ROUTINE MAINTENANCE
To ensure long service life and to maintain the tender in a safe and reliable condition
please follow these routine maintenance instructions. Williams cannot accept any
responsibility for damage or injury resulting from incorrect maintenance or improper
adjustment carried out by the owner.
OWNERS
HANDBOOK
1. Re-pack shaft seal approximately every 10 hours of operation with Quicksilver marine 2-4-C
grease, or equivalent high temperature, high speed bearing grease. As a guide use two pumps of
the grease gun supplied with the tender. Take care not to over-pressure seals and wipe away
excess grease.
2. Check engine oil level.
3. Check coolant level.
4. Flush open loop cooling system.
5. Apply a good quality marine grease containing Teflon (e.g. Quicksilver 101) to all control cables
both under the helm and at the pump.
6. Check bilges for water ingress, oil or fuel contamination.
7. Lightly grease the extending running light pole using white grease or similar.
8. Check condition of the 2 pump anodes.
9. Loss of tube pressure over 24 hours is not unusual. Temperature and atmospheric pressure will
affect tube pressures. Check pressures regularly.
WINTER STORAGE
Refer to the Williams service manual for winterisation procedures.

FUELLING
OPERATING YOUR TENDER
As part of its pre-delivery inspection your new Turbojet has been run and
drained of fuel. When refuelling use only premium unleaded gasoline 92-98 RON.
This boat uses a water-jet propulsion system and has unique characteristics in steering. The throttle
produces thrust from the jet pump, the directional control is provided by opening the throttle and
turning the wheel in the direction of your turn. High thrust will turn the boat sharply; low thrust will
produce less turning force. There is no rudder, so while underway there is no steering without thrust.
l Ensure ignition is in OFF position.
l Remove seat cushion to expose filler cap. A key is provided to assist in filler cap removal.
After running tender at high speeds it is important to allow engine to idle for a minimum of one minute
before switching off to allow turbo to cool.
l Re-fuel in a ventilated area.
l Do not overfill the tank; be careful not to spill fuel.
l Tighten fuel cap securely after re-fuelling.
l Open engine hatch and inspect bilges after re-fuelling.
l The filler cap has an integral breather.
Do NOT hose around the fuel filler area as water may enter the fuel tank.
If weed or debris gets caught in the jet unit during use, cavitation can occur, causing a decrease in
forward thrust. If this condition is allowed to continue the engine may overheat resulting in serious
damage. If there is any sign of debris, weeds etc. blocking the jet, remove the boat from the water.
Switch off battery isolator and remove all debris from around the jet unit. In case of difficulty consult
your Williams approved dealer.
MOORING
BEFORE USE
To ensure maximum performance from your Turbojet the tubes should be evenly inflated to a pressure
of 2.9psi (0.2bar). Failure to observe this will compromise the sea-keeping ability and water tight
integrity of the boat. Inflation valves are fitted with quarter-turn locks to enable rapid deflation.
l Set valves to shut and inflate tubes evenly to 2.9psi (0.2bar).
l Check bilge for fuel or water contamination.
l Tighten footwell drain plugs.
l Check engine cover latches are secure.
STARTING YOUR TURBOJET
Ensure boat is in a depth of at least 0.5m/2ft of water.
Do not leave the Turbojet moored for extended periods as this may result in an accumulation
of marine growth and a loss of performance.
BEACHING
DO NOT operate in less than 0.5m/2ft of water as debris may enter the jet unit. DO NOT
drive turbojet onto beach. Stop engine before beaching as damage to pump/engine cooling
may occur.
After beaching move boat into deeper water and tilt from side to side several times to remove
sand from intake area – failure to do so could cause damage to jet unit.
TRIM
Do not overload the boat.
At all speeds be aware of trim and keep weight evenly distributed.
1. Turn on battery isolator.
GENERAL
2. Run bilge blower for one minute.
Operate the boat with due care and at a speed appropriate to the sea conditions.
Be aware of local laws and restrictions.
Always carry out a visual check of the boat and its components prior to use.
3. Secure any loose ropes that could get sucked into jet unit.
4. Ensure shift lever is in central position.
5. Connect safety lanyard to switch.
ALWAYS attach yourself to the safety lanyard when engine is running.
6. Turn ignition key until engine starts.
7. Engine RPM will automatically be limited until warm.
Adhere to the maintenance/service schedule as detailed in the service manual.
WARNING LIGHTS
1. EXHAUST TEMPERATURE
This lamp will illuminate if the open loop coolant supply is restricted.
After restarting a hot engine it is normal for the lamp to stay
on for up to 30 seconds. If the lamp stays on for longer than 30
seconds or comes on when engine is above idle, STOP the engine
and check for restriction in coolant system (debris in pump/pipes).

2. ECU MALFUNCTION

This lamp will illuminate if there is a fault with the engine
management system. If this occurs STOP the engine and
refer to Williams approved dealer.

BOAT SYSTEM ARRANGEMENT
AFTER USE:
FLUSHING PROCEDURE
1
To prolong the engine life of your Turbojet it is very important to flush engine of salt
water after use and prior to storage. Failure to carry out flushing will significantly
reduce the life of engine components. DO NOT operate throttle out of water.
2
3
1. Remove the boat from the water everyday and wash entire boat/jet pump with fresh water.
2. Connect a fresh water hose fitted with the female connector supplied with the tender to the
coupling on the transom.
3. Start engine and immediately turn on water supply.
4. Run engine at idle for approximately 1 minute to completely flush the open loop cooling system.
4
5. Turn off water supply.
6. Allow the engine to run for no longer than 10 seconds for all water to exit from the cooling system,
then turn off the engine. Remove hose connector from transom coupling.

7. Check bilge of boat and dry any residual water. Remove footwell drain plugs.

OIL LEVEL CHECK
The Weber engine is a ‘dry sump’ type engine, with a separate oil
tank. When the engine is started oil is evacuated from the sump.
After the engine has run, oil will slowly return from the tank to the
sump. The engine must be run for at least 20 seconds
before a level is indicated on the dip-stick.
When checking oil level out of the water, i.e. on a level bathing
platform or trailer the boat must be run for no more than 20
seconds without coolant water. The oil level should be between
MIN and MAX on the dipstick. Do not screw in cap to check level.
Use the correct grade of oil. Do not overfill – oil will expand to top
mark when hot.
