Chapter 1: Welcome Aboard!
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.
• There are two methods of slowing marine growth:
1. Periodically haul the boat out of the water and scrub the hull bottom with a bristle brush and a solution of soap
and water.
2. Occasionally re-paint the hull below the waterline with a good grade of anti-fouling paint.
Sacrificial Anode (Zinc)
NOTICE
• Do NOT paint between the zinc and the metal surface it contacts and do NOT paint over
the zinc.
• If the zinc is NOT bonded correctly, it will NOT provide protection.
Your boat is equipped with a sacrificial anode (zinc) to protect underwater metal parts from excessive deterioration.
Check the zinc regularly and replace it if it has deteriorated
more than 70%.
Many factors affect the rate at which the zinc deteriorates,
including:
• Water temperature
• Salinity
• Water pollution
• Stray Electrical current
Stray electrical current from your boat, another boat, or the
dock may cause complete deterioration of the zinc in just a
few weeks. If there is rapid zinc deterioration, measure the
electrolytic corrosion around your boat with a corrosion
test meter.

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.
CO Facts
• 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
7
Chapter 1: Welcome Aboard!
305 • 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 engines 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 monitors inside your boat. Do not ignore any alarm. Replace monitors as recommended
by the monitor manufacturer.
• Follow the checklists provided on the next page.
• Get a Vessel Safety Check.
For information on how to get a free VESSEL SAFETY CHECK, visit www.vesselsafetycheck.org or contact your
local U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary or United States Power Squadrons®.

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 monitor 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).
CO Monitor
NOTICE
• The stereo memory and the CO monitor place a small, but constant drain on the battery.
• If your boat will be unattended for an extended amount of time, plug into shore power with
the battery charger turned On.
• Do not disconnect the CO monitor.
• Read the manufacturer’s instructions for your CO monitor. If you did not receive the manufacturer’s instructions, call (800) 383-0269 and one will be mailed to you.
If your boat is not equipped with a CO monitor, consider purchasing one from your dealer or marine supply store.

electrical devices.
• If you smell fuel and the engines and/or generator are already running, shut Off the engines
and/or generator and turn Off all electrical devices. Investigate immediately.
• Do NOT obstruct or modify the ventilation system.
• The bilge blower system removes explosive
fumes from the engine and bilge areas.
• Fresh air is drawn into the engine and bilge
areas through the vents.
To make sure the engine and bilge areas
are properly ventilated:
• Use the "sniff test" to check the engine and
bilge areas for fuel vapors before starting
the engines or the generator (if equipped).
• Always run the bilge blower system for at
least four minutes before starting the engines
or the generator (if equipped).

• 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 reapplied 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
