Before mounting or operating the outboard
motor, read this entire manual. Reading it
should give you an understanding of the
motor and its operation.
Before operating the boat, read any owner’s or operator’s manuals supplied with it
and all labels. Be sure you understand
each item before operating.
Do not overpower the boat with this outboard motor. Overpowering the boat could
result in loss of control. The rated power of
●
●
●
the outboard should be equal to or less
than the rated horsepower capacity of the
boat. If the rated horsepower capacity of
the boat is unknown, consult the dealer or
boat manufacturer.
Do not modify the outboard. Modifications
could make the motor unfit or unsafe to
use.
Never operate after drinking alcohol or taking drugs. About 50% of all boating fatalities involve intoxication.
Have an approved personal flotation device (PFD) on board for every occupant. It
is a good idea to wear a PFD whenever
boating. At a minimum, children and nonswimmers should always wear PFDs, and
everyone should wear PFDs when there
are potentially hazardous boating conditions.
Gasoline is highly flammable, and its vapors are flammable and explosive. Handle
and store gasoline carefully. Make sure
there are no gas fumes or leaking fuel before starting the engine.
This product emits exhaust gases which
contain carbon monoxide, a colorless,
odorless gas which may cause brain damage or death when inhaled. Symptoms include nausea, dizziness, and drowsiness.
Keep cockpit and cabin areas well ventilated. Avoid blocking exhaust outlets.
Check throttle, shift, and steering for proper operation before starting the engine.
Attach the engine stop switch lanyard cord
to a secure place on your clothing, or your
arm or leg while operating. If you accidentally leave the helm, the cord will pull from
the switch, stopping the engine.
Know the marine laws and regulations
where you will be boating—and obey
them. For basic boating rules, see “Rules

of the road” on page 5.
● Stay informed about the weather. Check
weather forecasts before boating. Avoid
boating in hazardous weather.
● Tell someone where you are going: leave
a Float Plan with a responsible person. Be
sure to cancel the Float Plan when you return.
● Use common sense and good judgment
when boating. Know your abilities, and be
sure you understand how your boat handles under the different boating conditions
you may encounter. Operate within your
limits, and the limits of your boat. Always
operate at safe speeds, and keep a careful
watch for obstacles and other traffic.
● Always watch carefully for swimmers during the engine operation.
● Stay away from swimming areas.
● When a swimmer is in the water near you
shift into neutral and shut off the engine.

Basic boating rules (Rules of
the road)
Just as there are rules which apply when you
are driving on streets and high ways, there
are waterway rules which apply when you
are driving your boat. These rules are used
internationally, and are also enforced by the
United States Coast Guard and local agencies. You should be aware of these rules,
5
Whenever two vessels on the water meet
one another, one vessel has the right-ofway; it is called the “stand-on” vessel. The
vessel which does not have the right-of-way
is called the “give-way” or “burdened” vessel.
These rules determine which vessel has the
right-of-way, and what each vessel should
do.
Stand-on vessel
The vessel with the right-of-way has the duty
to continue its course and speed, except to
avoid an immediate collision. When you
maintain your direction and speed, the other
vessel will be able to determine how best to
avoid you.
Give-way vessel
The vessel which does not have the right-ofway has the duty to take positive and timely
action to stay out of the way of the Stand-On
vessel. Normally, you should not cross in
front of the vessel with the right-of-way. You
should slow down or change directions briefly and pass behind the other vessel. You
should always move in such a way that the
operator of the other vessel can see what
you are doing.
✩✪✰✬✤ ✩ General information
“The general prudential rule”
This rule is called Rule 2 in the International
Rules and says,
“In obeying and construing these rules due
regard shall be had to all dangers of navigation and collision, and to any special circumstances, which may render a departure from
the above rules necessary in order to avoid
immediate danger.”
In other words, follow the standard rules except when a collision will occur unless both
vessels try to avoid each other. If that is the
case, both vessels become “Give-Way” vessels.
EMU25520
Rules when encountering vessels
There are three main situations which you
may encounter with other vessels which
could lead to a collision unless the Steering
Rules are followed:
Meeting: (you are approaching another vessel head-on)
Crossing: (you are traveling across the other vessel’s path)
Overtaking: (you are passing or being
passed by another vessel)
In the following illustration, your boat is in the
center. You should give the right-of-way to
any vessels shown in white area (you are the
Give-Way vessel). Any vessels in the shaded area must yield to you (they are the GiveWay vessels). Both you and the meeting
vessel must alter course to avoid each other.
Meeting
If you are meeting another power vessel
head on, and are close enough to run the risk
of collision, neither of you has the right-ofway! Both of you should alter course to avoid
an accident. You should keep the other vessel on your port (left) side. This rule doesn’t
apply if both of you will clear one another if
you continue on your set course and speed.
Crossing
When two power driven vessels are crossing
each other’s path close enough to run the
risk of collision, the vessel which has the other on the starboard (right) side must keep out
of the way of the other. If the other vessel is
on your right, you must keep out of its way;
you are the Give-Way vessel. If the other
vessel is on your port (left) side, remember
that you should maintain course and direction, provided the other vessel gives you the
right-of-way as it should.
6
✩✪✰✬✤ ✪ General information
Overtaking
If you are passing another vessel, you are
the “Give-Way” vessel. This means that the
other vessel is expected to maintain its
course and speed. You must stay out of its
way until you are clear of it. Likewise, if another vessel is passing you, you should
maintain your speed and direction so that the
other vessel can steer itself around you.
EMU25530
Other special situations
There are three other rules you should be
aware of when driving your boat around other vessels.
Narrow channels and bends
When navigating in narrow channels, you
should keep to the right when it is safe and
practical to do so. If the operator of a powerdriven vessel is preparing to go around a
bend that may obstruct the view of other water vessels, the operator should sound a prolonged blast on the whistle (4 to 6 seconds).
If another vessel is around the bend, it too
should sound the whistle. Even if no reply is
heard, however, the vessel should still proceed around the bend with caution. If you
navigate such waters with your boat, you will
need to carry a portable air horn, available
from local marine supply stores.
Fishing vessel right-of-way
All vessels which are fishing with nets, lines
7
or trawls are considered to be “fishing vessels” under the International Rules. Vessels
with trolling lines are not considered fishing
vessels. Fishing vessels have the right-ofway regardless of position. Fishing vessels
cannot, however, impede the passage of
other vessels in narrow channels.
Sailing vessel right-of-way
Sailing vessels should normally be given the
right-of-way. The exceptions to this are:
1. When the sailing vessel is overtaking
the power-driven vessel, the power-driven vessel has the right-of-way.
2. Sailing vessels should keep clear of any
fishing vessel.
3. In a narrow channel, a sailing vessel
should not hamper the safe passage of
a power-driven vessel which can navigate only in such a channel.
Reading buoys and other markers
The waters of the United states are marked
for safe navigation by the lateral system of
buoyage. Simply put, buoys and markers
have an arrangement of shapes, colors,
numbers and lights to show which side of the
buoy a boater should pass on when navigating in a particular direction. The markings on
these buoys are oriented from the perspective of being entered from seaward (the boater is going towards the port). This means that
red buoys are passed on the starboard
(right) side when proceeding from open water into port, and black buoys are to port (left)
side. When navigating out of port, your position with respect to the buoys should be reversed; red buoys should be to port and
black buoys to starboard.
Many bodies of water used by boaters are
entirely within the boundaries of a particular
state. The Uniform State Waterway Marking
System has been devised for these waters.
✩✪✰✬✤ ✫ General information
This system uses buoys and signs with distinctive shapes and colors to show regulatory or advisory information. These markers
are white with black letters and orange
boarders. They signify speed zones, restricted areas, danger areas, and general information.
Remember, markings may vary by geographic location. Always consult local boating authorities before driving your boat in
unfamiliar waters.

EMU25741
Propeller selection
The performance of your outboard motor will
be critically affected by your choice of propeller, as an incorrect choice could adversely
affect performance and could also seriously
damage the motor. Engine speed depends
on the propeller size and boat load. If engine
speed is too high or too low for good engine
performance, this will have an adverse effect
on the engine.
Yamaha outboard motors are fitted with propellers chosen to perform well over a range
of applications, but there may be uses where
a propeller with a different pitch would be
more appropriate. For a greater operating
load, a smaller-pitch propeller is more suitable as it enables the correct engine speed
to be maintained. Conversely, a larger-pitch
propeller is more suitable for a smaller operating load.
Yamaha dealers stock a range of propellers,
and can advise you and install a propeller on
your outboard that is best suited to your application.

WARNING
Improper mounting of the outboard motor could result in hazardous conditions
such as poor handling, loss of control, or

● For permanently mounted models, your
dealer or other person experienced in
proper rigging should mount the motor.
If you are mounting the motor yourself,
you should be trained by an experienced person.
● For portable models, your dealer or other person experienced in proper outboard motor mounting should show
you how to mount your motor.
Mount the outboard motor on the center line
(keel line) of the boat, and ensure that the
boat itself is well balanced. Otherwise the
boat will be hard to steer. For boats without
a keel or which are asymmetrical, consult
your dealer.

Ring Free Fuel Additive
Gasoline is a precise blend of many different
substances, each chosen to give certain
characteristics. Gasoline blends have been
changing in recent years in response to concerns about pollution and resulting emissions regulations. One of the most obvious
changes has been the elimination of lead
from most fuels.
As gasoline has changed, the amount of additives such as aromatics and oxygenates
has increased. These additives are important for the engines in passenger cars, but
they can have detrimental effects in marine
engines, because of increased deposits in
the combustion chamber. When enough deposits collect, piston rings begin sticking.
Performance drops and engine wear increases dramatically.
While many additives available may reduce
deposits, Yamaha recommends the use of
Ring Free Fuel Additive, available from
your Yamaha dealer. Ring Free Fuel Additive has repeatedly proven its ability to clean
combustion deposits from inside the engine,
notably the critical piston-ring-land area, and

Trimming outboard motor
The trim angle of the outboard motor helps
determine the position of the bow of the boat
in the water. Correct trim angle will help improve performance and fuel economy while
reducing strain on the engine. Correct trim
angle depends upon the combination of
boat, engine, and propeller. Correct trim is
also affected by variables such as the load in
the boat, sea conditions, and running speed.

WARNING

EWM00740
WARNING
Excessive trim for the operating conditions (either trim up or trim down) can
cause boat instability and can make
steering the boat more difficult. This increases the possibility of an accident. If
the boat begins to feel unstable or is hard
to steer, slow down and/or readjust the
trim angle.
●
●
Be sure all people are clear of the outboard motor when adjusting the tilt angle, also be careful not to pinch any
body parts between the drive unit and
clamp bracket.
Use caution when trying a trim position
for the first time. Increase speed gradually and watch for any signs of instability or control problems. Improper trim
angle can cause loss of control.
Use the power tilt switch located on the

your boat and operating conditions.
EMU27911
Adjusting boat trim
When the boat is on plane, a bow-up attitude
results in less drag, greater stability and efficiency. This is generally when the keel line of
the boat is up about 3 to 5 degrees. With the
bow up, the boat may have a greater tendency to steer to one side or the other. Compensate for this as you steer. The trim tab can
also be adjusted to help offset this effect.
When the bow of the boat is down, it is easier
to accelerate from a standing start onto
plane.
Bow Up
Too much trim-out puts the bow of the boat
too high in the water. Performance and economy are decreased because the hull of the
boat is pushing the water and there is more
air drag. Excessive trim-out can also cause
the propeller to ventilate, which reduces performance further, and the boat may “porpoise” (hop in the water), which could throw
the operator and passengers overboard.
Bow Down
Too much trim-in causes the boat to “plow”
through the water, decreasing fuel economy
and making it hard to increase speed. Operating with excessive trim-in at higher speeds
also makes the boat unstable. Resistance at
the bow is greatly increased, heightening the
danger of “bow steering” and making operation difficult and dangerous.
NOTE:
Depending on the type of boat, the outboard
motor trim angle may have little effect on the
trim of the boat when operating.

Tilting up and down

gine power means the loss of most
steering control. Also, without engine
power, the boat could slow rapidly. This
could cause people and objects in the
boat to be thrown forward.
Be sure no one is standing behind you
when pulling the starter rope. It could
whip behind you and injure someone.
An unguarded, rotating flywheel is very
dangerous. Keep loose clothing and
other objects away when starting the
engine. Use the emergency starter rope
only as instructed. Do not touch the flywheel or other moving parts when the
engine is running. Do not install the
starter mechanism or top cowling after
the engine is running.
Do not touch the ignition coil, spark
plug wire, spark plug cap, or other electrical components when starting or operating the motor. You could get an
electrical shock.
