Chapter 1: Welcome Aboard!
245 • Owner’s Manual Supplement
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.
• Occasionally re-paint the hull below the waterline with a good grade of anti-fouling paint.
Sacrificial Anodes (Zincs)
NOTICE
Do not paint between the zinc and the metal surface it contacts and do not paint over the zincs.
NEW SACRIFICIAL ANODE
DETERIORATED SACRIFICIAL ANODE
Your boat is equipped with sacrificial anodes (zincs) to protect underwater metal parts from excessive deterioration.
Check zincs regularly and replace them if they have deteriorated more than 70%.
There are many factors that determine the rate at which zincs deteriorate, including:
• Water temperature
• Salinity
• Water pollution
Stray 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. If the zincs are not
bonded correctly, they will not provide protection.

245 • Owner’s Manual Supplement
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
5
Chapter 1: Welcome Aboard!
245 • 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.
• 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.

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.
❏ Confirm that water flows from the exhaust outlet when the engines and generator are started.
❏ 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
!
DANGER!
CARBON MONOXIDE POISONING HAZARD!
• The house battery switch must be in the On position for the CO Monitors
to work.
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, or disconnect the battery if shore power is not an option.
• Your boat features a carbon monoxide (CO) alarm system
• Do not disconnect the alarm system.
• Read and understand 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.

WARNING!
SHOCK & ELECTRICAL SYSTEM DAMAGE HAZARD!
Periodically check the shore power cord(s) for deterioration 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 accidently becomes immersed in water, THOROUGHLY dry the
blades and contact slots before reusing.

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 components in order to use another accessory.
• Use double insulated or three-wire protected electrical appliances whenever possible.
NOTICE
• Some dockside installations 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.
• The single shore power 120V/60Hz, AC system (if equipped) features one, 120V/30 amp, shore power receptacle.
• If your boat is equipped with an air conditioning system, a second (dual) 30 amp inlet has been installed.
• The dual shore power inlets are labeled "LINE 1" and "LINE 2", which corresponds to the "LINE 1" and "LINE 2"
master breakers on the AC panel.
• The dual shore power system is designed so that each line is independent of the other except when the AC power
transfer switch is used.

Review all hazard information at the beginning of this section, Shore Power.
Turn off all breakers and switches on the AC master panel.
Attach the shore power cord to the boat inlet first then to the dockside outlet.
Monitor the AC panel’s polarity indicator lights, located below the line master breaker(s), as follows:
A green light illuminating after the power cord is plugged into the dockside outlet indicates acceptable
electrical power. You may turn On the master breaker switch.
A red light, however, indicates reversed polarity, which could cause electrical system damage and possibly
electrical shock injuries. In this case, do not turn On the master breaker switch.
Switch the "LINE 1 DOCKSIDE MASTER" On.
If equipped with dual dockside, switch the "LINE 2 DOCKSIDE MASTER" On.
Turn On the individual component breakers as required.
Transfer Switch (If Equipped with Dual Shore Power)
NOTICE
• When using the "Transfer Switch" do not exceed 30 total amps.
• The amperage of each component breaker is shown in figure 1.
• The voltage on each line can be read by setting the voltmeter selector switch.
When only one dockside outlet is available, you can use the "Transfer Switch" to provide power to both lines.
1. Connect to shore power as described in steps 1 through 4 above.
2. Switch the "LINE 1 TRANSFER SWITCH" (transfers power from line 1 to line 2) On instead of the
"LINE 2 DOCKSIDE MASTER.
3. Turn On the individual component breakers as required.
