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.
• Periodically haul the boat out of the water and scrub the hull bottom with a bristle brush and a solution of soap
and water.
Sacrificial Anodes (Zincs)
NOTICE
• Do not paint between the zinc and the metal surface it contacts and do not paint over
the zincs.
• If the zincs are not bonded correctly, they will not provide protection.
Your boat is equipped with sacrificial anodes (zincs) to protect underwater metal parts from excessive deterioration.
Check the zincs regularly and replace them if they have deteriorated more than 70%.
There are many factors that affect the rate at which the zincs deteriorate, including:
• Water temperature.
• Salinity.
• Water pollution.
• Stray electrical current from the boat or dock may cause complete deterioration 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.
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
7
Chapter 1: Welcome Aboard!
275 • 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.
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®.

Chapter 1: Welcome Aboard!
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
NOTICE
• The stereo memory and CO monitor(s) 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 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.

EXTREME FIRE, SHOCK & EXPLOSION HAZARD!
To minimize the risks of fire and explosion, NEVER install knife switches or other arcing
devices in the fuel compartments.
NEVER substitute automotive parts for marine parts. Electrical, ignition and fuel system
parts were designed and manufactured to comply with rules and regulations that minimize
risks of fire and explosion.
DO NOT modify the electrical systems or relevant drawings.
Have qualified personnel install batteries and/or perform electrical system maintenance.
Make sure that all battery switches are turned Off before performing any work in the
engine spaces.
WARNING!

•
DANGER!
FIRE & EXPLOSION HAZARD!
Fuel fumes are heavier than air and will collect in the bilge areas where they can be
accidently ignited.
Visually and by smell (sniff test), check the engine and fuel compartments for fumes or
accumulation of fuel.
ALWAYS run the bilge blowers for at least four minutes prior to engine starting, electrical
system maintenance or activation of electrical devices.
Minimize the danger of fire and explosion by not exposing the batteries to open flame or
sparks. NEVER smoke anywhere near the batteries.
!
CAUTION
SHOCK & ELECTRICAL SYSTEM DAMAGE HAZARD!
NEVER disconnect the battery cables while the engine is running since it can cause
damage to your boat’s electrical system components.
NOTICE
Electrical connections are prone to corrosion. To reduce corrosion caused electrical problems,
keep all electrical connections clean and apply a spray-on protectant that is designed to protect
connections from corrosion.

12-Volt DC System
Batteries
The batteries supply electricity for lights, 12-Volt accessories, and engine starting. The Electrical section of Chapter
8, in the Cruiser & Yacht Owner’s Manual, provides battery, care and maintenance instructions.
Battery Switch
!
CAUTION
• Never disconnect the battery cables or turn Off the battery switch while the engine is running as this can cause damage to your boat’s electrical components
• The batteries supply electricity for lights, 12-volt
accessories, and engine starting.
• 'Standby Loads', such as the automatic bilge
pumps, and the stereo memory, are not affected
by the battery switch since they are wired
directly to the battery.
• Turn the battery switch to the Off position whenever the boat will be unoccupied for long periods
of time.
BATTERY
SWITCH
Fuses and Circuit Breakers
• Fuses and circuit breakers for the engine and main accessory power are on the DC distribution panels and on the
battery switch panel.
• Some equipment may have secondary fuse protection at the unit, behind the battery management panel or at
the batteries.
• Electronics power is provided at the helm station.
12-Volt Accessory Outlets
!
CAUTION
DO NOT use the 12-volt accessory outlets with a cigarette or cigar lighter. High temperatures
may melt the outlets.
• These outlets can be used with any 12-volt device which draws 15-amps or less.
• The 12-volt accessory outlets are protected by a 15-amp circuit breaker on the main circuit breaker panel.

Alternator
The engine alternator will keep the batteries properly charged when running at cruising speeds.
Battery Charger
!
CAUTION
• The battery charging systems (alternator and battery charger) installed on your boat are
designed to charge conventional lead-acid batteries.
• Before installing gel-cell or other new technology batteries, consult with the battery manufacturer about charging system requirements.
• Before using the battery charger, read all instructions
and warnings: (1) on the battery charger, (2) on the
batteries, and (3) in the battery charger manual.
• The battery charger will charge the boat’s batteries
whenever the boat is plugged into 120V/60Hz shore
power and the 'BATTERY CHARGER' AC circuit
breaker is On.
• The battery switch can be in any position
during charging.
• You may use DC powered electrical systems,
such as the lights and stereo when the battery
charger is On, but there will be a corresponding

DANGER!
FIRE, EXPLOSION & SHOCK HAZARD!
DO NOT alter shore power connectors and use only compatible connectors.
Before plugging in or unplugging the shore power cord to your boat, make sure all breakers
and switches on the AC master panel are turned Off.
To prevent shock or injury from an accidental dropping of the “hot” cord into the water,
ALWAYS plug the shore power cord to the boat inlet first; then to the dockside outlet. When
unplugging from shore power, unplug the shore power cord from the dockside outlet first.
NEVER leave a shore power cord plugged in to the dockside outlet only.
Only use shore power cords approved for marine use. NEVER use ordinary indoor or
outdoor extension cords that are not rated for marine use.
!
WARNING!
SHOCK & ELECTRICAL SYSTEM DAMAGE HAZARD!
• Monitor the polarity indicator lights EVERY TIME you connect to shore power.
• If a reversed polarity light turns On when you are connecting to shore power, DO NOT turn
On the main breaker switches.
• Instead, IMMEDIATELY unplug the shore power cord (ALWAYS from the dockside outlet
first) and alert marina management.
!
•
•
•
•
WARNING!
SHOCK & ELECTRICAL SYSTEM DAMAGE HAZARD!
Before each use, check the shore power cord(s) for defects or damage.
NEVER use damaged or faulty cords since the danger of fire and electrical shock exists.
DO NOT pinch shore power cords in doors or hatches, or coil the shore power cord too
tightly since these situations can generate enough heat to result in a fire.
If a shore power cord is dropped into the water, THOROUGHLY dry the blades and contact
slots before using.
!
CAUTION
ELECTRICAL SYSTEM DAMAGE HAZARD!
• NEVER connect to dockside power outside of North America unless you have purchased the
international electrical conversion option.
• Using several AC components at the same time can result in an overloaded circuit. You may
have to turn Off one or more appliances in order to use another appliance.
• Use double insulated or three-wire protected electrical appliances whenever possible.
NOTICE
• Some dockside outlets may be rated less than 30 amps, therefore, you may need to purchase
lower amp adapters.
• Whenever a lower amp adapter is used, however, there will be a corresponding drop in
supplied power from the dockside system.
