Engine & Accessories Guidelines
NOTICE
When storing your boat please refer to your engine’s operation and maintenance manuals.
• Your boat’s engine and accessories were selected to provide optimum performance and service.
• Installing a different engine or other accessories may cause unwanted handling characteristics.
• Should you choose to install a different engine or to add accessories that will affect the boat’s running trim, have
an experienced marine technician perform a safety inspection and handling test before operating your boat again.
Certain modifications to your boat can result in cancellation of your warranty protection. Always check with
your dealer before making any modifications to your boat.
Engine & Accessories Literature
• The engine and accessories installed on your boat come with their own operation and maintenance manuals.
• Read and understand these manuals before using the engine and accessories.
• Unless noted otherwise, all engine and accessory literature referred to in this Supplement is included in your
owner’s packet.
Qualified Maintenance
!
WARNING!
To maintain the integrity and safety of your boat, allow only qualified personnel to perform
maintenance on, or in any way modify: The steering system, propulsion system, engine control
system, fuel system, environmental control system, electrical system or navigational system.
Failure to maintain your boat’s systems (listed in the warning above) as designed could violate the laws in your jurisdiction and could expose you and other people to the danger of bodily injury or accidental death. Follow the instructions provided in the Cruiser & Yacht Owner’s Manual, this Owner’s Manual Supplement, the engine owner’s manual
and all accessory instruction sheets and manuals included in your boat’s owner’s packet.

Chapter 1: Welcome Aboard!
2252 Classic Cruiser • Owner’s Manual Supplement
Special Care For Moored Boats
NOTICE
• To help seal the hull bottom and reduce the possibility of gelcoat blistering on moored boats,
apply an epoxy barrier coating. The barrier coating should be covered with several coats of
anti-fouling paint.
• Many states regulate the chemical content of bottom paints in order to meet environmental
standards. Check with your local dealer about recommended bottom paints, and about the
laws in effect in your area.
Whether moored in saltwater or freshwater, your boat will collect marine growth on its hull bottom. This will detract
from the boat’s beauty, greatly affect its performance and may damage the gelcoat. There are two methods of slowing
marine growth:
• Periodically haul the boat out of the water and scrub the hull bottom with a bristle brush and a solution of soap
and water.
• The hull below the waterline may have anti-fouling paint applied by the factory. Occasionally you will need to
re-paint it with a good grade of anti-fouling paint.
Sacrificial Anodes (Zincs)
NOTICE
Do not paint between the zinc and the metal surface it contacts and do not paint over the zincs.
Your boat is equipped with sacrificial anodes (zincs) to protect underwater metal parts from excessive deterioration.
Check the zincs regularly and replace them if they have deteriorated more than 70%.
There are many factors that affect the rate at which the zincs deteriorate, including:
• Water temperature
• Salinity
• Water pollution
Stray electrical current from the boat or dock may cause complete deterioration in just a few weeks. If there is rapid
zinc deterioration, measure the electrolytic corrosion around your boat with a Corrosion Test Meter. If the zincs are
not bonded correctly, they will not provide protection.

2252 Classic Cruiser • Owner’s Manual Supplement
Chapter 1: Welcome Aboard!
Carbon Monoxide (CO)
!
DANGER!
• Carbon monoxide gas (CO) is colorless, odorless, tasteless, and
extremely dangerous.
• All engines, generators, and fuel burning appliances produce CO
as exhaust.
• Prolonged exposure to low concentrations or very quick exposure to
high concentrations will cause BRAIN DAMAGE or DEATH.
• Teak surfing, dragging, or water skiing within 20 feet of a moving
watercraft can be fatal.
Facts about CO
• CO poisoning causes a significant number of boating deaths each year.
• Called the "silent killer", CO is an extremely toxic, colorless, odorless and tasteless gas.
• CO can harm or even kill you inside or outside your boat.
• CO can affect you whether you’re underway, moored, or anchored.
• CO symptoms are similar to seasickness or alcohol intoxication.
• CO can make you sick in seconds. In high enough concentrations, even a few breaths can be fatal.
• Breathing CO blocks the ability of your blood to carry oxygen.
• The effects are cumulative, even low levels of exposure can result in injury or death.
Factors That Increase the Effects of CO Poisoning
• Age
• Smokers or people exposed to high concentrations of cigarette smoke
• Consumption of alcohol
• Lung disorders
• Heart problems
• Pregnancy

Chapter 1: Welcome Aboard!
2252 Classic Cruiser • Owner’s Manual Supplement
Where and How CO Can Accumulate
Stationary Conditions That Increase CO Accumulations Include:
A. Using engine,
generator, or
other fuel burning device
when boat is
moored in a
confined space.
B. Mooring too close to another boat that is using its
engine, generator, or other fuel burning device.
To correct stationary situations A and/or B:
• Close all windows, portlights and hatches.
• If possible, move your boat away from source of CO.
Running Conditions That Increase CO Accumulations Include:
C. Running boat with trim angle of bow too high.
D. Running boat without through ventilation (station wagon effect).
To correct running situations C and/or D:
• Trim bow down.
• Open windows and canvas.
• When possible, run boat so that prevailing winds help dissipate exhaust.
How to Protect Yourself and Others From CO
• Know where and how CO may accumulate in and around your boat (see above).
• Maintain fresh air circulation throughout the boat at all times.
• Know where your engine and generator exhaust outlets are located and keep everyone away from these areas.
• Never sit on, or hang onto, the back deck or swim platform while the engine(s) are running.
• Never enter the areas under swim platforms where exhaust outlets are located.
• Although CO can be present without the smell of exhaust fumes, if exhaust fumes are detected on the boat, take
immediate action to dissipate these fumes.
• Treat symptoms of seasickness as possible CO poisoning. Get the person into fresh air immediately. Seek medical attention—unless you’re sure it’s not CO.
• Install and maintain CO alarms inside your boat. Do not ignore any alarm. Replace alarms as recommended by
the alarm manufacturer.
• Follow the checklists provided on the next page.
• Get a Vessel Safety Check.
For information on how to get a free VESSEL SAFETY CHECK, visit www.vesselsafetycheck.org or contact your
local U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary or United States Power Squadrons®.

Trip Checklist
❏ Make sure you know where the exhaust outlets are located on your boat.
❏ Educate all passengers about the symptoms of CO poisoning and where CO may accumulate.
❏ When docked, or rafted with another boat, be aware of exhaust emissions from the other boat.
❏ Confirm that water flows from the exhaust outlet when the engines and generator are started.
❏ Listen for any change in exhaust sound, which could indicate an exhaust component failure.
❏ Test the operation of each CO alarm by pressing the test button.
Monthly Checklist
❏ Make sure all exhaust clamps are in place and secure.
❏ Look for exhaust leaking from exhaust system components. Signs include rust and/or black streaking, water

❏ Inspect rubber exhaust hoses for burned, cracked, or deteriorated sections. All rubber hoses should be pliable and
free of kinks.
Annual Checklist
Have a Qualified Marine Technician:
❏ Replace exhaust hoses if cracking, charring, or deterioration is found.
❏ Ensure that your engines and generators are properly tuned, and well maintained.
❏ Inspect each water pump impeller and the water pump housing. Replace if worn. Make sure cooling systems are
in working condition.
❏ Inspect all metal exhaust parts for cracking, rusting, leaking, or loosening and check the cylinder head gasket,
exhaust manifold, water injection elbow, and the threaded adapter nipple between the manifold and the elbow.
❏ Clean, inspect, and confirm proper operation of the generator cooling water anti-siphon valve (if equipped).

Autofloat Switches
• The automatic bilge pumps use electromagnetic float switches (autofloat) to turn On the pumps whenever water
rises above a preset level in the bilge.
• One autofloat switch is mounted next to each automatic bilge pump.
• The autofloat switches are wired directly to the battery and will normally function even when the boat is completely shut down and left unattended.
Test the autofloat switches often
as follows:
FLOAT SWITCH
TESTING
1. Push the float switch test button
up to turn On the bilge pump.
• If the pump does not turn On,
check the inline fuse.
• If the fuse is good but the switch
still does not work, it may mean
the switch is bad or possibly the
battery is low.
2. Push test button all the way
down to return the float switch
to auto mode.
