Chapter 1: Welcome Aboard!
Special Care For Moored Boats
NOTICE
• To help seal the hull bottom and reduce the possibility of gelcoat blistering on moored boats,
apply an epoxy barrier coating. The barrier coating should be covered with several coats of
anti-fouling paint.
• Many states regulate the chemical content of bottom paints in order to meet environmental
standards. Check with your local dealer about recommended bottom paints, and about the
laws in effect in your area.
• Whether moored in saltwater or freshwater, your boat will collect marine growth on its hull bottom.
• This will detract from the boat’s beauty, greatly affect its performance and may damage the gelcoat.
• There are two methods of slowing marine growth:
1. Periodically haul the boat out of the water and scrub the hull bottom with a bristle brush and a solution
of soap and water.
2. Occasionally re-paint the hull below the waterline with a good grade of anti-fouling paint.
Sacrificial Anodes (Zincs)
Your boat is equipped with sacrificial anodes (zincs) to protect underwater metal parts from excessive deterioration.
Check the zincs regularly and replace them if they have deteriorated more than 70%.
There are many factors that affect the rate at which the zincs deteriorate, including:
• Water temperature
• Salinity
• Water pollution
Stray 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.
NOTICE
Do not paint between the zinc and the metal surface it contacts and do not paint over the zincs.

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

Chapter 1: Welcome Aboard!
Trip Checklist
❏ Make sure you know where the exhaust outlets are located on your boat.
❏ Educate all passengers about the symptoms of CO poisoning and where CO may accumulate.
❏ When docked, or rafted with another boat, be aware of exhaust emissions from the other boat.
❏ 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 metal exhaust parts for cracking, rusting, leaking, or loosening and 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.
• If your boat will be unattended for an extended period of time, turn Off the
house battery or the CO Monitors will drain the house battery.
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.
• 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.

Navigation & Communication Equipment
The owner’s packet contains manuals for all navigation & communication equipment installed on your boat. Thoroughly read and understand these manuals before using these systems for the first time and observe the following:
VHF Radio
Your boat may include a VHF (Very High Frequency) radio. The VHF radio can be used to access weather reports,
summon assistance or contact other vessels as permitted by the FCC (Federal Communications Commission). Contact the FCC for licensing, rules and regulations concerning VHF radio usage.
Depth Finder
Your boat may be equipped with a depth finder (depth sounder) at the helm station. The depth finder provides you
with measurements of water depth beneath the boat.
!
WARNING!
• Do not use the depth finder as a navigational aid to prevent collision, grounding, boat damage or personal injury.
• When the boat is moving, submerged objects will not be seen until they are already under
the boat. Bottom depths may change too quickly to allow time for the boat to react. If you
suspect shallow water or submerged objects, run the boat at very slow speeds.
Compass
Your boat is equipped with a compass at the helm station. Carefully read and follow the manufacturer’s calibration
and usage instructions provided in the boat’s owner’s packet.
NOTICE
Compass accuracy can be affected by many factors. Have a qualified technician calibrate your
compass. Make sure the technician gives you a deviation card which shows the corrections to
apply in navigational calculations. Keep a copy of the deviation card at each helm.
Global Positioning System (GPS) (If Equipped)
Your yacht may feature a GPS system at the lower helm. GPS receivers provide reliable and accurate position data,
anywhere in the world.
!
WARNING!
The GPS system should not be relied upon as the only aid to navigation. A qualified operator
must monitor the GPS system at all times and keep look-out for other marine traffic and possible collision situations.
NOTICE
Τhe GPS system is only an aid to navigation. It's accuracy can be affected by many factors,
including equipment failure or defects, environmental conditions & improper handling or use.

switches at the helm. Before using the trim tabs read and
(LOCATED AT HELM)
understand the trim tab instructions manual included in
your boat’s owner’s packet.
Observe the following:
• Once cruising speed is reached, the port or starboard
trim switch may be used (one at a time) to level the boat.
• Perform trim tab adjustment with several short touches
to the switch rather than one long one.
• After each short touch allow several seconds for the hull
to react.
• The trim tab hydraulic fluid reservoir is located in the engine compartment. The fluid level must be checked periodically (at least once a year) and refilled as necessary.

Chapter 2: Components/Systems
Propulsion
Engine
The owner’s packet contains detailed engine operation and maintenance manuals. Be sure to read and understand
these manuals before using or performing maintenance to the engine.
Engine Access
The engine compartment can be accessed through the aft cockpit engine hatch.
Engine Room Ventilation System
The bilge blower removes fumes from the engine compartment
and draws fresh air into the compartment through the deck vents.
To ensure fresh air circulation, use the bilge blowers for at least

Marine Head with Holding Tank
Your boat comes equipped with a marine head (toilet) and waste holding tank system. Read the manufacturer’s
instructions and maintenance manual (included in your boat’s owner’s packet).
• The marine head installed on your boat uses seawater to flush waste from the toilet. The seawater intake valve
(seacock) is located below the middle entry step.
• Waste is routed directly from the head to the holding tank.
• The holding tank is plumbed to a fitting on the deck for dockside pump-out.
• You can determine the content level of the holding tank by looking at the tank located in the engine compartment.
Empty the holding tank at every opportunity.
• If you are unable to pump water into the bowl, the probable cause is debris in the pump diaphragm. To remedy
this, shut Off the seawater intake valve (seacock) and dismantle the pump. The pump is generally held together
with six screws (the design is simple and the problem will be obvious when the pump body is split open).
Using the manual flush marine head:
1. Open the head’s seawater intake valve (seacock).
2. Before using the head, pump enough water into the bowl to wet the sides.
After use, pump until the bowl is thoroughly cleaned. Continue pumping a few more times to clean the lines. If
excess waste causes the water to rise in the bowl, stop pumping until the water recedes.

breakers on the AC panel.
• Run the bilge blower for a minimum of four minutes before starting the generator. Leave the blower on while the
generator is running unless the boat is running at cruising speed.
• Make sure the generator’s seawater pickup seacock is Open before starting and during running of the generator.
• The generator’s starter switch and breakers are located on the AC electrical panel.
• Gas generator: Simultaneously press the oil pressure button and turn the starter switch until the generator starts.
• Service the filters attached to the generator as directed in the manufacturer’s manual.
• The generator’s coolant mixture consists of equal parts of water and antifreeze (Ethylene Glycol). Check coolant
(anti-freeze) levels often at the generator-mounted expansion tank and at the coolant recovery bottle, located near
the generator.
• Check the generator’s seawater strainer for leaks and clean out debris (see the Seawater Strainer section of
