lookout for debris and obstructions in
the water.
• When possible, head into the waves at a 45
degree angle. Allowing high waves to strike the
side of your boat may cause it to capsize or
swamp.
• If you lose power, keep your boat headed into
the waves by rigging a sea anchor off the bow.
Cruiser
Fog Conditions
Avoid operating your boat in foggy weather, if
possible. If you encounter fog conditions, return
to port immediately. Also, take the following
precautions:
• Reduce speed to a safe speed or idle.
• Take bearings and log your course and speed
before the fog sets in. Use of a GPS is
recommended.
• Have all occupants wear life jackets.
• Assign lookouts to the bow and stern to keep
watch and listen.
• While navigating in fog, you must sound a
five-second blast from your horn or whistle once
every two minutes to alert other boaters of your
position.
• If you determine that it is unsafe to continue
navigating your boat, quickly find the best
position to anchor. You must sound a
five-second blast from your horn or whistle once
every minute while anchored to alert other
boaters of your position.
Reduced Visibility
Natural environments and inclement weather can
cause reduced visibility. Storm condition hazards
can be compounded by reduced visibility while on
the water. Always use common sense and take
safety precautions if you are operating your boat
in reduced visibility conditions.
5-1
Section 5
Cold Weather and Cold or
Frozen Water Conditions
Avoid operating your boat in cold water or
weather conditions, and never operate in frozen
or icy waters. Operating in these conditions
significantly increases the risk of serious injury or
death. Boating in these conditions can lead to
cold-water immersion, shock or hypothermia.
Weather conditions may hinder emergency
rescue or assistance, and cold weather poses
potential problems for on-board equipment, as
well as the engine. See the Engine Operator’s
Manual and the equipment manufacturer’s
instructions for operating in cold weather.
WATER HAZARDS
Every waterway poses hazards that you must be
aware of and avoid. These hazards include
shallow water, tree stumps and sand bars. Ask
local authorities and other boaters for information
and consult a marine chart when boating on
unfamiliar waters. As a boat operator, try to avoid
all hazards, known and unknown.
Aquatic Vegetation / Weeds
Operating in weeded areas can be extremely
hazardous. Aquatic vegetation can be a threat to
your boat’s drive system. Vegetation and weeds
can wrap around the propeller, causing loss of
propulsion and steering control. They may also
restrict the engine water cooling intake, causing
the engine to overheat. Avoid operating in or near
vegetation. If you encounter any restriction
because of vegetation, stop the engine. See the
Engine Operator’s Manual for recommendations
on the removal of vegetation from the propeller
and water cooling intake ports. Be extremely
careful and never get into the water when clearing
the propeller. Stay out of the water in highly
congested vegetative areas, which can severely
restrict your mobility and create a life-threatening
situation. NOTICE: Vegetation can sometimes be
removed by shifting to NEUTRAL, pausing a
moment, then shifting to REVERSE to unwind the
vegetation from the propeller.
5-2
Dams and Spillways
The waterways around dams and spillways are
extremely hazardous. Dams and spillways are
subject to rapid water flow changes, and may
have floating and sunken debris in the nearby
water. These areas are often marked as
restricted, and it is best to always stay clear of
them.
Shallow Water Operation
Operating in shallow water presents a number of
hazards. Sandbars in narrow inlets are constantly
shifting, making it difficult to mark them with
buoys. Sandbars are sometimes indicated by
waves as they form into breakers when passing
over the sandbar. In coastal areas, tides can
affect water level as much as 30 feet (9 meters).
Check with local marinas or Coast Guard stations
for tide tables and current charts.
RESTRICTED AREAS
Some waterways and areas are restricted.
Always check with local, state and federal
authorities to identify restricted areas. Because of
the threat of terrorism, the USCG has
implemented and will continue to enforce strict
limits on watercraft near U.S. Navy and Coast
Guard ships and other potential targets. For more
information, contact the USCG or local
authorities.
MARKERS, WARNINGS
AND ADVISORIES
Find out from local authorities if hazards exist in
areas where you intend to navigate, and know
how these hazards are marked. You must also
recognize flag designs that indicate hazards or
activities that are present and keep well clear of
those areas. Always watch for swimmers and stay
clear of all swimming areas, marked or
unmarked.

NAVIGATION RULES AND AIDS
Before operating your boat, see Safety on
page 2-1.
The General Prudential Rule
The following information outlines basic
navigational rules. Boating regulations are
enforced by USCG, state and local authorities.
You are subject to marine navigation regulations
for both federal and state waterways. For more
information, contact the USCG, state and local
marine authorities. The navigational rules for U.S.
waterways can be found in the “Navigational
Rules” publication. This publication can be found
at most marine supply stores, or you may contact
the USCG or visit:
AUDIBLE DISTRESS
SIGNALS
www.navcen.uscg.gov/mwv/NavRules to view or
download the publication.
Any boat 39 feet (12 meters) or longer must have
a copy of the “Navigational Rules” publication
on-board at all times. Failure to have this
document on-board can result in penalties and/or
fines.
RIGHT-OF-WAY
Boats with less maneuverability have right-of-way
over more agile boats. You must stay clear of a
boat with right-of-way. Examples of boats with
right-of-way are:
•
•
•
•
Boats aground or not under command
Boats with restricted maneuverability
Boats engaged in fishing
Non-motor boats (having no power propulsion),
i.e., rowboats, paddle boats, canoes and
sailboats
Small pleasure craft must yield right-of-way to
large commercial boats in narrow channels. A
boat with right-of-way is sometimes referred to as
the privileged boat.
The general prudential rule regarding right-of-way
is if a collision appears unavoidable, neither boat
has right-of-way. Both boats must act to avoid
collision.
It is not necessary to sound a signal every time a
boat is nearby. It is typical for boat operators to
signal their intention, using a whistle, horn or bell,
to avoid potentially confusing or hazardous
situations. Privileged boat operators customarily
signal first, then the yielding boat operators return
the same signal to acknowledge they understand
and will comply. Use the danger signal (five or
more short, rapid blasts) if intent is not clear.
Use the following signal blasts early enough so
other boaters notice and understand them:
Audible

NAVIGATIONAL LIGHTS
AND NIGHT
OPERATION
Navigational lights alert other boats to your
presence and course, especially when operating
at night or in restricted visibility conditions.
Regulations require that navigational lights be
clearly lit and properly displayed at all times
between sunset and sunrise, and always when
Cruiser

Section 6
operating in reduced visibility. Where applicable,
lights must appear on the sides, stern, masthead
and all-around positions.
OVERTAKING /
PASSING
All navigational rules apply at night, but speed is
restricted on many waterways. Night boaters
must operate at a slow, safe speed and stay clear
of all boats, regardless of which boat has
right-of-way.
The boat overtaking or passing must yield
right-of-way to the boat being passed. The
overtaking boat must make any adjustments
necessary to keep out of the way of the boat
being passed. The boat being passed has the
right-of-way and must hold its course and speed.
Protect your night vision by avoiding bright lights.
If possible, have a passenger help keep watch for
other boats, water hazards and aids to
navigation.

another boat, you have the right-of-way. Hold
your course.
• A red light indicates the port side of the boat.
Generally, if you see a red light on another boat,
they have right-of-way and you must yield your
course.
SPEED
As the operator, you are responsible for
maintaining your boat under control at a safe
speed. Many state and local boating authorities
enforce speed limits. Regulations may vary from

MEETING HEAD-ON
CROSSING
When two boats meet head-on, neither boat has
the right-of-way. Both boats should decrease
speed, turn to the right and pass port to port. If,
however, both boats are on the left side of a
channel, each vessel should sound two short
horn blasts and pass starboard to starboard.
In crossing situations, the boat to the right from
the 12 o’clock to the 4 o’clock position has the
right-of-way and must hold course and speed.
The boat without right-of-way must yield and pass
to the stern of the privileged boat. Boats going up
and down a river have the right-of-way over boats
crossing the river.

The most commonly used buoy colors are white,
red, green, yellow and black. Buoys may be
unlighted or lighted. Some are audible; others
have both an audible and a visual signal. Lights,
bells and horns on buoys aid in night boating or
poor visibility conditions. Buoys with unique
light-flashing characteristics are identified on
nautical charts with the specific flashing pattern.
Become familiar with the specific buoys used in
the waters where you are boating. Contact local
authorities for specific information and/or
navigational aid charts for your waterways.

Daymarks / Dayboards
Daymarks or dayboards are fixed visual markers
in the water. The markers are commonly attached
to a post or piling and are sometimes
accompanied by a light. Daymarks are either red
or green and are usually triangular- or
square-shaped, though their shapes can vary.
Daymarks often display numbers, which act as
navigation guides. Red daymarks are usually
triangular and sometimes show an odd number.
Green daymarks are usually square and
sometimes show an even number. The numbers
on the markers are sequential and increase from

Lights and Lighted Structures
Maneuvering a boat at night can be dangerous
and confusing. To aid boaters with navigation and
to warn of hazards, the USCG and state and local
authorities maintain a variety of light structures.
Some light structures are equipped with radio
beacons, radar reflectors and/or fog signals.
ON RANGE LINE
Minor Lights
Minor lights are colored according to the buoyage
marking system in use. They are similar to lighted
buoys, except they are usually higher and on
more stable platforms to increase visibility. Most
minor lights are part of a series to mark a
channel, river, or harbor and fairways.

Various signs and markers are used throughout
U.S. waterways for different purposes. In Florida,
special signs are used to warn of “manatee”
areas. These signs help to control speed and/or
restrict areas from boating to conserve this
endangered species. As a boat owner and
operator, be aware of special information and
markers on the waterways. Contact your state
and local authorities for more information on local
restricted or controlled areas and their markers.

mark of two black spheres, one above the other.
On inland waters, a buoy with alternating vertical
black and white stripes may be used to indicate
that an obstruction or other danger exists
between the buoy and the nearest shore. Do not
pass between the buoy and the shore.

OPERATING YOUR BOAT
Before operating your boat, see Safety on
page 2-1.
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
! WARNING
These safety messages describe hazardous
situations which, if not avoided, could result
in death or serious injury.
Runaway Boat Hazard
Certain actions can cause you to lose control
of your boat:
• When accelerating your boat in the forward
direction, the bow can rise and restrict visibility.
Observe for obstacles and people before
accelerating.
• The rotational thrust of the propeller under rapid
acceleration can create high steering torque
and rapidly change the direction of steering,
causing loss of control.
• Do not trim the engine out too far or the boat
may begin to “porpoise” (bounce up and down).
Porpoising reduces control and visibility.
• If you lose control of your boat, pull back on the
throttle and trim in at the same time.
• Improper use of trim tabs or moving them down
at high speeds can cause an accident or injury.
BEFORE GETTING
UNDER WAY
Safety Equipment
Federal and local laws require certain safety
equipment to be on-board at all times.
Responsible boaters carry additional equipment
in case of emergency.
Float Plan
Complete a float plan before departure and leave
it with a reliable person who is aware of your
intentions while on the water. In case of
emergency or if you do not return as planned, this
information can be helpful to the USCG or others
in rescuing or contacting you. For more
information on float plans or to download a float
plan form, visit the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary
website at:
http://www.floatplan.uscgaux.info.
The following checks are essential to safe boating
and must be performed before starting the engine
or getting under way. Perform these checks every
time you operate your boat so they become
routine.
Never launch the boat or leave the safety of the
dock if any problem is found during the
pre-departure safety check. A problem could lead
to an accident during the outing, causing severe
injury or death. Have any problems corrected
before proceeding:
• Check the current and forecasted weather
reports, as well as wind and water conditions.
• Make sure the operator is qualified to operate
the boat and does not use drugs or alcohol
while at the helm.
• Make sure all required safety equipment is
on-board.
Cruiser
7-1
Section 7
• Make all passengers aware of safety
procedures.
• File a float plan.
• Have all required documents on-board.
• Have all maps or navigational charts for the
intended destination on-board.
• Be sure all passengers are properly seated.
• Be sure the boat is not overloaded.
• Check the engine emergency stop switch
lanyard for proper installation and operation.
• Be sure the fire extinguisher is fully charged.
• Check bilge drain plugs for proper installation.
• Be sure all water has been pumped from the
bilge area.
• Have plenty of emergency food and water
on-board.
• Check the bilge blower (if equipped) for proper
operation, and be sure no fumes are present in
the bilge area.
• Be sure all required equipment is on-board
(mooring lines, anchor lines, tool kit, etc.).
• Be sure you have enough fuel for the return trip.
• Check all compartments for fuel fumes.
• Check that no fuel, oil or water is leaking or has
leaked into the bilge compartment.
• Check all hoses and connections for leakage
and damage.
• Check the hull and propeller for damage.
• Check the engine cooling water intake pickup
for blockage.
• Check that batteries are fully charged and the
battery terminals are clean and tight.
• Check the electrical systems and navigation
lights for proper operation.
• Be sure no person or obstacle is near the
propeller.
• Check that the throttle/shift control is in the
NEUTRAL position.
• Check the steering system for proper operation.
• Check that all required maintenance has been
performed.
7-2
Boarding
Helpful guidelines when boarding a boat:
• Always step, rather than jump, into a boat.
• Avoid stepping on fiberglass or other potentially
slippery surfaces.
• Always board one person at a time.
• Never board while carrying gear. Set the gear
on the dock, board the boat and then pick up
the gear.
• Never use the engine unit as a boarding ramp.
• It is courteous to always ask for permission to
board so the owner/operator is aware of your
presence on the boat.
Boat Loading
The safety and performance of your boat
depends on load, weight and the distribution of
each.
The person/load capacity is determined by the
USCG. A capacity plate is usually located within
clear visibility of the boat operator or helm area.
The capacity plate indicates limits for loading the
boat, which are enforceable by law.
WARNING! NEVER exceed the USCG certified
maximum capacities under any
circumstances. Exceeding the limitations
stated on the capacity plate can cause the
boat to sink or the passengers and/or
operator to drown, resulting in death or
serious injury.
• Board passengers one at a time and distribute
them equally to maintain equal buoyancy of the
boat.
• Distribute weight equally from port to starboard
and fore to aft. The shifting of weight may be
required when under way to maintain an
efficient trim position for optimum performance.
• Stow and secure all loose gear in stowage
areas to prevent load shifting.
• Do not stow gear on top of safety equipment;
safety equipment must be quickly accessible.
• In adverse weather, reduce the load in the boat.
Person and load capacity ratings are calculated
for normal boating conditions.
Cruiser
Operating Your Boat
Be sure all passengers are properly seated and
not riding on the bow, bow pulpit, deck, gunwale
or rear sun deck while under way. Use caution
when riding in the bow. Move to the aft passenger

Fueling
The fuel filler on boats with built-in tanks is
usually located in the aft area. The fuel tank is
equipped with either a shutoff valve or antisiphon
valve. The shutoff valve requires you to manually
turn the fuel valve, while the antisiphon valve
operates automatically. Because gasoline fumes
are heavier than air, they will sink to the lowest
part of your boat, such as the bilge. Always
evacuate fumes with the bilge blower (if
equipped) before attempting to start the engine.
NOTICE: To prevent unwarranted engine
damage, see your Engine Operator’s Manual for
manufacturer-recommended fuel and oil
specifications.

• Have a proper and charged fire extinguisher
ready. WARNING! Gasoline is extremely
flammable and highly explosive under
certain conditions. See the Safety Section
for more details.
• Secure the boat to the dock.
• Stop all engines, motors and fans before
refueling.
• Never smoke or allow open flames or sparks
within 50 feet (15 meters) of the fueling area.
• Close all doors, windows, hatches and ports
that could allow fuel vapors to enter the boat’s
enclosed spaces.
• Avoid spills and know how much fuel is already
in the tank before adding fuel. Wipe up any
spills immediately.
• Always fill fuel tanks slowly. Be aware that if the
boat’s attitude changes while floating, the fuel
level and position change in the tank, which
could cause spillage.
• Never overfill the fuel tanks.
7-3
Section 7
• Always allow space (at least 6%) for expansion
of fuel in the fuel tank.
• Always be sure you are filling the proper tank;
some deck filler plates appear similar to the fuel
tank.
• Never pump fuel into an unapproved container.
• Use only fuel approved by the engine
manufacturer.
• Check for fuel leaks.
• Refuel only at safe and approved filling stations
such as marina fuel docks or automotive fuel
stations. Approved venues have safeguards in
place to lessen the likelihood of static
discharge.
• Read and follow all warnings on the pump or in
the vicinity of the pump.
• Maintain contact between the fuel nozzle and
the fill pipe at all times, before and during
refueling, to prevent an electrostatic spark.
• Keep away from the fuel tank vent to avoid
splash-back and fumes.
• Never reenter your vehicle while refueling on
land and towing your boat. Getting into and out
of your vehicle might build up a static charge
that could ignite the fumes at the fill pipe.
• If a fire occurs, do not panic, and do not remove
the nozzle from the gas tank.
• Evacuate all passengers from the vehicle and
refueling area, and immediately alert station
attendants so they can use the emergency
shutoff and fire extinguisher.
• If you are unable to pump fuel at a reasonable
speed, check the fuel tank vent for restrictions.
After refueling, observe the following:
• Operate the bilge blower (if equipped) before
the engine is started for a minimum of four
minutes.
The first time you fill your boat’s fuel tank(s) and
after each refueling, check the entire fuel system
for leaks and/or damaged parts. Leaks and/or
damaged parts must be repaired and the area
ventilated to remove explosive fumes.
• Close the fill cap(s) securely.
• Wipe up any spilled fuel completely. Dispose of
the rags properly.
• Open all doors, windows, hatches and ports to
ventilate all spaces.
• Check for fuel vapors before starting any
engines or appliances.

Operating Your Boat
GETTING UNDER WAY
The following basic boat maneuvering and
operation principles do not cover all conditions or
situations you may encounter during operation. It
is important for you and anyone else operating
the boat to have certified instruction from local
boating authorities.
Always advise all passengers on-board of your
steering, stopping and accelerating intentions to
avoid personal injury or even death.
Make sure all passengers are properly seated
and not riding on the bow, bow pulpit, deck,
gunwale or rear sun deck while under way. Use
caution when riding in the bow. Move to the aft
passenger seats during rough water operation.
the boat, the stern will push away from the
direction the steering wheel (helm) or tiller arm is
turned. The boat seems to skid across the water
while turning, which feels very different from an
automobile making a turn.
Steering in reverse has its own challenges.
Practice forward and reverse steering to gain
comfort and to feel in control of your boat in any
steering situation.
Be prepared for wind and current while steering
your boat. Steering in wind or water currents is
difficult and requires skill to be able to anticipate
and compensate for these effects.

Steering
Steering a boat is very different from steering an

far more difficult and requires time and practice to
master.
When steering a boat, it is important to
understand the causes and effects of turning.
Since both thrust and steering are at the stern of

Section 7
Rotational thrust of the propeller is an aspect
most propeller-driven boats share and needs to
be compensated for at slow speeds. During
rotational thrust, torque is transmitted to the helm
and may cause your boat to drift either port or
starboard when moving forward at a slow speed.
Rotational thrust usually goes unnoticed at high
speeds. While moving forward at a slow speed,
constant helm corrections are usually necessary
to maintain a straight course.
Twin-engine boats usually compensate for
rotational thrust of the propellers by using one
counterrotating drive with a counterrotating
propeller, and one standard clockwise-rotating
drive and propeller to reduce the effects of
steering torque at all boat speeds.
• Reverse the direction of the engine on the side
you want to turn. If you want to turn starboard,
for example, shift the starboard engine into
REVERSE. The forward speed of the port
engine, along with the reverse rotation of the
starboard engine, will pivot your boat into a
starboard turn.
• Use quick “bursts” of throttle to control your
boat. Keep in mind that once your boat starts to
move, momentum will carry it through.

Twin-Engine Steering
When maneuvering with twin engines at low
speeds, steer using the independent thrust of the
port and starboard drives in conjunction with helm
movements. Steering in this manner can be very
effective, especially when maneuvering in
restricted areas and when docking.
Practice using the throttles to control steering of
your boat. Practice these maneuvers in open
water away from others before attempting them
near docks or other boats.
• Before attempting to make close turns at low
speed, always position the throttles in IDLE.
7-6
A boat does not have brakes. Controlling your
boat to a stop and while stopped are important
skills that must be learned. Reverse thrust is
commonly used to slow and stop a boat. The
continued momentum of a boat will vary
according to the boat design, load and speed.
You must also consider and learn to compensate
for the effects of wind and current. Stopping in
wind or water currents is difficult and requires skill
to be able to anticipate and compensate for these
effects.
• To stop or slow forward motion, always
gradually return the throttle(s) to the slow IDLE
position, pause and shift into NEUTRAL, then
pause and shift into REVERSE. WARNING!
Always gradually return the throttle(s) to the
slow IDLE position. Failure to do so can
cause loss of boat control, personal injury
or death, and engine propulsion system
damage.
• If your boat has been driven for a long period of
time at high speed, allow the engine a two- to
three-minute cool-down period at low idle in
NEUTRAL.
Cruiser
Operating Your Boat
• Turn the ignition key to the OFF position.
NOTICE: Never pull the lanyard from the
engine emergency stop switch for normal
shutdown. Doing so may impair your ability to
restart the engine quickly.
• Avoid collisions; at high speeds your boat will
require more time and distance to stop or slow.
• The proper use of trim tabs and outdrive trim
angle is important when slowing to a stop.
Qualified local boating authorities can provide
proper instruction in slowing and stopping your
boat.
WARNING! When accelerating the boat in the
forward direction, the bow can rise and
restrict visibility.
Shifting
Factors to consider when accelerating a boat
forward and running at the most efficient planing
angle are:
The following information is a basic guideline only
and may not apply to your specific shift control.
See the Engine Operator’s Manual or control
manufacturer’s information for the shift control
operation, adjustment and maintenance.
• Most throttle and shift controls have a neutral
detent locking lever that must be released
before shifting from NEUTRAL.
• Always use a brisk and decisive movement
when shifting into or out of gear.
• Always pause in NEUTRAL before shifting from
FORWARD to REVERSE, or REVERSE to
FORWARD. Most throttle and shift controls
have a detent position for NEUTRAL,
FORWARD and REVERSE engagement
positions. These detent positions are important;
when shifting into and out of gear, always pause
in these positions.
• Never shift into REVERSE while your boat is in
FORWARD gear when traveling at a high
speed.
• Always keep the shift control clean and clear of
obstructions.
Accelerating and Running
Under Way
You must understand your boat’s equipment and
controls in order to drive and control your boat in
a forward direction at all speeds and in all
conditions. Learning to drive and control your
boat can be challenging; take this matter
seriously and spend plenty of time practicing.
Cruiser
The phrase “on plane” is commonly used when
referring to the running angle of a boat in forward
motion. When a boat is “on plane,” its hull is
usually running level or almost level with the
water’s surface, which is considered level. The
level “plane” of the water’s surface is the most
efficient angle to run in. This basically means that
the boat is running on top of the water and not
plowing through it.

condition
Because all boats are different and vary in
design, purpose and load, planing angles and
characteristics will vary among all boats. Become
familiar with your boat’s characteristics and obtain
qualified assistance.
The following guidelines provide a basic
understanding of forward acceleration and
operating on plane while under way:
• Always look in front of and around you before
proceeding. Avoid collisions before
accelerating; be aware and stay clear of people
and obstacles in the water.
• Always advise all passengers on-board of your
intention to accelerate and get under way.
• Stow and fasten all loose gear.
• Make sure the engine emergency stop switch
lanyard is connected to your person.
• If equipped, adjust your boat trim tabs up or to a
neutral position with the hull.
• If equipped, adjust the engine power trim to the
full-in position.
• Shift from NEUTRAL into FORWARD detent
idle position.
7-7
Section 7
• Adjust steering to the direction of travel.
• Using a controlled and constant motion, move
the throttle control forward. WARNING! When
accelerating forward, the bow can rise and
restrict visibility. Never remove your hand
from the helm. The rotational thrust of the
propeller under rapid acceleration can
create high steering torque and rapidly
change the direction of steering, causing
loss of control, personal injury or death.
• As your boat begins to move, the bow will rise
and the boat will tend to plow through the water.
As acceleration increases, your boat will begin
to plane or level out within a few seconds. If it
will not plane to a near-level position, slowly
reduce the throttle back to the FORWARD
detent idle position. Recheck your load and trim
equipment position to determine the cause.
• Once the boat is on plane, the steering torque
will diminish; however, never remove your
hands from the helm while under way. While
running at a planed position, you will notice
greater throttle response and steering control
as you continue to accelerate or achieve the
most comfortable and safe speed for the
conditions. You can achieve better
performance, control and running efficiency
using the engine’s power trim and the boat’s
trim tabs, if equipped.
• Be aware of the wake you create and anticipate
the effect it will have on others. During
acceleration, deceleration and at speeds other
than on plane, a heavy wake is usually created.
You are responsible for your boat’s wake and
any damage or injury it causes.
• Obey no-wake areas and speed-controlled
areas.
• Stay clear of or at a safe distance from other
boats.
• Avoid collisions; at high speeds your boat will
require more time and distance to stop or slow.
7-8
Checks During and After
Operation
• Check gauges frequently for signs of abnormal
conditions.
• Check that controls operate smoothly.
• Check for excessive vibration.
Trim Tabs
Trim tabs adjust the boat’s trim angle and are
primarily used to compensate for uneven weight
distribution, listing, water conditions and other
factors that can hinder efficient planing. Trim tabs
are either power or manually adjusted, and vary
in application, style and shape.
Trim tabs are added to a boat’s hull at the stern to
lift the stern and effectively make the hull longer.
Trim tabs raise and lower to deflect and redirect
water. This change in water flow creates upward
pressure under the tabs, raising the stern and at
the same time lowering the bow. The tabs are
commonly used at the same time. They can,
however, be used independently to adjust for
water conditions, wind and boat weight
distribution.
Trim tabs can sometimes help to keep a boat on
plane at lower speeds and help a boat achieve
plane quicker. The boat operator can adjust trim
tabs by using a switch at the helm area. Trim tab
gauges are available in most applications to
provide a visual gauge-to-trim position. Most
gauges indicate trim position in a range from UP
(out) to DOWN (in).
Trim tabs are primarily used in conjunction with
the engine’s power trim.
General trim tab operation guidelines:
• When getting on plane, adjust the trim tabs to
the best position to allow the boat to plane. A
few trial runs will help you determine what
position works best for your application. In most
applications, this will be full up or parallel with
the hull at a neutral angle. The further down the
trim tab position, the more the stern lift
increases and the bow lift decreases.
Cruiser
Operating Your Boat
• Once on or near plane, use the engine’s power
trim to achieve better control and an efficient
planing position.
• Further adjust (usually UP) the trim tabs to
fine-tune planing efficiency and increase speed.
WARNING! Improper use of trim tabs or
moving them DOWN at high speeds can
cause an accident or injury. See Safety
Precautions at the beginning of this section
for more details.

Power Trim and Tilt
The following information is a basic guideline only
and may not apply to your specific power tilt unit.
See the Engine Operator’s Manual for information
on your power tilt operation, adjustment and
maintenance.
The engine’s power tilt generally operates in
conjunction with the power trim system, which is
commonly called power trim and tilt. This system
allows you to raise and lower the lower drive unit
and propeller to adjust trim (the planing and
running angle of the boat while under way) and tilt
(used to position the lower drive unit up beyond
the power trim range used for trailering, launching
or beaching). Never use power tilt while the
engine is running.
Power Trim Operation
The following information is a basic guideline only
and may not apply to your specific power trim
unit. See the Engine Operator’s Manual for
information on your power trim operation,
adjustment and maintenance.
The engine’s power trim allows you to raise and
lower the lower drive unit and propeller to adjust
the planing and running angle of the boat while
under way.
Boat trim adjustment while under way greatly
affects boat performance and efficiency. During
normal operation while under way at speed, trim
the boat to the best possible position to reduce
the wetted surface of the hull. With less boat in
the water, both speed and fuel economy increase.
Adjust systems with manual trim adjustment for
best overall operation for the load and conditions.
Engines with power trim allow for continuous
adjustment for best results.
You can adjust the power trim by using a switch at
the helm area or on the throttle control. Trim
gauges are available in most applications to
provide a visual gauge-to-trim position. Most
gauges indicate trim position between UP (out,
away from the transom) and DOWN (in, closer to
the transom).

Operating Your Boat
General effects of power trim under way:
Trim in too far (closer to the transom):
•
•
•
•
Speed decreases.
Fuel economy decreases.
Boat may handle and steer poorly.
Boat will have difficulty achieving a proper
running, planing position.
Trim out too far (away from the transom):
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Steering torque increases.
Speed decreases.
Fuel economy decreases.
Boat may handle and steer poorly.
Boat will bounce or porpoise.
Engine RPM increases.
Propeller may ventilate as it nears the surface
of the water and slip excessively as it pulls air
from the surface. This will cause engine RPM to
rapidly rise.
• Boat will have difficulty getting on plane from an
idle position.
WARNING! Do not trim the engine out too far
or you may lose control of your boat. See
Safety Precautions at the beginning of this
section for more details.
• To find the optimum trim position while under
way, run your boat at a stable planed angle with
the least possible amount of the hull in the
water. The boat reaches optimum trim position
when it is not porpoising or plowing excess
water.
High-speed operation on smooth water provides
stability, but you must maintain control by using
quick reactions and adjustments. Know your
limits and stay within them. Keep one hand on the
helm and the other on the throttle controls at all
times.
WARNING! If you lose control of your boat,
pull back on the throttle and trim in at the
same time.
Constant adjustments are necessary for rapidly
changing conditions. Small inputs of throttle and
steering are exaggerated at high speeds.
Depending on the speed, keep watch well ahead
so that you have enough time to react.
If your boat has trim tabs, you can achieve further
boat trim adjustment by using the trim tabs in
conjunction with the engine power trim
equipment.
General power trim operation guidelines:
• When getting on plane from an idle position,
start with the trim full in. As the throttle position
increases, the boat speed will increase and
drive the bow up. As acceleration proceeds, the
bow will start to come down. When the bow
starts to fall and the boat begins to plane, slowly
start to trim out.
• Trimming out while under way generally causes
the boat to rise up and plane. The boat begins
accelerating without adjusting the throttle as
less of the boat is dragging in the water.
Trimming up causes the engine RPM to
increase. It is very important to watch the
engine tachometer to keep it at or near full
throttle operating range and not to exceed the
engine’s wide-open throttle operation range.
See the Engine Operator’s Manual for the
engine’s wide-open throttle operation range.

Practice leaving and approaching the dock to
become familiar with the procedures.
WIND or CURRENT
Helpful guidelines when departing from the
dock:
• Make sure you have sufficient space to
maneuver your boat away from the dock, other
boats and any other obstacles that may hinder
your departure.
• Always allow sufficient clearance to the stern for
the engine to clear any obstructions.
• Be aware of other boat traffic, wind and water
conditions before departing.
• Make sure the engine is started and you have
boat movement under control before casting off
any mooring lines.
• Always proceed slowly when departing from a
dock.
Helpful guidelines when docking:
• Make sure you have sufficient space to
maneuver your boat around the dock, other
boats and any other obstacles that may hinder
your approach.
• Be aware of other boat traffic, wind and water
conditions on your approach.
• Always approach from a direction against the
wind or current.
• When possible, approach slowly from a 45
degree angle and then steer parallel to the
dock.
• Have fenders, mooring lines and assistance
ready. WARNING! Never use your hand, arm
or any other part of your body to attempt to
keep your boat from hitting the dock. The
boat could push against the dock, causing
severe injury.
• If possible, throw a mooring line to a person on
the dock and have that person secure the bow.
With the bow secure, swing the stern in with the
engine or pull it in using a boat hook or the
stern line.
• Tie off the bow and then the stern.

Mooring
Because mooring configurations vary, consult
with other experienced boaters or qualified
boating authorities for recommendations on
properly mooring your boat. Always moor your
boat securely to prevent personal injury or
property damage.
Helpful guidelines when mooring:
• Each mooring line must be of the appropriate
strength, material and type to safely secure
your boat when moored.
• Each mooring line must be longer than the
length of your boat.
• Use bow and stern mooring lines, as well as
spring lines, for additional security.
Cruiser
Operating Your Boat
• Use fenders to protect your boat from damage.
• When possible, tie up with the bow facing into
the wind or current.
• Never attach a mooring line to a point or part of
your boat that is not designed to withstand the
stress and the weight of the boat.
• Only use the bow eye, stern eyes and other
cleats or attachment points that have been
approved for mooring.
• If you plan on mooring your boat for a long
period of time, use chafing protectors on lines
to protect the boat’s finish.
• Leave some slack in the lines to allow for wave
movement or tidal action if applicable.
Anchors and Anchoring
Anchors are available for various applications and
come in many sizes, types and shapes. Boat
weight and size are primary factors in choosing
an anchor. When selecting an anchor, consult
other qualified boaters or local marine authorities.

Helpful guidelines when anchoring:
• Make sure the anchor line is tied to the anchor.
Tie the other end of the line to the forward cleat
or bow eye.
• Head your boat into the wind or current over the
spot where you want to lower the anchor.
• Stop your boat before lowering the anchor.
• Slowly lower the anchor until it hits bottom.
• Allow the boat to back away, keeping tension on
the line.
• Release at least six to seven times as much line
as the depth of the water.
• Secure the anchor line to the bow cleat or eye.
• Firmly pull on the line to make sure the anchor
is holding.
• Occasionally check your position against the
shoreline. If the anchor is dragging and the boat
is drifting, reset the anchor.
Helpful guidelines when weighing (pulling in)
the anchor:
Figure 7-12
Anchor line (rode) is constructed from various
materials and is available in many diameters and
types. Consult with your local marine supply store
for a recommendation on appropriate lines for
your boat anchor and application. For most
applications, anchor line length should be at least
six to seven times longer than the depth of the
water in which you are anchoring. Always have
plenty of additional anchor line on-board.
WARNING! ALWAYS anchor from the bow;
NEVER anchor from the stern. A small amount
of current will make a boat unsteady. A strong
current can pull a boat anchored by the stern
under the water and keep it there.
Cruiser
• Start the engine(s).
• If necessary, move forward until enough tension
is off the anchor line to allow for retrieval of the
anchor. Avoid running over the anchor line;
retrieve the line as you approach the anchor.
• Once the anchor line is straight up and down,
lift the anchor from the bottom.
• If the anchor is stuck, attach the anchor line to
the bow cleat so that it is tight. The
up-and-down motion of the bow from wave
action may loosen the anchor from the bottom.
If the anchor remains stuck, let out a few more
feet of line and attach it to the bow cleat. While
keeping tension on the line, slowly maneuver
your boat around the anchor to help loosen it.
Avoid running over the anchor line.

BOAT FEATURES AND OPTIONS
Before operating any systems within this section,
see Safety on page 2-1.
ENGINE COOLING
SYSTEM
Your boat may be equipped with a variety of
systems to operate your boat and to provide other
conveniences you may need while on the water.
The following basic and typical information may
not apply to your specific application. All of your
boat’s systems may not be covered in this
section. See the Manufacturer’s Operator’s
Manual for specific details.
Some boat engines and transmissions are cooled
by the transfer of heat from the continuous flow of
cool sea/lake (raw) water through the engine or
transmission cooling passages and then back
into the sea/lake. A raw water pickup and screen
on the lower drive unit or hull allows water into the
engine, and a pump then circulates the water to
cool the engine.
Regularly inspect and maintain all components
and systems to prevent unexpected hazards due
to worn or faulty components. Be sure to replace
components and hardware with marine grade
parts. Never use automotive components.
Some boat engines and transmissions are cooled
by heat transfer from the continuous flow of
engine coolant through a self-contained cooling
system. The cooling system has a large heat
exchanger that transfers heat from the engine to
the coolant. Raw water flows through a separate
passage in the heat exchanger to transfer heat
from the self-contained engine coolant to the raw
water and back into the sea/lake.
FUEL SYSTEM
Basic fuel systems consist of one or more fuel
tanks, tank vents, level sensor and gauge, lines,
pumps and valves.
Each tank has an antisiphon valve to prevent fuel
from leaking out of the tank should a break occur
in the system at a point other than the tank. Some
models are also equipped with a fuel shutoff
valve at each tank to stop fuel flow from the tank.
It is recommended that fuel shutoff valves be
closed during long periods of inactivity or storage.
If equipped with multiple tanks, the system also
includes a fuel tank selection valve for individual
tank selection and a fuel manifold. The manifold
is usually located in the engine compartment and
contains a series of fuel feed valves for controlling
fuel flow/shutoff to the engines. The fuel valves
can be used to help maintain even weight
distribution in the fuel tanks for proper boat load
distribution or to shut off contaminated fuel from
the system. Refer to your boat and Engine
Operator's Manual for specific fuel system
information and service information.
Cruiser
Raw water intakes on the hull or any water outlet
below your boat’s waterline usually feature a
seacock that provides a manual shutoff during a
leak. Be sure to periodically inspect the raw water
intake screen and clear it of any debris that could
obstruct water flow into the engine. Keep
seacocks located at the thru-hull fitting closed
during long periods of inactivity; open them only
when needed. NOTICE: Keep seacocks closed
during periods of inactivity. A downstream hose
failure could flood your boat if the seacock is left
open.

Section 8
ELECTRICAL SYSTEM
Figure 8-1
Boats may be equipped with one or two types of
electrical systems: Direct Current (DC) and
Alternating Current (AC).
Most boats use a battery-powered direct current
(DC) system; some boats also use a generator or
shore-powered alternating current (AC) system.
Most systems have a main load panel which
serves as the main distribution panel.
DC System
Figure 8-1
ENGINE EXHAUST
SYSTEM
The engine exhaust system vents engine exhaust
gases away from the boat. Inboard engines have
a muffler and may use water injection as part of
the exhaust system. Some stern drives have an
exhaust diverter valve that, when activated,
routes engine exhaust to thru-transom exhaust
pipes or down through the propeller hub. Use
thru-transom exhaust only when your boat is well
offshore. Never change or modify the standard
manufactured exhaust system. See the Engine
Operator’s Manual for engine exhaust system and
service information.
ENGINE LUBRICATION
SYSTEM
Depending on engine type, your boat may feature
one of several engine lubrication systems. Stern
drive engines, like automotive engines, use a
sump system where the engine oil is contained in
the engine. See the Engine Operator’s Manual for
engine oil recommendations and information.
8-2
Most boats use a 12-volt common negative
ground DC system. DC systems are usually the
primary electric supply for lights, pumps, blowers,
engine starting, etc.
Boats require at least one battery per engine.
Multiple-battery systems consist of a cranking
battery for each engine and additional batteries
that supply auxiliary power to DC electrical
circuits.
Battery switches control battery power
distribution and disconnect the batteries from the
boat’s electrical system. The engine’s charging
system charges batteries connected to the
charging system when the engines are running.
Battery isolators prevent accessory loads and
other batteries from depleting power from
charged batteries. Isolators also allow the
engine’s charging system to isolate the alternator
charging output and distribute the charge among
all batteries according to individual need.
The main DC control panel may feature a
voltmeter, battery test switch, fuses, circuit
breakers and a master breaker switch.
WARNING! Never reset a breaker that has
been automatically tripped without first
identifying and correcting the cause of the
problem. A fire could result. See Safety
Precautions at the beginning of this section

• Place the cable in storage for future use.
WARNING! Some marinas have been known
to “break” shore power ground circuits to
prevent electrolysis. Opening the ground
circuit creates a potentially dangerous
on-board shock hazard. Ensure that your
shore power cable ground circuit is always
continuous. See Safety Precautions at the
beginning of this section for more details.
Generators can be used to supply AC electrical
power to the boat’s electrical system. Generators
typically use the same type of fuel as the
propulsion unit. Follow the generator
manufacturer’s information for operating
instructions. WARNING! Gasoline is extremely
flammable and highly explosive under certain
conditions. See Safety Precautions in the
Safety Section of this manual for more details.
Generators produce carbon monoxide (CO) gas
when operating. Install a CO detector in the cabin
area of your boat and be sure it works properly
when you are using the generator. DANGER!
Carbon Monoxide (CO) is a colorless and
odorless gas that will cause death or serious
injury. See the Safety Precautions in the
Safety Section of this manual for more details.
To reduce CO accumulation:
• Do not operate the generator with the canvas
installed.
• Avoid idling or using the generator while at idle
for extended periods.
• Regularly inspect the generator’s exhaust
system for proper operation.
• Do not use the generator or any fuel-burning
appliances with a transom exhaust port when
anyone is swimming from a stern swim
platform.
Electric current inverters are used to convert DC
to AC or AC to DC depending on the specific
application and requirements. DC-to-AC inverters
allow certain AC appliances, such as
refrigerators, to operate from battery power while
your boat is underway. AC-to-DC inverters use
shore or generator power to create a direct
current supply for DC accessories and battery
charging. Follow the inverter manufacturer’s
information for operating instructions.

Section 8
STEERING SYSTEM
Steering systems vary in type and operation. The
most common steering systems are mechanical,
power-assisted and hydraulically operated.
Boat steering controls are not self-centering.
Always keep a secure grip on the steering wheel
to maintain full boat control.
Single-Lever Controls - Single
or Twin Engine
Single-lever controls operate both the gear shift
and the throttle for one engine with one control
lever. Single-lever controls can be used on singleor twin-engine boats.
Mechanical steering helm controls transfer the
rotary motion of the steering wheel to linear cable
motion, which pushes or pulls the engine’s
steering arm.
Power-assisted mechanical systems use
hydraulic force to assist the manual rotary motion
of the helm’s movement, providing easier steering
for the operator.
Hydraulic systems use hydraulic pressure from a
pump connected to the helm to move hydraulic
fluid through hoses, and then to move hydraulic
cylinders connected to the engine’s steering arm.
A reservoir, either separate or integral to the
pump, holds extra fluid and maintains a pressure
head to prevent air from entering the system.
SHIFT AND THROTTLE
CONTROLS
Knowing how to operate the shift and throttle
controls of your boat is essential for safe and
proper operation.
The following basic and typical information may
not apply to your specific shift control. See the
Engine Operator’s Manual or control
manufacturer’s instructions for information on
your throttle and shift control operation,
adjustment and maintenance.
Figure 8-5
Twin-engine boats with single-lever controls have
two levers: a left lever for port engine control and
a right lever for the starboard engine. Two levers
enable you to operate one engine in FORWARD

Control Operation Guidelines
WARNING! Improperly maintained controls
are hazardous and may cause sudden loss of
control. Make sure all shift/throttle hardware
and cables are regularly inspected and
maintained. Improper maintenance may result
in a loss of control, resulting in serious injury
or death.
• Side mount throttle and shift controls have a
neutral detent locking lever that must be
released before shifting from NEUTRAL.
• Always use a brisk and decisive movement
when shifting into or out of gear.
• Always pause in NEUTRAL before shifting from
FORWARD to REVERSE, or REVERSE to
FORWARD. Most throttle and shift controls
have a detent position for NEUTRAL,
FORWARD and REVERSE engagement
positions. Engine damage may occur if you
rapidly shift into gear without pausing in these
detent positions or allowing the engine RPM to
lower into the approved shifting range.
• When traveling at high speed, never shift into
REVERSE while your boat is in FORWARD
gear.
• Always keep the shift control clean and clear of
obstructions. NOTICE: All shift and throttle
controls are equipped with a safety switch for
start-in-gear prevention. Place the control in the
NEUTRAL position before you attempt to start
the engine.
• Never attempt to shift when the engine is not
running.

PROPELLERS
Figure 8-4
The following basic information may not apply to
all engines. See the Engine Operator’s Manual for
information on propellers for your boat. Consult
your local marina or certified marine technician
for assistance when replacing or servicing
propellers.
The propeller converts the engine’s power into
the thrust needed to propel the boat. Care and
selection of your propeller is very important for
proper boat operation. Propeller size is usually
identified by two numbers, such as 13 x 19, and a
material identification, such as aluminum or
stainless steel. In the number sequence, the first
number is the diameter of the propeller in inches
and the second is the pitch in inches.
Pitch is the angle of the blades expressed in the
theoretical distance a propeller travels in each
revolution. In the previous example, the pitch is
19, which means that each revolution of the
propeller pushes the boat 19 inches (483 mm)
through the water.
Propellers on boats powered by outboard or stern
drive propulsion systems are usually replaced out
of the water to prevent loss of parts and to ensure
correct installation. Although propeller
replacement can be completed with the boat in
the water, it is not recommended. Remove an
inboard-powered boat from the water for propeller
replacement because the propeller is not
accessible while the boat is in the water. Special
tools are required for most applications. Always
consult your local marina or certified marine
technician for assistance when replacing or
servicing propellers.

HELM AND CONTROL
SWITCHES
The following information is intended as basic
and typical and may not apply to your specific
application. Not all switches may be covered in
this section. See the Manufacturer's Operator’s
Manual for specific information on the use and
operation of switches in your boat.
Many of the electrical features and systems in
your boat are equipped with a control switch and
protected with breakers or fuses. Switches are
designed for different applications and found in
many styles and shapes. Some switches may
have a lighted indicator for easy ON/OFF
identification.
Ignition Switch
The ignition switch controls the engine starter
circuit, the engine ignition system and accessory
circuits connected to the ignition switch.
Battery Switch
Battery switches are used to control battery
power distribution and disconnect the batteries
from the boat's electrical system. Battery
switches are designed in many styles and for
different applications. They generally provide
battery isolation when used with multiple
batteries and are used primarily as a method of
quick and positive battery disconnection. Battery
switches also protect against tampering,
electrical fire hazards and battery drain. Keep this
switch off when not using your boat or when
storing it for extended periods of time. NOTICE:
Do not move the battery switch with the engine
running; this could damage the engine's charging
system.

The engine emergency stop switch controls the
engine ignition ON/OFF. This safety device shuts
the engine off immediately and prevents the boat
from becoming a runaway if the operator is
accidentally thrown from the seat or away from
the helm.
The neutral start safety switch provides
start-in-gear prevention. The switch controls
power to the engine starter circuit of the ignition
switch. The engine gear shift control lever must
be in the NEUTRAL position to allow the ignition
switch to activate the engine starter. This safety
device will prevent the boat’s engine from starting
if the engine is in gear.
Whenever your boat’s engine is on, physically
secure one end of the emergency engine stop
switch lanyard to the emergency stop switch and
the other to the boat operator. If the operator is
thrown from the seat or moves too far from the
helm, the lanyard will disconnect from the switch,
activating the switch to turn off the engine.
• Never remove or modify the engine emergency
stop switch and/or lanyard.
• Always keep the lanyard free from obstructions
that could interfere with its operation.
• Always check the switch for proper operation.

lights, and console gauge lights; are activated.
When the switch is in the ANC position, only the
white stern light is activated.
Never operate your boat between sunset and
sunrise using only the stern light. Use all
navigational lights when operating under way
between sunset and sunrise.
Bilge Pump Switch
The bilge pump switch controls power ON/OFF to
the bilge pump to remove excess water from the
bilge area of the boat. All models are equipped
with an automatic bilge pump, which will allow
water to be automatically pumped out when it
reaches a level that activates the float switch in
the bilge area.
Running the pump when the bilge is dry will
damage the pump. Do not allow the bilge pump to
operate after all the water has been cleared from
the bilge area; damage to the pump will occur if
the pump is allowed to operate without water.
LANYARD
If oil is spilled in the bilge, do not run the pump.

AUTOMATIC FIRE
EXTINGUISHING
SYSTEM
Automatic fire extinguishing systems are
self-contained systems that are designed to
automatically activate to help extinguish fires.
These systems include the extinguishing
material, lines, nozzles, valves, sensors, controls
and indicators.
In the event of an extinguisher discharge,
immediately shut down all electrical and
mechanical systems and powered ventilation.
Automatic fire extinguishing systems are added
protection to your safety and your boat’s fire
protection, but do not eliminate the need for hand
held U.S. Coast Guard approved fire
extinguishers. See the Automatic Fire
Extinguishing Systems Operator’s Manual for
specific operation and service information.
WARNING! If the fire system discharges, wait
for at least 15 minutes before opening engine
hatch. Fire system gas displaces oxygen to
“smother” the fire. Opening the hatch too
soon may feed oxygen to the fire and
flashback can occur.
BILGE PUMP SYSTEM
The Federal Water Pollution Control Act prohibits
the discharge of oil or oily waste into the water.
Violators can be fined $5,000.
Water will enter a boat for a number of reasons,
including heavy seas, strong storms and long
periods of rain. The bilge area is usually the
deepest part of the hull and where the water
settles. The bilge pump moves water from the
bilge area through hoses and empties it through
an opening in the hull.
The bilge pump can be operated manually by a
switch. All models feature an automatic bilge
pump, which will allow water to be automatically
pumped out when it reaches a level that activates
the float switch in the bilge area. NOTICE: DO
NOT allow the bilge pump to operate after all the
water has been cleared from the bilge area;
damage to the pump will occur if you operate it
without water.
Cruiser
BOAT VENTILATION
SYSTEM
Boat ventilation systems allow the circulation of
fresh air through compartments and enclosed
areas of boats. The most common types of
ventilation devices are manual or power-actuated
vents, hatches, ports and windows that open and
close. Ventilation ports are always located in
head and galley compartments and are
commonly found in cabins and sleeping areas.
Ventilation or blower systems are designed to
remove explosive vapors that accumulate in the
bilge area and engine compartment. Proper
ventilation is extremely important to personal
safety while boating.
Powered ventilation systems consist of one or
more sealed fans that replace vapors with fresh
air through intake and exhaust vents. Always
operate the blower for at least four minutes before
you start the engine. Operate the blower
continuously when at idle and during slow-speed
operation.
Natural ventilation systems also have intake and
exhaust vents; as the boat moves, air is forced
into the intake vent and escapes through the
exhaust vents.
FRESHWATER SYSTEM
A freshwater system provides potable (drinkable)
water to sinks, showers, water heaters, ice
makers and/or cockpit washdowns. Common
freshwater systems are either manual or
pressurized. Pressurized systems may include a
storage tank, electric pump, faucet, filter, city
water hookup connector, water heater, and
showers, sinks or other appliances that require
potable water. Regardless of the type of system,
all freshwater drainage (gray water) is directed
overboard and is usually untreated.
If you have a gray water option, all waste water is
directed to the blackwater/waste holding tank.

Filter and Pump
Freshwater Tank
Water flows from the tank through a filter to strain
out any contaminants, and then flows to the
pump. The pump provides a flow of water at a
preset system pressure. Some pumps include a
safety feature that will shut the pump off if it runs
dry or when the tank is emptied.
Freshwater tanks are usually filled through a deck
plate filler marked “WATER.” A hull vent allows air
to enter and escape the tank as the water level
rises and falls. The tank is full when water comes
out of the vent.
Operation Guidelines:
•
•
•
•
Fill the freshwater tank with potable water.
Close all faucets and drains.
Turn on the freshwater pump circuit breaker.
Open each cold and hot water faucet to allow
air to escape. Close the faucets when a steady
flow of clean water is apparent.
• After all lines are empty, the pump will build to
operating pressure and shut off.
• Refill the freshwater tank with potable water.
Fill the tank with only potable (drinking) water.
The tank will continue to provide clean drinking
water if you use and refill it often.
Guidelines when filling the tank:
• Remove the “WATER” filler cap with the key
provided with your boat. Turn counterclockwise
to remove the cap.
• Always use a sanitary drinking water hose
(blue) when filling the tank with fresh drinking
water.
• Replace the cap and fasten securely with the

City Water Hookup
Shower Sump
When docked, you can connect your boat’s
freshwater system to a city water system or shore
pressurized system as an alternative to the
on-board freshwater tank system.
Waste water from the shower drains and/or air
conditioning condensation drain(s) is collected in
the shower sump tank. When the waste water in
the tank reaches a predetermined level, a float
switch turns on the sump pump, which discharges
the waste water overboard. Clean the sump tank
periodically to prevent buildup of debris that can
lead to foul odors or slow drains.
Pressurized shore systems bypass the boat’s
freshwater tank and pump system, and connect
directly into appliance lines. A pressure regulator
limits the maximum pressure supplied to the
system. NOTICE: Always monitor your boat’s
water system during initial usage of the city water
feature. In this mode, your boat is connected to
an unlimited source of water. DO NOT leave your
boat unattended while using city water. Any major
leak or break in the system could cause sinking
or swamping of your boat.
Using the city water hookup does not replenish
water supply in the tank. You can only fill the tank
at the freshwater fill plate. Before connecting to
any water fitting (dockside or otherwise), be sure
the water is potable and suitable for human
consumption. Also, a special sanitary drinking
water hose is required for the potable water
connection. Never use a common garden hose
for drinking water.
Certain inland waters maintain a no-discharge
regulation for gray water. Because of this, your
boat may be equipped with the Gray Water
option, in which gray water (from sinks and
shower drains) is drained into the waste holding
tank of the boat. Monitor your waste holding tank
level indicator regularly to know when the waste
holding tank should be pumped out.
CAUTION! Do not flush into a full holding
tank. Attempting to flush the head when the
tank is full could result in damage to the
waste system.
Guidelines when connecting to city water:
• Turn off the freshwater pump breaker.
• Remove the threaded plug from the female
swivel hose connector of the city water inlet
fitting. Clean the strainer.
• Only connect a sanitary drinking water hose to
the water inlet fitting.
• Be sure to clean both ends and flush the hose
before connecting. Foreign matter may damage
the pressure regulator.
• Before connecting to the dockside city water
outlet, open the valve fully to flush any rust
particles that may be present.
• Connect the hose to the dockside city water
outlet.

Water Heater
RAW WATER SYSTEM
Most water heaters are electrically heated and
are equipped with a high-pressure relief valve
and thermostat for safety.
Raw water is seawater (non-drinking water).
Some boats use raw water systems for engine
cooling or head.
If your boat is equipped with a water heater, it will
come standard with a heat exchanger that will
use engine heat to heat the water.
Raw water systems include:
Guidelines when operating the water heater:
• Fill the freshwater system or connect to city
water and bleed air from all lines.
• Turn on the water heater circuit breaker.
NOTICE: DO NOT turn on the water heater
circuit breaker switch unless the freshwater
system is charged and the water heater is filled.
Damage to the heating element will result if it
heats up with no water in the system. Some
water heaters are equipped with a
high-temperature limit switch to protect the
heating elements if the heater is activated with
no water in the tank. If the system does not
operate for any reason, turn off the water heater
breaker and push the reset button on the
heater.

• An individual thru-hull raw water intake.
• A seacock and strainer. The seacock protects
your boat from sinking if a downstream hose or
fitting would fail. Always close any seacock not
in use.
• A pump to draw water into the system. Engines
may have belt- or pulley-driven pumps; heads
may have manual push/pull or electric pumps.
Guidelines when operating a raw water system:
• Open the desired seacock.
• Turn on appropriate pump switch as required.

HEAD AND WASTE
CONTAINMENT
SYSTEM
Always check state and local regulations before
discharging waste overboard.
Head (marine toilet) and waste containment
systems are available as manual or
electrically-operated systems. Electrically
operated systems use electric raw water pumps
to flush waste from the marine toilet into the
boat’s waste tank. A waste tank indicator may be
installed to provide a visual indication of the
amount of waste in the tank.
All boats with heads are required to have a
USCG-approved operable marine sanitation
device installed. These devices, commonly called
macerators or chlorinators, are used to break up
solid and chemically treated waste and discharge
it into waste tanks or overboard.
Waste Removal System Types
• Dockside Discharge – Waste tanks are emptied
through a deck plate fitting marked “WASTE” by
special waste removal equipment on the shore.
• Overboard Discharge – If your boat is equipped
with an optional macerator, waste tanks can be
emptied through the hull into the sea. A “Y”
valve is used to change discharge flow between
the macerator and the dockside pump-out
fitting.
Components of waste systems are constructed of
materials specially formulated to prevent odor
permeation and resist chemical actions.
Regularly add approved waste treatment
chemicals to your tank by flushing them through
the head. The chemicals help to control odor and
break down the waste. Follow chemical
manufacturer’s instructions before use.

Marine Head Operation
See the marine head manufacturer’s information
for specific information. NOTICE: DO NOT flush
the head when the holding tank is full. Attempting
to flush the head when the waste tank is full could
result in damage to the waste system.
VacuFlush Operation:
Your boat may be equipped with the optional
VacuFlush marine head system. This system
uses a small amount of water and vacuum power,
generated by vacuum pump, to flush. The water
supply is attached to the pressurized water
system of the boat. The contents of the bowl are
flushed into a holding tank where they will remain
until pumped out by waste pump-out facility or
discharched overboard with an optional
macerator. The vacuum generator is mounted on
the waste holding tank. When the head is flushed,
a sensor automatically engages the vacuum
pump to recharge the system. It is normal for the
vacuum pressure to reduce slightly between
flushes. Refer to the toilet manufacturer’s owner’s
manual for more information.

TRAILERING AND LAUNCHING
Before using your trailer, see Safety on page 2-1.
TRAILER TYPE
LEGAL
CONSIDERATIONS
Trailers are designed for many applications and
can vary in style. To prevent damage to your boat
and/or personal injury, always use the
appropriate trailer for your boat. Contact your
dealer for more information.
The following information is intended as a basic
guideline only. See the Trailer Operator’s Manual
for information on operation, adjustments and
maintenance.
Before you use your trailer, contact your state’s
Department of Motor Vehicles (and that of other
states through which you may be traveling) for
information on trailering regulations. Trailer
regulations vary widely from state to state, and it
is your responsibility to be in compliance with all
regulations when trailering your boat.
Regulations include, but are not limited to, trailer
registration, licensing, width, height, length, lights,
safety chains, tie-downs, hitch type, weight
capacity, brakes, spare wheels, vehicle mirrors
and gross vehicle weight.
TRAILER
CLASSIFICATION
Trailers are separated into four classes based on
the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR):
Trailer Class
GVWR
Class One
under 2000 lb (907 kg)
Class Two
over 2000 lb (907 kg) and under
3500 lb (1588 kg)
Class Three
over 3500 lb (1588 kg) and under
5000 lb (2268 kg)
Class Four
over 5000 lb (2268 kg)
Cruiser
TRAILER GROSS
VEHICLE WEIGHT
RATING
All trailers must display a Gross Vehicle Weight
Rating (GVWR) decal, which shows the
load-carrying capacity plus the weight of the
trailer. The total weight of your boat (fully loaded
with fuel, batteries, water, etc.), engine, gear and
trailer must never exceed the GVWR.
TOWING VEHICLE
The towing vehicle must be able to safely pull the
full trailer and boat load. Never pull a trailer load
that exceeds the vehicle’s towing capacity; you
risk losing control of the trailer and/or vehicle.
Before trailering, always check your Vehicle
Operator’s Manual for maximum towing/trailering
load specifications and maximum gross vehicle
weight specifications that include the fully loaded
trailer.
9-1
Section 9
VEHICLE TOWING
HITCH
The towing vehicle must be able to safely pull the
full trailer and boat load. The vehicle must have a
towing hitch that is capable of safely handling the
trailering load and tongue weight of the trailer.
Hitches are divided into classes that specify the
trailer’s gross trailer weight and maximum tongue
weight for each class. WARNING! Never use a
hitch that is not rated to pull the maximum
weight of your trailering load or that is not
rated for the maximum tongue weight that
your trailering load applies.
Hitches are designed for many applications and
can vary in style. Use professional assistance
when selecting the correct hitch and hitch ball for
your towing application. WARNING! A vehicle
hitch that is underrated or improperly
installed can lead to loss of control of the
trailer and/or vehicle, causing serious
personal injury or even death.

HITCH BALL AND
TRAILER COUPLER
Most boat trailers have a coupler that connects to
a hitch ball attached to the towing vehicle’s hitch.
The trailer hitch coupler must always match the
size of the hitch ball. The correct hitch ball
diameter for the coupler is usually marked on the
trailer coupler. WARNING! Never use a hitch
ball size or rating that does not match the
trailer coupler specifications.
Trailer hitch balls are sized and rated for use
based on the trailer GVWR:

SAFETY CHAINS
Your boat trailer’s safety chains prevent the trailer
from completely detaching from the towing
vehicle when under way. Connect the chains to
the vehicle’s hitch or frame and crisscross the
chains under the trailer tongue to prevent the
tongue from dropping to the road if the trailer
separates from the hitch ball. Rig the chains as
tight as possible with enough slack to permit
full-free turning. Safety chains must be rated at
the same or greater weight capacity as the
trailer’s GVWR.
Never allow the chains to drag on the ground
when trailering.
Attach the chains properly and securely between
the towing vehicle and trailer before trailering.

5-Pin Wiring Connector
Some trailers equipped with surge brakes may
utilize a 5-pin wiring connector. These trailers use
an electric solenoid valve that allows brake fluid
to bypass back to the reservoir while in
REVERSE. The solenoid is usually connected to
the reverse lights on the tow vehicle to ensure the
brakes only bypass in REVERSE. The fifth pin is
for deactivating the brakes when backing up, and
is required to be connected to the vehicle’s power
when backing up. In some instances, the 5-pin
connector can be connected to a 4-pin connector
for normal operation of the lights.
TRAILERING
GUIDELINES
Follow these guidelines when trailering:
• Maintain a safe speed as regulated by the
trailering laws of the state where you are
traveling.
• Check the trailer and vehicle brakes for proper
operation and fluid level prior to departure.
• Check the trailer for damage prior to departure.
• Once the trailer is secured to the vehicle hitch,
stow the trailer jack or lift so that it will not hit the
ground.
• Check the trailer and vehicle tires for proper
inflation. Under-inflated tires heat up rapidly
and may cause tire damage or failure.
• Check trailer wheel bearings and lug nuts
before each trip.
9-4
KC-0047-A
Figure 9-5
• If travel conditions require, use an additional
tie-down strap across the rear of your boat from
side to side to further secure the stern.
• Check all strapping material for wear.
• Make sure trailer and vehicle running, brake
and signal lights are in good working condition.
• Drive with the vehicle and trailer running lights
on.
• Too much or too little tongue weight makes
steering difficult and causes the tow vehicle to
sway. Put approximately 5% to 10% of boat and
trailer weight on the tongue.
• Side curtains, backdrop, aft curtains,
convertible tops and detachable windshields
are not designed to stay on boats at highway
speeds. Before towing, take down the
convertible top, side curtains, back cover and
detachable windshield, if equipped.
• Remove any covers that are not designed to
stay on boats at highway speeds.
• Carry a spare tire and wheel for both your trailer
and your towing vehicle, along with tools to
change them.
• See the Engine Operator’s Manual for
engine-related trailering information.
Continuous road shocks may fatigue your boat’s
steering system.
• On extended trips, carry spare wheel bearings,
seals and races.
Cruiser
Trailering and Launching
• While traveling, check the wheel hubs every
time you stop. If the hub feels abnormally hot,
inspect the bearing before continuing your trip.
• Carry a fire extinguisher in the vehicle.
• Turn carefully while towing a trailer; additional
space and distance are needed.
KC-0046-A

• Drive slowly over railroad tracks or rough roads.
• If you trailer your boat from lake to lake, you
may unknowingly introduce a foreign aquatic
species from one lake to the next. Thoroughly
clean your boat below the waterline, remove all
weeds and algae, and drain the bilge and
livewells before launching it in a new body of
water.
• Make sure the hitch ball and trailer coupler are
the same size and bolts and nuts are tightly
secured.
• The coupler must be completely over the ball,
and the latching mechanism must be locked
down.
• The safety chains must be attached
crisscrossing under the coupler to the frame of
the tow vehicle. If the ball was to break, the
trailer would follow in a straight line and prevent
the coupler from dragging on the road. Make
sure the trailer emergency brake cable or chain
is also installed to the tow vehicle frame.
Cruiser
• Make sure the lights on the trailer function
properly.
• Make sure the tow vehicle has side view mirrors
that are large enough to provide an
unobstructed rear view on both sides of the
vehicle.
Note: Make sure your towing vehicle and trailer
are in compliance with all state and local laws.
Contact your state motor vehicle bureau for laws
governing the towing of trailers.
Backing Up
If you have never towed a trailer before, take time
to practice and become comfortable with backing
up your boat and trailer. Situations can arise in
traffic, or when launching, that will require you to
be able to back up your trailer safely.
Follow these guidelines when backing a trailer:
• Back slowly and make small steering
adjustments.
• Turn the car wheels in the direction opposite
where you want the trailer to go.
• After the trailer begins moving, turn the car to
follow it.
• Have a second person assist you with audible
and hand signals.

Circuit Breakers and Fuses
Never exceed the recommended fuse sizes or
bypass a fuse in a circuit. Always install the
proper (type and rating) fuses whenever replacing
or changing fuses. Continuous fuse/breaker
failures indicate a severe problem and require
immediate attention. WARNING! Installing an
incorrect fuse or breaker can cause a fire.
Some applications use circuit breaker switches to
provide individual circuit protection with the ability
to manually reset the breaker switch.

Aluminum Hardware
Periodically wash aluminum hardware with soap
and water to keep it clean. If your boat is used in
salt water or polluted water, wash aluminum
hardware with soap and water after each use.
Salt water allowed to remain on aluminum will
penetrate the metal and corrode the aluminum.
It is recommended to frequently clean and coat all
aluminum hardware with a metal protectant made
for aluminum to protect against pitting and
corrosion caused by the harsh effects of salt
water. Choose an appropriate cleaner specific to
your needs, as special cleaners are available for
different types of aluminum hardware such as
anodized, powder coated and polished.
Most stains can be removed from aluminum with
a metal polish or fine polishing compound. To
minimize corrosion, use a caulking compound or
Teflon-based sealer to isolate hardware and
fasteners mounted to aluminum fabrications. With
proper care, aluminum hardware can provide
many years of service.
Galvanic Corrosion
Galvanic corrosion (electrolysis) is the
deterioration of metals from the effects of
electrolytic action. When two dissimilar metals
are immersed in a conductive fluid such as salt
10-6
water, an electric current is produced, much like a
battery. As current flows between the two metals,
the softer, or sacrificial, metal deteriorates.
If you operate in salt, polluted or brackish waters,
your boat should be equipped with a
transom-mounted sacrificial anode to prevent
corrosion damage to other metal parts of your
boat that are in contact with the water. The
anodes are self-sacrificing and are slowly eroded
by electrolytic action. These anodes are
important and require periodic inspection for
deterioration. Replace the anode when less than
50% of its original size.
Most engines are equipped with one or more
anodes that require periodic inspection. See the
Engine Operator’s Manual for maintenance
procedures.
Electronic cathode systems are designed to
reduce the effects of electrolysis. Electronic
cathode systems emit an electrical low-current
charge into the water near the metal components’
neutralizing electrolytic action. NOTICE: Do not
paint or coat sacrificial anodes or cathodes with
any substance. Once covered, they do not
provide protection from galvanic corrosion.
Replace anodes if they have deteriorated 50% or
more.
Cruiser
General Care and Maintenance
Saltwater Corrosion
Rinse your boat hull and deck with fresh water
and wash immediately after using your boat in
salt water. If your boat is used primarily in salt
water, wax the hull monthly and apply corrosion
inhibitor to all hardware. See the Engine
Operator’s Manual for the flushing procedure.
Flushing the freshwater engine cooling system is
recommended when the engine has been used in
salt, polluted or brackish waters. Flush the entire
engine cooling system with fresh water for at
least 5 minutes after use in these waters. Consult
your local marine dealer for suitable flushing
equipment.
GENERAL
MAINTENANCE AND
CLEANING
Marine Growth
If accelerated marine growth is a problem in your
area, an antifouling bottom paint may be
necessary to slow growth and prevent gelcoat
damage. Before selecting a bottom paint, talk
with other boaters and your local marine dealer to
determine which product works best in your area.
Many local variables can affect the selection of
paint. Be sure to follow the paint manufacturer’s
directions exactly.
Cleaning
Never allow any type of cleaning solution or
cleaning material to come in contact with the
water or be discharged into the water. The
discharge of any type of debris or waste,
including, but not limited to, food, trash, garbage,
oil, fuel, liquids and human waste, is highly
restricted, if not unlawful, in most waterways.
Never discharge anything into the water.
Periodic cleaning is the best way to keep your
boat looking new. Regular washing and waxing
keep dirt, algae and water deposits from building
up and deteriorating the finish. Keeping your boat
in “show room” condition means greater personal
Cruiser
satisfaction and higher resale value. Special
cleaning products are available from your local
marine dealer.
Hull
When washing your boat, use a mild detergent
with a warm water solution. Never use abrasive
cleaners, solvents, ammonia or chlorine to clean
gelcoat surfaces, as these will damage the
gelcoat surface. Special cleaners are available
from your local marine dealer to remove marine
growth and algae from the hull.
Wax gelcoat surfaces at least twice a season.
Special marine gelcoat waxes are available from
your local marine dealer to prevent color fade and
dirt adhesion. If the gelcoat has oxidized,
chalked, dulled or faded from lack of proper
maintenance, buffing may be necessary to bring
back the shiny appearance. Hand buffing with #7
rubbing compound or power buffing with glazing
compound #1 will quickly restore the surface;
however, always seek certified assistance before
attempting to restore your boat’s finish.
Osmotic Blisters
Blistering is caused by water-soluble materials in
the hull laminate. Since the fiberglass and resin
structure of your craft is porous, the effect of
osmotic pressure allows water to impregnate
below the gelcoat and substrate, thus forming a
blister (intrusion of water into the gelcoat will take
some time). Fiberglass blisters can form in
near-surface layers of the gelcoat to very deep
into the fiberglass structure. The damage can
range from cosmetic to catastrophic, although
catastrophic damage is very rare. University
studies funded by the United States Coast Guard
regarding the cause and effects of osmotic
blisters pointed toward long-term immersion of
the hull in warm water as a primary cause of hull
blisters. Stress cracks on the hulls below the
waterline also contributed to the formation of hull
blisters.
Epoxy coatings applied to the hull, followed by
hull painting, can help prevent the formation of
hull blisters. An alkyd-urethane-silicone marine
paint can also be used to aid in the prevention of
10-7
Section 10
hull blisters. NOTICE: Improper surface
preparation for application of a marine barrier
coating or bottom paint can void your warranty.
See your Monterey dealer for more information. If
the boat is to be moored in water for periods of
more than sixty days in any ninety-day period, a
marine barrier coating must be properly applied
to the hull bottom.
Reducing the amount of time that your boat stays
in the water also helps prevent hull blisters from
forming. Use of a trailer or boat lift will reduce the
likelihood of hull blisters forming. Be sure to use a
bunk-type lift or trailer for long-term storage of the
boat out of water. If blisters are present in the hull,
they need to be properly cleaned and dried out
before any barrier protection can be applied.
Contact your Monterey dealer for more
information on prevention and treatment of hull
blisters.
Upholstery
Cockpit Vinyl Upholstery with PreFixx®
Coating
Beginning with the 2008 model year, Monterey
Boats uses OMNOVA white, smoother and
embossed pleated vinyl material with PreFixx top
coating. All other accent embossed white and
colored vinyl requires different care and
maintenance.
PreFixx Cleaning Instructions
PreFixx is engineered so that upholstery can be
cleaned again and again without showing signs of
wear. With easy cleanability and proven stain and
abrasion resistance, PreFixx protective finish can
reduce maintenance costs and frequent
reupholstery.
Durability. Creates a barrier that resists stains
from penetrating to the surface of the vinyl for
proven, long-lasting protection. With
laboratory-tested stain resistance and improved
wear properties, BoltaSoft® upholstery treated
with PreFixx protective finish can retain a
“like-new” appearance longer.
Easy Maintenance. Enables most common
stains like dirt and smudges to wipe off easily.
Many difficult stains like ballpoint ink also can be
10-8
cleaned with active solvents, such as nail polish
remover, without damaging the PreFixx
protective finish (when recommended cleaning
instructions are followed).
Normal Care and Cleaning
Remove ordinary dirt and smudges with a mild
soap and water solution and a clean, soft cloth or
towel. Dry with a soft, lint-free cloth or towel.
CAUTION! The use of vinyl “conditioners” or
“protectants” is not recommended and
should be avoided on vinyl upholstery treated
with PreFixx protective finish.
Special Cleaning Problems
Although BoltaSoft upholstery treated with
PreFixx protective finish is resistant to most
common stains, the dyes and pigments in some
staining agents have the ability to create a
permanent stain if not treated properly. To clean
difficult stains from upholstery treated with
PreFixx protective finish, locate the staining
agent in the lists below and follow its
recommended cleaning method. For best results,
treat all stains immediately.
Cleaning Tip: To determine the method and type
of cleaners, the source of the stain should be
identified.
Staining Agents: Baby oil, ketchup, chocolate,
motor oil, olive oil, grape juice, urine, blood, hair
oil tonic, tea, coffee and betadine. Use Method 1.
Staining Agents: Eye shadow, crayon and
grease. Use Method 1. If stains remain, use
Method 2.
Staining Agents: Tobacco tar (nicotine),
permanent felt tip marker, yellow mustard,
lipstick, ballpoint pen and spray paint. Use
Method 1. If stains remain, use Method 2. For
stubborn stains still remaining, use Method 3.
The recommended cleaners used in Cleaning
Methods 1, 2 and 3 are progressively more
aggressive.Often, it is better to begin with the
least aggressive cleaner and move to the next
strongest only if the stain remains. NEVER
EXCEED a staining agent’s recommended
cleaner or cleaning method, however.
Cruiser
General Care and Maintenance
Method 1: Use one of the following cleaners with
a soft cloth or damp sponge. Rinse area with
fresh water, and then dry with a clean, lint-free
cloth.
• Formula 409® All-Purpose Spray Cleaner
• Fantastik® Spray Cleaner
Method 2: Use a solvent-type cleaner, such as
rubbing alcohol (isopropyl alcohol). Rinse
cleaned area with fresh water, and then dry with a
clean, lint-free cloth.
Method 3: Use a strong, active solvent cleaner
diluted in water (70% water/30% solvent cleaner),
such as nail polish remover (acetone/water).
Clean with a soft cloth or damp sponge. Stain
should be removed with less than six (6) rubs. If
the stain persists after six rubs, the stain has set
and probably cannot be removed. Rinse cleaned
area with fresh water, and then dry with a clean,
lint-free cloth.
For tough stains on vinyl such as adhesive and
rust, use a citrus cleaner followed by a mild
detergent and warm water. For ink stains, apply
denatured alcohol and wipe off. Note that some
products such as suntan lotion, shoe polish and
wet leaves may stain permanently.
Although not always convenient, minimizing your
boat’s contact with damaging ultraviolet (UV) rays
and storing removable seats and canopies
indoors when not in use will increase the
longevity of vinyl upholstery. NOTICE: Certain
automotive, household and industrial cleaners
can cause further damage and discoloration. Be
cautious when using solvents and dry-cleaning
fluids, or products that contain dyes such as
waxes. Whenever cleaning stubborn stains, test
the treatment in an unseen area first. Use the
following stain treatments with discretion.
Between steps, be sure to rinse thoroughly with
plenty of clean water and allow to dry.
CAUTION! Some solvents are highly
flammable. Exercise proper care in cleaning
and notify personnel in area of danger. Wear
rubber gloves during all cleaning activities.
Use caution in cleaning around buttons,
stitching and wooden or decorative trim,
since these solvents could seriously damage
such areas.

Interior Fabric
Clean interior fabrics with cleaner approved for
use with your boat’s fabrics. Using inappropriate
cleaners can permanently damage fabrics.
Always follow the cleaner’s manufacturer’s
instructions carefully. Always test cleaners in an
unseen area first. WARNING! TOXIC FUMES Dry cleaners require adequate ventilation
during use. Open all hatches and windows
before application.
Soft cleansers or soap and water will remove
most marks or stains on wallpaper. Lightly rub the
mark or stain with a sponge or soft cloth and dry
with a clean cloth.
Canvas Covers and Bimini
Tops
In most cases, boat canvas receives more abuse
than any other item on a boat. Canvas must be
regularly maintained for long life and top
performance. Moisture, dirt and chemicals from
industrial fallout, heat, ultraviolet rays and salt
water can all contribute to the deterioration of
canvas. These elements can cause serious
damage if left unchecked. The following
guidelines will help you keep your canvas in good
condition for years to come:
• Convertible tops are not designed for extended
exposure to the elements as a protective cover
at dockside or when your boat is in storage. Use
a full, properly fitted, light-colored mooring
cover for these purposes.
• If canvas gets wet during use, remove any side
curtains and open the windshield to allow both
sides and all seams to dry. The air circulation
will allow all canvas to dry and prevent the
growth of mildew. Never store wet or damp
canvas.
• Occasionally set up all canvas and curtains,
and hose down with fresh water to remove
accumulated soot and dirt. Sweep or brush the
underside of the canvas to prevent the
accumulation of dirt and mildew.
• Wet canvas must be allowed to dry thoroughly
before storage. Never allow canvas to dry loose
since shrinkage can occur. Install and stretch all
canvas fully on your boat when drying.
10-10
• Never allow the canvas to be exposed to direct
sunlight for long periods of time.
• Use care when handling clear vinyl curtains and
windows to prevent scratching. Never use
cleaners on clear vinyl curtains and windows.
Use clean water and a soft, clean cloth.
• Never fold canvas where creases can form in
the material. Loosely roll canvas to prevent
damage.
• Never store canvas in plastic bags. Store
canvas in a dry, well-ventilated compartment.
• Outer canvas surfaces can be cleaned with a
soft scrub brush and either automotive
convertible top cleaners or household cleaners
suitable for use on vinyl surfaces. The
underside of the canvas may be periodically
sprayed with a spray disinfectant to prevent
mildew.
• Never store or dock your boat under trees. Tree
sap is very corrosive to canvas and can also be
harmful to gelcoat and vinyl interiors.
• Adjust canvas top bows to eliminate pockets in
which rainwater can accumulate. The weight of
accumulated water can collapse or damage the
canvas top.
• Lubricate snaps and zippers regularly. Vaseline,
silicone spray or paraffin are effective
lubricants. Never force snaps and zippers that
are stuck.
• Never trailer your boat with the convertible top
in the mounted position. Dismantle, roll and
securely store all canvas while trailering your
boat to prevent wind damage.

NOTICE: Most stains should be removed easily
from olefin fibers. If the stain persists, the
cleaning procedure should be repeated to ensure
stain removal. Remember, the sooner the stain
removal process begins, the easier the stain will
be to remove. Under no circumstances should
any solvents normally associated with the dry
cleaning of apparel (perchlorethylene, carbon
tetrachloride, etc.) be utilized, as permanent
damage to the fiber will result.
Windshield
A clean windshield is important. If your boat is
equipped with a glass windshield, applying a
nonabrasive glass cleaner with a soft cloth will
remove most dirt. Clean tinted Plexiglas or plastic
windshields with a mild soap solution and damp
cloth only. Harsh detergents, solvents, chemicals
or dry cloths used on any glass or plastic
windshield will scratch the surface.
Window Channels
Nylon pile is typically used in sliding window
channels. Never use any products that contain
bleaching solutions to clean window channels or
seals. Use only a mild detergent and water
solution for cleaning. If windows stick, spray the
channels with silicone spray while working the
window back and forth.
Cruiser
Teak
Teak does not normally require refinishing, but
should be cleaned occasionally with a teak
cleaner available at a local marine dealer. The
best way to keep teak in top condition is to oil it
regularly with teak oil. Follow the manufacturer’s
instructions and warnings carefully as some
cleaners or oils may damage gelcoat, vinyl or
aluminum. Avoid using steel wool pads when
cleaning; only Scotch-Brite™ or similar
nonmetallic pads are recommended. NOTICE:
Teak oils and sealers can be harmful to other
materials. Always thoroughly remove any teak oil
that comes in contact with vinyl, gelcoats, etc.
Never varnish teak; the natural oils in the wood
will cause poor adhesion.
If a scratch develops, it can be repaired easily
using fine-grade sandpaper (400 to 1000 grit).
Use a tack cloth to clean sanding residue, and
then apply a small amount of lemon oil. Let dry
and wipe with a soft cloth.
Bilge
A boat’s bilge area accumulates oil and greasy
dirt over a period of time and should be cleaned
periodically. Consult your local marine dealer for
recommendations on special bilge cleaning
products and procedures.

• Use a non-abrasive cleaner for the bowl.
• A light coating of a general-purpose marine
lubricant on the pump rods and slides will
reduce friction of moving parts.
• Use recommended deodorant and lubricant for
the internal parts of the head.
• Always flush the head completely to clear any
waste from the bowl and/or lines to the waste
tank. This can prevent odor and waste buildup
in the lines. To reduce odors, pour and keep
some fresh water in the bowl after flushing.
Waste Holding Tank
If your boat has an optional waste holding tank
installed, various chemicals are available to
control odors and help break down solids.
Consult your local marine dealer for product
suggestions. After the holding tank is emptied, fill
the tank with fresh water and pump it out again to
rinse. NOTICE: The discharge of any type of
debris or waste, including, but not limited to, food,
trash, garbage, oil, fuel, liquids and human waste,
is highly restricted, if not unlawful, in most
waterways. Never discharge anything into the
water.
SAFETY EQUIPMENT
Periodically check the safety equipment for
damage, general condition and operation when
applicable. Always replace safety equipment that
is in question or in need of repair:

WINTERIZATION AND STORAGE
Your boat may be equipped with a variety of
specialized systems and components. The
following basic and typical information may not
apply to your specific application. This section
may not cover all systems or components on your
boat. Consult your local marina or certified
marine technician for assistance.
Winterizing or storing your boat for extended
periods of non-use requires special preparation to
prevent boat and system damage. Without proper
preparation, if your boat is not used or is stored
for extended periods of time, internal parts of the
engine may become corroded from lack of
lubrication. If your boat is stored in freezing
temperatures, water inside the bilge, engine
cooling system or boat water systems may freeze
and cause damage. Be sure to keep up with all
annual maintenance during winterization.
Before performing any winterization and storage
procedures within this section, see Safety on
page 2-1.
Cruiser
WINTERIZATION AND
STORAGE
PREPARATION
The following procedures will help prevent
damage to your boat:
• While your boat is still in the water, fill fuel
tank(s) with fresh fuel and add the proper
amount of fuel stabilizer/conditioner according
to the engine manufacturer’s recommendations.
Operate your boat for at least 15 minutes to be
sure that the treated fuel has reached the
engine. NOTICE: If you plan to store your boat
for more than three months in either a humid
environment, extreme temperatures or
outdoors, “fog” the engine with a
corrosion-preventing fogging oil according to
the propulsion system manufacturer’s
recommendations. See the Engine Operator’s
Manual for more information.
• Once your boat is removed from the water,
remove the bilge drain plug immediately. Store
the drain plug in a plastic bag and tape it to the
throttle control lever for easy accessibility the
next time you use your boat.
• Inspect all sacrificial corrosion protection
anodes for excessive wear and replace as
necessary.
• Check all thru-hull fittings and other fasteners
for tightness and leakage.
• Thoroughly clean the hull, deck and interior of
your boat as soon as you remove it from the
water; marine growth is easier to remove when
it is wet.
• Always allow all boat compartments to air dry
for a couple of days to prevent mildew from
trapped moisture. If you use shrink wrap,
always allow for ventilation to prevent mildew
from trapped moisture.
11-1
Section 11
• Apply a coat of wax to the entire surface of your
boat and rust inhibitor on all metal parts.
• Clean all traces of dirt, oil, grime and grease
from the engine and bilge.
• After washing, raise the bow of your boat high
to allow as much water as possible to drain
while performing other storage preparations.
• Touch up areas where paint has been removed.
• Prepare the engine for storage according to the
Engine Operator’s Manual. Flush the engine
cooling system with clean water and/or a
nontoxic antifreeze mixture approved for marine
use. Never exceed the maximum engine rpm
for flushing recommended as stated in the
manual.
• Perform all scheduled maintenance for the
engine and boat equipment. See the Engine
Operator’s Manual and all equipment
manufacturer’s information for periodic and
annual maintenance procedures.
• Turn off all electrical switches and breakers.
• Remove all batteries from your boat. Clean,
fully charge and store the batteries in an area
outside your boat not subject to freezing
temperatures. Never store batteries close to
heat, sparks or open flames.
• Open all water faucets, drains and seacocks,
and thoroughly drain all tanks and water lines.
Use the freshwater pump to empty all the water
from the freshwater storage tank and intake
lines. Manually disconnect any lines that may
have residual water trapped.
• Empty all water from the water heater.
• Empty and clean the waste containment system
and flush with fresh water.
• Use nontoxic antifreeze approved for marine
use to prevent freeze damage in the freshwater,
raw water and waste systems. Consult your
local marina or certified marine technician for
recommendations for your system.
• Clean all interior upholstery, furniture,
appliances, etc.
• Pest/rodent repellents may help prevent
damage to your boat during storage.
11-2
STORING ON A
CRADLE OR BLOCKS
• When storing a boat on support other than the
proper trailer, make sure the hull is supported
properly to prevent hull damage. Most cradles
are custom-built to support the boat’s hull.
• Put the cradle or blocks on a hard, level surface
capable of supporting the combined weight of
the cradle and your boat.
• When using blocks with jack stands, always use
jack stands that are rated for more than the
required load, making sure they are securely
positioned so they cannot move under the load.
Use a minimum of three blocks to support the
keel and each side of your boat where
applicable. Use a minimum total of nine jacks
and/or blocks.
• Position your boat to allow for adequate
draining from rain or snow.
• Cover your boat to prevent the collection of rain,
snow or debris. When using a cover, allow
ventilation for residual moisture and
condensation to escape. Never cover or plug
the bilge drain hole.
• Position the lower unit drive in the DOWN
position.
STORING ON A
TRAILER
• Be sure the trailer supports are adjusted to
properly support your boat’s hull.
• Repack the trailer wheel bearings with
water-resistant wheel bearing grease.
• Park the trailer and boat in a protected area
with the lower unit drive in the DOWN position.
• Loosen tie-downs and winch line, but be sure
the boat is resting properly on hull supports.
• Lift the trailer and place blocks under the trailer
frame to relieve weight on trailer tires and
springs. Position the boat to allow for adequate
draining from rain or snow.
• Cover your boat to prevent the collection of rain,
snow or debris. When using a cover, allow
ventilation for residual moisture and
condensation to escape. Never cover or plug
the bilge drain hole.
Cruiser
Winterization and Storage
RECOMMISSIONING
AFTER STORAGE
• Remove blocks from under the trailer frame.
• Tighten tie-downs and the trailer winch line.
• Check tire pressure and lug nut tightness on the
trailer.
• Inspect the hull for damage.
• Charge and install all batteries.
• Check the bilge blower vents for obstructions
and blower operation.
• Check the bilge pump and float switch for
proper operation.
• Inspect all battery and electrical wiring for loose

• Clean the bilge area and install the boat bilge
drain plug.
• Lubricate all seacocks and check for proper
operation.
• Install all drain plugs in strainers and seacocks.
• Close all drains and valves that were opened
during winterization.
• Open all faucets and fill freshwater holding tank
with about 20 gallons of water. Turn freshwater
pump on to allow water to flow through all
faucets before closing them. Thoroughly flush
all lines and appliances with fresh water.
• Fill the freshwater tank.
• Perform any annual maintenance not performed
during winterization. See the Engine Operator’s
Manual and all equipment manufacturer’s
information for periodic and annual
maintenance procedures.
• Check the engine’s cooling water intake areas
and screens for obstructions.
• If the engine uses a self-contained freshwater
cooling system (stern drive only) and was
drained for storage, fill the system with fresh
coolant solution. Check the Engine Operator’s
Manual for specific procedures.
Cruiser
• Check all engine and generator exhaust
connections for exhaust leakage or damage.
• Check and lubricate the steering system.
• Check all navigational lights.
• Check all controls, gauges, boat systems,
accessories and related equipment for proper
operation.
• Check all fire extinguishers for charge level.
• Inspect all safety equipment for condition and
operation as applicable.
• When possible, briefly start and run the
engine(s) using proper water supply equipment
to check that the engine does start and there
are no major operational problems. NOTICE: If
fogging oil was used during winterization, the
engine will emit excessive white smoke upon
initial start-up. This condition is normal and will
diminish once the fogging oil has been cleared
through the engine.
• Once your boat is in the water, start the engine.
• Start the engine(s) and watch the gauge
readings closely, checking for leaks and
abnormal noises.
• Keep speeds low for the first 15 minutes until
the engine has reached normal operating
temperature.
• See the Engine Operator’s Manual and all
equipment manufacturer’s information for
additional recommendations.

GENERAL PROVISIONS:
All general, special, indirect, incidental and/or consequential damages are excluded from this warranty and are
totally disclaimed by MONTEREY BOATS. It is the intent of the parties that the owner's sole and exclusive remedy
is the repair or replacement of the product or its allegedly defective component parts and that no other legal or
equitable remedies shall be available to said owner. Some states do not allow the exclusion of incidental or
consequential damages so the inclusion of incidental or consequential damages may not apply to you. This is a
limited warranty. MONTEREY BOATS makes no warranty other than contained herein. To the extent allowed by law
any warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose arising in state law are expressly excluded. To
the extent allowed by law, any implied warranty of merchantability is limited to the duration of the limited warranty
applicable to the particular warranted part, component, or defect. All obligations of monterey boats are specifically
set forth herein. Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation
may not apply to you. MONTEREY BOATS' obligation with respect to this warranty is limited to making repairs to or
replacing the defective parts and no claim for breach of warranty shall be cause for cancellation or rescission of the
contract or sale for any boat manufactured by MONTEREY BOATS.
MONTEREY BOATS will discharge its obligations under this warranty as rapidly as possible, but cannot guarantee
any specific completion date due to the different nature of claims which may be made and services which may be
required. This limited warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which may vary
from state to state. No person, including a MONTEREY BOATS dealer, is authorized to make any repairs or
replacements under this warranty without the prior written approval of MONTEREY BOATS. MONTEREY BOATS
shall in no way be responsible for any repairs not PRE-AUTHORIZED by a MONTEREY BOATS Customer Service
Manager or repairs performed by a repair shop not PRE-AUTHORIZED by a MONTEREY BOATS Customer
Service Manager.
MONTEREY BOATS does not authorize any person to create or assume for it any other obligation or liability with
respect to its products. The sales personnel or other employees of MONTEREY BOATS dealers are not authorized
to make warranties concerning MONTEREY BOATS products. No brochure, pamphlet or other written or pictorial
presentation constitutes a warranty or representation as to any aspect of MONTEREY BOATS products.
MONTEREY BOATS shall have no obligation under this Lifetime Limited Warranty unless and until each of the
following conditions are met:
1. The original retail purchaser of its product or the MONTEREY BOATS dealer either completes and returns the
Warranty Registration to MONTEREY BOATS by mail or facsimile or the MONTEREY BOATS dealer registers
the Warranty electronically “online” within fifteen (15) days from the date the product is delivered to the original
retail purchaser;
2. Notice of each warranty claim is given to the MONTEREY BOATS dealer within a reasonable period of time
after discovery of any claimed defect;
Cruiser

identified in the respective warranties as measured from the date of purchase by the original retail purchaser;

MONTEREY BOATS reserves the right to make changes at any time, without notice, in prices or to make changes
in design, colors, specifications, equipment, options, materials, etc., and MONTEREY BOATS shall be under no
obligation to equip or modify product built prior to such changes.
