SECTION 1 • SAFETY
SAFE boating means:
1. Safety Labels
•
Knowing the limitations of your boat;
•
Following the rules of the road;
•
Keeping a sharp lookout for people and objects
in the water;
•
Not boating in water or weather conditions that
are beyond the boat’s and the operator’s
capability;
•
Never boating when the operator is under the
influence of drugs or alchohol;
Safety precautions are given throughout this manual
and labels are mounted at key locations throughout
the boat. This safety information advises the owner/
operator and passengers of imperative safety
precautions to follow when operating and/or
servicing equipment.engine serial numbers and part
numbers when writing about or ordering parts for
your engine. Refer to the Engine Operator’s Manual
for locations of engine serial numbers and record
them for future reference.
•
•
Being aware of your passenger’s safety at all
times; and
Reducing speed when there is limited visibility,
rough water, nearby people in the water, boats,
or structures.
Boating in beautiful weather and calm water
conditions can be a wonderful experience.
Pleasurable boating, however, requires considerably
greater skills than operating a land vehicle. To obtain
these skills, you must:
•
•
Take a Coast Guard, U.S. Power Squadron or
equivalent boating safety course. Call the Boat/
U.S. Foundation at 1-800-336-2628 for
information on available courses.
Get hands-on training on how to operate your
boat properly.
In addition:
•
Maintain your boat and its safety and other
systems as recommended in this manual.
•
Have the boat inspected by a qualified mechanic
or dealer, at least annually.
•
Ensure that the Coast Guard required safety
equipment is on board and functions. (See page
1.3).
•
Figure 1.17.1-1.19.1 shows the location of the
safety labels on your boat.
•
Do not remove or obstruct any safety label.
•
Replace any label which becomes illegible.
Replacement safety labels can be obtained by
calling your dealer or Sea Ray at 1-800SRBOATS for information on how to contact the
manufacturing facility for your boat.
The meaning associated with each of the four basic
types of label is:
! DANGER
DANGER – Immediate hazards which WILL result in
severe personal injury or death if the warning is
ignored.
! WARNING
WARNING – Hazards or unsafe practices which
COULD result in severe personal injury or death if
the warning is ignored.
! CAUTION
CAUTION – Hazards or unsafe practices which could
result in minor injury or product or property damage
if the warning is ignored.
NOTICE
Information which is important to proper operation
or maintenance, but is not hazard-related.
300 Sundancer® (335 Sundancer®)

SECTION 1 • SAFETY
2. LEGALLY MANDATED MINIMUM
REQUIRED EQUIPMENT
Consult your national boating law enforcement
agency.
The following equipment is the minimum required
by the U.S. Coast Guard for a boat 26’ to less than
40’ [7.9 meters to less than 12 meters] in length.
Personal Flotation Devices (PFD’s): One Coast
Guard approved Type I, II or III device is mandatory for
each person aboard. One throwable Type IV device
is also required to be on board. A Type V device
is acceptable if worn for approved use. See Page
1.4 for a description of these PFD classifications.
Always wear a PFD when boating.
Fire Extinguisher - Portable: If no fixed fire
extinguishing system is installed in the engine and
generator spaces, the U.S. Coast Guard requires two
(2) Type B-1 or one (1) Type B-2 fire extinguisher
be on board. If your boat is equipped with a fixed fire
extinguishing system in the engine and generator
spaces, the U.S Coast Guard requires one (1) Type
B-1 fire extinguisher be on board. The American
Boat and Yacht Council (ABYC) recommends that
you have three (3) Type B-1 ABC fire extinguishers
on board located outside the engine compartment,
at the helm station and in the galley.
Whistle, Horn: You must have on board some
means of making a loud sound signal, for example,
whistle or horn.
Visual Distress Signals: If you operate your boat
in coastal waters or on the Great Lakes, you must
have visual distress signals for day and night use on
board. At least three (3) U.S. Coast Guard approved
pyrotechnic devices marked with date showing
service life must be carried, be readily accessible,
in serviceable condition and not expired. Store
pyrotechnic signals in a well-marked waterproof
container in a dry location.
Other: Your Sea Ray is equipped with the required
navigation lights, engine exhaust and ventilation
systems.
1.2
3. FIRE EXTINGUISHING SYSTEM
Your boat is equipped with an automatic fire
extinguisher system. Located in the engine
compartment. In the event of a fire, the heat
sensitive automatic head in the engine compartment
will release a fire-extinguishing vapor, totally
flooding the area.
The dashboard contains an indicator light for the
automatic fire extinguishing system. The light will
be ON when the ignition is on and indicates that
the system is ready. If the light goes out while the
ignition is on, the system has discharged.
WHEN DISCHARGE OCCURS, IMMEDIATELY
SHUT DOWN ALL ENGINES, POWERED
VENTILATION, ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS AND
EXTINGUISH ALL SMOKING MATERIALS. DO
NOT IMMEDIATELY OPEN THE ENGINE
COMPARTMENT!! THIS FEEDS OXYGEN TO
THE FIRE AND THE FIRE COULD RESTART.
Wait at least fifteen (15) minutes before opening
the engine compartment. This permits the fireextinguishing vapor to “soak” the compartment long
enough for hot metals and fuels to cool. Have
portable extinguishers at hand and ready to use in
case the fire reignites. Do not breathe fumes or
vapors caused by the fire.
4. CARBON MONOXIDE

Fumes from engine, generators, and other equipment
and appliances using burning fuel contain carbon
monxide.
Carbon Monoxide can kill you.
Open all doors, curtains, windows, and hatches to let
fresh air circulate, when running engine, generator
or burning any fuel when boat is anchored, moored
or docked.

! DANGER
Sleeping on boat requires a operating Carbon
Monoxide detection system in each sleeping location.
turns cherry red. Because carbon monoxide gas
(CO) is odorless, colorless and tasteless, it is
unlikely to be noticed until a person is overcome.
Dangerous concentrations of carbon monoxide will
be present if:
•
Do not idle engine without moving boat for more
than 15 minutes at a time.
•
Inspect the exhaust system regularly. (See
Section 8, Required Inspection, Service and
Maintenance.
If CO poisoning is suspected, have the victim breath
fresh air deeply. If breathing stops, resuscitate. A
victim often revives, then relapses because organs
are damaged by lack of oxygen. Seek immediate
medical attention.
A. CARBON MONOXIDE MONITOR
Your boat has carbon monoxide (CO) monitors
mounted throughout the boat . The CO monitor is
an electronic instrument that detects CO. When
there is a buildup of CO, the monitor will alert the
occupants by a flashing DANGER light and alarm.
The CO monitor is wired through a breaker on the
DC distribution panel.
•
the engine and/or generator exhaust systems

•
insufficient fresh air is circulating where people
are present; and
•
fumes move from the rear of the boat into the
cockpit and cabin area.
It is extremely important that you become totally
familiar with your CO monitor and its functions.
Figure 1.4.1 gives examples of boat operating
conditions that can lead to high concentrations of
carbon monoxide gas.
Read and understand the CO monitor information
and operating instructions located in your Owner’s
Manual Packet.
To minimize the danger of CO accumulation when
the engine and/or generator are running, or using
burning fuel applications.
5. LIFESAVING EQUIPMENT
•
Be sure to have sufficient ventilation when using
canvas or window-type side curtains when
underway, anchored, moored or docked.
•
If the convertible top is installed, operate with
the forward hatch open and leave cabin door
open.
•
Operate all burning fuel appliances, such as
charcoal, propane, LPG, CNG or alcohol
cooking devices in areas where fresh air can
circulate. Do not use such devices where there
is no noticeable air movement, especially in the
cabin, when anchored, moored or docked.
300 Sundancer® (335 Sundancer®)
Even strong swimmers can tire quickly in the water
and drown due to exhaustion, hypothermia, or both.
The buoyancy provided by a personal flotation
device (PFD) will allow the person who has fallen
overboard to remain afloat with far less effort and
heat loss, extending survival time necessary to find
and retrieve them.
Boat operators are required to carry one wearable
personal flotation device (Type I,II,III or V) for every
person on board. Boats must also have at least one
throwable device (Type IV).
The law requires that PFD’s must be readily
accessible, if not worn. “Readily accessible” means

7. IMPAIRED OPERATION
Drugs and/or alcohol will prevent you from operating
your boat safely. This single factor is involved in
more marine accidents and deaths than any other.
The detrimental effects of alcohol and drugs are
increased by the wind, waves and sun, quickly
impairing your ability to react properly and promptly
in an emergency.
! WARNING
Drugs and/or alcohol impair the operator’s ability to
control the boat safely.
Death or serious injury can result from improper boat
operation.

SECTION 1 • SAFETY
8. LOAD CAPACITY
! WARNING
The certification plate (See fig. 1.6.1 & 1.6.2) located
near the helm indicates maximum weight and
number of persons your boat can handle under calm
sea conditions. Do not exceed the load capacities
stated. The number of people on board must be
reduced if you go out in poor weather and rough
water.
The information present on the certification plate
does not relieve the operator from responsibility.
Use common sense and sound judgement when
placing equipment and/or passengers in your boat.
When engine is running, keep passengers away from
areas not designed for riding, such as seat backs,
bow, gunwales, transom platform, swim platform,
front and rear decks and on sun pads.
Passengers can fall overboard if not seated properly
on the seats provided.

9. POWER CAPACITY
Do not exceed the maximum engine power rating
stated on the certification plate. Your boat will be
difficult to handle and will be less stable.
Your Sea Ray® has been equipped with a propeller
which our tests have shown to be the best suited
for general use with our engine under normal
conditions and load. Do not change the pitch of your
propeller without getting your dealer’s
recommendations first. If you change to a different
propeller pitch, under no circumstances use a
propeller which allows the engine to operate at
higher than recommended RPM. (your engine
manual specifies the maximum recommended
(RPM).
To maintain rated power, propellers should be free
of nicks, excessive pitting and any distortions that
alter them from their original design. Badly damaged
propellers should be replaced, but those that are
chipped, bent or merely out of shape can be
reconditioned by your marine dealer.
300 Sundancer® (335 Sundancer®)
SECTION 1 • SAFETY
It is advisable to carry an extra propeller aboard in
case you damage the one in use.
10. STABILITY
Your boat was manufactured to specific stability and
flotation standards for the capacity shown on the
certification plate. Any increase from the
recommended load capacities will put your boat in
jeopardy of capsizing, swamping and/or sinking.
IN
ADDITION:
•
Stability may be substantially reduced if
equipment is added above the deck.
•
Your passengers are relying on you to operate and
maneuver the boat safely so that they are not in
danger of going overboard. If you turn to quickly,
increase or decrease speed abruptly, your
passengers are at risk of being thrown overboard
or thrown about the boat.
When visibility becomes impaired because of
weather, time of day or high bow angle you must
slow down so that you have sufficient time to react
if an emergency occurs. Nearby boats face similar
risks in avoiding a collision with you.
! WARNING
Death or serious injury can result if you fail to observe
these safety rules:
Stability is substantially reduced by loose fluids
or weight within the hull. Keep bilge area as dry
as possible, and close all openings, hatches and
windows in rough weather.
! WARNING
Distribute passengers and gear as uniformly as
possible from front to rear and left to right.
•
Anyone who controls the boat must have
taken a boating safety course and have
trained in the proper operation of the
boat.
•
Always operate the boat at speeds that
will not put people or property in danger.
•
Be constantly aware of conditions in all
directions when underway and before
turning.
•
Reduce speed, use a lookout to identify
possible hazards or difficulties, and turn
on navigation lights when:
The manufacturer’s load rating is the maximum
allowed under calm conditions.
Reduce boat loading if weather, water or other
conditions are adverse.
- visibility is impaired;
11. MAINTAIN CONTROL
- in rough water; and
On the water there are no marked traffic lanes, no
traffic signs or lights, and boats have no turn signals.
The boat operator must keep her or his attention
focused not only on what’s ahead but what’s on the
left, right and behind the boat.
- in congested waterways.
The operator must always be alert to approaching
boats (from the rear, right and left sides, as well as
those ahead). There can be people in the water,
partially submerged debris, and other navigational
hazards such as rocks, sand bars, dangerous
currents, to name a few.

Do not take chances!
! DANGER
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO BOAT IN
SEVERE WEATHER CONDITIONS
Observe the safety rules listed below.
DEATH OR SERIOUS INJURY CAN OCCUR
12. WEATHER
There are four design categories of boats based
upon their ability to withstand wind and sea or water
conditions:
A. Ocean
Wind speed: above 40 knots (46 mph)
Wave height: above 4 meters (13 feet)
Boat may be used for extended ocean
voyages.
B. Offshore
Maximum wind speed: 40 knots (46 mph)
Maximum wave height: 4 meters (13 feet)
Boat can be used offshore, but not for
extended ocean voyages.
GET TO SHORE BEFORE
THE WEATHER TURNS BAD
Getting caught in severe weather is hazardous. Bad
weather and/or rough sea or water conditions can
cause an unsafe situation. Consult local weather
information, or listen to the NOAA weather reports
for the latest weather conditions or any impending
deterioration of the weather before setting out and
while underway. Following are a few basic weatherrelated rules:
•
Check the weather forecast and the water
conditions before leaving and while underway.
•
A sudden change in wind direction or speed or
an increase in wave height indicates
deteriorating weather.
•
Have everyone wear a personal flotation device.
•
If a storm approaches, immediately seek a safe
harbor.
•
If a storm hits, have everyone sit in the cabin or
on the cockpit deck in the boat. Head the bow
into the wind with enough power to maintain
slow headway.
Your 300 Sundancer® is Design Category B.
•
The wind speed and wave height specified as the
upper limit for your category of boat does not mean
that you or your passengers can survive if your boat
is exposed to these conditions. It is only the most
experienced operators and crew that may be able
If you encounter fog, determine your position,
set a safe course, slow down and alert other
boats of your presence with a sound signal.
•
If a lightning storm approaches, the safest action
is to dock and disembark. If you cannot return
to shore, have passengers go inside the cabin
C. Inshore
Maximum wind speed: 27 knots (31 mph)
Maximum wave height: 2 meters (6.5 feet)
Boat use is limited to coastal waters, large
bays, estuaries, lakes and rivers.
D. Sheltered waters
Maximum wind speed: 15 knots (18 mph)
Maximum wave height: 0.5 meters (1.5 feet)
Boat use is limited to small lakes, rivers and
canals.

SECTION 1 • SAFETY
and remain there until the storm passes.
•
•
Lightning seeks a ground when it strikes. The
best protection is a properly grounded lightning
rod placed high enough over the deck to provide
a protective umbrella over the hull. Depending
upon the likelyhood of your being in a lightning
storm, consult your dealer for installation of a
lightning rod. Stay clear of the lightning rod, all
attached wiring and all metal parts of the boat.
Stay out of the water during a lightning storm. If
caught swimming during a storm, get back into
the boat and remain there until the storm
passes.
If you are in an unfamiliar area without knowledge
of the hazards, proceed very slowly and have
someone watch for hazards.
Let others know where you are going. A float
plan describes your intended cruising course and
itinerary, boat description, and your expected time
and date of return. Give the float plan to a friend or
relative, so they can give the information to a
national boat agency, like the U.S. Coast Guard, in
the event you fail to return.
14. WATER SPORTS
13. CHART YOUR COURSE
! WARNING
! WARNING
Your boat can kill or injure persons in the water.
Always stay away from areas designated for
swimming or diving. Unless you are towing a skier,
stay away from water ski areas. Recognize markers
used for such areas.
Hitting an object in or under the water or boating in
dangerous currents can cause serious injury or death
to boat occupants.
You must know where the hazards are and avoid them.
When engine is running, close and lock transom door
and do not permit anyone to use boarding ladder and
swim platform.
In uncharted waters, boat very slowly and post a
lookout.
To avoid boating in unsafe areas where there are
underwater obstructions, shallow water,
unnavigable conditions such as dangerous
currents, and others, you must chart a course.
This means having and using the National Oceanic
and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) charts for
coastal waters, observing and understanding all
navigational aids, using the knowledge and
guidance of experienced boaters, and being aware
of the tide times where appropriate.
A. SWIMMING
•
Do not permit anyone to swim from a moving
boat, or a boat with an engine running.
•
Many localities prohibit swimming from boats
except in designated areas.
•
Make sure boat’s engines are turned off before
allowing people to swim anywhere near your
boat. Shut the engine OFF and remove the key
from the ignition switch so that nobody will
accidentally start the engine while swimmers are
nearby.
•
Turn off engines when taking swimmers or
skiers aboard or when they are entering the
water. Never permit use of the transom or swim
platform while engines are running.
•
Slow down and look for swimmers or skiers
when cruising in an area where there might be
persons in the water.
! WARNING
Shut engine off if an object is struck or if you run
aground.
Check for hull leaks and drive line damage, before
restarting engines.
Use hand pump if bilge pumps don’t remove water.
Boat very slowly, if you must proceed with a damaged
drive line.

Cut Motor – Draw finger across throat.
B. SKIING
Slow Down – Thumb pointed down or palm
down, move hand up and down.
! WARNING
Skiers must wear an approved PFD.
Faster – Thumb pointed up or palm up, move
hand up and down.
It is advised that you become familiar with water
skiing safety and hand signals as you will most
likely, on occasion, find yourself in the vicinity of or
engaging in water skiing activity.
OK – Raise arm and form a circle with thumb
and index finger.
Stop – Raise arm with palm vertical and
facing forward.
•
Anyone who water skis must know how to swim.
•
Never drive the boat directly behind a water
skier. At 22 knots (25 m.p.h.), it takes only 5
seconds to overtake a fallen skier who was 60
meters (200 feet) in front.
Turn Right – Extend arm out from body to
the right.
•
Keep a downed skier in sight and on the
operator’s side of the boat when approaching
the skier. Never back up to anyone in the water.
OK After a Fall – Clasp hands together
overhead.
•
Learn the signals to communicate with a skier.
The skier is to control the boat through hand
signals (Fig. 1.10.1).
Turn Left – Extend arm out from body to
the left.
•
Turn – Arm raised, circle with index finger
extended.
Skier in Water – Extend one ski vertically out
of water.
Back to Dock – Pat top of head.
If the skier suddenly releases the tow rope, it
can backlash into cockpit. Spotters who are
watching the skier must be aware of this fact
and be prepared to deflect the rope by hand to
avoid injury.

SECTION 1 • SAFETY
IN GENERAL
RETURNING
When engaged in water sports, be safe and
courteous to others sharing the water:
•
Immediately make everyone aware of the
incident and keep the victim in sight.
•
Slow the boat and keep pointing toward the
person overboard. At night, direct the best
available light source at the person.
Throw a life preserver, even if the person is
wearing a PFD. It will serve as another marker.
TO THE VICTIM
•
Be considerate to fishermen.
•
Do not water ski in congested areas.
•
Keep the boat and skier away from navigation
markers.
•
•
Stay well clear of other boats and skiers.
MAKING CONTACT
•
Stop or slow the boat and circle toward the
victim.
15. EMERGENCY SITUATIONS
•
Prevention is the safest approach. We hope that
you are never involved in an emergency situation.
Try to approach heading into the wind or into
the waves.
•
Keep the victim constantly in sight.
•
When almost alongside, stop the engine in gear
to prevent propeller “windmilling.”
ASSISTING OTHER BOATERS
All boaters have a legal obligation to help other
boaters who are in distress, as long as rendering
assistance does not endanger you, your passengers
or your boat.
GETTING BACK ABOARD
•
If you are involved in an emergency situation, it is
imperative that you know how to react, in order to
protect the lives in your care.
Try to reach the victim with a pole, or by throwing
a life preserver. Do not swim to rescue the
victim, except as a last resort.
•
Assist the person in boarding the boat. The
person should normally be brought in over the
stern.
A. MEDICAL EMERGENCY
•
You may be far from professional medical help when
you are boating. At least two people on board your
boat should be CPR certified, and should have
taken a first aid course. Equip your boat with a first
aid kit.
If the person is injured or cannot get into the
boat, a rescuer should put on a PFD with a
C. FIRE
B. WATER RESCUE
A person who has fallen overboard will die from
hypothermia in water temperatures below 70oF if
not rescued quickly. Water rescue consists of three
steps: returning to the victim, making contact with
the victim, and getting the victim back on board.
Fire is a serious boating hazard. Boats will burn
quickly. Do not remain on board and fight a fire for
more than a few minutes. If the fire cannot be
extinguished within a few minutes, abandon the
boat.
Have fire extinguishers handy. A small fire can be
extinguished quickly with the right size and type of
fire extinguisher.
•

•
•
If the fire is in the engine compartment and you
have an automatic extinguisher for the engine,
wait 15 minutes before opening the
compartment. Have a portable extinguisher
ready in case the fire flares up.
If a leak patch is attempted, it should be done
from the outside.
•
In the event of a collision, you are required to
file an accident report. Contact a state
enforcement agency or the nearest Coast
Guard office. If you are boating outside of U.S.
waters, consult the nation you are visiting for
accident reporting requirements.
•
Signal for help.
•
Grab distress signals and survival gear. Put on
PFDs. Prepare to abandon ship.
F. GROUNDING
D. FLOODING, SWAMPING
AND
CAPSIZING
In the event of running aground:
In the event of flooding, swamping or capsizing:
•
Check for leaks. If water is coming in, stop the
intake of water before attempting to get the boat
free.
Have everyone put on Personal Flotation
Devices (PFD’s).
•
Inspect for damage to the hull, propulsion and
steering systems.
•
Account for all who were on board.
•
•
If the boat is floating stay with the boat. Hang
on, or climb on the boat and signal for help.
Determine if the tide, wind and current will drive
the boat harder aground or will help to free it.
•
•
Only as a last resort should you attempt to swim
to shore - it is further away than it looks and
you can tire and drown.
Determine the water depth all around the boat,
and the type of bottom (sand, mud, rocks, etc.).
If it can be done without exposing persons to
risk of injury, the boat should be moved away
from hard obstructions and toward open water
with soft ground.
•
Do not attempt to have your boat towed by other
than a trained and competent service, such as
the Coast Guard or a salvage company.
Recreational craft are not designed to tow other
recreational craft.
•
Try to shut off engines, generators and blowers,
before leaving the boat.
•
E. COLLISIONS AND LEAKING
In the event of collision and leaking:
•
Slow down or stop to reduce water intake,
unless maintaining speed will keep the hole
above water.
•
Switch on bilge pumps.
•
If equipped, operate the manual bilge pump if
the powered bilge pumps can’t handle the water
flow.
•
Account for everyone on board and check for
injurys.
•
Have everyone put on PFDs.

in navigable waters. Discharge is defined as any
action which causes a film, sheen or discoloration
on the water surface, or causes a sludge or
emulsion beneath the water surface. A common
violation is bilge discharge. Use rags or sponges
to soak up fuel or oily waste, then dispose of it
properly ashore. If there is much fuel or oil in the

bilge, contact a knowledgeable marine service to
remove it. Never pump contaminated bilge
overboard. Help protect your waters.
FOR BOATS WITH VACUFLUSH® HEADS ONLY
Fill tank(s) less than rated capacity. Allow for
fuel expansion.
Do not place facial tissues, paper towels or sanitary
napkins in head. Such material can damage the waste
disposal system and the environment.
! CAUTION
B. WASTE DISPOSAL
•
•
Many areas prohibit overboard sewer
discharge. Close and disable flow-through
waste systems to prevent discharge in such
areas.
Bag all refuse until it can be disposed of ashore.
Regulations prohibit disposal of plastic
anywhere in the marine environment and restrict
other garbage disposal within specified
distances from shore.
NOTICE
• There is a possibility of being fined for having an
operable direct overboard discharge of waste in
some waters. Removing seacock handle, in closed
position, or other means must be used to avoid fine.
• It is illegal for any vessel to dump plastic trash
anywhere in the ocean or navigable waters of the
United States.
C. EXCESSIVE NOISE
Many areas regulate noise limits. Even if there
are no laws, courtesy demands that boats
operate quietly.
D. WAKE / WASH
! WARNING
SPEED HAZARD - Watch your wake. It might capsize
a small craft. You are responisble for damage caused
by your wake.
Power boat wakes can endanger people and
vessels. Each power boat operator is responsible
for injury or damage caused by the boat’s wake.
Be especially careful in confined areas such as
channels or marinas. Observe “no wake” warnings.
! CAUTION
The Coast Guard is requiring any ocean-going
boats 40 feet or larger to have a written “waste
management” plan on board. While the
requirement is aimed at commercial and
passenger ships, there is no exception for
recreational boats. “Ocean-going” means any
boat going beyond the three-mile coastal U.S.
boundary. The written plan can be as simple as:
Reduce speed in congested waterway.
Be alert for No Wake markers.
All vessel refuse is placed in trash bags which
are stored on board until they can be disposed
of in dumpsters on shore. This policy is
reviewed by all crew and passengers. The
person in charge of carrying out the plan is:

PERSONAL INJURY OR DEATH
MRP 852566
AVOID COLLISIONS
In all gasoline powered boats, engine and generator exhaust
systems produce colorless and odorless carbon monoxide gas
(“CO”). Direct prolonged exposure can result in CO poisoning
which may be harmful or fatal. To prevent excess exposure and
reduce the possibility of accumulations of CO in the cabin and
cockpit of the boat, the operator should insure adequate ventilation
in each the cabin and cockpit areas, through utilization of cabin
hatches, cabin doors, cabin windows, cockpit windshield windows
and side windshield vents to increase air movement through the
cabin and cockpit areas. The following conditions tend to increase
the accumulation of CO in and about the boat and require the
operator’s particular attention:
1. Operation at slow speeds or dead in the water.
2. Operation with a high bow angle attitude.
3. The utilization of canvas tops, side curtains and back
curtains.
4. Contributing climatic condtions, such as a head wind.
5. Operation of engines and/or generator inconfined
spaces or at dockside.
6. Any blockage of hull exhaust outlets.
Indications of excessive exposure to CO concentrations may
include nausea, dizziness and drowsiness.

SECTION 2 • GENERAL BOAT ARRANGEMENT
For long term storage, use flat, wide belt-type slings
and spreaders long enough to keep pressure from
gunwales. Do not place slings where they may lift
on underwater fittings.
1. DOCKING/LIFTING/TRAILERING
! CAUTION
Do Not use cleats for lifting.
BOW AND STERN CLEATS: (See Figure 2.1.1)
Cleats must not be used for lifting the boat, they
are intended for docking or mooring use only.
BOW AND STERN EYES: (Figure 2.1.1). The bow
eye must be used to haul the boat onto a trailer.
The stern eyes must be used as tie down points for
trailering the boat. The bow and stern eyes may be
used for short term lifting of the boat such as for
service. Long term lifting with the bow and stern
eyes may cause stress on the fiberglass and gel
coat.
A. SUPPORTING THE BOAT
A cradle is the ideal support for the boat whenever
it is not in the water. Properly designed and
constructed, it will provide support at the proper
points, which is essential to avoid stress on the hull.
Boat placement on the cradle should line up as
closely as possible to the sling tags on the side of
the deck. Do not rest boat on underwater fittings.

! WARNING
Boat motion can be erratic.
You can fall overboard or be injured by hitting
something in or on the boat.
All persons must be in cockpit area or cabin and be
prepared for sudden boat movement.
Use front or bow deck area only during anchoring,
mooring or emergencies.
! WARNING
Wet decks are slippery.
You can be seriously injured if you slip and fall.
Wear slip resistant footwear secured to your feet and
hold on to rails or boat structure.
WRONG (GAP)
While the person at the wheel must alert
passengers before any sudden or erratic boat
movement, such as crossing wakes, rapid turns,
sudden acceleration or deceleration, etc., an
emergency action may be necessary before
passengers can be warned. All passengers
must be prepared for rapid boat movement and
be able to hold on to prevent loss of balance.
2. When persons are on the working deck area,
for anchoring, mooring or in emergencies, they
must be holding on and be positioned so as to
prevent falling. In bad weather and/or rough
water, if it is essential to be on deck, persons
should be closely tied to cleats, railing
stanchions or other securely fastened boat
hardware.
3. Engines must be turned off if the boat is near
swimmers or persons are on the swim platform
or the swim ladder.
1. When the boat is moving, all passengers must
be in the cockpit area or in the cabin and must
be on seating provided or, if standing, holding
on firmly (See Figure 2.2.1).

3. PROPULSION SYSTEM
Your boat is equipped with a stern drive propulsion
system also known as an inboard-outboard engine
(Figure 2.3.2). This type of propulsion system has
the engine inside the boat secured to the hull’s
stringers at the rear end of the hull. The stern drive
unit, also called the lower unit because it hangs
below the hull, is part of the propulsion system that
attaches to the outside of the hull or transom. The
stern drive unit pivots to steer the boat.

8. DESCRIPTION
CONTROLS
OF
MAJOR
A. GEAR SHIFT AND THROTTLE CONTROL
The shift/throttle control unit for the engine activates
by the the shifting mechanism and the throttle. The
control must be in neutral position to start your
engine. Moving the lever forward first engages the
forward gear. Further forward movement increases
engine speed and propeller RPM, moving the boat
faster. To shift to reverse, bring the control lever
back to the neutral position, then move it further
back to engage the reverse gear. Further rearward
movement of the lever increases engine speed and
propeller RPM, moving the boat faster in reverse.
GEAR SHIFT AND THROTTLE CONTROL
(FIG. 2.10.1)
FORWARD GEAR
(PUSH LEVERS FORWARD)
POWER TRIM
SWITCHES
The throttle control adjusts the RPM of the engine
and thus, the rotational speed of the propeller.
Regulating the RPM of the engine controls the
speed of the boat.
Forward motion creates forward moving water
called a “following” wake. If the boat is moving
forward and the shift/throttle is moved quickly from
forward to reverse, the boat will stop rapidly and
then move backward. The following wake continues
to move forward and can rise above the transom
and flood the boat.
! CAUTION
NEUTRAL/IDLE
(MOVE LEVERS TO CENTER)
(INCREASE SPEED BY
MOVING LEVERS
FURTHER FORWARD)
The “Throttle Only” mechanism (Figure 2.10.1) may
differ from one style gear/throttle unit to another.
Refer to your Gear Shift & Throttle Manual for proper
operation of this feature.
Cockpit can fill with water if boat is moving forward,
when it is put into reverse.
Before shifting into reverse, shift to neutral, wait for
boat to stop moving forward, then shift into reverse.
REVERSE GEAR
(PULL LEVERS
BACKWARDS)
(INCREASE SPEED
BY MOVING
LEVERS FURTHER
BACKWARDS)
Do not shift into reverse to quickly. Wait for the
following wake to dissapate.
B. POWER TRIM UNIT AND GAUGE
The power Trim allows the operator to raise and
lower the stern drive unit while underway to provide
the ideal boat angle (in relation to water surface)
for a given load and water condition (Figure 2.8.2).
“THROTTLE ONLY” BUTTON
(PORT ENGINE)
(PUSH IN AND HOLD WHILE
MOVING SHIFT LEVER FORWARD)
“THROTTLE ONLY” BUTTON
(STARBOARD ENGINE)
(PUSH IN AND HOLD WHILE
MOVING SHIFT LEVER FORWARD)
Shift/throttle controls are equipped with a “throttle
only” mechanism which allows the shift mechanism
to be disengaged from the throttle. There is one for
each engine on the left and right sides of the control
base. This allows the throttle to be advanced without
shifting the transmission when starting. It may be
necessary to use the “throttle only” button in order
to pump fuel into the engine for ease in starting.
2.10
Trimming UP rotates the stern drive and propeller
away from the transom. Trimming DOWN rotates
the stern drive and propeller closer to the transom.
When the stern drive is trimmed DOWN, the bow
of the boat is being forced down. If the trim is in the
full DOWN position when accelerating from idle to
plane, the boat will plane faster with less bow rise.
Once on plane, the stern drive unit can be trimmed
UP slightly. This will raise the bow of the boat slightly
and increase speed. You will need to try small
differences in the stern drive position to determine
the trim position you prefer under various conditions.

mechanism that raises the lower unit will stop
operating at the end of the upward travel. To bring
the drive unit down into boating position, push the

STERN DRIVE

If you raise the stern drive up to far while you are
on plane, you could cause a loss of speed and
power due to condition called propeller “ventilation.”
If this happens, there will be a sudden increase in
engine RPM and loss of speed. Do not let this
condition exist. Immediately reduce your engine
RPM and trim the outdrive DOWN slightly until
engine slows down and you regain forward speed.
The trim gauge indicates the position of the stern
drive relative to the transom.
REFER TO YOUR ENGINE OPERATOR’S
MANUAL FOR PROPER TRIM GAUGE SETTING.
C. TRAILER SWITCH
The trailer switch (power trim switch) (Figure 2.9.2)
is not to be confused with the power trim function.
The trailer switch is to be used only when the
engines are OFF.
D. TRIM TABS
The trim tabs (Figure 2.12.1) are DIFFERENT from
the stern drive unit trim control. The trim tabs are
two flat plates, hinged below the water line on the
transom at the rear and are raised and lowered
hydraulically by using the rocker switches located
at the helm. (Figure 2.8.1).
The trim tabs are used to adjust the sideways listing
of the boat due to uneven loading, a strong cross
wind or propeller torque. The twisting effect of
propeller torque is especially pronounced when
running the engine at high horsepower output. To
correct the listing, adjust the trim tabs to level the
boat. When the boat is level, right to left, the steering
effort will be the same for right and left turns.
Lower the trim tabs on the listing (lower) side by
pushing the top half of the rocker switch in one-half
second bursts until the boat is righted.
The trailer switch allows the drive unit to be raised
for trailering, beaching and launching. To operate,
press and hold the trailer switch (Figure 2.11.2) until

Using both switches to lower both tabs on a sideto-side balanced boat will lower the bow, when on
plane, if the rear of the boat is highly loaded. Again,
use only short bursts of the rocker switches to adjust
the trim.
When running at cruising speed, the trim tabs
should be fully up, unless the rear is heavily loaded.
In heavy following seas or when running in an inlet,
best maneuverability is obtained with a bow high
attitude. To be sure the tabs are full up, push the
bottom halves of the rockers for several seconds.

E. ENGINE ALARM SYSTEM
(ONLY ON CERTAIN ENGINES)
! CAUTION
Always check oil pressure and water gauges while
moving, even if your engine has an alarm.
Shut down engine immediately if gauges are not in
normal ranges, or alarm sounds.
Do not restart engine until problems are corrected.
The engine Operator’s Manual will tell you if your
engine is equipped with an audible alarm and how
to use it.
The alarm indicates a problem with engine water
temperature, oil pressure and/or stern drive oil level.

A. TACHOMETER AND HOUR METER
The tachometer indicates the revolutions per minute
(RPM) of the engine. (It does not indicate the speed
of the boat.) Your Engine Operator’s Manual
indicates the maximum full throttle RPM at which
your engine should operate. This must not be
exceeded or serious engine damage will occur. The
tachometer should also be used to determine the
most comfortable and economical cruising RPM.

The hourmeters measure cumulative hours of
operating time. The hourmeter should be used to
keep a careful log of engine maintenance as well
as performance data and fuel consumption. Do not
leave ignition key ON with the engines off, as this
will increase the engine hours on the hourmeter.
B. OIL PRESSURE, WATER

FUEL GAUGES
AND
These gauges function on your boat the same way
they do on your car or truck. You must continually
check these gauges visually to make certain there
are no engine system problems even if your boat
engine has an alarm system.

After your compass has been professionally
adjusted. You will be given a deviation card or chart
indicating the correction to be applied when laying
out a compass course or making navigational
calculations. Keep this correction card or chart
at the helm.
NOTE: The compass adjustment is only good for
the equipment arrangement that existed at the time
of the adjustment. If you place different equipment
or remove equipment from the vicinity of the
compass, you cannot rely on the compass reading.
The compass must be readjusted by a qualified
person after equipment is added or removed from
the vicinity of the compass.

Your compass (See Figure 2.7.2), properly
corrected, will indicate magnetic North (not true
North). A compass must be adjusted by a qualified
person. The reason for this is that nearby
instruments or objects containing magnets or
current-carrying electrical wires will influence the
compass reading. This is especially true if you add
electronic devices to the helm station.
NOTE: The compass roses shown on navigational
charts have both true North and magnetic North
directions superimposed. Make certain you plot
course compass directions from the magnetic North
compass rose.
When not in use, the compass should be protected
from excessive and prolonged sunlight. If your
compass becomes sluggish or erratic, it should be
serviced by an authorized repair station.
To keep the plexiglass dome free from scratches,
remove salt deposits and dust with a damp cloth.
An occasional treatment with paste wax will help
preserve the dome surface.

4. BOARDING
! WARNING
Wet decks are slippery.
You can be seriously injured if you slip and fall.
Wear slip-resistant footwear secured to your feet and
hold onto rails or boat structure.
FILLING THE TANKS
•
Check the fill plate label to ensure that fuel is
placed ONLY in the fuel tank. The fuel fill plates
are located on the aft port and starboard sides
of your boat (Figure 3.2.1).
•
DO NOT overload the boat.
•
Board one person at a time and give assistance
as needed.
•
Keep nozzle in contact with fuel fill opening at
all times during fueling.
•
•
Listen as tank fills and stop adding fuel before
it spills from the vent. Fuel must have room for
expansion.
Transfer gear and equipment by handing it from
a person on the dock to a person on board. You
can lose your balance and be injured if you
attempt to board while carrying equipment or
gear.
•
•
Fill both port and starboard fuel tanks.
Distribute the weight of equipment and
passengers as evenly as possible to keep the
boat balanced.
•
Stow gear and equipment so that it is
accessible, but everything is to be stored in
places so as to prevent it from flying about if
the boat encounters rough water or weather.
AFTER FILLING
•
DO NOT wash spilled fuel overboard. Wipe up
any spill with rags or paper towels and dispose
of them properly on shore.
•
Open engine compartment and check for fuel

Before starting the engines, open engine
compartment and check for gasoline smell.
Children less than sixteen (16) years of age and
all non-swimmers, adults as well as children,
must wear properly-sized PFDs at all times
when aboard.
ALL passengers should wear PFDs. By the time
someone falls overboard, it can be to late for
them to put on a PFD and fasten it properly.
This is especially true in colder waters, below
70oF, where survival time, before hypothermia
sets in, is measured in minutes.
If there are passengers not wearing PFDs, the
PFDs must be readily accessible. “Readily
accessible” means out of the storage bag and
unbuckled.
All throwable flotation devices (cushions, rings,
etc.) must be right at hand.

7. STARTING THE ENGINES
The operator may have to make rapid changes
in speed and/or direction to avoid a problem,
with little or no time for alerting passengers. It
is critical that all passengers be seated in the
designated seating areas and holding on to
prevent falling overboard or getting knocked
about in the boat at all times when the boat is
underway.

If you smell gasoline, do not start engine; get
everyone off the boat and get trained help to find
and fix the problem.
If there is no gasoline smell, perform checks specified
by manual, then and only then, close engine
compartment and run blower for at least 4 minutes
before starting.
The engine operation and maintenance manual
furnished with your boat describes pre-start and
starting procedures. We urge you to thoroughly read
and understand your engine manual.
Listed below are basic pre-start and starting
reminders. These are not a substitute for the engine
manufacturer’s specific recommendations.
Open the engine compartment and check for the
smell of gasoline.

Unlike your automobile
engine which is naturally
ventilated even when it is
not moving, your boat
engine compartment (the bilge) does not have
sufficient natural ventilation when the boat is not
moving or moving slowly. That is why the engine
compartment must have forced ventilation,
using the bilge blower, to remove potentially
explosive gasoline vapors, before the engine is
started and when the boat is moving slowly.
Because it may be difficult to remember to turn
on the bilge blower every time you slow down
the boat, it is recommended that the bilge blower
run all the time the engine is running.

! WARNING
Regulations prohibit discharging fuel or oily waste
in navigable waters. Discharge is defined as any
action which causes a film, sheen or discoloration
on the water surface, or causes a sludge or
emulsion beneath the water surface. A common
violation is bilge discharge. Use rags or sponges
to soak up fuel or oily waste, then dispose of it
properly ashore. If there is much fuel or oil in the
bilge, contact a knowledgeable marine service to
remove it. Never pump contaminated bilge
overboard.
Fill fuel tank(s) less than rated capacity. Allow for
fuel expansion.
SINKING HAZARD – Ensure the bilge pumps are
operating properly.
! CAUTION
Run bilge pumps in the manual position only as
long as necessary to remove water. Running bilge
pumps dry can damage the pump motor.

from the hull discharge (See Fig. 2.8.1). If the bilge
has more liquid than normal, see Maintenance
Section for locating and correcting the problem.
Except for checking the operation of the bilge pump
using the ON position, leave the switch in the OFF
(AUTO) position. In the OFF (AUTO) position, when
the bilge liquid is deep enough to activate the float
switch, the bilge pump turns on and pumps out the
bilge liquid until the float switch drops and shuts off
the pump.
4.2
Frequently inspect the area under the float switches
to ensure they are free from debris and gummy bilge
oil. To clean, soak in heavy duty bilge cleaner for
10 minutes, agitating several times. Check for
unrestricted operation of the float. Repeat the
cleaning procedure if necessary.
Inspect the bilge pump intakes and keep them
free of dirt or material which may impede the
flow of water through the pump. To clean the
pump strainer, depress the lock tabs on both sides
of the pump and lift the pump motor.
D. BILGE BLOWERS
To prevent buildup of gasoline fumes to the
explosive level in the engine compartment, the
bilge blowers must be run for at least four (4)
minutes before starting the engine and kept
running at all times when the engine is running to
insure that there will be adequate ventilation when
you are moving slowly.
The bilge blower is protected by a breaker in the
electronic interface module located in the engine

it is clear to the rear, and then reverse the
propeller after going through a weedy area to
unwrap and clear away any weeds which may
have accumulated. If this doesn’t clear the
entanglement, and you can’t anchor or moor
the boat in shallow water to get to the stern drive
in the water, the boat will have to be taken out
of the water.

2. VIBRATION & CAUSES
Some vibration is to be expected in your boat
because of the action of the engines and the
propeller. But excessive vibration indicates
conditions which must be promptly corrected to
300 Sundancer® (335 Sundancer®)
3. IMPACT TO STERN DRIVE
The stern drive can be damaged by impact, either
while trailering or boating. To minimize the
possibility of impact damage while trailering, keep
the stern drive raised to the trailering position.
The hydraulic system used to raise and lower the
stern drive can cushion impact and lessen damage
from head-on impacts to the stern drive from
underwater objects BUT ONLY when the boat is
moving forward. There is no protection if the
sterndrive is struck during revers operation or from
an angle when moving forward.
If you strike a submerged object, STOP THE
ENGINE as soon as possible and examine the stern
drive unit for damage. Even if no damage is visible,
there could be internal problems or difficulty
maneuvering. If you must use the boat after impact,
run at the lowest speed possible.

fueling information. Take time to read all the fuel
related information in the owner’s manual.
The 300 Sundancer® standard gasoline fuel system
consists of two fuel tanks with a total capacity of
170 gallon (643 liters), fuel tank vent, electric fuel
valves, engine fuel supply line and fuel fill (Figure
5.1.2).
The fuel tank vent
serves as a pressure/
vacuum release and
safety overflow. The
thru-hull fitting has a
flame arrester, making it
imperative that you
keep the screen clean
and in excellent repair.
Replace the screen immediately if it becomes
damaged or displaced. Periodically check the vent
to assure that it is not clogged. (Figure 5.1.1).
The fuel pick-up at the fuel tank has an electric fuel
valve to prevent fuel from siphoning out in the event
of fuel line failure.

3. FUELING PRECAUTIONS
Certain precautions must be carefully and
completely observed every time a boat is fueled,
even with diesel fuel. Diesel fuel is nonexplosive
but it will burn.
A. GENERAL:
•
Windows, doors, hatches – closed.
•
Smoking material – extinguished.
•
Inboard tanks – grounded.
•
Filler pipe – marked GAS or DIESEL.
•
Fuel nozzle – in contact with filler pipe to prevent
static sparks.
•
Fuel during daylight.
•
•
Check fill plate label to ensure fuel is placed
only in fuel tank. Fuel fill plates are located on
the port and starboard sides of the transom (see
Fig. 5.5.1).
Fill level – fill less than rated capacity of tank;
allow for fuel expansion.
•
Trim – fuel weight distributed equally.
C. AFTER FUELING – CHECKLIST:
•
Avoid spills.
•
Windows, doors, hatches – open.
•
Know your fuel capacity and consumption.
Record the amount of fuel used since your last
fill up, and compute the engine’s hourly fuel
usage. As a fuel gauge backup check, deduct
the average hourly fuel usage from fuel tank
capacity.
•
Sniff test – if fuel fumes remain, operate blowers
until fumes are gone.
•
Fuel tank – secure filler cap.
•
Spills – wipe; dispose of rags ashore.
•
Observe the “Rule of Thirds”: one-third fuel for
trip out, one-third for return and one-third for
reserve.
•
Allow an additional 15 percent fuel reserve when
operating in rough seas.
FUEL FILL LOCATION
(FIG. 5.4.1)
B. BEFORE & DURING FUELING –
CHECKLIST:
•
Fire extinguisher – close at hand.
•
Mooring – boat tied securely to fueling pier.
•
Crew – at least one knowledgeable person
present.
•
Passengers – unnecessary people off the boat.
•
Engines – stopped.
•
Electrical equipment, including blowers – power
off.

SECTION 6 • ELECTRICAL SYSTEM
1. ELECTRICAL SYSTEM
To remove the battery cables:
A. DIRECT CURRENT (DC)
1. Turn off all items drawing power from the
battery.
The 12 volt direct current (DC) electrical system
(similar to that in your car or truck) derives it’s power
from the battery. An engine-driven alternator keeps
the battery in a charged condition. The battery
voltage is indicated by the voltmeter on the helm
panel. The negative terminal of the battery is
attached to the grounding studs of the engine.
2. Turn the battery switch to the OFF position
(Battery switch is optional equipment on some
models).
Ask your dealer for a careful analysis of DC power
needs on your boat. It may be necessary to add
batteries or auxiliary charging methods to supply
adequate power for any additional accessories you
wish to add.
BATTERY MAINTENANCE
3. Remove the negative cable first, then the
positive cable. To replace the cables, first
replace the positive cable, then the negative.
•
Check the fluid levels in the cells approximately
every 4 weeks, and weekly in summer and hot
zones.
•
The fluid level must be between the lower and
upper markings.
•
Replenish only with distilled water. Do not use
metal funnel.
•
Coat battery terminal clamps with silicone
grease. Keep batteries clean and dry.
BATTERIES
! DANGER
DO NOT USE JUMPER CABLES IN THE
ENGINE COMPARTMENT.
They can cause an explosion from sparks.
! DANGER
A battery will explode if a flame or spark
ignites the free hydrogen given off during
charging.
Never use an open flame or strike sparks
in the battery area.
The battery installed in your boat has been selected
for it’s ability to furnish starting power based on
engine starting requirements, as well as it’s ability
to power the DC accessories attached to the
electrical system. Your Engine Owner’s Manual
indicates the recommended battery for the engine
installed in your boat.
! CAUTION
To prevent arcing or damage to the alternator,
always disconnect battery cables before doing any
work on the engine’s electrical system.
300 Sundancer® (335 Sundancer®)
Battery life is shortened if it is drained to zero charge
before recharging. It is recommended that a battery
not be discharged more than 50 percent. If the
battery does become run down, recharge it as soon
as possible.
Running the engine to recharge the battery may
not be effective. The alternator only creates
charging power at higher engine speeds, so simply
idling or trolling will not generate enough power to
recharge the battery.
If you need to charge a battery, use only a battery
charger designed to charge automotive/marine
batteries. Use charger only when batteries are
disconnected from the boat’s electrical circuit.
Follow the charger instructions.
If the boat is equipped with dockside power and an
AC/DC converter/battery charger, keep it on when
shore power is available. This will keep the batteries
properly charged and allow use of all DC powered
equipment on board without draining the battery.
If your boat will not be used for several weeks or
more, and there is no shore power hookup, remove
the batteries from the boat and connect them to a
charger.

lights and accessories using DC power. The battery
switches are located on the port side of the cockpit
(Figure 6.6.1).
NOTE: The bilge pump and stereo memory are not
shut off by the battery switch. This is to permit the
bilge pump to operate at any time excess fluid
accumulates in the bilge, which can occur when
the boat is docked and unattended. The entire
remaining DC system is turned off with the battery
switch.

Use ONLY Marine-rated parts to replace such items
as starters, distributors, alternators, generators, etc.
Do not use automotive parts for these components
or any jumper cables because they are not ignitionprotected and could cause a fire or explosion.
Protective terminal covers, such as rubber boots
on electrical connections, must be in place when
engine is operating or when working in the engine
comparrtment.
Jumper cables are not ignition-protected. DO NOT
USE jumper cables in the engine compartment. The
engine compartment may accumulate dangerous
explosive gasoline fumes/vapors and hydrogen gas
from batteries being charged. A spark produced
when connecting a jumper cable can cause an
explosion.
3. BREAKERS
AND/OR
FUSES
If you need to replace a fuse or breaker, use only
the same amperage as the original. It is
recommended that you carry spare fuses. See
pages 6.5, 6.7, 6.9 & 6.10 for the proper breaker
and/or fuse sizes.
If a fuse or breaker is replaced with one of lower
amperage, it will not be sufficient to carry the
electrical load of the equipment it is connected to
and will cause nuisance fuse failure or breaker
tripping.
ON
TO
GASOLINE VAPORS CAN EXPLODE

O
! WARNING
Use of higher amperage fuses or breakers is a fire
hazard.
Use fuses and breakers having the same amperage
rating as the original or as specified.
2. IGNITION PROTECTION
All electrical components in the engine compartment
must be ignition-protected to avoid the possibility
of creating sparks in a gasoline environment.
6.4
If a fuse or breaker is replaced with one of higher
amperage, it will not provide adequate protection
against an electrical malfunction and will create a
fire hazard.

The emergency start system utilizes a momentary
switch, located on the control station switch panel
and an emergency start solenoid, located in the
engine room. Holding the switch energizes the
solenoid which parallels the batteries to assist in
starting. Use emergency start when the charge of
one bank if batteries is insufficient to start its
corresponding engine. To engage the emergency
start system, start whichever engine has sufficient
battery power, then hold emergency start switch
while starting the other engine.
Your boat has a 12 volt accessory receptacle on
the helm panel and in the galley. The receptacle is
a cigarette lighter style plug that may be used with
any 12 volt accessories using this type of plug.

10. AC SYSTEM
! CAUTION
Never operate 120 volt shore power at less than 105
volts.
! DANGER
EXTREME HAZARD – Swimming near a boat
operating on AC electrical system can lead to severe
shock and death. Never swim or allow swimming
when AC system is in use.
11. SHORE POWER
NOTE: Actual usage of equipment will depend on
the amperage output of the power source available.
! CAUTION
Line voltage from the generator or shore power is
shown by the voltmeter on the main distribution
panel.
The main distribution panel main breakers are
equipped with a source selector slide to prevent
the generator and shore power from being
energized at the same time and damaging the
electrical system. Both breakers must be in the OFF
position before switching to an alternate power
source.
The 120 volt wiring installed on Sea Ray® boats
consists of three (3) color-coded wires. The black
wire is the “hot” feed, white is the common, or
neutral, and the green wire is the ground. All branch
! WARNING
Under no circumstances override the source
select system.
breakers and switches for AC equipment are
installed on the “hot” wire. The green conductor of
the shore power is connected through the galvanic
isolator and then connected to the AC grounding
buss bar behind the main distribution panel.
The main breakers may trip if there is a surge in
line voltage, an electrical storm or an onboard
system overload. The main breaker interrupts both
the neutral and hot feeds in the AC circuit to prevent
equipment damage due to internal overloads and
external surges.
6.14
It is imperative that the shore power outlet is dry
before plugging into the dock power inlet.
To hook up shore power:
a. On your boat, turn off the cabin main AC breaker
and all AC branch breakers. Turn off main AC breaker
in the transom compartment.
b. Dry off the shore power cord receptacle on your boat.
Dry off the ends of the shore power cord. Spray a
moisture repellant into the receptacle and cord ends.
Let dry.
c.
On your boat, plug a cord end into the boat
receptacle. Turn clockwise to lock. Thread the
locking ring onto the boat receptacle to prevent
accidental unplugging.
! CAUTION
Route and tie the power cord from the boat to
the dockside power outlet box to prevent
persons tripping over it and the cord falling in
the water.
! CAUTION
Shore power cord should be secured or routed to
avoid laying or falling into water and to avoid stress
on shore power plug and inlet.

15. BATTERY CHARGER / CONVERTER
The battery charging unit located on the forward
bilge bulkhead is fully automatic and is designed
specifically for the marine environment. The high
frequency characteristic has allowed these chargers
to achieve a huge size and weight reduction over
their previously used equipment. Commonly called
high frequency or smart chargers, these units bring
a new sophistication to the battery charger field.
These units feature a built-in amperage indicator
located on the front panel. This gives an accurate
reading of the combined battery current and load
current. If the batteries are fully charged and no
load is present, the ammeter will read near zero.
To verify that the charger is functioning properly,
turn on lights or other load. The ammeter should
register and increase.
•
Float Charge - this stage is designed to hold
the battery at a safe, low voltage (typically
13.3V) providing up to the chargers full rated
amperage to accommodate DC load
requirements. The charge will remain in this
mode until the AC power is cycled off and then
on again.

NOTICE
Leave the converter running at all times to
maintain the 12 volt system voltage.
Charging characteristics contain three (3) elements:
•
Bulk Charge - this is initiated at power up and
provides the chargers full-rated current to the
battery bank until a predetermined voltage level
of 14.2V to 14.4V is achieved and/or a certain
time has passed.
•
Absorption Charge - this stage immediately
follows the bulk charge mode. It maintains the
battery voltage at the bulk charge voltage level,
but gradually decreases the current as the
battery accepts the charge until it reaches a
predetermined current level.

Persons with heart problems or other conditions
which make them susceptible to electric shock may
still be injured by ground faults on circuits protected
by the GFI receptacle. No safety devices yet designed
will protect against all hazards or carelessly handled
or misused electrical equipment or wiring.
The GFI receptacle is designed to protect
people from the line-to-ground shock hazards
which could occur from defective power tools
or appliances operating from this device, or
from down-line outlets protected by it. It does
not prevent line-to-ground electric shock, but
does limit the time of exposure to a period
considered safe for normally healthy persons.
It does not protect persons against line-to-line
or line-to-neutral faults.
The GFI receptacle does not protect against
short circuits or overloads. This is the function
of the circuit breaker.

18. ELECTROLYTIC CORROSION
ZINC ANODES
Zinc anodes require replacement about every six months,
if the boat is operated in salt water. In fresh water, the
zinc anodes can be replaced about once a year.
If the anodes deteriorate more rapidly than this, there is
probably a stray current problem within the boat or at the
slip or mooring.
If the anodes do not deteriorate, they are not protecting
the other metallic parts of your boat. This can be caused
by loose anodes or by low grade zinc or by not having a
solid electrical contact between the anode and the metal
it contacts, or by paint on the anodes.
NOTICE
DO NOT PAINT BETWEEN THE ZINC AND THE
METAL IT CONTACTS, AND DO NOT PAINT OVER
THE ZINC.
ZINC PLATES ON TRIM TABS
(FIG. 6.21.1)
AND
Electrolytic corrosion of metals on power boats can result
in rapid and serious deterioration of metal parts. You
must set a regular schedule and look for the possibility
of electrolytic corrosion (the deterioration of metals due
to dissimilar characteristics when placed in salt water).
It is your responsibility to check for and replace parts
damaged due to electrolytic corrosion.
To minimize electrolytic corrosion of the metals on your
boat, zinc anode plates are provided on your boat to
protect underwater hardware. Zinc, being much less
"noble" than the copper-based alloys and aluminum used
in underwater fittings, will deteriorate first and protect the
other metals.
300 Sundancer® (335 Sundancer®)
Stern drives are fitted with zinc anodes on their lower
units (refer to your Engine Owner's Manual for their
locations). If your boat is equipped with trim tabs, zinc
plates are installed on each of the trim tabs. (See Figure
6.9.2.) If boat is equipped with Mercathode® stern drive
may not have zincs.
TRIM TABS
ZINC ANODE
6.21
SECTION 6 • ELECTRICAL SYSTEM
If the anodes are deteriorating rapidly, or not at all, contact
your dealer.
When an AC shore power system is connected to the
boat, the underwater metal fittings will, in effect, be
connected through the water to grounded metals ashore.
This results in the zincs being consumed at a faster rate
unless the marina maintains a protective system to
prevent this. When the marina provides a zinc anode in
the water bonded to the metal outlet box on the dock,
zinc loss on the boat will be reduced. Do not connect
this zinc to the boat's ground system.
It is extremely important that all electrically-operated DC
equipment and accessories be wired so that the ground
polarity of each device is the same as that of the battery.
Your boat has a negative ground system. The zinc anode
is connected to every metal item in the boat (fuel tanks,
underwater gear, etc.) via the green bonding wire.
! CAUTION
Never disconnect the green wire (safety ground) from
the engine terminal.
Electrolytic corrosion can also be caused by "stray
currents" due to a fault in an electrical item, even though
correctly grounded. A galvanic current isolator (zinc
saver) is standard on all Sea Ray® boats. It is installed
between the shore power ground and the boats' AC
grounding connection to the DC bonding system. This
connection maintains the safety ground from dockside
power while stopping the flow of DC corrosive currents.
19.MARINE ELECTRONIC CATHODIC
ANTI-CORROSION SYSTEM
(MERCATHODE®)
The automatically controlled Cathodic Anti-Corrosion
System for marine installation protects underwater metals
from the effects of corrosion and electrolysis on stern
drives. The system components are designed for marine
service. DO NOT PAINT THE MERCATHODE ®
SYSTEM.
The anode and reference electrode are attached to the
electrode assembly under each stern drive unit. The
solid state controller is mounted within a plastic housing
on the transom in the bilge.
Maintenance
The Mercathode® system must be tested to ensure
adequate output. The test should be performed every
100 hours or annually. Contact your authorized Sea Ray®
dealer to arrange for this test. Refer to the engine
operator's manual for more detailed information.

3. WATER SYSTEM
The fresh water system consists of a 35 gallon
(132.5 liter) water tank, 12 volt water pump, water
system filter, water heater and a distribution
manifold.
The fresh water system is activated by the WATER
PUMP breaker on the cabin DC distribution panel
(Figure 6.7.1).
To begin initial operation:
1. Fill the water tank from a source known to
provide safe, pure drinking water by removing
the cap marked WATER located on the port
deck walkway and inserting the water hose
nozzle in the opening. Do not mistake the fuel
fill or the waste plate for the water tank fill cap.
4. Shut off faucet as flow becomes fee of air.
Shutting off the faucet will cause the pump to
shut off. As long as the water pump and battery
switches are on, the pump will automatically
provide water on demand.
A. SANITIZING THE WATER SYSTEM
If the fresh water system has not been used for
some time, or if you suspect that it has been
contaminated, then it should be sanitized. Your
marine dealer may have a water treatment additive
that can be used to sanitize the system. Follow the
instructions provided with the additive.
If a water treatment additive is not available, the
following steps may be followed to sanitize the water
system:
2. Turn ON the WATER PUMP breaker.
1. Pump the water tank empty. Shut OFF water
system switch.
3. Open the sink faucet to allow any air trapped in
the water line to dissapate.
2. Determine the capacity of your water tank (your
standard water tank holds 35 gallons (132.5

liters)). You will need approximately one (1)
gallon of weak bleach solution for each fifteen
(15) gallons of tank capacity.
3. Prepare the proper amount of a weak bleach
solution by mixing 1/4 cup of unscented
household chlorine bleach per gallon of water.
4. Pour weak bleach solution into the water tank.
Remember, use about one (1) gallon of weak
bleach solution for each fifteen (15) gallons of
tank capacity.
5. Fill the remainder of the tank with fresh, clean
water. This will further dilute the weak bleach
solution.
7. Allow the sanitizing solution to stand in the water
system for three (3) hours.
8. Pump the water tank empty.
9. Fill the water system completely with fresh,
clean water. Turn on the faucet and permit the
entire contents of fresh, clean water to run
through the system. This will flush the sanitizing
solution out of the plumbing.
10. Fill the water system again, with fresh, clean
water, and turn on the faucet to permit the air to
dissapate.
Your water system is now sanitized.
6. Switch ON the water system switch, then turn
on the faucets and allow the air to be exhausted
from the plumbing system. By doing this, the
entire fresh water system will be filled with a
sanitizing solution.

A. REQUIREMENTS
FOR
OPERATORS
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
standards state that in freshwater lakes, freshwater
reservoirs or other freshwater impoundments
whose inlets or outlets are such as to prevent the
ingress or egress by vessel traffic subject to this
regulation, or in rivers not capable of navigation by
interstate vessel traffic subject to this regulation,
marine sanitation devices certified by the U.S. Coast
Guard installed on all vessels shall be designed and
operated to prevent the overboard discharge of
sewage, treated or untreated, or of any waste
derived from sewage. The EPA standards further
state that this shall not be construed to prohibit the
carriage of Coast Guard-certified flow-through
treatment devices which have been secured so as
to prevent such discharges. They also state that
waters where a Coast Guard certified marine
sanitation device permitting discharge is allowed
include coastal waters and estuaries, the Great
Lakes and interconnecting waterways, freshwater
lakes and impoundments accessible through locks,
and other flowing waters that are navigable
interstate by vessels subject to this regulation (40
CFR 140.3).
C. HOLDING TANK OPERATION
Waste from the head is directed into the holding
tank located in the engine room. The holding tank
fluid level indicator is located on the main distribution
panel or in the head which indicates 3/4 FULL, FULL

MAINTENANCE
Prior to each use and at regularly scheduled
intervals (see Section 11 – Service Guide), cycle
the macerator seacock handle open and shut to
ensure proper operation of the seacock.
E. MACERATOR (OPTIONAL)
The macerator gives the
boat operator the means of
discharging the holding
tank contents directly
overboard through a
seacock in the bottom of
the hull. This option is
available in conjunction
with the dockside pump
out. DISCHARGE OF SEWAGE DIRECTLY
OVERBOARD IS FOR USE ONLY WHERE
APPROVED.
MACERATOR
(FIG. 7.9.1)
NOTICE
There is a possibility of being fined for having an
operable direct overboard discharge of waste in
some waters. Removing the seacock handle, in the
closed position, or other means must be used to
avoid fine.
It is illegal for any vessel to dump plastic trash
anywhere in the ocean or navigable waters of the
United States.
Since direct overboard discharge is prohibited in
many areas, the macerator seacock is normally
closed. The macerator seacock is equipped with a
system interlock switch which prevents the
operation of the macerator when the macerator
seacock is closed. The light on the MACERATOR
switch on the DC Distribution Panel will be lighted
when the macerator is operational. If the light is
not lighted, it is visual confirmation the macerator
seacock is closed and that the macerator cannot
be operated. Check that the macerator seacock
handle is in the open position and the light on the
switch is lighted before operating the macerator.

SECTION 8 • REQUIRED INSPECTION, SERVICE AND
MAINTENANCE
Routine inspection, service and maintenance of your
boat’s systems are vital to assure your safety, as
well as for prolonging the life of your boat. You should
develop regular routines for inspecting your boat.
The chart below summarizes inspection, service and
maintenance activities. This section also contains
descriptions of some convenient methods for
evaluating the condition of some of your boat’s
systems.
The interval between necessary service or
maintenance is highly variable, depending on the
environment your boat is in, and on the severity of
operating conditions. For example, corrosion of parts
on boats operated in salt water proceeds much
faster than the corrosion of parts on a boat operated
in fresh water. The intervals listed below are
recommended maximums, and you must reduce the
time between inspections if your observations
indicate the need.

3. INSPECTION, SERVICE AND
MAINTENANCE PROTOCOL
A. BILGE AREA
Many of your boat’s systems have critical features
located in the bilge area. A thorough and organized
inspection of the bilge area will address many of
these critical features. For example, engine oil leaks
and fuel system leaks will show themselves as
contamination on the surface of the liquid that
remains in the bilge. When you see such
contamination, you should look for its source.
Once or twice a year, pump the bilge areas dry and
remove all loose dirt. Be sure that all the limber holes
are open. Limber holes are the openings in the
stringers that allow water to flow from the outboard
areas of the bilge to the bilge sump.
Check the bilge pump float switch by moving it
manually. (Figure 4.1.2) The bilge pump should start
when the float switch is raised and should stop when
lowered. If it does not, have it replaced before using
your boat. The float switch should also move freely
without sticking, if it does not, have it serviced or
replaced before boating.
AND
2. ENGINE
Engine failure or malfunction, when away from
shore, can be dangerous. Make certain you do the
following each time you use the boat:
•
Wipe off the engine to remove accumulated
dust, grease and oil.
•
Check all exposed nuts, bolts and screws for
tightness.
•
Inspect the belts for wear. If they do not require
replacement, check and adjust the belt tension
according to the engine manufacturer’s
recommendation.
•
Inspect engine wiring, and clean and tighten the
terminals on the engine electrical system.
•
Clean and lubricate the battery cables.
•
Add distilled water to the battery cells as
needed.
•
Refer to your Engine Operator’s Manual for
additional engine maintenance requirements.
3. FUEL SYSTEM
! WARNING
•
Inspect the entire fuel system for evidence of
leakage, including the fuel tank fill lines and
vents. Any stain around a joint could be an
indication of a leak.
•
Test all fittings with a wrench to be sure they
are not loose, but do not forcefully overtighten
the fittings.
•
Clean fuel filters and vent screens.
DO NOT USE FLAMMABLE SOLVENTS to clean any
part of the bilge.
Fumes can accumulate and can be the source of an
explosion.
1. OIL
If there is oil contamination, look for leaks in engine
oil lines and engine gaskets. If parts of the bilge
have been stained by oil, the stain can be removed
using a bilge cleaner available from your dealer or
a marine store.
8.4
! WARNING
Work on electrical wiring can create shock hazards
or sparks.
Always shut off battery switch, breakers and/or pull
fuses before checking electrical wiring or connectors.

SECTION 9 • CARE & REFINISHING
Your new boat has been designed to provide you
with years of enjoyment and satisfaction. In order
to maintain the factory new appearance of your boat,
we recommend the use of 3M™ Marine's one step
Maintenance and Reconditioning Products designed
specifically for pleasure boats. Following proper
fiberglass maintenance guidelines will help maintain
your boat's performance, value, and enjoyment.
1. PAINT CLEANING AGENTS & OTHER
SUBSTANCES
! WARNING
2. FIBERGLASS & GELCOAT
The fiberglass hull, deck and some interior parts
consist of a molded shell and exterior gelcoat. The
gelcoat is the outer surface, often colored, that
presents the shiny smooth appearance associated
with fiberglass products. This gelcoat surface is
painted or taped in some areas for styling purposes.
Wash the gelcoat and fiberglass regularly with
clean, fresh water. Wax gelcoated surfaces to
maintain the luster. In northern climates, a waxing
at the start and end of the boating season may
suffice. In southern climates, an application of wax
every three months will be required for adequate
protection.
EXPLOSION/FIRE HAZARD
Care and refinishing materials may contain
ingredients that are flammable or explosive. Do not
use such materials in the bilge
Shut off electrical power and ventilate when using
such materials anywhere on the boat or in the
cabin.
Do not create sparks or use lighted materials.
! WARNING
Gelcoat surfaces are slippery when wet.
Always wear non-slip footwear securely fastened to
your feet and hold on to rails or the boat structrue.
! WARNING
Waxed surfaces are slippery.
Do not use products containing chlorine,
phosphates, perfumes and non-degradable
ingredients. Consult your marine dealer regarding
environmental regulations before painting the hull.
Fumes can last for hours, and chemical ingredients
can harm people, property and the environment.
Common household cleaning agents may cause
hazardous reactions. Read and understand
directions on all paint, cleaning and polishing
materials before using.
Do not wax areas that are usually walked on.
REFER TO THE “3M® ONE STEP MAINTENANCE AND
RECONDITIONING PRODUCTS” PAMPHLET IN
YOUR OWNER’S MANUAL PACKET FOR
INSTRUCTIONS AND WARRANTY INFORMATION.
3. STAINS & SCRATCHES
Although gelcoat and painted surfaces are resistant
to deep stains, a need for cleaning will occasionally
arise. But, the use of some common cleaning agents
will permanently discolor or otherwise damage the
finish on your boat.

9.1
SECTION 9 • CARE & REFINISHING
•
Do not use abrasive porcelain-cleaning
powders. These are too abrasive and contain
chlorine and ammonia, either of which will
permanently discolor gelcoat and paint.
•
Never use nail polish remover (acetone) or any
ketone solvents.
•
Use diluted household detergents to remove
surface soil and stains. Before using a given
brand, check to make sure it contains no
chlorine or ammonia.
•
Alcohol can be used to remove difficult stains.
But it must be promptly washed off with mild
detergent and water.
•
Minor scratches and deeper stains that do not
penetrate the gelcoat may be removed by light
sanding and buffing.
4. PERMANENTLY MOORED
DOCKED BOATS
OR
If permanently moored in salt water or fresh
water, your boat will collect marine growth on
its bottom. This will detract from the boat’s
beauty and greatly affect its performance.
There are two methods of preventing this:
•
Periodically haul the boat out of the water
and scrub the bottom with a bristle brush
and a solution of soap and water.
•
Paint the hull below the waterline with a
good grade of antifouling paint. DO NOT
paint the engine drive surfaces.
NOTE: There are EPA regulations regarding
bottom paint application. Consult your Sea
Ray ® dealer for proper application methods.
9.2
5. CARE FOR BOTTOM PAINT
From time to time a slight algae or slime forms
on all vessels. The bottom painted portion of
the hull can be wiped off with a coarse turkish
towel or a piece of old rug while the boat is in
the water. Do not use a stiff or abrasive
material to clean the bottom paint.
The bottom paint should be inspected annually.
If it needs repainting consult your Sea Ray ®
dealer.
6. TOPSIDE AREAS
A. STAINLESS STEEL AND ALLOY FITTINGS
Stainless steel and alloy fittings should be cleaned
with soap and water or household glass cleaner.
Remove rust spots as soon as possible with a brass,
silver or chrome cleaner. Irreversible pitting will
develop under rust that remains for any period of
time. Never use an abrasive like sandpaper or steel
wool on stainless. These may actually cause rust.
To help protect the stainless, we recommend the
use of a good car wax.
B. SALT CRYSTALS
When instruments are exposed to a saltwater
environment, salt crystals may form on the bezel
and the plastic covers. These salt crystals should
be removed with a soft, damp cloth; never use
abrasives or rough, dirty cloths to wipe plastic parts.
Mild household detergents or plastic cleaners can
be used to keep the instruments bright and clean.
REFER TO THE OWNER'S MANUAL PACKET FOR
INSTRUCTIONS AND WARRANTY INFORMATION.

7. ACRYLIC PLASTIC SHEETING
(PLASTIC GLASS)
Never use a dry cloth or duster or glass cleaning
solutions on acrylic.
To clean acrylic, first flood it with water to wash off
as much dirt as possible. Next, use your bare hand,
with plenty of water, to feel and dislodge any caked
dirt or mud. A soft, grit-free cloth may then be used
with a nonabrasive soap or detergent. A soft
sponge, kept clean for this purpose, is excellent.
Blot dry with a clean damp chamois.
Grease and oil may be removed from acrylic with
kerosene, hexane, white (not aviation or ethyl)
gasoline or aliphatic naphtha (no aromatic content).
Do not use solvents such as acetone, silicone
spray, benzine, carbon tetrachloride, fire
extinguisher fluid, dry cleaning fluid or lacquer
thinner on acrylic, since they attack the surface.
Remove fine scratches with fine automotive acrylic
rubbing and polishing compounds.
8. CANVAS AND CLEAR VINYL
Do not fold or store any of the canvas pieces while
wet. All canvas should be rolled or folded when dry and
stored in a clean, dry place. For clear vinyl pieces, the
recommended methods for storage are rolling or laying
down flat. The clear vinyl should never be folded or
creased as cracking will result. To protect the clear vinyl
from rubbing against itself while rolled or stored flat, place
a piece of very soft, nonabrasive cloth between the
pieces. If the surface of the clear vinyl becomes
scratched, the canvas manufacturer has provided a
canvas care sheet located in your Owner’s Manual
Packet. When storing the rear (aft) curtain, fold the
canvas over the clear vinyl window (do not fold clear
vinyl), then rol or store flat.
The fabric should be cleaned regularly before substances
such as dirt, pollen, etc. are allowed to accumulate on
and become embedded in the fabric. The fabric can be
cleaned without being removed from the installation.
Simply brush off any loose dirt, particles, etc.; hose down
300 Sundancer® (335 Sundancer®)
and clean with a mild solution of a natural soap in
lukewarm water (no more than 100oF, 38oC); rinse
thoroughly to remove soap. DO NOT USE
DETERGENTS. Allow to completely dry.
Wash and clean vinyl windows with a warm soap
solution. Use a soft cloth or sponge and do not scratch
the surface.
If you have stubborn cleaning cases, call your dealer for
proper procedures. Do not try your own cleaning
procedures as they may permanently damage the
canvas.
After each use, especially in salt water areas, rinse the
canvas completely with fresh cold water. Then let the
canvas dry completely before stowing.
All metal components of the canvas should be rinsed
with fresh cold water and exposed components wiped
dry to maintain appearance and working order.
9. EXTERIOR UPHOLSTERY FABRIC
Exterior fabrics should be cleaned with a sponge or very
soft scrub brush and a mild soap and warm water
solution. After scrubbing, rinse with plenty of cold, clean
water and allow the fabric to air dry in a well ventilated
place, preferrably away from direct sunlight.
Mildew can occur if your boat does not have adequate
ventilation. Heat alone will not prevent mildew; you must
also provide for fresh air circulation.
REFER TO THE OWNER'S MANUAL PACKET FOR
INSTRUCTIONS AND WARRANTY INFORMATION.
10. INTERIOR UPHOLSTERY FABRIC
Cleaning and maintenance information provided by the
material manufacturer, is in your Owner’s Manual
Packet.
NOTICE
Always clean spots, stains, etc., immediately. Test
an unseen area of fabric before cleaning stain, to
insure that cleaning material will not cause damage.
