• Follow the instructions provided in the Sport Boat Owner’s Manual, this Supplement, the engine owner’s manual
and all accessory literature.
Special Care For Moored Boats
NOTICE
• To help seal the hull bottom and reduce the possibility of gelcoat blistering on moored boats,
apply an epoxy barrier coating.
• The barrier coating should be covered with several coats of anti-fouling paint.
• Many states regulate the chemical content of bottom paints in order to meet environmental
standards. Check with your local dealer about recommended bottom paints, and about the
laws in effect in your area.
• Whether moored in saltwater or freshwater, your boat will collect marine growth on its hull bottom.
• This will detract from the boat’s beauty, greatly affect its performance and may damage the gelcoat.
• Periodically haul the boat out of the water and scrub the hull bottom with a bristle brush and a solution of soap
and water.

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

Chapter 1: Welcome Aboard!
185, 195, 205, & 225 • Owner’s Manual Supplement
Where and How CO Can Accumulate
Stationary Conditions That Increase CO Accumulations Include:
A. Using engine, generator, or other fuel burning device when boat is moored in a confined space.
B. Mooring too close to another boat that is
using its engine, generator, or other fuel
burning device.
To correct stationary situations A and/or B:
• Close all windows, portlights and hatches.
• If possible, move your boat away from source of CO.
Running Conditions That Increase CO Accumulations Include:
C. Running boat with trim angle of bow too high.
D. Running boat without through ventilation
(station wagon effect).
To correct running situations C and/or D:
• Trim bow down.
• Open windows and canvas.
• When possible, run boat so that prevailing winds help dissipate exhaust.
How to Protect Yourself and Others From CO
• Know where and how CO may accumulate in and around your boat (see above).
• Maintain fresh air circulation throughout the boat at all times.
• Know where your engine and generator exhaust outlets are located and keep everyone away from these areas.
• Never sit on, or hang onto, the back deck or swim platform while the engine(s) are running.
• Never enter the areas under swim platforms where exhaust outlets are located.
• Although CO can be present without the smell of exhaust fumes, if exhaust fumes are detected on the boat, take
immediate action to dissipate these fumes.
• Treat symptoms of seasickness as possible CO poisoning. Get the person into fresh air immediately. Seek medical
attention—unless you’re sure it’s not CO.
• Install and maintain CO alarms inside your boat. Do not ignore any alarm. Replace alarms as recommended by the
alarm manufacturer.
• Follow the checklists provided on the next page.
• Get a Vessel Safety Check.

CO Checklists
Trip Checklist
❏ Make sure you know where the exhaust outlets are located on your boat.
❏ Educate all passengers about the symptoms of CO poisoning and where CO may accumulate.
❏ When docked, or rafted with another boat, be aware of exhaust emissions from the other boat.
❏ Listen for any change in exhaust sound, which could indicate an exhaust component failure.
❏ Test the operation of each CO alarm by pressing the test button.
Monthly Checklist
❏ Make sure all exhaust clamps are in place and secure.
❏ Look for exhaust leaking from exhaust system components. Signs include rust and/or black streaking, water
leaks, or corroded or cracked fittings.
❏ Inspect rubber exhaust hoses for burned, cracked, or deteriorated sections. All rubber hoses should be pliable and
free of kinks.
Annual Checklist
Have a Qualified Marine Technician:
❏ Replace exhaust hoses if cracking, charring, or deterioration is found.
❏ Ensure that your engines and generators are properly tuned, and well maintained.
❏ Inspect each water pump impeller and the water pump housing. Replace if worn. Make sure cooling systems are
in working condition.
❏ Inspect all metallic exhaust components for cracking, rusting, leaking, or loosening. Make sure they check the
cylinder head gasket, exhaust manifold, water injection elbow, and the threaded adapter nipple between the manifold and the elbow.
❏ Clean, inspect, and confirm proper operation of the generator cooling water anti-siphon valve (if equipped).
Carbon Monoxide Alarm System (If Equipped)
NOTICE
The stereo memory and CO monitor(s) place a small, but constant drain on the battery.
• Do not disconnect the alarm system.
• Read the manufacturer’s instructions for your CO alarm system. If you did not receive an instruction manual, call
(800) 383-0269 and one will be mailed to you.
If your boat is not equipped with a carbon monoxide alarm, consider purchasing one from your dealer or marine
supply store.

Canvas Care (see also, ‘Clear Vinyl Care’ on next page)
• After each use, especially in saltwater, rinse the canvas with cold freshwater.
• Before stowing, let the canvas air dry completely.
• The canvas can be rolled or folded for stowage.
Cleaning Canvas
!
CAUTION
NEVER use detergents when washing the canvas. Detergents can destroy the water repellency,
and mildew/UV resistant finish of your canvas.
Regularly clean the canvas to prevent dirt, pollen, and etc. from embedding in the fabric. Generally, it is easiest to
wash the canvas while it is installed on the boat.
• Use a soft-bristled brush to remove all dust and loose dirt.
1. Hose down the canvas with freshwater.
2. Gently wash the canvas with a solution of lukewarm water (no more than 100 F) and non-detergent soap, such as
Lux or Ivory Flakes.
3. Rinse thoroughly to remove the soap.
4. Before stowing, let the canvas dry completely.
Stubborn Stains
!
CAUTION
• Soaking in bleach solutions may remove the waterproof finish of the fabric and may also
decrease the life of the polyester thread used in the canvas.
• If necessary, a water repellent treatment should be re-applied to your canvas. Ask your
dealer about the treatments available for your boat’s canvas.
Some stubborn stains may resist normal washing and you can try the following methods. However, these methods
may remove the waterproof finish of the fabric and may also decrease the life of the polyester thread used in the
canvas. Reapply a water repellent treatment as necessary.
Method 1
1. Add 1/8 cup (2 oz.) of non-chlorine bleach to one gallon of water and mix thoroughly.
2. Thoroughly wet the canvas and then gently scrub the stained area with the weak bleach solution.
3. Rinse with cold water to remove all of the solution.
Method 2
1. Add 1/2 cup (4 oz.) of non-chlorine bleach and 1/2 cup (4 oz.) Ivory Flakes to one gallon of water and
mix thoroughly.
2. Soak the canvas in this solution for about 20 minutes.
