As the owner of the boat, you are legally responsible for all liabilities of operation.
Secure insurance protection with a reputable insurance company through your
local insurance agent.
Learn about and operate your boat in accordance with local, state, and federal
laws, regulations, and registration requirements.
Owner’s Package
Each Pro-Line boat comes with an Owner’s Package that contains this Owner’s Manual along with materials
supplied by various manufacturers whose products have been installed on your boat. Manufacturers of certain
products (i.e., Stereo, TV, Stove, Refrigerator, Microwave, Engines, Electronics, etc.) provide their own limited
warranty and owner’s manuals. While we have endeavored to be as accurate as possible in this manual, if you
should notice a discrepancy between the information in this manual and that of the individual supplier’s manual,
always follow the instructions in the supplier’s manual.
Make sure that you complete the individual warranty cards for these products and forward them on to the
respective manufacturers to register for your warranty with them. Retain all materials in your Pro-Line Owner’s
Package for easy reference.
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.
2
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
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 poisoning 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.
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
5
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 and 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.





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.
6




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:





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.
7
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.
operate your Pro-Line in storm conditions:







When forced to
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 nonswimmers 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.
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
known 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.”






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 and Shift Controls for Twin Engines
Ignition – Binnacle, Forward, Neutral and Reverse Gear Operation
The binnacle is located at 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 a warning alarm that will go off in the unlikely event that an overheating problem occurs 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 is installed in close proximity to the binnacle or the ignition. 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.
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.
10
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
position 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 systems will differ depending upon your selection of engine package. Please carefully read the owner’s
manual provided by the specific manufacturer. Tilt steering is included with all factory installed engine packages.
Hydraulic Steering (Verado – Power)
Your Pro-Line is equipped with a self-contained hydraulic steering system when your engine package is factory
installed. 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, 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.
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.
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.
Note: If your engine package was not factory installed, some components that are normally
standard installations may not be included.
Trim Tabs
The trim tabs on the 29 Super Sport 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.
11
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 forward and check to see if
the opposite trim tab goes down. For example if the starboard trim 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 half-second
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.
Trim Tab Indicators (Optional)
This indicator switch may be added when trim tabs are factory
installed. The waterproof indicator and switch lights up to let you
know exactly where your trim tabs are.
12
Windlass with Rode and Chain (Optional)
The optional windlass anchor system is located on the bow. 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.
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.

Battery Switch for Dual Batteries
The battery switches are installed behind the hatch
located below the transom door at the starboard aft
corner of the cockpit. They are for battery isolation,
parallel operation and disconnect.
The preferred switch position is port engine to position
one (1) on the port battery switch and starboard engine
to position two (2) on the starboard battery switch.
To test the operations of the battery switch, place the switch in the off position and try to start up the engine(s).
When the switch is off, you should not be able to start the engine(s). If you have selected the twin-engine
application, a dual battery switch for each engine is included as standard equipment.
Caution: To avoid possible alternator/battery damage on twin-engine installations, make sure
that the dual battery switches are never left so both engines are connected together, (i.e., never
leave a switch on “BOTH” or “ALL”). Never switch battery positions while the engines are
running.
Circuit Breakers
Circuit breakers and/or fuses protect the wiring. 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 breaker is located in the bilge on the starboard bulkhead.
Additional breakers and/or fuses for the port fish box, aft bilge, starboard fish box, trim tabs,
stereo and accessory switches are located above the main breaker.
Additional breaker switches are also located on the switch panel below the individual switches.
14
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.
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.

Full Instrumentation / Gauges (Digital)
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, 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 trim, volt and fuel gauges or a multifunction gauge that includes these 4
gauge functions. For boats rigged with digital gauges, the trim, volt and fuel gauges are
incorporated into the tachometer gauge.
Tachometer - 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 gauge is reading 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
(included in your owner’s package).
Speedometer - To ensure that the speedometer (Speedo) is working properly, get the boat on a planing speed
and check to see if the gauge is reading at the approximate running speed at which the boat is traveling.
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.
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 192 gallons of fuel and you pumped 45 to 50 gallons of fuel
into the tank, the fuel gauge should read approximately ¼ of a tank. This ensures that the fuel
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 a 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 material in your owner’s package that was provided by
the gauge manufacturer.
Fuel / Oil Systems
Fuel Tank
The 192-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.

Hose
Inspect all hose connections on a regular basis. You can access the other end of the fuel fill and fuel vent hoses
via the deck plate that is installed inside the compartment located starboard of the helm seat. This compartment
also contains the washdown hose.
Fuel Fill and Vent
The fuel fill is a stainless steel fitting labeled “Gas” or “Fuel”
and is located approximately amidships 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.
Fuel Fill
Fuel Vent
The external fuel vent is located 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.
Note: Never pump fuel into any fitting, opening or access on the boat unless it is labeled “Gas” or
“Fuel”.
Fuel Sender and Fuel Pick-Ups
The fuel sender is accessible via the access pie that is installed forward of the helm seat and aft of the console.
The fuel pick-ups are accessible via the access pie that is installed aft of the helm seat.
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 a qualified service professional remove the fuel sender and check to make sure that the
float is able to move up and down freely.
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 your engine manufacturer for proper procedures. Check engine
specs.
If your engine package requires the installation of fuel water separators, they will be mounted on one of the
stringers or bulkheads in the bilge. 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.
20
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 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.
Primer Bulbs
A primer bulb is installed for each engine, if applicable, 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. 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 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 mounted in the bilge beneath the transom sink and can be accessed via the hatch below the sink. The oil fill
will be installed on the port side of the transom and will be accessible from the dive platform.
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 service professional.
Sea Water System
Baitwell Pump
The baitwell switch at the helm controls the baitwell pump (1100 gph), which is mounted on a seacock in the bilge
area. The baitwell pump and seacock are accessible via the bilge hatch. 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. When the yellow seacock lever is horizontal, the seacock is closed.
The seacock should remain closed when the baitwell pump is not in use.

pump. When the baitwell pump is operating, go to the baitwell tub
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 45-gallon capacity baitwell tub is located below the transom
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.
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.
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 45-degree 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.
Float Switch
Bilge Pump
The boat is equipped with an 1100 gph bilge pump. This pump is installed as
far aft as possible in the bilge.
To check the operation of the bilge pump, first turn the bilge pump on at the
instrument panel by pressing the 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 bilge pump and listen to hear the bilge pump running.
Bilge Pump
Second, turn the bilge pump off at the instrument panel and check the bilge pump float switch. The 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, the pump will operate independently when water is present in the area. The
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, the automatic float is operating properly. It is
recommended that you check the operation of each automatic float switch monthly.
If for some reason the indicator light on your bilge pump switch 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.
22
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 pump charged. If the battery is not charged and flooding
occurs, the boat could swamp causing damage and possible loss of life or property.
Raw Water Washdown Pump
The washdown pump is mounted on the starboard aft stringer and is equipped with a pressure switch. This pump
shares the same seacock with the baitwell pump and is accessible via the bilge hatch.
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 and/or washdown pumps are not in use.
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.
The round filter (not visible in this photo) attached to the side of the washdown pump
should be removed and cleaned often with running water.
The raw water washdown hose is located in a compartment on the
starboard side of the helm seat. 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.
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.
Fish Boxes with Macerator Pumps (Forward and Aft)
Your boat is equipped with 1 forward and 2 aft fish boxes with a combined capacity of 143 gallons. The large fish
box on the forward casting deck has a capacity of 113 gallons and is plumbed to a forward fish box pump. This
forward fish box pump is installed below the floor hatch located forward of the seat on the front of the console.
The port and starboard fish boxes in the aft cockpit area each have a 15-gallons capacity and they are both
plumbed to an aft fish box pump that is installed below the floor hatch over the aft bilge area.
The fish box macerator pumps are each equipped with an automatic float switch. These two pumps drain the fish
boxes and/or macerate any fish particles. As the fish boxes drain, water and/or debris travel to the collector box
attached to the pump and then to the fish box macerator pump which pumps the water and/or debris overboard.
Forward Fish
Box Pump and
Collector Box
Aft Fish Box

Collector Box
23
The fish box macerator pumps operate on separate 2-way rocker switches (labeled Fish Box) that are located on
the switch panel.
Note: The switch panel has two fish box switches. The switch on the top row of switches
operates the forward fish box pump. The fishbox switch on the bottom row operates the aft fish
box pump.
To properly operate the fish box macerator pump, fill either the forward or aft fish boxes with water. Then depress
the applicable the fish box switch to the forward position. The water and fish particles will be pumped out of the
tubs and then overboard via the applicable fish box thru hull on the side of the boat. When you are finished
emptying the fish box, 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 90-degree 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 90-degree
elbow fitting back into the rubber grommet until is seats itself.
Note: There are two storage boxes on the forward casting deck located on either side of the
forward fish box. These boxes are insulated and gravity drain into the forward fishbox.
Fresh Water System
Note: There must be fresh water in the fresh water tank in order for the fresh water pump to
operate. Operating the pump with an empty tank could cause serious damage to the pump.
Fresh Water Tank and Fill
The 15-gallon capacity fresh water tank is mounted on a shelf in
the aft area of the bilge (below the motor well). The tank can be
filled via the stainless steel fresh water tank fill located at the
transom, next to the transom sink. 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. Use a garden
hose to fill the fresh water tank through this fitting.
Important: Fill the tank with potable water only. Refilling
the tank often will help to keep it a source of clean fresh
drinking water. Never fill the fresh water tank with
anything other than fresh water.
Fresh Water Pump
The fresh water pump is located on the port side of the bilge. Depressing the fresh
water switch located on the switch panel to the forward position provides power to the
fresh water pump.
The fresh water system hose is located at the transom, behind a white rubber
cap/cover. Pull open the cap and pull out the faucet/shower nozzle and hose. Press
the button on the nozzle to ensure proper operation (water spraying). This
faucet/shower nozzle can also be used at the transom sink. When you are finished,
stow away the transom fresh water hose and cover the outlet with the white rubber
cap.
If the fresh water system is not in going to be in use, return to the switch panel and turn the cabin water system
switch to the off position. When you close the faucet, the pump may run briefly. If the pump continues to run with
the faucet closed, check the system for leaks or have the pump tested.
24
Note: If you should hear a sucking sound, you may have a leak on the inlet side of the fresh
water tank. 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.
Cockpit Shower – Cold)
The cockpit shower located below the transom sink and is covered with a white cap.
This fresh water faucet/nozzle can also be used at the transom sink.
First, depress the fresh water switch located on the switch panel to the forward
position to activate the fresh water pump. Then, pull open the cap and pull out the
shower nozzle and hose. Press the button on the nozzle to begin spraying.
See the section titled Fresh Water Pump for operating instructions before using this
shower.
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.
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.

Cockpit / Deck Drains
There are two (2) 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.
31
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.

Operation and Performance
Trim / Tilt
The power trim system allows the operator to raise and lower the motor(s) 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.
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:
34




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.
 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.
35


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.
36
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 and 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 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.
37
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 phenomena that are relatively undefined. There is no 100% method of
prevention, although barrier coating and bottom painting are the best known deterrents.
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 vinyl
and rigid PVC. It should be cleaned with the same products used to clean the gelcoat. The insert is made of
stainless steel. See the Stainless Steel section further in this chapter for cleaning recommendations for the
stainless steel insert.
Water Pumps
The round filter attached to the side of the water pumps should be removed and cleaned often with clear water.
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
38
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
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 brushes,
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.
Pay particular attention when cleaning the tubing directly beneath the top (i.e., hard top, T-top, Bimini top). 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.
Additional information from Taco Metals is included in your owner’s package.
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 cleans 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.
39




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 anti-corrosion
anode often for operation. Check the electrical connections (green wire) on all metallic fittings with 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.
Head and Transom Doors
The head and transom doors are made of a strong poly (i.e., starboard material). To clean the poly doors, rinse
with fresh water to remove as much grime as possible. Then, wash with a mild dish cleaning soap and warm
water or a good marine grade cleaner that is recommended for cleaning poly, plastic or vinyl. You may use a soft
bristle nylon brush for stubborn stains. Never use any harsh chemicals, abrasive cleaners or any hard objects, as
they will damage the poly/starboard material. Be sure to read the manufacturer’s directions carefully before using
any cleaning product on your boat.
Tackle Box
Clean the tackle box trays and storage area using a soft cloth, warm water and a mild detergent or a good marine
grade cleaner that is recommended for cleaning plastic or vinyl. Never use any harsh chemicals, abrasive
cleaners or any hard objects, as they will damage the finish. Be sure to read the manufacturer’s directions
carefully before using any cleaning product on your boat.
Windshield
The windshield is made of Plexiglass. To clean the windshield:



Rinse with fresh water to remove as much grime as possible
Do not grind dirt, soil, saltwater residue, etc. into the windshield, as this will permanently damage
the windshield.
If further cleaning is required, the windshield manufacturer recommends cleaning the windshield
with a mild soap (preferably Ivory liquid soap), lukewarm water and a soft cloth. Make sure that
there is no cross contamination on the cloth. Allow the windshield to air dry. If you feel that you
must dry the windshield, use only a very very soft cloth.
Note: Do not clean the windshield with any window cleaner designed specifically for glass
windows or any cleaner containing harsh chemicals such as ammonia or alcohol as this will
permanently damage the lens/window.
Never use any harsh chemicals, abrasive cleaners or any hard objects, as they will permanently damage the
windshield.
40
Rigid / Trylon Top
If you have selected the rigid T-Top, your new top is made from Trylon. This is a composite plastic not
Fiberglass. It will give you years of trouble free service with a few simple steps.




Clean the rigid T-Top with soap and water. You may use denatured alcohol for hard to remove
stains.
Never clean using acetone or other harsh solvents, as this will damage your rigid T-Top.
Your rigid T-Top can be waxed using a standard non-abrasive automobile wax.
If you should need to tighten the rigid T-Top to the frame, use care not to over stress or deform
the top as this can cause failure over time. The top should be snug but not deformed by the
fasteners.
Bimini Top 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:







Brush off loose dirt.
Hose down.
Prepare a cleaning mixture of water and mild soap (Ivory Snow, Dreft or Woolite
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.
- no
If stubborn stains persist, you can use a diluted chlorine bleach/soap mixture for spot cleaning of mildew, roof runoff 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
41
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
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.
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.







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 (if equipped)
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
