Yacht Certification
In accordance with the National Marine Manufacturers
Association (NMMA) and the American Boat and Yacht
Council (ABYC), all boats larger than 26 feet in length are
required to be Yacht Certified. Therefore, a per person
and/or pound capacity is not assigned to vessels over 26
feet in length. It is up to the operator’s discretion to
determine a safe load. These yacht standards are based
on Standards and Recommended Practices for Small
Craft published by the ABYC, 3069 Solomons Island
Road, Edgewater, MD 21037 (410-956-1050).
Warranty
The Pro-Line Boats Limited Warranty is attached to the warranty card. After signing the warranty card,
your dealer will provide you with your copy of the warranty and mail the warranty card to Pro-Line Boats,
Inc. A copy of the Pro-Line Boats Limited Warranty is also included in this chapter.
The Pro-Line Boats Limited Warranty extends only to parts that were factory installed. Dealer installed
items are the responsibility of the dealer. All warrantable repairs are to be completed by an authorized
Pro-Line dealer. Your dealer should be able to assist you with any service or warranty related issues.
If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the services performed by your dealer, we suggest that you
discuss the matter with the service manager. The service manager is responsible for the quality of
service being performed and has a direct interest in resolving your issues to your satisfaction. If the
matter is complicated and cannot be resolved to your satisfaction by the service manager, we suggest
that you talk to the general manager or owner. In most cases a compromise can be reached.
If the matter cannot be resolved by the dealership to your satisfaction, contact the Pro-Line Boats
Customer Service Department by calling 352-795-4111 or by writing to:
Pro-Line Boats, Customer Service Dept.
PO Box 1348
Crystal River, FL 34423-1348
FAX: 352-795-9373
So that your dealer and we can provide you with the best possible service, please have the following
information available when calling or writing:
HIN (Hull Identification Number)
Selling dealer’s name and location
Servicing dealer (if different from selling dealer)
Nature of problem
3
Names of dealership personnel involved with the situation
Record of service performed and approximate dates
When contacting Pro-Line Boats, please keep in mind that your issue will most likely be resolved
at the dealership, using their facilities, equipment, personnel and/or sublet repair facilities.
Note: There are items that are not covered by the Pro-Line Boats Limited Warranty, including but not
limited to the following:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Incidental and consequential damages (i.e., storage charges, telephone or rental charges
of any type, inconvenience or loss of time or income).
Damage caused by neglect, lack of maintenance, accident, abnormal operation, improper
installation or service.
Haul-out, launch and towing charges.
Transportation charges, service call charges and/or travel time to and from a repair
facility, customer’s home or marina.
Service requested by customer other than that which is necessary to satisfy the warranty
obligation.
Oils, lubricants or fluids used in normal maintenance.
Air freight, next-day or second-day air, or any special delivery fees unless pre-approved.
Gelcoat cracking, chalking, crazing, discoloration, yellowing or blistering.
Hull blisters that form below the water line: Osmosis blistering is not covered by our
limited warranty. The phenomenon of osmotic blistering is known to occur in salt water,
brackish water and/or fresh water. Any boat left in the water for any period of time is
susceptible. Most marine bottom paint manufacturers offer coatings that help protect the
hull against osmosis blistering. We highly recommend that you add a protective coating
to your hull. Find out which type of bottom paint is recommended for your area and have
an epoxy barrier coat and bottom paint applied by a professional.
Parts not installed by the factory
The Ten Year Limited Hull Structural Warranty is transferable to subsequent owners for a nominal fee.
Please contact your dealer or Pro-Line Boats to obtain the applicable transfer form so that the new owner
will have piece of mind knowing that their pre-owned boat comes with the same structural hull warranty
protection that was afforded to the original owner.

Safety
Your Pro-Line boat has been constructed with safety in mind. But, remember, boating safety and the
safety of your passengers is YOUR ultimate responsibility. You should fully understand the operations of
your vessel as well as the basics in boating safety.
Your local U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary (USCGA) and the U.S. Power Squadrons (USPS) offer excellent
safe boating classes several times a year. If you have not already passed a boating safety course, we
recommend that you do so at your earliest convenience.
Plan your trips carefully. Insure ample fuel supply and a reserve. Tell someone where you are going and
when you expect to return. Keep current charts onboard. Read USCG boating safety circulars and follow
the safety guidelines.
Carbon Monoxide
Be aware of and avoid conditions that can cause Carbon Monoxide poisoning (see USCG boating safety
circular 77). Sources of Carbon Monoxide (CO) include any gas or diesel engine and any flame from
items such as a charcoal grill, stove or heater. Carbon Monoxide can accumulate to deadly levels in
enclosed spaces. Always ventilate occupied areas of the vessel with fresh clean air.
In high concentrations, CO can be fatal within minutes. The effects of CO in lower concentrations are
cumulative and can be just as lethal over long periods of time. CO poison is often confused with
seasickness. So be aware of the following CO symptoms: Itchy and watery eyes, flushed appearance,
throbbing temples, inability to think coherently, ringing in the ears, tightness across the chest, headaches,
drowsiness, nausea, dizziness, fatigue, vomiting, collapse and convulsions.
Do not stand or swim near the motor when the engine is idling.
Carbon monoxide can harm and even kill you inside or outside your boat!
Did you also know:
• CO symptoms are similar to seasickness or alcohol intoxication?
• CO can affect you whether you're underway, moored or anchored?
• You cannot see, smell or taste CO?
• CO can make you sick in seconds? In high enough concentrations, even a few breaths
can be fatal.
Most important of all, did you know CO poisonings are preventable? Every boater should be aware of
the risks associated with CO - what it is; where it may accumulate; and the symptoms of CO poisoning.
To protect yourself, your passengers and those around you, learn all you can about CO.
Emergency Treatment for CO Poisoning
CO poisoning or toxicity is a life-threatening emergency that requires immediate action. The following
is a list of things that should be done if CO poisoning is suspected. Proceed with caution. The victim
may be in an area of high CO concentration, which means you or others could also be in danger from
exposure to CO.
•
•
•
•
Evaluate the situation and ventilate the area, if possible.
Evacuate the area and move affected person(s) to a fresh air environment.
Observe the victim(s).
Administer oxygen, if available.
6
•
•
Contact medical help. If the victim is not breathing, perform rescue breathing or
approved cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), as appropriate, until medical help arrives.
Prompt action can mean the difference between life and death.
Shut off potential sources of CO, if possible. Correct ventilation problems and/or repair
exhaust problems as appropriate. Investigate the source of CO and take corrective
action, such as evacuating and ventilating the area or shutting off the source of the CO,
while at the same time evacuating and ventilating the area.
Where CO May Accumulate - Carbon Monoxide can accumulate anywhere in or around your boat
as shown in the following pictures:
Inadequately ventilated canvas enclosures.
Exhaust gas trapped in enclosed places.
Blocked exhaust outlets.
Another vessel's exhaust. CO from the boat docked next to you can
be just as deadly.
"Station wagon effect" or back drafting.
At slow speeds, while idling, or stopped. Be aware that CO can
remain in or around your boat at dangerous levels, even if your
engine or the other boat's engine is no longer running!
How to Protect Others & Yourself
You are in command of your boating safety. Follow these simple steps to help keep Carbon Monoxide
from poisoning you, your passengers or others around you.
7
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Know where and how CO may accumulate in and around your boat.
Maintain fresh air circulation throughout the boat at all times. Run exhaust blowers
whenever the generator is operating.
Know where your engine and generator exhaust outlets are located and keep everyone
away from these areas.
Never sit, teak surf or hang on the back deck or swim platform while the engines are
running. (Teak Surfing is a new and dangerous boating fad that involves an individual
holding on to the “teak” swim platform of a vessel while a wake builds up then lets go to
body surf on the wave created by the boat; hence the term - Teak Surfing.) Teak surfing
is never a safe activity.
Never enter areas under swim platforms where exhaust outlets are located unless the
area has been properly ventilated.
Although CO can be present without the smell of exhaust fumes, if you smell exhaust
fumes, CO is also present. 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 are sure it is not CO.
Install and maintain CO alarms inside your boat. Do not ignore any alarm. Replace
alarms as recommended by the alarm manufacturer.
Get a Vessel Safety Check. A VSC is a free bow-to-stern safety examination.
Fire
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Be aware of and avoid conditions that can lead to accidental fire.
Guard against and watch for fuel spills and leaks.
Inspect wiring for damage or exposure that could lead to short circuits or arcing.
Make sure those who smoke are careful to avoid accidental fire ignition.
Do not allow smoking while fueling.
Keep a USCG approved fire extinguisher on board at all times.
Inspect the fire extinguisher regularly, learn how to use it properly and instruct others as
well.
Use water to fight a fire as a last resort after making arrangements to abandon the boat if
a fire should get out of control.
Keep the following in mind if a fire is burning out of control and you must abandon the
boat:
o Abandon the boat into the wind to minimize burn risk from floating fuel.
o Wear a PFD unless you must swim under burning fuel.
o If swimming under burning fuel, throw a PFD outside of the burning area
and swim under the burning fuel to it.
Equipment
USCG regulations require that you have the following Coast Guard approved equipment onboard while
operating your boat:
• Fire extinguisher(s)
• Personal Flotation Device (PFD) for each occupant
• One throwable PFD
• Sound signal device
• Navigational lights if operated at night
• Sight signal device approved for day and night use when in coastal waters or the great
lakes

In addition, here is a list of suggested equipment you should have aboard your Pro-Line:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
First aid kit and blankets
Mooring lines and fenders
Combination oar/boat hook
Spare prop and hardware
Spare fuses and bulbs
Local charts and compass
2 way radio
Floating key chain and spare keys

Flooding
Be aware of and avoid conditions that can cause your boat to flood with water. Possible causes of
flooding include:
•
•
•
•
Damage to the hull or thru-hull fitting
Waves washing into the boat
Water entering cockpit due to improper loading
Failure to properly install the drain plug.
The boat will become flooded and may swamp, capsize or sink if water enters the boat faster than the
bilge pump can expel it.
Hazardous Conditions
Keep track of weather developments and avoid hazardous conditions whenever possible. When forced to
operate your Pro-Line in storm conditions:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Wear PFD's.
Stow loose gear and equipment.
Place heavy items as low as possible.
Head for the easiest port to reach a safe location.
Reduce speed. You are moving too fast if the boat leaves the water.
If power fails, anchor or rig a sea anchor off the bow (an empty ice chest in a pinch).
Stay with the boat if it capsizes, unless it is burning out of control.
Passenger Safety
You are responsible for the safety and conduct of your passengers. Make sure that:
•
•
•
•
You instruct your passengers on the proper use and location of PFD's. Children and
non-swimmers should wear one at all times.
Each passenger is in a safe location when underway and knows to keep the boat
balanced.
At least one other person knows how to operate the boat in case of an emergency.
Your passengers are aware of propeller dangers and the possibility of sudden maneuvers
and jolts.
9
•
•
The engine is turned off and the key is removed when swimmers are near the prop or
using the dive platform.
All passengers keep away from lines under stress in case they break and recoil.
Regulations
The USCG is the authority of all waterways. Local authorities enforce State Boating Regulations. You
are subject to marine traffic laws and "Rules of the Road" for both federal and state waterways.
Therefore, you must submit to boarding if requested by the proper authority. There are many publications
available from the Coast Guard concerning regulations. Call the United States Coast Guard Info Line at
(800)-368-5647 for additional information.
Rules of the Road
Know and use the “Rules of the Road”. Your boat is subject to U.S. Coast Guard enforced marine traffic
laws know as “Rules of the Road.” There are two sets of rules: the US Inland Navigation Rules and the
International Rules. The latter rules are applicable to all vessels inside the demarcation lines separating
inland and international waters. You may obtain a copy of the rules from any of the following and by
requesting the publication titled “Navigational Rules, International - Inland.”

Audible warning signals:
o One short horn blast: starboard course change.
o Two short horn blasts: port course change.
o Three short horn blasts: astern operation.
o Five horn blasts: doubt about previous signal or danger.
o A Five-second horn blast every minute: for fog operation.
When overtaking, give-way vessel announces intention with horn blast(s) and waits for a
response, then completes maneuver.
When approaching head-on, both boats give way after giving appropriate horn blast(s)
(preferably to starboard).
When crossing, a vessel converging from starboard has the right-of-way. Port vessel
gives way (both acknowledge with one short horn blast).
Know and observe navigational buoys and markers.
Give way to craft under sail.
Alcohol
Don't drink and drive. If you have been drinking, appoint someone who is an experienced boater and has
not been drinking to be the designated driver. Never operate a boat under the influence of drugs or
alcohol. Operation of motorized vessels while under the influence is a Federal offense carrying a
significant penalty.

Controls
Controls and engine systems vary greatly from one engine manufacturer to another. Please read your
engine owner’s manual carefully.
Throttle & Shift Controls for Twin or Triple
Ignition – Binnacle, Forward, Neutral and Reverse Gear Operation
The Binnacle on the 35 Express is located on the starboard side of the console forward of the helm seat.
To ensure that the Binnacle is working properly, shift the Binnacle forward to put the engine in forward
gear. Make sure the engine shifts smoothly into idle with no grinding of the gears. Bring the Binnacle
back into neutral and repeat the same process while going into reverse. Again, ensure that there are no
gears grinding. It is important to check the Binnacle at wide-open throttle (WOT) to ensure the Binnacle
is not stiff and operates smoothly while going into the WOT position.
Actual Binnacle will vary depending upon the engine package that was selected.
Key Switch Alarm
The Key Switch Alarm is located in the binnacle and sounds when the ignition key is turned on. The Key
Switch Alarm is actually is a warning alarm that goes off when any overheating problems may occur with
the engine. To check the Key Switch Alarm, turn the ignition key to the right but do not start the engine.
The alarm will sound ensuring that the engine warning alarm is working properly. When finished, turn the
key off.
Lanyard Stop Switch
To ensure the lanyard stop switch (also called the emergency stop feature) on the engine works properly,
first turn on the ignition key and start up the engine. While the engine is running, locate the lanyard stop
switch. The lanyard stop switch will be either on the base of the binnacle or underneath the ignition key.
While the engine is running in the neutral position, pull the lanyard stop switch downward until the plastic
element at the end of the lanyard pulls the stop switch pin into the off position. This process will
automatically stop the engine and will ensure that the emergency lanyard stop switch is working properly.

Electronic Throttle & Shift Controls (Optional)
Some engine packages (i.e., Mercury Verado, Mercury Opti Max DTS, etc.) include Electronic Throttle &
Shift Controls. This option is also available as an option for all other engine packages. The Electronic
Throttle & Shift Controls provide easier shift and throttle functions and little or no resistance. You may
occasionally feel some friction at the binnacle but this can be adjusted at the binnacle per the instructions
provided by the engine manufacturer.
If your engine package includes the optional Electronic Throttle & Shift Controls and you have purchased
the optional Tower for the Hard Top, the Tower controls will also be electronic.
Shift / Throttle / Trim
Your Pro-Line can be ordered with different shift/throttle systems based upon motor type. Refer to the
owner's packet to find the manual pertaining to your particular installation. Each motor has an individual
tilt/trim switch located on the port throttle lever. Separate shift and throttle controls are available for each
outboard motor.
The throttle lever has three range positions: “Forward”, “Neutral”, and “Reverse”. The shift function
occurs in the first portion of the lever travel. After the transmission is shifted into gear, further movement
of the lever advances the throttle.
Push the throttle lever ahead to move forward and pull it back for reverse. Centralize the lever to the
detent for neutral. The throttle lever is equipped with a neutral safety switch to prevent the motor from
starting in gear. The initial short movement of the lever to engage the transmission should be made firmly
to avoid causing gear clash.
CAUTION: Use care in shifting to avoid advancing the throttle more than intended.
Steering - Hydraulic with Tilt Steering
Steering systems will differ depending upon your selection of engine package. Please carefully read the
owner’s manual provided by the specific manufacturer.
12
Steering
Your Pro-Line is equipped with a self-contained hydraulic steering system. When the steering wheel is
turned, the helm pump pumps fluid to the steering cylinder causing it to extend or retract. Periodically,
check the fluid level and fill as necessary. Beware of adding too much fluid, especially if the ambient
temperature is cold because subsequent expansion could cause leaking or damage to your system.
Refer to the owner’s manual that was provided by your engine manufacturer.
After every 24 hours of operation check all nuts, caps, and hose fittings for tightness. Make sure the
hoses are not chafing or kinking on sharp corners. Also, check that hose ends are not damaged or
distorted. The fluid should be changed annually under normal conditions and every six months during
times of heavy usage. If your steering does not operate properly, check the following:
•
•
•
•
Drive entanglements
Level of the hydraulic steering fluid
Hoses and/or fittings for leaks
Air in the steering system.
To properly check the Steering system on the 35 Express, start by turning the steering wheel port to
starboard. If the engine does not respond the same time as the steering wheel is being turned, this
means that there is air in the Steering system and the Steering system needs re-bleeding. When there is
air in the steering, the steering wheel will feel “loose”. Contact your dealer to have them bleed the
steering system.
Steering Wheel
The stainless steel Steering Wheel is mounted at the helm
along with the binnacle, switch panel and other controls.
Please refer to the Care and Maintenance section of this
manual for cleaning recommendations.
Power Trim
The Power Trim unit is located on the engine and can be operated by using the trim button on the engine
or by using the trim toggle switch on the binnacle. To ensure the Power Trim is working, start by pressing
the toggle trim switch in the up position and trim the engine to the full up position. Repeat the same
process by pressing the trim toggle switch down and the engine will go into the full down position. See
the Trim and Tilt information in the Operations section of this manual.
Trim Tabs
The Trim Tabs on the 35 Express come equipped with auto retract. The planing tabs are located on each
side of the transom on the bottom of the hull. The Trim Tabs operate independently, up or down, to
correct for differing conditions of wind or load. Refer to the owner’s packet for specific information.
Check the operations of your Trim Tabs before getting underway. To operate the Trim Tabs locate the
Trim Tab rocker switches on the console. Press both switches forward and hold them down. This will
engage both Trim Tabs and will ensure they are working properly while in the full down position.
The switch on the port side operates the starboard Trim Tab. The switch on the starboard side operates
the port Trim Tab. To check each Trim Tab individually, press one of the Trim Tab rocker switches to the
forward position and check to see if the opposite Trim Tab goes down. For example if the starboard Trim
13
Tab switch is being pressed down, the port Trim Tab should be going down. Repeat the same process
for the opposite side.
While underway and in open water, clear of other boaters, depress the top half of the switches in halfsecond increments to achieve the desired degree of trim. To correct a starboard list, depress the top half
of the port switch in small increments until the list is corrected. To avoid over trim, allow a few seconds
between tab adjustments to allow the boat to respond. If you over trim, simply give the over trimmed tab
an adjustment in the opposite direction. Push the top half of both rocker switches in half-second
increments to trim the bow down.
Warning: Trim tabs can cause a dramatic change in the attitude and heading of your
boat. Adjust them in small increments when in open water and clear of any obstructions.
Windlass w/Rope & Chain
The Windlass anchor system is located on the bow of the 35 Express. It is an electric hands free anchor
system that allows the driver to raise or lower the anchor while staying at the helm. The windlass comes
with 200 feet of ½ inch line and 6 feet of ¼ inch rode.
The windlass is operated by a separate switch and is protected by a 50-amp breaker. The switch is
located at the helm. The breaker is located on the console in close proximity to the switch.
14
To operate the Windlass, press the Windlass toggle switch to the down position to release the anchor and
line. After dropping the anchor, be sure to tie the line off at one of the cleats. If you do not tie off at a
cleat, the constant pull against the line could cause the windlass motor to fail. To retrieve the anchor,
press the Windlass switch to the up position and carefully raise the anchor up but not allowing it to hit the
boat.

Alternating Current and Direct Current Panel (AC/DC Panel)
The AC/DC panel (electrical distribution panel) is
located inside the cabin, on the starboard aft wall of
the main salon. The bottom half of the panel
controls your AC accessories and runs off of shore
power (standard equipment) or the generator
(optional equipment). The top half of the panel
controls your DC accessories and runs off of the
dealer installed batteries.
DC Panel
Alternating Current (AC)
Power to your AC accessories is provided either by
shore power (standard equipment) or the
Generator (optional equipment). There is a slide
mechanism on the AC panel that will need to be
positioned either up or down depending upon which
power source you select.
When using your shore power to provide power to
the alternating current system, the slide mechanism
needs to be in the “Down” position in order to
switch the AC Main breaker to the “On” position
AC Panel
When using your optional generator to provide power to the alternating current system, the slide
mechanism needs to be in the “Up” position in order to switch the generator breaker to the “On” position.
If the polarity light (red) comes on, you may have a problem with the shore power cable or your power
source. Unplug the shore power immediately and do not use it until a qualified technician corrects this
potentially dangerous situation.
The AC volts and the AC amperes gauges allow you to monitor the AC power usage. The system is
designed to pull up to 50 amps. If you are pulling more than 50 amps, you should turn off one or more of
the breakers for the accessories that you are not using. Pulling more than 50 amps will cause the AC
system to trip one or more of the breakers. To avoid tripping breakers, if an accessory is not in use, the
breaker should be in the “Off” position.
16
The AC panel provides power to the following:
Cabin Outlet 1
Cabin Outlet 2
Refrigerator
Battery Charger
Coffee Maker
Air Conditioner
Microwave
Water Heater
Stove
Spare
If you wish to utilize the spare switch, you will need to install a switch and wiring. Before doing so, please
refer to the information provided by the manufacturer of the new component to be sure that the new
switch and wiring are compatible with the new component.

Additional DC switches and breakers are located on the console. There is also a DC terminal buss panel
located behind the helm. To access this panel, remove the two (2) stainless steel bolts forward of the
helm and tilt the helm aft towards the helm seat. The 12-volt direct current provides electrical power for
all lighting, pumps, electronics and DC devices.
The DC volt gauge indicates the maximum number of volts that are available at the DC panel. We
recommend that you keep an eye on the volt gauge to make sure that you have enough DC volts
available to continue operating the DC equipment that you are currently using. Pulling more than the
maximum available volts (12 – 14.5 volts) will cause breakers to trip and will turn off your DC accessories.
Battery Charger (35 AMP)
The battery charger is installed in the bilge on the aft side
of the forward bulkhead. It is designed to recharge your
batteries and extend the life of your batteries in
applications where the batteries may be stored for long
periods of time.
This battery charger incorporates three 10-amp chargers
and one 5-amp charger into one rugged, waterproof
housing. It provides fast recharging power, as well as
maintenance charging for a cranking or house battery.
Batteries can be fully recharged in just 5 hours.
For operational procedures and information related to the care and maintenance of the battery charger,
please refer to the owner’s manual provided by the manufacturer of the battery charger. When in doubt,
always defer to the battery charger manufacturer’s instructions and/or recommendations.

•
•
•
Red light labeled port engine charging house B indicates that the port battery is charging
the house battery
Green light labeled starboard engine charging house B indicates that the starboard
battery is charging the house battery.
Red lights labeled port battery, house battery and starboard battery indicate that the
switch on the console control panel is turned on.
When any of the red lights on the remote control panel are illuminated, this indicates that the switch on
the panel is turned on.
If an engine fails to start because of a low or dead start battery, engage and hold the momentary switch
located at the helm for approximately 20 – 30 seconds to start the engine. Then, release the switch. The
prudent operator should frequently check all wire connections to make sure that they are tight, clean and
secure.
Circuit Breakers
Circuit breakers and/or fuses protect the wiring on your 35 Express. In the event a device stops working,
check to see if the circuit breaker is tripped or if the fuse is blown. Breakers are installed in the following
locations:
•
•
•
The main breakers (DC main and helm main) are located next to the Target
Charger/Battery Management System and are accessible via the storage compartment
hatch located at the port side of the transom (see photo of the Target Charger/Battery
Management System).
Breakers and/or fuses for the bilge pumps, trim tabs, stereo and accessories are located
above the main breakers.
Additional breaker switches are also located on the switch panel above the individual

18
A tripped breaker will protrude or move from its set position indicating that the circuit has been
overloaded. Turn off the device(s) on the circuit, then reset the breaker by pushing in once or by
returning a breaker switch to the “ON” position. If the breaker does not reset or if it resets and then trips
again after the device is turned back on, then a short circuit exists or your device may be damaged,
overloaded, or faulty. Correct the problem and then reset the breaker.
Circuit Breakers – On the switch panel above the individual switches
If the breaker continues to trip and you are certain the device, switch and wiring are in good repair; either
the breaker is faulty or it is too small for the load. Reduce the load or replace the breaker.
Blower
The blower (standard with the optional generator) is located inside the
bilge and helps keep fresh air circulating in the bilge area. You should

down or aft position.
7, 8, 9
Bilge Pumps (Bilge 1, Bilge 2, Fwd) - Your 35 Express is equipped with 3 bilge pumps.
•
•
Bilge 1 and bilge 2 are both 1500 gph bilge pumps and they are located side by
side in the bilge. Bilge 1 is installed on the starboard side and Bilge 2 is
installed on the port side. If your vessel is equipped with the optional generator,
the bilge pumps will be installed just forward of the unit.
Fwd Bilge - This 1100 gph pump is located and accessible via the hinged panel under
the mattress in the mid berth.
All bilge pumps are wired automatic to the battery and have a manual override located at the
switch panel on the console. The automatic float switches are wired directly to the Starboard
battery terminals through breakers or inline fuses. Circuit breakers for the main and forward
pumps are located at the helm next to the manual switches.
Keep the bilge area clean and free from debris that could clog ports or inhibit float movement.
Also, keep the battery (starboard) that provides power to the bilge pumps charged. If the battery
is not charged and flooding occurs, the boat could swamp causing damage and possible loss of
life or property.
Depressing the applicable bilge pump Switch (Bilge 1, Bilge 2 or Fwd) to the up or forward
position activates the corresponding bilge pump.
If for some reason the indicator light on one of your bilge pump switches comes on, check your
bilge for water. It is not uncommon for rain water or water from washing your boat to
accumulate in the bilge. Standing water will activate the automatic float that is connected to the
bilge pump. If you notice your pump running frequently during your day on the water, you
should check the thru hull fittings, hose connections, etc. for any possible leaks.
23
10
Washdown – The washdown pump is located below the mid berth on the starboard side and is
mounted on a seacock (ball valve). To activate the pump, depress the switch to the up or
forward position. The washdown pump draws its water from the same seacock that the baitwell
pump draws its water. To turn the pump off, depress the switch in the down position. Keep the
Washdown switch in the “Off” position if the pump is not going to be used soon.
11
Baitwell Pump - The baitwell pump is located below the mid berth on the starboard side and it is
mounted on a seacock (ball valve). For the baitwell pump to operate properly you need to make
sure the seacock is in the open position. The seacock is wide open when the yellow seacock
lever is vertical to the pump. When the yellow seacock lever is horizontal to the pump, the
seacock is closed. Please note that this pump is mounted on its side.
The underside of the seacock thru-hull is equipped with a scoop to allow the water to be picked
up even when the boat is on plane. When the boat is not in the water or the baitwell pump is not
going to be used for an extended period of time, the seacock valve should be in the closed
position.
To activate the pump, depress the switch to the up or forward position. To turn the pump off
after the baitwell tub is full, depress switch to the down or aft position.
12
Fish Box Pump - This switch operates the fish box
macerator pump that allows you to drain the water
and debris from the fish boxes. The macerator pump,
which is connected to the collector box (located in the
center of the bilge), allows you to pump all the water,
ice and scales out of the boxes by grinding up the
debris and discharging it overboard.
To activate the pump manually, depress the switch to
the up or forward position.
This action will drain the fish boxes of water and/or debris, transport it into the collector
box/holding tank and then to the macerator pump to be macerated and/or discharged overboard.
When not in use, the switch should be left in the off or down position. Even though your ProLine is equipped with a true gutter system, sometimes water will accumulate in the fish boxes.
As long as there is power to the fish box macerator pump, the automatic float switches located
in the holding tank will activate the pump and automatically discharge the water overboard.
13
Windshield Wiper(s) – The port and starboard wipers are standard equipment. Press the switch
in the forward or up position to activate the starboard wiper. Depressing the “3 position switch”
to the down or aft position will activate both the port and starboard wipers. The center position
on the switch is the off position for both wipers. See additional information on this component in
the “Windows, Hatches & Doors” section of this manual.

Full Instrumentation / Gauges
All gauges are installed on the console but the configuration and specific location of your gauges will vary
depending upon the selection of the various optional engine packages. If your engine package includes
analog gauges (i.e., Faria), the gauges will light up when the navigation lights are on. If your engine
package includes digital gauges provided by the engine manufacturer (i.e., Mercury SmartCraft, Honda,
Yamaha, etc.), the gauges will light up only when the engine is on.
Note: For boats rigged with analog gauges (i.e., Faria), the gauge configuration may
include individual gauges for the Temperature, Trim, Volts and Fuel or a multifunction
gauge that includes these 4 gauge functions. For boats rigged with digital gauges, the
Temperature, Trim, Volts and Fuel gauges are incorporated into the Tachometer gauge.
Tachometer
The tachometer (tach) gauges are located on the console. To ensure the tach is working properly, simply
turn the ignition key on and start the engine. While the engine is idling, the Tach should be reading in the
proper rpm range recommended for the engine. Your engine manual will indicate the appropriate rpm
range. When you are running at wide-open throttle, the tach should read near the top end of the
recommended rpm range.
If the rpm readings are working correctly and the engine throttle settings are correct, the tachometer is
operating properly. If the tachometer is not reading correctly, refer to the manual provided by the
manufacturer of the gauge that was included in your owner’s package
Speedometer
The Speedometer (speedo) is located on the console. To ensure that the speedo is working properly, get
the boat on a planing speed and check to see if it is reading at the approximate running speed at which
the boat is traveling.
28
Note: The speed-reading on the speedo may vary a few mph from the actual speed that
the boat is traveling. Either a GPS or a radar gun can check the running speed.
Temperature
The temperature (temp) gauge/indicator is labeled temp and is located on the console. To verify that the
temp gauge is working properly, start the engine and allow the engine to idle for a few minutes to ensure
that the engine is warmed up. The indicator will light up if the engine is overheating. Check the owner’s
manual provided by your engine manufacturer for the recommended temperature range for your engines.
Trim
To ensure the trim gauges/indicators are working properly, start by making sure the engine is trimmed all
the way down. Locate the trim gauge on the instrument panel and check to see if the level on the trim
gauge is in the full down position. As you trim the engine up, watch the trim gauge and ensure that it
coincides with the actual trim of the engine. When finished trimming the engine all the way up, the level
on the trim gauge should read in the full up position.
Volts
To system check the volt gauge, turn the ignition key on and turn on the engine. With the engine running,
check the reading on the volt gauge. It should be reading between 12 and 14.5 volts. This reading
ensures that the charging system and the volt gauge are working properly.
Fuel
The fuel gauge reads the amount of fuel remaining in the tank. To check the fuel gauge, place a known
amount of fuel into the fuel fill and fill the tank. Turn the ignition key on and the fuel gauge should read
the approximate amount of fuel in the tank.
For example: If the fuel tank holds 320 gallons of fuel and you pumped 80 gallons of fuel
into the tank, the fuel gauge should read approximately 1/4 of a tank. This ensures that
the fuel tank gauge and the fuel sender are working properly.
If the fuel gauge is not reading correctly, we recommend that you have the fuel sender checked by your
Pro-Line dealer’s Service Department or other qualified professional before considering changing out the
gauge. For more information, please refer to the “Fuel/Oil Systems” section of this manual.
For specific information related to your gauges, refer to the materials in your owner’s package that was
provided by the gauge manufacturer.

The optional air conditioner uses sea-water for cooling. The air conditioner seacock is located inside the
cabin beneath the mid berth and a strainer is located between the seacock and the cooling (sea water)
pump. Do not operate the unit if cooling water is not flowing or the pump will be damaged. If the unit fails
to cool, inspect the intake and strainer for blockage. Make sure the seacock is open when in use and
closed when not in use.
The sea-water cooling system may develop an air lock at high speed or if the boat is removed from the
water. An air lock will cause cooling water to fail to flow through the system. Open the strainer to purge
air from the system and eliminate the air lock. This should be done each time the boat is put in the water.
31
Please refer to the owner’s manual provided by the manufacturer of the air conditioning unit for
operational procedures and for information related to the care and maintenance of their product. When in
doubt, always defer to the air conditioner manufacturer’s instructions and/or recommendations.

If the fresh water system is not in going to be in use, return to the AC/DC Panel in the cabin and turn the
fresh water switch to the off position.
Note: If you should hear a sucking sound, you may have a leak on the inlet side of the
fresh water tank. The tank is located under the hinged panel in the mid berth and there
are 2 hoses connected to the top of the tank. The larger diameter hose is the water fill
hose and the smaller diameter hose is the water vent hose. Inspect the hoses for leaks
and make certain that the hose connections are secure.
When you close all of the faucets, the pump will run briefly. If the pump continues to run with all faucets
closed, check the system for leaks or have the pump tested.
Shower System and Shower Sump Pump
The shower sump pump is used to pump out any gray water (used
water) from the system. The pump is installed below the mid berth
mattress and is accessible under an access panel on the port side
of the berth. Water from the sink and floor drains, in the head area,
is pumped out via this system.
Under normal operations, as water drains through the sink and
shower drains, the float switch activates the pump and allows the
gray/used water to be pumped overboard.
To operate the shower system and the sump pump, go to the AC/DC panel in the cabin, locate the DC
main, sump pump and fresh water switches and move them all to the on position. Visually inspect the
sump pump to ensure it is properly secured and listen to hear the pump running.
Turn all switches (DC main, sump pump and fresh water) back to the off position once you have finished
using the sump pump system.

The 6-gallon capacity water heater is located behind the wall
panel on the port side of the cockpit storage area.
To operate the water heater, locate the water heater and the AC
main switches on the AC/DC panel and turn them both to the on
position. Allow the water heater pump to operate for a couple of
minutes then turn on the hot water faucet either in the galley or in
the head. When finished, turn off all the water faucets along with
the water heater and DC main switches on the AC/DC panel.
Head Waste System
WHAT IS THE LAW?
Congress enacted the Clean Water Act of 1972 (amended in 1987). This law addresses a wide spectrum
of water pollution problems, including marine sewage from boats in navigable U.S. waters including
coastal waters up to three miles offshore. The law further provides for "no discharge" by boats operated
in enclosed lakes and reservoirs or in rivers not capable of interstate navigation. States may apply to the
EPA to have certain other waters declared "no discharge zones" if discharge of treated sewage would be
harmful. In short, boats with installed toilets must have an operable Coast Guard approved Marine
Sanitation Device (MSD) designed to either hold sewage for pump out ashore or for discharge in the
ocean beyond the three mile limit, or to treat the sewage to Federal standards prior to discharge.
34
All boats built since 1977 with installed toilets must have an operable approved type I, II or III MSD.
Since 1980, all boats (including those built before 1977) with installed toilets must have an operable MSD.
Both the U.S. Coast Guard and the Natural Resources Police can enforce MSD requirements.
Check with your local authorities, Coast Guard, local marina or your dealer for the rules and/or laws that
may apply specifically in your area.
Dockside Discharge Waste Outlet
This stainless steel fitting labeled waste is located amidships on the port gunwale. Twist the cap to open
the fitting and connect to your marina’s dockside service facilities.
Vacuum Flush with Dockside Discharge
Your Pro-Line is equipped with a VacuFlush head system
and dockside discharge. To operate or test the system,
make sure that your fresh water tank is full of water.
Make sure that the DC main, fresh water, and head
switches on the AC/DC panel are all in the on position.
To flush the VacuFlush head system, use your foot to
depress the pedal at the base of the head. This action
will pump fresh water into the stool, empty the head and
transfer all waste into the waste tank. When you release
the pedal, water will stop entering the stool and the
flushing action will cease.
You can check the waste level in the waste tank by
monitoring the lights on the Tank Watch 4 panel, which is
located next to the AC/DC panel. As waste enters the
tank, the lights will change to indicate the waste level
(i.e., green for empty, yellow for low, orange for mid level,
red for full).
Head overboard /

macerator pump
Your boat is equipped to offer you the option of using overboard or dockside discharge to pump out the
waste tank. Before using the overboard discharge system, be sure to check with your local authorities,
Coast Guard, local marina or your dealer for the rules and/or laws that may apply specifically in your area.
Overboard Discharge - To operate the system, first make sure that the DC main, fresh water, DC
macerator and head switches on the AC/DC panel are all in the on position. Then, turn the key on the
Tank Master 4 panel to the “automatic” position. The green light will come on indicating that the system is
working and waste will begin pumping overboard via the thru hull located amidships on the port side of
the hull. Once the tank level reaches the “low” level in the tank, the green light will go out and the system
will turn off. You will need to turn the key to the “manual” position to complete the pump out process.
If the system does not seem to be pumping properly (water should shoot out approx. 10 feet via the thru
hull), check for leaks, loose clamps, etc.
For limited access to hose connections, remove the tackle box and frame by removing only the top 2 and
bottom 2 screws of the tackle box. The other 4 screws hold the frame to the tackle box. Check the hose
connections to be sure that there is no leak. Then, lift the hinged hatch on the bottom of the mid berth
and check the fittings and/or clamps on the pump. For full access to hose connections, remove the port
side wall inside the mid berth.
Refer to the manual in your owner's packet supplied by the manufacturer of the VacuFlush system for
specific operating instructions.
35
Dockside Discharge – When at a marina that offers dockside discharge, the marina will provide the
facilities needed to perform this operation. You will not need to use the Tank Watch system. The
stainless steel fitting labeled “Waste” is located amidships on the port gunwale. Twist the cap to open the
fitting and insert the hose provided by the marina into the dockside discharge waste outlet to connect to
your marina’s dockside service facilities. Follow the instructions provided by the marina to operate their
equipment.
Warning: Waste in the holding tank can form methane, an explosive gas. Use suitable
precautions when any maintenance is done to the sanitary system.
Head Macerator Pump
The head macerator pump is located in the cabin behind the port wall in the mid berth. To operate the
macerator pump, locate the DC main, fresh water and the head switches on the AC/DC panel inside the
cabin. Turn all 3 switches to the on position and go into the head area. Press the pedal on the side of
the electric head to fill the toilet bowl and empty the contents. This flushes the contents of the head into
the holding tank. When the system is not in use, turn all 3 switches to the off position at the AC/DC
panel.
Note: There must be fresh water in the fresh water holding tank in order for the Head
macerator pump to operate and properly flush the system. Operating the pump with an
empty tank could cause serious damage to the pump.
Sea Water System
Baitwell Pump
The baitwell switch at the helm controls the baitwell pump (800 gph), which is mounted on a seacock
under the starboard access panel on the berth in the mid-cabin. Raw water for the baitwell tub comes
through the seacock, to the baitwell pump and then to the baitwell tub.
Before turning the pump on from the helm, check to be sure that the seacock is open. The seacock is
wide open when the yellow seacock lever is vertical to the bottom of the hull. When the yellow seacock
lever is horizontal to the bottom of the hull, the seacock is closed. The seacock should remain closed
when the baitwell pump is not in use.
Baitwell pump, shown with seacock closed, is
located below the mid-berth. Please note that the
baitwell pump is mounted on its side. The
seacock lever must be horizontal to the bottom of
the hull to be in the closed position.
The hose on the lower port feeds raw water to the
washdown pump.
To operate the baitwell pump, locate the baitwell switch on the console and press the switch to the
forward position to turn on the pump. When the baitwell pump is operating, go to the baitwell tub, open
the baitwell lid and visually check to see if water is pumping into the tub through the aerator fitting. This
will ensure that the baitwell pump is working properly. The hose that goes from the baitwell pump to the
baitwell tub is routed behind the starboard aft wall of the mid berth.
To turn the baitwell pump off, press the baitwell switch to the aft position. You should always turn the
baitwell switch off at the helm if the pump is not going to be used soon.
36
The 45 gallon capacity baitwell tub is located aft of the helm seat. It comes equipped with an aerator
head, 2 overflow drains that allow circulation to keep bait alive, a plug for the drain and a baitwell light.
Baitwell Tub/Bait Station - 45 Gallon raw water
baitwell station with:
Clear lid
Bar soap holder
Knife and pliers holder
Grab rail
If you find it necessary to run the baitwell pump while you are underway, you may be forcing more water
than necessary up through the seacock. In this instance, adjust the seacock lever to a 45o angle so that
the seacock is only halfway open. The seacock lever may require additional adjustments to find a setting
that works best for you.
Even when the baitwell pump is turned off, if the seacock is open, the baitwell tub will continue to fill with
water while you are underway.
Note: Boats that are equipped with an optional generator and/or air conditioner will have
additional brass seacocks and a strainer installed in the aft (generator) and mid-ship (air
conditioner) bilges to filter seawater. These seacocks should be closed when the
generator and/or air conditioner are not in use.
Bilge Pumps
The boat is equipped with three (3) bilge pumps that are installed as standard equipment. Since there
are 3 bilge pumps, there are 3 bilge pump switches to choose from on the switch panel. The locations of
the three (3) bilge pumps and the labeling of the bilge pump switches are as follows:
•
•
Bilge 1 and Bilge 2 are both 1500 gph bilge pumps and they are located side by side in
the bilge. Bilge 1 is installed on the starboard side and Bilge 2 is installed on the port
side. If your vessel is equipped with the optional generator, the bilge pumps will be
installed just forward of the unit.
Fwd Bilge - This 1100 gph pump is located and accessible via the hinged panel under the
mattress in the mid berth.
There are 2 steps in properly checking the bilge pumps. First, turn the on bilge pump at the instrument
panel by pressing the applicable bilge pump switch to the on or forward position. When the bilge pump
switch is in the on position, the switch light should be illuminated. To check and see if the bilge pump is
operating, open the hatch over the applicable bilge pump and listen to hear the bilge pump running.
Second, turn the bilge pump off at the instrument panel and check the bilge pump float switch. Each
pump is equipped with an automatic float switch (white box) that is mounted next to the bilge pump. As
long as your boat is equipped with an operable battery, each pump will operate independently when water
is present in the area. Each float switch is equipped with two plastic knobs located on either side of the
switch. Turn either one of the knobs to raise the float to engage the bilge pump. If the pump comes on,

switch activates bilge pump 2, the alarm will sound. If the
alarm should sound, as a precaution, check the bilge area
immediately to determine if emergency action should be
taken. The toggle switch may be turned to the override
position (to the right) to deactivate the alarm.
Fish Boxes with Macerator Pump
Your boat is equipped with port and starboard fish boxes
with a total capacity of 125 gallons. The 6.5 macerator
pump drains both fish boxes and/or macerates any fish
particles. The pump is located in the bilge and is equipped
with an automatic float switch. As the fish boxes drain,
water and/or debris travel to the holding tank attached to
the pump and then to the fish box macerator pump which
pumps the water and/or debris overboard.
The fish box macerator pump operates on a 2-way rocker switch located on the switch panel labeled fish
box. To properly operate the fish box macerator pump, fill both fish boxes with water. Then move the fish
box switch on the switch panel to the forward position to operate the pump. The water and fish particles
will be pumped out of the tubs and will be routed through the macerator pump and then overboard via the
fish box thru hulls on each side of the boat. When you are finished emptying the fish boxes, place the fish
box switch in the aft position to turn off the fish box macerator pump.
To check the system for drainage, remove the white 90o elbow fitting that connects the hose to the
holding tank. The fitting is held in place with a rubber grommet therefore no hose clamps need to be
removed. After removing the fitting, feel around just inside the holding tank for the 2 round plastic buttons
(approx. ½” in diameter) and simply lift the 2 buttons to check the operation. If the float is working
properly, the pump will activate. On occasion, you may find excessive debris in the holding tank that is
causing a blockage. Just remove the debris through this same opening. When you are finished checking
the operation, reinsert the 90o elbow fitting back into the rubber grommet until is seats itself.

Washdown Pump and Raw Water Washdown Hose
The washdown pump, which is equipped with a pressure
switch, is located below the mid berth on the starboard
side. This pump is mounted on a seacock (ball valve) and
shares this same seacock with the baitwell pump.
To turn on the washdown pump, locate the washdown
switch on the instrument panel and press the switch to the
forward position. If you turn on the washdown pump switch
and you do not feel pressure, the seacock may not be
open. Verify that the seacock is open and depress the
switch again. When not in use, the washdown switch
should be left in the off (down or aft) position.
Note: Before operating the washdown pump, make sure that the seacock at the baitwell
pump is in the open position before turning on the pump. The seacock is wide open
when the seacock lever is in the vertical position. When the seacock lever is in the
horizontal position, the seacock is closed. The seacock should remain closed when the
baitwell or washdown pumps are not in use.
The raw water washdown hose is located in a compartment on the
starboard side of the transom door. When the washdown pump is
on, twist the nozzle on the end of the hose to turn the water on and
off and check to see if the washdown sprays. You can adjust the
pressure or stream of the spray by turning the nozzle clockwise for
a tighter stream or counterclockwise for more of a spray pattern.
The 25’ hose is long enough to reach both the bait station and the
transom sink.
After checking for water and before returning the washdown hose to the storage compartment, turn off the
washdown pump at the helm to release the water pressure in the hose. Twisting the hose clockwise
allows you to easily stow the hose away.
The round filter attached to the side of the washdown pump should be removed and cleaned often with
running water.
Fuel/Oil Systems
Fuel Tank
Standard Fuel Tank - The 320-gallon Fuel
Tank on your Pro-Line is constructed of heavy
gauge aluminum with internal baffling to
minimize sloshing. The Fuel Tank is located
under the deck and is secured between the
stringers and bulkheads.
Optional Fuel Tank - the optional Fuel Tank
upgrade, the fuel capacity of your boat was
increased to 425 gallons. When this option is
selected, in order to accommodate the larger
Fuel Tank, the tank extends into most of the
storage compartment located below the helm
and lounge seats. However, an additional
small storage box is installed at the base of the
bait station
DO NOT store any equipment in the Fuel Tank compartment under any
circumstances.

Regardless of the fuel tank option that you have selected, you should inspect the hose connections on a
regular basis. For access the fuel fill and fuel vent hoses:
•
Standard Fuel Tank
o For access to the hose connections at the fuel tank, open the cockpit storage hatch
located between the lounge and helm seats. Then, remove the round access pie that
is installed on the aft wall of the storage compartment.
o For access to the hose connections at the stainless steel fuel fill and fuel vent fittings,
remove the starboard wall of the cockpit storage compartment.
•
Optional Fuel Tank
o For access to the hose connections at the fuel tank, remove the bolts on the opening
located between the lounge and helm seats.
o For access to the hose connections at the stainless steel fuel fill and fuel vent fittings
remove the storage compartment that is installed below the bait station.
40
Fuel Fill and Vent
The fuel fill is a stainless steel fitting labeled “Gas” or “Fuel” and
is located approximately admidships on the starboard gunwale.
Twist the cap to open the fitting. The cap is connected to the
fitting by a chain or cable so that it will not fall into the water
and/or get lost. Be careful not to pump fuel into any other fitting
on the vessel.
Note: Never pump fuel into any fitting, opening or access on the boat unless it is labeled
“Gas” or “Fuel”.
The external fuel vent is located just below the fuel fill on the
outside of the hull, and the gas tank is vented overboard. While
you are filling the tank, fuel entering the tank pushes air in the
tank out through the fuel vent.
Fuel Sender & Fuel Pick Ups
To access the fuel sender and fuel pick up, lift the bilge hatch. At the forward edge of the hatch opening,
there is a rectangular panel that is held in place with 6 screws. When you remove the panel, you will see
the fuel sender and fuel pick ups.
The fuel sender is equipped with a float that moves up and down with the fuel level in the tank. The fuel
level information is sent to the fuel gauge and keeps you informed of the approximate fuel level in the
tank. If you feel that your fuel gauge is reading incorrectly, before considering changing the gauge, have
your Pro-Line dealer’s Service Department or another qualified service professional remove the fuel
sender and check to make sure that the float is able to move up and down freely.
Note: If you have selected the optional 425-gallon fuel tank, the fuel sender and fuel pick up will be
accessible via the large hatch located between the lounge and helm seats. Just remove the bolts for
easy access.
Fuel Water Separators
Depending on your selection of the various optional engine packages, your boat may be equipped with a
fuel water separator for each engine. However, some engines come equipped with a built in fuel water
separator. Please refer to the owner’s manual provided by the manufacturer of your engine package for
operational procedures and for information related to the care and maintenance of their product. When in
doubt, always defer to the engine manufacturer’s instructions and/or recommendations.
If your engine package requires the installation of fuel water separators, they will be mounted in the bilge
on the inside of the port and starboard stringers. There is one unit for each motor. The “spin on” filter
cartridges should be renewed every season at a minimum. Fuel tanks that are not kept full accumulate
water faster due to condensation. Therefore, the filter cartridges may need to be replaced more often
depending upon usage and conditions or if motors begin to run rough. When replacing the filter
cartridges for the fuel water separators, coat the rubber seal with a film of grease or oil to help prevent
sticking.
If water should somehow enter your fuel tank via condensation, your fuel source, etc., it will become
trapped in the fuel water separator before it is able to travel through the fuel system and to your engine.
Please refer to the owner’s manual provided by your engine manufacturer for proper procedures. Some
engines will not have a separate fuel water separator located in the bilge. Instead it will be located on the
engine itself. Check engine specs.
41
If you have selected the optional air conditioner system, a designated fuel water separator will also be
installed on the inside of the port stringer specifically for this optional installation.
Primer Bulbs
There is a primer bulb (if applicable) installed for each engine and it is used to prime the fuel pump in the
motor with fuel. Squeeze the primer bulb a few times until resistance is felt in order to prime. If no
resistance develops and the fuel pump will not prime, you may be out of fuel, the primer bulb may be
defective, or a leak may have developed allowing air into the system. The primer bulbs (if applicable) are
located with the rigging tubes where they exit the bilge and are easy to get to by standing on the dive
platform.
Note: Not all engines require primer bulbs. Refer to the engine manual for verification.
Oil Tank and Oil Fill
Depending on your selection of the various optional engine packages (i.e., oil injected outboard engines),
your boat may be equipped with remote oil tanks. If your engine package requires the installation of an
oil tank, it will be installed in the bilge on the starboard side. The oil fill will be installed at the transom on
the port side of the transom door.
Make sure that the oil tanks are well stocked with the type of engine oil that is recommended for your
engines. Refer to your engine manual. It is imperative that the oil supply remains clean and
uncontaminated by water or dirt. Check to make sure the oil lines are free from leaks, kinks and chafing.
Some motors use a primer bulb to initiate oil flow. Air may periodically enter the system and require
purging. Refer to your engine manual for specific instructions.
If your optional engine package requires the installation of remote oil tanks, please refer to the owner’s
manual provided by the engine manufacturer for operational procedures and for information related to the
care and maintenance of their product. When in doubt, always defer to the engine manufacturer’s
instructions and/or recommendations.
Fuel / Oil Leaks
The fuel tank is vented overboard and the vent should be inspected for obstructions regularly. Ensure all
of the fuel hoses remain properly secured and located according to NMMA standards. Inspect all hose
clamps and fittings to ensure they are double clamped where needed and that there are no fuel leaks in
any of the hoses. Also, inspect the oil system, if applicable, and ensure that the oil tank and hoses
remain properly connected and secured.
If you notice a fuel odor or see fuel in the bilge, there may be a leak somewhere in the fuel system.
Correct any fuel leaks before operating the vessel.
Caution: If at all possible, any fuel tank and or fuel system repair should be handled by
your dealer’s service department or by another qualified professional.

Hatches and Latches
Deck Hatches - The fiberglass deck hatches for the anchor locker, bilge, cockpit storage compartment
and the 2 fish boxes are made of fiberglass and can easily withstand the weight of passengers and gear;
just like the rest of the deck surfaces.
The twist latches that are installed on the fiberglass deck hatches are made of stainless steel. Just lift the
handle of the latch from the recessed area of the hatch, twist it and lift the hatch open. There is a small
red dot on one side of the latch. If the red dot is visible when the hatch is closed, that means that even
though the hatch may be closed, the latch is not secure. Make sure that all hatches are closed and
secured before you get underway. Lift the handle of the latch, turn it 180o so that the latch catches and
return the handle to the recessed area of the hatch. Once the hatch is secure, the red dot will no longer
be visible.
The hatches for the bilge, cockpit storage compartment and fish boxes are each equipped with gas
shocks. The gas shocks allow you to easily open and close the hatches. The gas shocks also hold the
47
hatches in place when they are open. The latch for the cockpit storage compartment is equipped with a
locking latch and comes with a set of 2 numbered keys. We recommend that you make note of the key
number and keep it in a safe place. In the event that you need to replace the keys, you will not need to
replace the entire lock assembly.

Cleats
Your boat is equipped with 6 pop-up cleats and 1 standard cleat. They are installed to provide areas to
permit you to tie off the boat at dockside, tie off to another boat that is anchored, secure bumpers/fenders,
and/or tie off the anchor (when dropped) to prevent the line from pulling on the windlass, etc. You should
never use the cleats for towing another boat or skier.
Bow Rail
The bow rail is constructed of stainless steel. The railing, which is through bolted to the gunwale, is
provided for safety. Never use the bow rail to tie off to anything heavier than a bumper/fender. Do not
use the bow rail for anchoring, or to tie off to the dock or another boat. Do not use the bow rail to tow
another boat or skier. Never stand on the bow rail or use it as leverage when pulling up an anchor, a fish
or any other objects. Do not use the bow rail to tie off and/or secure a large catch, etc.
Grab Rails
A set of 6 stainless steel grab rails has been installed to provide safe boarding and navigation on the
boat. They are located at the port transom ladder, around the baitwell station, the aft end of the lounge
seat, on the companionway door, at the cabin steps and on the forward wall of the head.
Bow Pulpit with Anchor Roller and Rope Locker Storage
We have installed an aluminum anchor roller with built in bow protector at the bow pulpit. The anchor line
is secured inside the anchor locker and is then routed through the Windlass and anchor roller. The
anchor (not included as standard equipment) is held on the line beneath the bow pulpit. This allows you

large dive platform for safe access to the dive ladder.
Cockpit / Deck Drains
There are four (4) cockpit/deck drains in the aft area of the
cockpit that allow excess water in the cockpit to drain
overboard via thru hulls on each side of the boat. To ensure
that there is no blockage in any of the hoses connected to the
drains, it is recommended that you occasionally run water
through each of the cockpit drains and visually inspect the
thru hulls to verify that water flows freely and that there is no
blockage. To trouble shoot, check the hoses for leaks and
make certain that all hose connections are secure.

Drain Plug
Before launching the boat, always make sure that the drain plug has been installed in the fitting on the
transom at the keel. If your boat is being transported, remove the drain plug once the boat is secured on
the trailer so that any excess water can be drained via the fitting. Never remove the drain plug when the
boat is sitting static in the water.
If you live in an area where it snows and you are storing your boat on a lift during the winter, make sure
that you remove the drain plug. When the snow melts, if the float switch for the bilge pump happens to
fail, it could flood the bilge and damage electrical components in the bilge.

See the Service and Care section of this manual for cleaning recommendations for the flooring products.
Electronics (Optional)
Based upon the availability from our vendors, this equipment changes from time to time. Therefore, we
request that you refer to the owner’s manual provided by the manufacturer of your electronics equipment
for operational procedures and for information related to the warranty and the care and maintenance of
their product. Refer to your owner’s package for additional information.
Galvanic Isolator
The galvanic Isolator is located behind the starboard
panel in the mid berth cabin and above the carbon
monoxide detector.
Stray, low voltage current flowing between the AC safety
ground and DC bonding system is a principal cause of
“galvanic” action. This type of stray current will normally
overload your zinc anodes as they try to protect your boat
from other near by boats and/or metal objects of the
marina. Sacrificial zincs corrode away as they protect
metal thru hulls, shafts and props from damaging
galvanic corrosion and electrolysis.
Installing the galvanic Isolator between the AC safety ground and DC bonding system interrupts the
galvanic circuit with other boats and the dock when your boat is plugged into a shore power system. It
also maintains an AC safety ground and solves the most common cause of corrosion. Corrosive action
on your zincs is significantly reduced while the integrity of the critical safety ground path is maintained.
This means a significant savings in boat haul out fees and zinc replacement costs.
The sacrificial zincs are located on the trim tabs and engines. The zincs should be checked periodically
and changed when needed.
55
Bonding System
All metal components that have water either going through them or touching them are bonded to the zinc
anodes on the transom of the boat. The zinc anodes should be checked periodically and changed when
needed.
56
Operation and Performance
Trim / Tilt
The power trim system allows the operator to raise and lower the motors throughout an infinite
number of settings between its upper and lower limits. There is a trim setting that will yield
maximum speed, stability or maneuverability for every throttle setting. Refer to your engine
manual for specific questions regarding the trim and tilt.
For most conditions, the best all-round performance is obtained when the bow of the boat is
slightly out of the water and all motors are trimmed to the same degree.
General trim down (or "in") characteristics are:
• Starting position for best acceleration to plane.
• Lowers the bow, which provides better stability and ride in rough water.
• Reduces boat speed and economy due to increased drag of hull and drive.
• More spray over bow.
General trim up (or "out") characteristics are:
• Raises the bow of the boat out of the water resulting in less hull in the water.
• Greater speed and economy for a given throttle setting.
• Greater maneuverability; provided prop does not ventilate during the maneuver.
• In excess, the reduced stability can lead to bouncing, porpoising, and propeller
ventilation.
In addition to providing ideal boat performance, the power-trim / tilt enables the motors to be
raised (tilted up) for trailering, beaching and launching. Avoid operating the trim switch if travel of
the motor is blocked or it has reached the limits of travel.
57
Propellers
If your Pro-Line was ordered with a factory installed engine, it will have a propeller that has been
performance tested to provide the best all-round performance for your engine / hull combination
at sea level. In some situations, it may be desirable to re-prop your Pro-Line to enhance the
desired performance needs for your area. For instance:
•
•
•
•
Decreasing the pitch will enhance acceleration and power at high loads.
Increasing the pitch will increase speed at light loads.
Decreasing the diameter will compensate for any loss of power at high altitudes.
Increasing the diameter results in higher efficiency at low speeds at the expense
of top end speed and acceleration.
Be sure not to over rev the engine when re-propping or engine damage could result. Operating
your engine with a damaged prop will decrease performance, increase fuel consumption, and
may introduce undesirable handling characteristics. The vibration caused by running a damaged
prop could cause costly damage to your lower drive unit.
Starting
Follow the information in your engine manual if it deviates from the following instructions.
Before Starting The Engines:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Ventilate all enclosed spaces.
Visually inspect the bilge for fuel and check for vapors.
Visually make sure that the propellers are clear of obstructions or swimmers.
Make sure that the engine cooling water intakes are submerged.
Lock the helm seat to face straight forward.
Attach the safety stop switch lanyard.
Starting The Engines:
Start the engine according to the instructions provided in your engine manual.
After Starting The Engines:
After your engine starts, make sure to observe a few basic rules to insure the engine is
functioning properly:
• Verify engine cooling water circulation.
• Check the temperature gauge for the first few minutes to make sure the engine is
warming properly and not overheating.
58
•
•
Check for fuel, oil and water leaks. If any leaks are found, shut down the engines
and make the necessary repairs before continuing on with your voyage.
Follow the break-in procedures as recommended by the engine manufacturer for
your engines.
Fueling
Certain precautions must be observed when fueling due to the explosive nature of gasoline.
Before Fueling:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Secure the boat to the dock with adequate moorings.
Turn off the engine and any equipment having spark-producing contacts.
Close doors and hatches so fumes do not enter boat.
Disembark all persons not necessary for the fueling operation.
Prohibit all smoking and open flames on board and nearby.
Have a fire extinguisher close by.
While Fueling:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Keep the nozzle in contact with the fuel fill opening to minimize the possibility of
sparks.
Do not pump fuel into any opening unless it is marked “Fuel” or “Gas”.
Do not leave the boat unattended.
Do not spill fuel.
Do not over fill. Filling a tank until fuel is vented is dangerous.
Allow room for expansion.
After Fueling:
•
•
•
•
Close the fuel fill opening.
Wipe up any spilled fuel and dispose of the rags on shore.
Open the doors and hatches to ventilate the boat before starting the engines.
Check for fumes in the bilge and continue to ventilate if fumes are present.
Loading
The performance of any boat is contingent upon the amount of load carried. Reduce the load to
permit safe operation in rough and adverse conditions. Heavy loads reduce the performance and
increase fuel consumption. The load positioning greatly affects the performance of your boat. If
excessive weight is placed too far aft, the boat may have difficulty getting on plane and may ride
rough. If the load is concentrated too far forward, the boat may “bow steer” or veer off to the side
when entering a large wave at an angle. There may also be a reduction in the top end speed.
The optimum load location is generally near the center of the boat.
When loading your Pro-Line, always:
• Maintain a balance both port to starboard and bow to stern.
• Keep heavy items as low as possible.
• When boarding, step (never jump) into the boat one passenger at a time.
• Pass gear from the dock to someone in the boat. Do not carry gear while
boarding.
• Never allow passengers to hang their feet over the side of the boat.
• Do not allow passengers to sit or stand on top of the stern or gunwales.
• Do not overload the boat to the point where water enters the cockpit scuppers.
59
Service and Care
To enjoy trouble free use of your Pro-Line, follow the recommended procedures and instructions relating
to the service and care of your boat. Failure to follow proper maintenance practices will result in shorter
life of your equipment and may void your warranty.
Much of the installed equipment on your Pro-Line is warranted separately. Follow the care instructions
found in your owner’s packet to keep these individual warranties in force.
Your engine manual contains service information relating to your particular engine installation. Follow the
engine manufacturer’s recommendations for trouble free service and to preserve your warranty rights.
Your new Pro-Line boat is your home away from home. Generally, you should maintain your boat with
the same care as you would maintain your home or automobile. Many of the same products used in
caring for your home and automobile can be used to maintain your new boat.
Fiberglass and Gelcoat
The gelcoated fiberglass on your Pro-Line provides a smooth, easy to clean and maintain surface.
Regular cleaning and waxing will preserve the finish on your boat for many years to come.
Use a mild detergent and plenty of fresh clean water to swab down the exposed gelcoat on your boat. Do
not use harsh cleaners containing ammonia, chlorine, or abrasives. Do not use acetone or any ketone
solvents. Stubborn stains may be removed with alcohol or kerosene provided they are washed off
immediately and completely with a mild detergent and water.
Wax all gelcoat surfaces a minimum of twice a year, more often if the boat is stored in the sun. If
neglected, the surface will take on a dull appearance that is not restorable by waxing. Hand buff with a
rubbing compound such as Dupont No. 7, or power buff with Mirror Glaze No. 1. Then follow up with a
good waxing.
Caution: When power buffing, use care not to leave swirl marks or "burn" the surface.
You may want to leave power buffing to a professional.
The gelcoat on your Pro-Line is approximately 25-mil thick. Minor scratches and deep stains that do not
penetrate the gelcoat can be lightly wet sanded with 600 grit sand paper, buffed and waxed to remove.
If a deep gouge to the surface occurs that goes through the gelcoat and into the fiberglass, it must be
repaired promptly to avoid further damage. Your dealer is best equipped to handle this repair and
achieve good bonding and color match. There are many different gelcoat repair kits on the market for this
use. However, results obtained may not be satisfactory. See your Pro-Line dealer for fiberglass damage
deeper than 1/16 inch.
Epoxy Barrier Coat & Bottom Paint
If your boat will be in the water continuously, we recommend sealing the bottom of the hull with a high
quality barrier coating. Unsealed gelcoat may form water blisters. Repair of water osmosis blister
damage is not covered under the limited warranty.
The phenomenon of osmotic blistering is known to occur in saltwater, brackish water and/or fresh water.
Any boat left in the water for any period of time is susceptible. Nearly all the marine bottom paint
60
manufacturers today offer coatings that help protect the hull against blistering. If required, contact your
Pro-Line dealer’s Service Department or another qualified service professional for further information.
We recommend that your boat be cleaned often to prevent unwanted marine growth on the hull and to
maintain ultimate high performance. The bottom of your boat must be kept clean. Any buildup of marine
life from water will create drag and affect the boat’s performance and efficiency. Never use brushes or
scouring pads on the bottom of your boat, as this can cause small scratches that will actually trap dirt.
Antifouling bottom paint is designed to dissolve slowly to prevent marine growth. Therefore, the hull
bottom should be repainted at the beginning of each boating season. Factors to take into consideration
when selecting a protective bottom paint are water temperature, pollution, salinity, current and organic
material in the water.
Important: Consult your Pro-Line dealer’s Service Department or another qualified
service professional for recommended bottom paints and local laws that may govern your
area. Many states regulate the chemical content of bottom paints to meet environmental
standards and regulations.
Blisters are unforeseen and unexplained phenomenon that are relatively undefined. There is no 100%
method of prevention, although barrier coating and bottom painting is the best known deterrent.
We recommend that a professional apply the epoxy barrier coat and bottom paint. The hull should be
sanded prior to applying the barrier coat and bottom paint. This is done so that the epoxy coat will
properly adhere to the hull, and when done correctly, will not void the hull warranty. Pro-Line Boats does
not recommend using an etching primer in lieu of sanding the bottom.
Bottom painting is an annual operation but may require more frequent applications if the bottom becomes
scratched, damaged, etc. We recommend strict adherence to the manufacturer's recommendations when
barrier coating and bottom painting your vessel. There is a small window of time in which the coats must
be applied in order to properly complete the application process; therefore, we recommend that a
qualified professional do this process.
While barrier coating and bottom painting are the best preventative to blisters caused by the environment,
this is in no way a guarantee that they will not occur.
Graphics
Your graphics may be cleaned with a mild dish cleaning soap and warm water or a good marine grade
cleaner that is recommended for cleaning gelcoat. Never use any harsh chemicals, abrasive cleaners or
any hard objects, as they will damage the graphics. Be sure to read the manufacturer’s directions
carefully before using any product on your graphics or gelcoat.
Gunwale Trim/Rubrail
The gunwale trim/rubrail that is installed at the juncture of the deck and hull is made of flexible, semi-rigid
and rigid PVC. It should be cleaned with the same products used to clean the gelcoat.
Washdown Pump
The round filter attached to the side of the pump should be removed and cleaned often with clear water.
61
Fuel Water Separators
If fuel water separators are installed on your boat, the “spin on” filter cartridges should be renewed every
season at a minimum. Fuel tanks that are not kept full accumulate water faster due to condensation.
Therefore, filter cartridges may need to be replaced more often depending upon usage and conditions or
if motors begin to run rough. When replacing the filters for the fuel water separators, coat the rubber seal
with a film of grease or oil to help prevent sticking.
Compass
During periods of long storage, it is recommended that you remove the compass from the boat and store
it in a location providing normal room temperature. At low temperatures, an air bubble may form on the
top of the dome. This will in no way affect the reading or accuracy. When restored to normal
temperature, the air bubble will disappear.
Clean the Lucite compass dome carefully with a moistened soft cloth to avoid scratching. In salt-water
operation, salt crystals from the spray may form on the dome. These crystals should be removed with a
moistened soft cloth. A dry cloth and/or harsh rubbing may scratch the compass dome. Any good grade
of paste wax can be applied to the dome to retain its luster and optical clarity.
Aluminum
Pay particular attention when cleaning the tubing directly beneath the hardtop. This area does not
receive the natural rinsing action of rainwater and is shielded from the sun. Therefore, it does not dry as
completely or quickly as the rest of the frame. The top of the frame is often overlooked when cleaning the
boat and should be hand washed and dried often. This area is likely to be the first place that staining or
pitting occurs.
Aluminum is corrosion resistant but not corrosion proof. The grain structure, when modified by welding
processes, has increased susceptibility to micro-corrosion (invisible to the unaided eye) and cracking.
Proper care will preserve the weld strength and beauty of your aluminum:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Always clean frequently with a mild non-abrasive soap and lots of fresh water. Most
glass cleaners work.
Always protect with a wax, especially around welds to guard against micro-corrosion,
cracking and rust spots.
Always remove rust and corrosion spots, as they appear, with an aluminum cleaner.
Thoroughly wash the aluminum with a soft towel or sponge using lots of soap and water.
Remove all dried salt crystals and other contaminates. Rinse completely with direct
water pressure.
Clean and rinse it well.
Wash it often enough to keep contaminates from forming or building up.
Avoid the use of bleach or chlorides to clean the aluminum and/or nearby components.
Chlorides can leach onto the aluminum when nearby.
Never clean with acids or bleaches.
Avoid abrasive cleaning products. NEVER use sandpaper, steel wool, brass wool, wire
bushes, polishing wheels, or rubbing or polishing compounds. These items will remove
anodizing and lead to pitting.
Never permit contact with iron, carbon steel, or other metals, which could cause rust or
corrosion.
Additional information from Taco Metals is included in your owner’s package.
62
Stainless Steel
Stainless steel is used for bow rails and deck fittings on your Pro-Line. Stainless steel is not completely
free from corrosion attack. It is NOT stain or rust proof. When used in contact with chloride salts, sulfides
or other rusting metals, stainless will discolor, rust or even corrode. The degree of surface oxidation is
directly affected by local atmosphere and saltwater concentrations. All metals are subject to corrosion in
some environments. The grain structure of stainless, when modified by welding processes, has
increased susceptibility to micro-corrosion (invisible to the unaided eye) and cracking.
Our most helpful recommendation is that you give your stainless steel hardware the same attention that
you would use to maintain other materials on your boat. Regular fresh-water washing with a mild
abrasive cleaner will keep your stainless bright and beautiful.
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Always clean stainless frequently with soap and water. Any cleaner safe for glass is
usually safe for stainless
Always remove rust spots as soon as possible with a stainless, brass, silver or chrome
cleaner. Irreversible pitting will develop under rust that remains on stainless for any
period of time.
Always use a cleaner, like a good car wax, for added beauty and protection.
Never use coarse abrasives like sandpaper or steel wool on stainless as these can cause
rusting.
Never clean with acids or bleaches.
Never leave stainless in contact with iron, steel or other metals, which cause
contamination leading to rust or corrosion.
Always protect with a wax, especially around welds to guard against micro-corrosion,
cracking and rust spots.
Additional information from Romac and G. G. Schmitt and Sons is included in your owner’s package.
Corrosion Protection
Spray all electrical connections with a good quality corrosion guard annually and whenever an electrical
connection is repaired or replaced.
If you moor your Pro-Line in salt water for extended periods, be sure to check the transom mounted anticorrosion anode often for operation. Check the electrical connections (green wire) on all metallic fittings
with an anode for conductivity with an ohmmeter. Make sure the anode surface is exposed and not
caked with corrosion and scale. Renew the anode if it is more than 50% eroded. Your motor and/or drive
unit have a sacrificial zinc anode to mitigate the effects of electrolysis which causes corrosion. Maintain
this anode in accordance with the maintenance schedule in your engine manual.
Cabin/Companionway and Transom Doors
To clean the acrylic door, rinse with fresh water to remove as much grime as possible. Use bare hands
with plenty of water so you can feel any grit and avoid grinding it into the surface as you dislodge it.
When all material that may scratch the surface is removed, use a soft clean cloth with a non-abrasive mild
detergent and fresh water. Rinse and blot dry with a clean dry chamois.
Grease and adhesives may be removed with kerosene, hexane or white gas (not gas you burn in your
boat, car, or lawnmower). Never use solvents such as acetone, silicone spray, benzene, carbon
tetrachloride, dry cleaning fluid, lacquer or paint thinner, or any chlorinated solvent on acrylic since they
may dissolve the material.
63
Tackle Box
Clean the tackle box trays and storage area using a soft cloth, warm water and a mild detergent.
Windows
The frames of the cabin hatches are made of cast or extruded aluminum. The lenses/windows of all 3
styles of windows (cabin hatches, cabin portholes and mid berth cabin window) are made of Lexan or
tough acrylic. Clean the frames and windows with a mild soap, lukewarm water and a soft cloth. Make
sure that there is no cross contamination on the cloth. Polish with a mild automobile polish.
Minor scratches on the lens/window can be removed or minimized by using a mild automobile polish such
as Johnson’s Paste Wax or Mirro Glaze Plastic Polish. Use silicone spray on any moving parts to keep
the parts free of salt build up.
Note: Do not clean Lexan or acrylic windows with any window cleaner designed
specifically for glass windows or any cleaner containing harsh chemicals such as
ammonia or alcohol as this will damage the lens/window.
If needed, replacement parts for the 3 window styles described above (cabin hatches, cabin portholes
and the mid berth cabin window) can be obtained from the vendor:

Windshield
The windshield is made of powder-coated aluminum, tempered glass and acrylic. The windshield
manufacturer recommends that you hose down the entire windshield assembly on a regular basis and
allow it to air dry. If additional leaning is required, please see the cleaning and care recommendations
instructions that follow for each type of component:
Powder-coated aluminum – The windshield manufacturer recommends the following Do’s and Don’ts in
caring for you powdered coated aluminum:
DO’s
• Use corrosion inhibitors on all fasteners inserted into the aluminum frame. Any break in
the “membrane” of the powder-coating must be properly sealed against moisture
intrusion. The windshield manufactured recommends LanoCote, which is commercially
available at West Marine.
• When washing the powder-coated surface, use fresh water and mild detergents, and
rinse thoroughly. Rinse within one hour of application.
• Use only soft cloths to wash or wipe the surface.
• Use cleaners containing naphtha hydrocarbons (free of aromatic compounds) to remove
greasy or oily substances, or to remove glue or adhesive tape residues. Quickly remove
them from the powder surface.
• Be sure that all water drain openings are free from debris. It is important to not allow
water to pool and lie continuously against the finish.
64
DON’Ts
• Do not drill or break through the powder-coating film unless absolutely necessary. As
much as possible, fastener holes should be drilled or punched before powder-coating.
• Do not use organic solvents containing esters, ketones, alcohols, aromatic compounds,
glycolic ether, or halogenated hydrocarbons.
• Do not use excessively alkaline or acidic cleaners.
• Do not use detergents at more than 77° F.
• Do not allow contact with teak cleaners.
• Do not allow wet cushions or covers to be in constant contact with the powder-coat.
• Do not shrink-wrap or tightly bind painted or powder-coated surfaces with plastic
wrappings.
• Do not use abrasives or abrasive cleaners.
Accelerated life tests have shown that powder-coat materials are particularly susceptible to the following
products and they should not be used on the powder-coated surfaces:
Sodium Hydroxide
Ammonia
Metyl-Ethyl-Ketone (MEK)
Hydrochloric acid
Xylene
Sulfuric acid
Tempered glass – Most of the windshield sections are made of tempered glass (i.e., the windshield vent
assembly, the two front windshield panels and the two aft panels. Each of these panels will have a very
small, discreet label that states that they are made of tempered glass (i.e., FLT Glass Tempered). The
two curved panels are made of acrylic, not tempered glass and should not be treated in the same
manner.
To clean the tempered glass panels use commercially available glass cleaners or a mixture of fresh water
and vinegar. Do not use abrasives, harsh chemicals or metal scrapers. Regular cleaning will help assure
clarity of the glass for safe boating.
Acrylic – The two curved sections are made of acrylic. They DO NOT have a tempered label affixed to
them. The windshield manufacturer recommends that you hose down the entire windshield assembly on
a regular basis. If any grit or grime is present, avoid grinding it into the surface as you carefully dislodge
it. Allow the acrylic panels to air dry.
If further leaning is required, use a very soft cotton cloth and clean with a mixture of warm water and mild
dish washing soap such as Ivory or Dawn. Make certain that there is no cross contamination on the
cotton cloth. Then, allow the acrylic panels to air dry.
Grease and adhesives may be removed with kerosene, hexane or white gas (not gas you
burn in your boat, car, or lawnmower). Never use solvents such as acetone, silicone
spray, benzene, carbon tetrachloride, dry cleaning fluid, lacquer or paint thinner, or any
chlorinated solvent on acrylic since they may dissolve the material.
Curtain Package and Windscreen
Canvas
One of the best ways to keep Sunbrella brand fabrics looking good and to delay the need for deep or
vigorous cleanings is to hose fabrics off on a monthly basis with clear water. This practice will help
prevent dirt from becoming deeply imbedded in the fabric and eliminate the need for more frequent
vigorous cleanings. In most environments, a thorough cleaning will be needed every two to three years.
When it's time for a thorough cleaning, Sunbrella fabrics can be cleaned while still installed on your boat.
It is important to observe the following:
65
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Brush off loose dirt.
Hose down.
Prepare a cleaning mixture of water and mild soap (Ivory Snow, Dreft or Woolite - no
detergents). Water should be cold to lukewarm. Never more than 100 degrees.
Use a soft bristle brush to clean.
Allow soap to soak in.
Rinse thoroughly.
Air dry. Never apply heat to Sunbrella fabrics.
If stubborn stains persist, you can use a diluted chlorine bleach/soap mixture for spot cleaning of mildew,
roof run-off or other similar stains. Prepare a special cleaning mixture:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Four ounces (half cup) of chlorine bleach.
Two ounces (one-fourth cup) of mild soap.
One gallon of water.
Clean with soft bristle brush.
Allow mixture to soak for up to 20 minutes.
Rinse thoroughly.
Air dry.
Repeat if necessary.
Re-treating the Fabric - Sunbrella fabrics are treated with a fluorocarbon finish to enhance water
repellency. This finish is designed to last for several years, but must be replenished after a thorough
cleaning. Based on test results, Glen Raven recommends 303 High Tech Fabric Guard™ as the
preferred re-treatment product for Sunbrella fabrics. Fabrics should be retreated after thorough cleaning
or after five years of use. Check with your local Sunbrella dealer or distributor for additional information.
For more information, visit the Sunbrella website at www.sunbrella.com for specific recommendations.
Isinglass (Windscreen Material)
Maintenance means "rinsing" with cold water and trying not to rub the dirt into the Isinglass. Never "Dry"
dust the Isinglass panels. Any rubbing acts like sandpaper to plastic so keep rubbing to a minimum.
Always use lots of cold water and a very very soft cloth when rubbing is required. Do not use paper
towels or Terri-cloth towels. Try not to use any cleaning solutions, as most will cause yellowing and
cracking.
When you have to store the panels of your Windscreen and Curtain Package, always “roll up” the material
to prevent creases. Do not fold the Isinglass as this will permanently damage the Isinglass material. Do
not roll up the panels when wet, as the material will turn white or fog up. Dry the panels off first using a
very very soft cloth before rolling them up. A few hours in the sun will get rid of the whiteness or
fogginess in most cases.
Vinyl
Interior Vinyl - Cabin Headliner and Cabin Bolsters
Clean periodically to maintain the appearance of the vinyl and to prevent the build-up of dirt and
contaminants. Any stain, spill or soiling should be cleaned promptly to prevent the possibility of
permanent staining. When cleaning, always scrub gently using a soft cloth or nylon bristle brush.
Caution: Powered abrasives, abrasive cleaners and steel wool will damage vinyl, as do
strong solvents, lacquer solutions and inks. Lotions, suntan oil, waxes and polishes, etc.,
contain oils and dyes that can cause stiffening and staining of the vinyl. Never use
steam, heat guns or hair dryers.
66
For additional information regarding the care and maintenance of this product, please refer to the
Morbern brochure provided in your owner’s package for recommended methods to clean specific types of
stains.
Exterior Vinyl – Upholstered Seats and Cockpit Bolsters
Vinyl requires periodic cleaning to maintain its neat appearance and to prevent the build-up of dirt and
contaminants that may permanently stain and reduce the life of the vinyl if they are not removed. The
frequency of cleaning depends on the amount of use and on environmental conditions to which the vinyl
is subjected. The procedures used for cleaning are dependent upon the end use circumstances.
For normal cleaning, most stains can be cleaned using warm soapy water and a clear water rinse.
Moderate scrubbing with a medium bristle brush will help to loosen soiling material from the depressions
of embossed surfaces. For stubborn stains, use either Fantastic or Mr. Clean, which are commercially
available mild detergents, in accordance with manufacturers instructions.
For additional information regarding the care and maintenance of this product, please refer to the
Morbern brochure provided in your owner’s package for recommended methods to clean specific types of
stains.
Cloth
Cabin Cushions, Pillows and Curtains
The manufacturer of the materials used in making the cabin cushions, pillows and curtains recommends
the following cleaning procedures:
Spot clean only with water based shampoo or foam upholstery cleaner. Pretest a small, inconspicuous
area before proceeding. Do not over wet. Do not use solvents to spot clean. Pile fabrics may require
brushing with a non-metallic, stiff bristle brush to restore appearance.
Note: Water extraction or steam cleaning is not a recommended cleaning method.
Cushion covers should not be removed and laundered. To prevent overall soiling,
frequent vacuuming or light brushing with a non-metallic, stiff bristle brush to remove dust
and grime is recommended. When cleaning a spill, blot immediately to remove spilled
material. Clean spot stains from the outside to the middle of the affected area to prevent
circling.
Use a professional furniture cleaning service when an overall soiled condition has been reached.
For additional information regarding the care and maintenance of this product, please refer to the
Morbern brochure provided in your owner’s package for recommended methods to clean specific types of
stains.
Shower Curtain
The shower curtain is machine washable in a mild detergent using the delicate setting and should be line
dried. If needed, the shower curtain may be dried in the dryer on the lowest possible setting.
Countertops - From Staron / Samsung
Routine Cleaning of Countertops and Sinks - Use soap and water or an ammonia-based cleanser (such
as glass cleanser). Wipe away water stains with a damp cloth and sponge dry with a towel.
67
Removing Difficult Stains – Use an abrasive cleanser and a green Scotch-Brite® pad. Rub in a circular
motion.
Disinfecting Surfaces and Sinks - Occasionally wipe sinks and bowls with diluted household bleach (one
to one bleach and water solution) to disinfect.
Removing Cuts and Scratches – Sand with 400 grit (30 micron) sandpaper; restore finish with a
nonabrasive cleanser and a white Scotch-Brite® pad. Any sanding and polishing should be done in a
circular motion.
Preventing Damage – In most cases, Staron can be easily repaired. However, follow these guidelines to
prevent any permanent damage.
•
•
Heat damage - Even though Staron has an excellent heat resistant property compared
with other ordinary countertops, placing hot pans, as well as some heat-generating
appliances such as frying pans or crock-pots can damage a Staron surface. Always use
a hot pad or a trivet with rubber feet to protect Staron. Avoid long-term exposure of
Staron to temperatures over 170˚ F (80˚ C).
Other Damage - Avoid exposing Staron to strong chemicals such as paint removers and
oven cleaners. Surfaces exposed to these chemicals should be promptly flushed with
water. Contact over a long period of time will cause spots and require extensive sanding.
Any sanding and polishing should be done in a circular motion.
o Do not cut directly on a Staron surface. Use a cutting board.
o Run cold water when pouring boiling water into sinks.
o Remove nail polish with a non-acetone based nail polish remover and
flush with water.
Formica
Clean any Formica surfaces with warm soapy water and/or a good quality Formica cleaner available
commercially at Home Depot, Lowes, etc. Maintain it just as you would care for any Formica counter.
Cabin Interior – Wood Upgrade
If you have selected any of the wood upgrades (i.e., teak and holly flooring, wood upgrade cabin interior,
etc.), clean these surfaces with products that are specifically designed for wood, such as, Liquid Gold,
Old English Furniture Polish, Pledge, Endust, etc. Never use cleaning products such as Fantastic,
Windex, etc. as they will harm the wood finish.
Appliances
Refrigerator
Do not use abrasive cleaning agents or hard objects during cleaning as these can damage the
refrigerator. Never use hard or pointed tools to remove ice or to loosen objects, which have frozen in
place. As soon as the refrigerator becomes dirty, clean it with a damp cloth. Wipe the refrigerator with a
dry cloth after cleaning. Make sure that no water drips into or through the sealing while cleaning as this
can damage the electronics.
Microwave
Keep the inside of the oven clean. When spilled liquids or food splatters adhere to the oven walls, wipe
the walls clean with a damp cloth. Mild detergent may be used if the oven gets very dirty. Avoid the use
68
of spray and other harsh cleaners as they may stain, streak or dull the door surface. The outside
surfaces should be cleaned with a damp cloth. To prevent damage to the operating parts inside the oven,
water should not be allowed to seep into the ventilation openings. The glass tray may be cleaned with
warm sudsy water or in a dishwasher.
Electric Stove
Use a good quality stove top cleaner (commercially available at most grocery stores), glass cleaner or a
mixture of fresh water and vinegar to clean the ceramic stove.
Flooring
Laminated Wood Grain Flooring
Pick up loose dirt with a vacuum cleaner or Dust Buster and wipe up spilled materials with a clean damp
cloth. For normal cleaning, use only a mild dishwashing soap (i.e., Dawn, Ivory, etc.), warm water and a
soft cloth. For stubborn stains, please refer to the material in your Owner’s Package that was provided by
the manufacturer of the laminated flooring.
Teak and Holly
The optional Teak and Holly flooring is covered with a lacquer finish. Pick up loose dirt with a vacuum
cleaner or Dust Buster and wipe up spilled materials with a clean damp cloth. For stubborn stains, you
may use household products such as Old English Furniture Polish, Liquid Gold, Pledge, Endust, etc.
These products are all commercially available at most grocery stores, Home Depot, Lowes, etc.
Carpet (AquaMat)
For regular care and cleaning, vacuum or hose off the carpet to prevent soil from becoming embedded
and to maintain the carpet color and appearance. If the carpet becomes soiled, use a standard carpet
cleaner. Dry the carpet face up or by hanging.
When storing the carpet, always roll with the carpet facing out, never folded. Do not roll up the carpet
while it is still wet.
Winterizing and Storage
Your new Pro-Line was winterized before it left the factory. If you launch the boat prior to storing it for the
winter, please complete and/or comply with the following check list in order to ensure an easy “fitting out”
in the spring:
Pre-Storage Check List:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Remove drain plugs, keeping the bow high to drain any water accumulation.
Run a pint of RV antifreeze through the bilge pump.
Drain all water systems, including the head, and pump an approved antifreeze through all
pumps, valves, drains and lines.
Fill fuel tank (3/4 – 7/8 full) and add a stabilizer/conditioner such as “STA-BIL” to the
gasoline.
Prepare engine in accordance with the engine manufacturer’s recommendations found in
your engine manual.
Treat metal parts with a rust inhibiter.
To prevent mold and mildew, use an absorbing product such as DampRid according to
the manufacturer’s directions. An alternative and inexpensive option is to fill egg cartons
with charcoal briquettes that have not been pre-treated with lighter fluid.

•
•
Remove batteries and protect them from freezing. Trickle charge overnight once a
month.
Place under cover. If the boat is stored on a trailer, loosen tie-down straps and place
blocks beneath axles to relieve the load on the tires.
For inboard/outboard engines only, to protect your boat during transport, the following procedures were
affected at the factory prior to shipping and will need to be rectified prior to launch:
•
•
•
•
•
Drain plugs on engine block removed.
Petcocks on engine removed.
Large hose on re-circulating pump removed.
Power steering cooler hose removed.
All other water hoses disconnected (left in place with hose clamps tightened to prevent
their loss).
Fitting Out After Storage
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Check entire fuel system for loose fittings, leaks and damage.
Clean battery terminals; install battery(s), and coat terminals with a deoxidizing agent.
Check all thru hull fittings and hoses for obstructions, water tightness and condition.
Test all lights for proper operation.
Check wiring, terminal blocks and plugs for loose connections and corrosion.
Verify switch and equipment operation.
Check line condition. Inspect anchor and rope.
Clean out any debris from bilge and cockpit.
Flush water systems.
Install hull drain plug.
Verify operation of equipment before leaving dock.
Resealing
In the heat and sun, silicone and sealant can degrade over time. We recommend that you reseal around
everything that comes in contact with the deck or hull with a high quality silicone such as 3M 5200 sealant
annually. This includes but is not limited to the following:
Hatches on the top cap
Port lights
Mid berth cabin window
Cleats
Bow rail stanchions
Hard top stanchions and supports
Grab rails
Rubrail
Access and other hatches
Windlass
Windshield
Bow and transom eyes
Clam shell at the anchor locker
Thru hull fittings
Dive ladder
Outriggers
Motor mounts
Cabin door

Appendix
Helpful Checklists
Print and use these checklists, and do not operate your boat without doing the following:
Each Time You Go On A Boat Trip
Make sure you know where CO exhaust outlets are located on your vessel.
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 outlets when the engines and generator are
started.
Listen for any change in exhaust sound that could indicate an exhaust component failure.
Test the operation of each CO alarm by pressing the test button.
Once A Month
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 leaks, or corroded or cracked fittings.
Inspect rubber exhaust hoses for burned, cracked or deteriorated sections. All rubber
hoses should be pliable and free of kinks.
Clean the bilge and all bilge components with a mixture of bleach and water. Then,
follow up by misting the bilge and components with WD-40. This includes but is not
limited to the hoses, seacocks, pumps, connections, clamps, air conditioner pumps,
generator, etc.
Once A Year
Have a qualified marine technician:
•
•
Replace exhaust hoses if cracking, charring or deterioration is found.
Ensure that your engines, generator and air conditioner 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 metallic exhaust components for cracking, rusting, leaking or loosening. Be
sure to check the cylinder head, 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).
Spray CRC on all of the connections behind the console.
