Safety information

The safe use and operation of this boat is dependent upon the use of proper operat- ing techniques, as well as upon the com- mon sense, good judgment, and expertise of the operator. Every operator should know the following requirements before operating the boat. Before operating the boat, read the own-

ers/operators manual, the Operation In- struction card, and all labels on the boat. Also, watch the Basic Orientation Video provided with your boat. These materials should give you an understanding of the boat and its operation.

Never allow anyone to operate this boat un- til they too have read this owners/opera- tors manual, the Operation Instruction card, and all labels, and, if possible, watched the Basic Orientation Video. Showing them the video may help reinforce the information contained in these materi- als.

Limitations on who may operate the boat

Yamaha recommends a minimum operator age of 16 years old. Adults must supervise use by minors. Know the operator age and training require- ments for your state. A boating safety course is recommended and may be re- quired in your state. You can find local rules by contacting the United States Coast Guard (USCG), the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators, or your local Power Squadron.

This boat is designed to carry the operator, up to 7 passengers, and cargo. Never ex- ceed the maximum load limit or allow more than 8 persons (or 7 persons if the wake- boarder or water-skier is being pulled) to ride in the boat at any time. Weight distribu- tion affects performance. Keep weight in the boat low and evenly distributed from side-to-side and bow-to-stern. Remove any unnecessary cargo and store it on shore.

Maximum load: Total weight of cargo, operator, and passengers:

658 kg (1450 lb) Total weight of operator and passen- gers:

526 kg (1160 lb)

Cruising limitations Scan constantly for people, objects, and

other watercraft. Be alert for conditions that limit your visibility or block your vision of others.

Operate defensively at safe speeds and keep a safe distance from people, objects, and other watercraft.

Do not follow directly behind other water- craft.

Do not go near others to spray or splash them with water.

Avoid sharp turns or other maneuvers that make it hard for others to avoid you or un- derstand where you are going.

Avoid areas with submerged objects or shallow water.

Take early action to avoid collisions. Re- member, boats do not have brakes.

Do not pull the remote control lever back to idle when trying to steer away from ob- jectsyou need throttle to steer. Always check throttle, shift, and steering controls for proper operation before starting boat.

Operate within your limits and avoid ag- gressive maneuvers to reduce the risk of loss of control, ejection, and collision.

This is a high-performance boatnot a toy. Sharp turns or jumping wakes or waves can increase the risk of back/spinal injury (pa- ralysis), facial injuries, and broken legs, an- kles, and other bones. Do not jump wakes or waves.

Do not operate the boat in rough water, bad weather, or when visibility is poor; this may lead to an accident causing injury or death. Be alert to the possibility of adverse weath- er. Take note of weather forecasts and the prevailing weather conditions before setting out in your boat.

Never operate in water that is less than 90 cm (3 ft) deep from the bottom of the boat, otherwise you increase your chance of hitting a submerged object, which could result in injury.

Leave a float plan with a responsible per- son on shore. Tell where you plan to go and when you plan to arrive, and provide a de- scription of your boat. Advise this person if your plans change and also when you ar- rive to prevent false alarms. A sample float plan is included on page 129.

Follow navigation rules and state and local laws that apply to your boat.

Operational requirements All riders must wear a Coast Guard-ap-

proved personal flotation device (PFD).

1 PFD

Eye protection is recommended to keep wind, water, and glare from the sun out of your eyes while you operate your boat. Re- straining straps for eyewear are made which are designed to float should your eyewear fall in the water.

Footwear is recommended. Never operate the boat after consuming al-

cohol or taking drugs. For reasons of safety and proper care of the

boat, always perform the pre-operation checks listed on page 80 before operating the boat.

Passengers must always sit in a designated seating area, place feet on the deck, and hold on to the handgrips when the boat is in motion.

Always consult your doctor on whether it is safe for you to ride in this boat if you are pregnant or in poor health.

Do not attempt to modify this boat. Modifications to your boat may reduce safe- ty and reliability, and render the boat unsafe or illegal to use.

Attach the engine shut-off cord (lanyard) to the PFD and keep it free from the steering wheel or other controls so that the engine stops if the operator accidentally leaves the helm. Failure to attach the engine shut-off cord (lanyard) could result in a runaway boat if the operator is ejected. After operation, remove the engine shut-off cord (lanyard) and the main switch key to avoid accidental starting or unauthorized use by children or others.

1 Engine shut-off switch 2 Engine shut-off cord (lanyard)

Scan constantly for swimmers and stay away from swimming areas. Swimmers are hard to see and you could accidentally hit someone in the water.

Avoid being hit by another boat. You should always take responsibility to watch for traf- fic; other boaters may not be watching for you. If they do not see you, or you maneu- ver more quickly than other boaters expect, you risk a collision.

Maintain a safe distance from other boats and watercraft, and also watch for ski ropes or fishing lines. Obey the Rules of the road, and be sure to check behind you be- fore making a turn. (See Rules of the road on page 17.)

Required equipment The U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) has regula- tions which describe minimum standards of safety. You must comply with these regula- tions, which apply to boats like your boat which are less than 26 feet long. Personal flotation devices (PFD):

Type I, II, or III as required for all people on board (see Operational requirements for more information), plus at least one Type IV (throwable type).

Fire extinguisher: At least one B-1 type hand-held portable fire extinguisher.

Visual distress signals: It is recommended that a USCG-approved pyrotechnic device be stored on your boat. A mirror can also be used as an emergency signal. Contact your Yamaha Boat Dealer or the Coast Guard for more information.

Sound signalling device: Your boat is equipped with a horn that can be used to signal other boats. See Rules of the road for more information.

Navigation lights: Your boat is equipped with navigation lights for use between sunset and sunrise, and during periods of reduced visibility, such as fog. Be sure these lights are working and are turned on when necessary (see pages 45 and 64 for more information).

Additional equipment recommendations

The following equipment can help make your boating experience safer and more enjoyable: Mooring fenders and lines. Anchor with suitable line (a Danforth type

anchor and line that is at least 6 times the depth of the water where you will drop an- chor are recommended).

Manual-type bilge pump. First-aid kit. Waterproof flashlight with extra batteries. Tool kit with assorted screwdrivers, pliers,

wrenches (including metric sizes), and electrical tape.

Oar or paddle (look for one with a boat hook on the other end).

Spare parts, such as fuses. Navigation charts for the waters where you

will be boating. Tow-rope.

Hazard information Never start the engine or let it run for any length of time in an enclosed area. Exhaust fumes contain carbon monoxide, a colorless, odorless gas that may cause loss of con- sciousness and death within a short time. Al- ways operate the boat in an open area. It is also important to have the engine off when anyone is using the ladder on models equipped with one because of the carbon monoxide in the exhaust gases coming from underneath the step.

Boat characteristics Jet thrust turns the boat. Moving the remote

control lever completely back to idle or the neutral position produces only minimum thrust. If you are traveling at speeds above trolling, you will have rapidly decreasing ability to steer without throttle. You may still have some turning ability immediately after moving the remote control lever back to idle, but once the engine slows down, the boat will no longer respond to steering wheel input until you apply throttle again or you reach a trolling speed. Practice turning in an open area without obstructions until you have a good feel for the maneuver.

This Yamaha boat is water-jet propelled. The pump is directly connected to the en- gine. This means that the jet thrust will pro- duce some movement whenever the engine is running. The boat has a neutral position, but since the boat is always pro- ducing thrust while the engine is running, some forward or reverse movement may occur.

Do not use the reverse function to slow down or stop the boat above trolling speed as it could cause you to lose control, be ejected, or impact the steering wheel or oth- er parts of the boat. This could increase the risk of serious injury. It could also damage the shift mechanism.

Reverse can be used to slow down or stop during slow-speed maneuvering, such as when docking. Once the engine is idling, shift to reverse and gradually increase en- gine speed. Make sure that there are no ob- stacles or people behind you before shifting into reverse.

Keep away from the intake grate while the engine is on. Items such as long hair, loose clothing, or PFD straps can become entan- gled in moving parts, resulting in severe in- jury or drowning.

Never insert any object into the jet thrust nozzle while the engine is running. Severe injury or death could result from coming in contact with the rotating parts of the jet pump.

1 Intake grate 2 Jet thrust nozzle

Stop the engine and remove the clip from the engine shut-off switch before removing any debris or weeds, which may have col- lected around the jet intake. (See page 120 for more information.)

Night operation When using your boat before dawn or after dusk, you must have both bow and stern lights operating. When at anchor in the dark, the stern light must be lit. See pages 45 and 64 for instructions.

Wakeboarding and water-skiing You can use the boat to tow a wakeboarder or water-skier, using the ski tow hook provided. It is the boat operators responsibility to be alert to the safety of the wakeboarder or wa- ter-skier and others. Know and follow all state and local regulations in effect for the waters in which you will be operating. The following are some important consider- ations for minimizing risks while pulling a wakeboarder or water-skier. The wakeboarder or water-skier should

wear an approved PFD, preferably a bright- ly colored one so boat operators can see the person being pulled.

The wakeboarder or water-skier should wear protective clothing. Severe internal in- juries can occur if water is forced into body cavities as a result of falling into the water or while reboarding. Normal swimwear does not adequately protect against forceful wa- ter entry into the rectum or vagina. The per- son being pulled should wear a wetsuit bottom or clothing that provides equivalent protection. Such clothing includes thick, tightly woven, sturdy, and snug-fitting ap- parel such as denim, but does not include spandex or similar fabrics, like those used in bicycle shorts.

A second person should be on board as a spotter to watch the wakeboarder or water- skier; in most states, it is required by law. Let the person being pulled direct the oper- ators control of speed and direction with hand signals. Be sure the seat is locked in place (see page 51) before getting under- way.

When preparing to pull the wakeboarder or water-skier, operate the boat at the slowest possible speed until the boat is well away from the person being pulled and slack in the tow-rope is taken up. Make sure that the rope is not looped around anything. After checking that the wakeboarder or wa- ter-skier is ready and that there is no traffic or other obstacles, apply enough throttle to raise the person.

Make smooth, wide turns. The boat is capa- ble of very sharp turns, which could exceed the abilities of the wakeboarder or water- skier. Keep the person being pulled at least 50 m (164 ft), about twice the distance of a standard tow-rope, away from any potential hazard.

The operators of boats and other watercraft may not be aware that you are pulling a wakeboarder or water-skier. Together with the spotter, pay attention to others around you and cruise at safe speeds.

Be alert to the hazard of the tow-rope han- dle snapping back at the boat when the wakeboarder or water-skier falls or is un- able to get up on the skis.

Rules of the road Your Yamaha boat is legally considered a powerboat. Operation of the boat must be in accordance with the rules and regula- tions governing the waterway on which it is used. Just as there are rules that apply when you are driving on streets and highways, there are waterway rules that apply when you are oper- ating your boat. These rules are used interna- tionally, and are also enforced by the United States Coast Guard and local agencies. You should be aware of these rules, and follow them whenever you encounter another vessel on the water. Several sets of rules prevail according to geo- graphic location, but are all basically the same as the International Rules of the Road. The rules presented here in this owners/opera- tors manual are condensed, and have been provided for your convenience only. Consult your local U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary or De- partment of Motor Vehicles for a complete set of rules governing the waters in which you will be operating your boat. Steering and sailing rules Whenever two vessels on the water meet one another, one vessel has the right-of-way; it is called the stand-on vessel. The vessel that does not have the right-of-way is called the give-way or burdened vessel. These rules determine which vessel has the right-of-way, and what each vessel should do. Stand-on vessel The vessel with the right-of-way has the duty to continue its course and speed, except to avoid an immediate collision. When you main- tain your direction and speed, the other vessel will be able to determine how best to avoid you.

Give-way vessel The vessel which does not have the right-of- way has the duty to take positive and timely action to stay out of the way of the stand-on vessel. Normally, you should not cross in front of the vessel with the right-of-way. You should slow down or change directions briefly and pass behind the other vessel. You should al- ways move in such a way that the operator of the other vessel can see what you are doing. The General Prudential Rule regarding the right-of-way is that if a collision appears un- avoidable, neither boat has the right-of-way. Both boats must avoid the collision. In other words, follow the standard rules ex- cept when a collision will occur unless both vessels try to avoid each other. If that is the case, both vessels become give-way vessels. Rules when encountering vessels There are three main situations that you may encounter with other vessels which could lead to a collision unless the Steering Rules are fol- lowed: Meeting: you are approaching another vessel head-on. Crossing: you are traveling across another vessels path. Overtaking: you are passing or being passed by another vessel.

In the following illustration, your boat is in the center. You should give the right-of-way to any vessels shown in the white area (you are the give-way vessel). Any vessels in the shad- ed area must yield to you (they are the give- way vessels). Both you and the meeting ves- sel must alter course to avoid each other.

Meeting If you are meeting another power-driven ves- sel head-on, and are close enough to run the risk of collision, neither of you has the right-of- way. Both of you should alter course to avoid an accident. You should keep the other vessel on your port (left) side. This rule does not ap- ply if both of you will clear one another if you continue on your set course and speed.

Crossing When two power-driven vessels are crossing each others path close enough to run the risk of collision, the vessel which has the other on the starboard (right) side must keep out of the way of the other. If the other vessel is on your starboard (right) side, you must keep out of its way; you are the give-way vessel. If the other vessel is on your port (left) side, remember that you should maintain course and direction, provided the other vessel gives you the right- of-way, as it should.

Overtaking If you are passing another vessel, you are the give-way vessel. This means that the other vessel is expected to maintain its course and speed. You must stay out of its way until you are clear of it. Likewise, if another vessel is passing you, you should maintain your speed and direction so that the other vessel can steer itself around you.

Other special situations There are three other rules you should be aware of when operating your boat around other vessels. Narrow channels and bends When navigating in narrow channels, you should keep to the right when it is safe and practical to do so. If the operator of a power- driven vessel is preparing to go around a bend that may obstruct the view of other water vessels, the operator should sound a pro- longed blast of four to six seconds on the horn. If another vessel is around the bend, it too should sound the horn. Even if no reply is heard, however, the vessel should still pro- ceed around the bend with caution. Fishing vessel right-of-way All vessels fishing with nets, lines, or trawls are considered to be fishing vessels under the International Rules. Vessels with trolling lines are not considered fishing vessels. Fish- ing vessels have the right-of-way regardless of position. Fishing vessels cannot, however, impede the passage of other vessels in nar- row channels. Sailing vessel right-of-way Sailing vessels should normally be given the right-of-way. The exceptions to this are: (1) When the sailing vessel is overtaking the

power-driven vessel, the power-driven vessel has the right-of-way.

(2) Sailing vessels should keep clear of any fishing vessel.

(3) In a narrow channel, a sailing vessel should not hamper the safe passage of a power-driven vessel that can navigate only in such a channel.

Reading buoys and other markers The waters of the United States are marked for safe navigation by the lateral system of buoyage. Simply put, buoys and markers have an arrangement of shapes, colors, num-

bers, and lights to show which side of the buoy a boater should pass on when navigat- ing in a particular direction. The markings on these buoys are oriented from the perspective of being entered from seaward (the boater is going towards the harbor). Red buoys are passed on your starboard (right) side when proceeding from open water into port, and black buoys are to your port (left) side. An easy way to remember the meaning of the colors is the phrase red right returning. When navigating out of the harbor, your posi- tion with respect to the buoys should be re- versed; red buoys should be to port and black buoys to starboard. Many bodies of water used by boaters are en- tirely within the boundaries of a particular state. The Uniform State Waterway Marking System has been devised for these waters.

This system uses buoys and signs with distinctive shapes and colors to show regulatory or ad- visory information. These markers are white with black letters and orange borders. They signify speed zones, restricted areas, danger areas, and general information.

Remember, markings may vary by geographic location. Always consult local boating authori- ties before riding your boat in unfamiliar waters.

Boat Education and Training The Online Boating Safety Course, available through the watercraft section of the yamaha- motor.com website, is a free, 50-question learning course available to the public. Upon successful completion of 80 percent or better, the user can request a certificate of comple- tion by mail or can download one immediate- ly. The Online Boating Safety Course, provided by the Boat/US Foundation, is ap- proved by the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators (NASBLA) and recognized by the United States Coast Guard. This course meets the education re- quirement for those states that recognize non- proctored, NASBLA-approved courses.

Enjoy your boat responsibly You share the areas you enjoy when operat- ing your boat with others and with nature. So your enjoyment includes a responsibility to treat these other people, and the lands, wa- ters, and wildlife with respect and courtesy. Whenever and wherever you are boating, think of yourself as the guest of those around you. Remember, for example, that the sound of your boat may be music to you, but it could be just noise to others. And the exciting splash of your wake can make waves others wont enjoy. Avoid riding close to shoreline homes and waterfowl nesting areas or other wildlife areas, and keep a respectful distance from fishermen, other boats, swimmers, and populated beaches. When travel in areas like these is unavoidable, operate slowly and obey all laws. Remember that pollution can be harmful to the environment. Do not refuel or add oil where a spill could cause damage to nature. Keep your surroundings pleasant for the peo- ple and wildlife that share the waterways: dont litter! When you go boating responsibly, with re- spect and courtesy for others, you help en- sure that our waterways stay open for the enjoyment of a variety of recreational opportu- nities.

Control function operation

Boat control functions Engine shut-off switch

WARNING

Always attach the engine shut-off cord (lanyard) to your PFD before starting the engine. Failure to attach the cord could result in a runaway boat if the operator is ejected.

Do not attach the cord to clothing that could tear loose. Do not route the cord in such a way that it could become entan- gled, preventing it from functioning.

Avoid accidentally pulling the cord dur- ing normal operation. Once the engine has stopped, you have no steering con- trol of the boat which could result in an accident. Also, without engine power, the boat could slow rapidly from planing speed. This could cause people and ob- jects in the boat to be thrown forward, which could cause injury.

The clip on the end of the engine shut-off cord (lanyard) must be attached to the engine shut- off switch for the engine to run. The cord must be attached to a secure place on the opera- tors PFD. Should the operator fall overboard or leave the helm, the cord will pull out the clip, stopping ignition to engine. This will prevent the boat from running away under power.

1 Engine shut-off switch 2 Clip 3 Engine shut-off cord (lanyard)

Battery switches (190 FSH Sport/ 190 FSH Deluxe) The batteries and switch assembly are locat- ed in the battery compartment. This boat uses two marine batteries. One bat- tery is designated as the start battery. The start battery is connected to the starter circuit on the engine to provide current for the starter motor. The other battery is designated as the house battery. The house battery provides power for the various accessory circuits on the boat, such as the circuits for the lighting, bilge pump, blowers and audio system.

There are three switches on the battery switch assembly: the START switch, HOUSE switch, and EMERG PARALLEL switch.

1 HOUSE switch 2 EMERG PARALLEL switch 3 START switch

In normal operation, keep the START and HOUSE switches in the ON (green) position. Keep the EMERG PARALLEL switch in the OFF (red) position. This setting allows both batteries to be charged automatically while the engine is running. NOTICE: Do not turn the HOUSE switch to the OFF (red) posi- tion if the boat is moored in the water as it will prevent the bilge pump and stern light from functioning. If the start battery is discharged, turn the EMERG PARALLEL switch to the ON (green) position to start the engine. Once the engine is started or the start battery is charged, turn the EMERG PARALLEL switch to the OFF (red) position.

Battery switch (190 FSH) The battery switch is located in the battery compartment. Turn the battery switch to the OFF (red) posi- tion when the boat will not be used again right away. Turning the switch to the OFF (red) po- sition will prevent the battery from being

drained if another electrical switch is acciden- tally left in the on position. NOTICE: Do not turn the battery switch to the OFF (red) po- sition if the boat is moored in the water as it will prevent the bilge pump and stern light from functioning.

1 Battery switch

Main switch The main switch controls the ignition and electrical circuits as follows:

1 Main switch

OFF: Ignition circuit is switched off. The engine can- not be started, but other switches will operate. (The main switch key can be removed.) ON: Ignition circuit is switched on. (The main switch key cannot be removed.)

START: The starter motor will turn to start the engine. (When the main switch key is released, it re- turns automatically to ON.)

TIP: The engine will not start when the clip is re-

moved from the engine shut-off switch. The starter motor will turn over without the cord attached.

The main switch will not operate (the starter motor will not turn over) if the START bat- tery switch in the battery compartment is turned to the OFF (red) position. (See page 29 for more information.)

Remote control lever

WARNING

Before shifting, make sure there are no swimmers or obstacles in the water near you.

When operating in reverse, go slowly. Do not open the throttle more than half. Otherwise, the boat may become unsta- ble, which could result in loss of control and an accident.

Do not shift into reverse while traveling at planing speeds. Loss of control, boat swamping, or damage to the boat could occur.

A single lever controls both throttle and shift- ing. Moving the remote control lever forward from the neutral position shifts into the forward position, and then as the lever is moved far- ther, accelerates the engine for more thrust. Moving the lever back from the neutral posi- tion shifts into the reverse position, and then as the lever is moved farther, accelerates the engine for more thrust.

1 Neutral position 2 TDE position 3 Forward position 4 Reverse position 5 Shift 6 Fully closed 7 Throttle 8 Fully open

TIP: This boat is equipped with a start-in-gear protection. The engine will not start unless the lever is in the neutral position.

This boat uses a direct-drive propulsion sys- tem. Therefore, jet thrust is always being pro- duced while the engine is running. The direction of the boat is controlled by the shift gate, which directs the flow of the jet thrust as follows:

Neutral The shift gate is dropped down part way over the jet thrust nozzle. The neutral position bal- ances forward and reverse thrust to help keep the boat from moving, although some move- ment may occur.

1 Shift gate 2 Jet thrust nozzle

Forward When the remote control lever is initially moved to the forward position and the boat is operating at a slow speed, the shift gate is lift- ed up slightly from the neutral position and jet thrust is directed downward at an angle. This function, which is called the thrust directional enhancer (TDE), helps to provide good han- dling response when the steering wheel is turned, even though there is less thrust avail- able at low engine speeds.

1 TDE position

When the remote control lever is moved far- ther forward, the shift gate is lifted all the way up. All jet thrust is to the rear, which moves the boat forward.

1 Shift gate 2 Jet thrust nozzle

Reverse The shift gate is dropped all the way down over the jet thrust nozzle. Jet thrust is redirect- ed toward the bow of the boat, which moves the boat backward.

Steering Your boat can be steered by turning the steer- ing wheel the same direction you wish to trav- el, to the right or left. When the steering wheel is turned, the angle of the jet thrust nozzle at the rear of the craft is changed, and the change in direction of the jet thrust nozzle changes the direction of the boat accordingly. In addition, the direction of the articulating keel changes according to the movement of the jet thrust nozzle.

1 Steering wheel

1 Jet thrust nozzle 2 Articulating keel

Since the strength of the jet thrust determines the speed and direction of a turn, the throttle must always be opened above idle when at- tempting a turn, except at trolling speed. Because boats steer from the stern, the stern of the boat swings out in the opposite direction

of your turn. If you turn to starboard, for exam- ple, the stern of the boat will swing to the left. Keep this in mind when navigating near a per- son in the water, such as a down wakeboard- er or water-skier, or an obstacle, such as a dock.

Tilt lever

WARNING

Never touch the tilt lever during opera- tion, otherwise the steering wheel could suddenly change position, which may lead to an accident.

Be sure the steering wheel is locked in position after adjustment. If the steering wheel is not locked in position, it may suddenly change position during opera- tion, which may lead to an accident.

The tilt lever is located under the steering wheel and is used to adjust the tilt of the steer- ing wheel. There are 5 positions.

1 Tilt lever

To adjust the tilt: (1) Push the lever down, and then move the

steering wheel up or down to the desired position.

(2) The lever will lock into place when the steering wheel is moved into one of the 5 available positions.

Warnings Warnings are audible and visual indicators of a fault condition. A warning will be displayed on the LCD. Warnings on the LCD can be ac- knowledged by pressing the M button. Once acknowledged, the message will disappear and be replaced by an flashing in re- verse video in a corner of the display. To dis- play the warning message again, push the M button and T button simultaneously for 3 sec- onds while is flashing.

Warning definition table The warnings that are displayed on the LCD are listed in the following table.

Engine overheat warning system This model is equipped with an engine over- heat warning system. If the engine starts to overheat, Engine Over Temperature will appear on the LCD. The buzzer also begins to sound. The engine speed is automatically lim- ited to help prevent damage. If this occurs, im- mediately reduce the engine speed, return to shore or maneuver to a safe location, and check for water discharge at the cooling water pilot outlet. The cooling water pilot outlet is located on the starboard side of the hull. Check that water comes out of the outlet while the engine is running, particularly while applying throttle. If you do not see any water at the outlet, cooling water may not be circulating in the engine.

1 Cooling water pilot outlet

TIP: If the cooling water passages in the engine are dry, it will take about 20 seconds for water to reach the pilot outlets after starting.

If water is not circulating, something may be clogging the intake grate. Refer to Jet pump clean-out procedure on page 120.

NOTICE

If the cause of overheating cannot be found and corrected, take special precau- tions to avoid major engine damage while you return to shore. If getting a tow from another vessel is not possible, operate engine just slightly above idle while you return to shore. If you can be towed, refer to Towing the boat on page 123.

TIP: Press the M button on the multi-function ta- chometer to stop the buzzer.

Engine oil pressure low warning If the oil pressure does not rise to specifica- tion, Low Oil Pressure will appear on the LCD and the buzzer will sound. At the same time, the engine speed is automatically limited to help prevent damage. If this occurs, reduce the engine speed, return to shore or maneu- ver to a safe location, and check the engine oil level (see page 75 for engine oil level check- ing procedures). If the oil level is low, add enough engine oil to raise it to the proper lev- el. If the oil level is sufficient, have a Yamaha Boat Dealer check the engine.

Check engine warning If an engine sensor malfunction or a short cir- cuit is detected, Check Engine will appear on the LCD and the buzzer will sound. If this occurs, reduce the engine speed, return to shore, and have a Yamaha Boat Dealer check the engine.

Low/high battery voltage warning If System Battery Voltage Error appears on the LCD and the buzzer will sound, check the battery connections. If the battery connec- tions are clean and tight and the warning indi- cation continues, have a Yamaha Boat Dealer check the charging system.

Low fuel level warning If Low Fuel Level appears on the LCD of the multi-function tachometer, refill the fuel tank as soon as possible. (See page 74 for in- formation on filling the fuel tank.)

Communication error warning If a communication error is detected for a sen- sor or other device, one of the following warn- ing messages will appear on the LCD: Engine Communication Error Speed Communication Error If this occurs, reduce the engine speed, return to shore, and have a Yamaha Boat Dealer check the boat.

Operation and handling requirements

Fuel requirement Fuel

WARNING

Gasoline and gasoline vapors are ex- tremely flammable. To avoid fires and explosions and to reduce the risk of in- jury when refueling, follow these in- structions.

Gasoline is poisonous and can cause in- jury or death. Handle gasoline with care. Never siphon gasoline by mouth. If you should swallow some gasoline, inhale a lot of gasoline vapor, or get some gaso- line in your eyes, see your doctor imme- diately. If gasoline spills on your skin, wash with soap and water. If gasoline spills on your clothing, change your clothes.

NOTICE

Do not use leaded gasoline. Leaded gas- oline can seriously damage the engine.

Avoid getting water and contaminants in the fuel tank. Contaminated fuel can cause poor performance and engine damage. Use only fresh gasoline that has been stored in clean containers.

Gasohol There are two types of gasohol: gasohol con- taining ethanol and that containing methanol. Gasohol containing ethanol can be used if ethanol content does not exceed 10% and the

fuel meets minimum octane ratings. E-85 is a fuel blend containing 85% ethanol and there- fore must not be used in this boat. All ethanol blends containing more than 10% ethanol can cause fuel system damage or engine perfor- mance problems. Yamaha does not recommend gasohol con- taining methanol because it can cause fuel system damage and engine performance problems. To fill the fuel tank: (1) Before refueling, turn off the engine. Nev-

er refuel while smoking, or while in the vi- cinity of sparks, open flames, or other sources of ignition.

(2) Refuel the boat in a well-ventilated area. If the boat is in the water, be sure it is se- curely moored to the fueling dock. All passengers must be out of the boat dur- ing refueling.

(3) Press the fuel tank filler cap button, and then open the fuel tank filler cap.

1 Fuel tank filler cap 2 Fuel tank filler cap button

(4) Slowly add fuel to the fuel tank.

Recommended fuel: Regular unleaded gasoline with a minimum octane rating of 86 (Pump octane number) = (R + M)/2 90 (Research octane number)

Fuel tank capacity: 113 L (30.0 US gal, 25.0 Imp.gal)

(5) Stop filling when the fuel just becomes visible in the bottom of the filler tube. Do not top off the tank, because gasoline could spill out.

(6) Wipe up any spilled fuel immediately. (7) Close the fuel tank filler cap by pushing it

until it locks in place. Make sure that the fuel tank filler cap is securely closed.

Engine Med RX Fuel Additive As the fuel mixture burns in your engines combustion chambers, carbon deposits are left behind. Over time, these deposits can re- duce performance and even cause engine damage. Marine engines tend to run at lower operating temperatures than other engines, making them more likely to accumulate these harmful deposits. Engine Med RX, available from your Yamaha Boat Dealer, is formulated to remove existing deposits and, when used continuously, pre- vent new ones from forming, while also help- ing to keep fuel injectors and other fuel system components clean for proper perfor- mance and longer engine life.

Engine oil requirement Engine oil

NOTICE

Use only 4-stroke engine oil. Usage of 2- stroke engine oil could result in severe en- gine damage.

Select an oil grade according to the average temperatures in the area where the boat will be used.

TIP: When the engine is operated at high speeds, some engine oil may be consumed. Be sure to check the engine oil level. Checking the engine oil

WARNING

Engine oil is extremely hot immediately af- ter the engine is turned off. Coming in con- tact with or getting any engine oil on your clothes could result in burns.

Draining the bilge water on water This model is equipped with a self-draining deck and bilge pump to drain the bilge water on water.

Self-draining deck Most water which enters the deck area drains automatically out the stern through the large drain holes in the deck. A one-way check valve in each drain prevents water from traveling back to the deck while the boat is moored or moving in reverse.

Bilge pump Your boat is equipped with a drainage system that channels water that enters the boat from the storage compartments to the bilge under the engine compartment. When the bilge pump switch and the battery switch are turned on, the bilge pump will detect when there is excessive water in the bilge and will automat- ically drain most of it through the bilge water outlet. For normal operation, turn the bilge pump switch on during boat use and turn it off when leaving the boat. NOTICE: If the boat is to be left in the water after use, leave the bilge pump switch and the battery switch in the on position. The pump will activate if needed to drain any water accumulating in the bilge.

Fire extinguisher check As an inboard boat less than 26 feet in length, your boat must be fitted with one B-1 type fire extinguisher when navigating waters con- trolled by the U.S. Coast Guard. In addition, most state and local boating laws require that

the craft carry a USCG-approved fire extin- guisher whenever the boat is operated. Make sure at least one fire extinguisher is aboard and full; two fire extinguishers are rec- ommended. See the instructions supplied by the extinguisher manufacturer to determine the indication of the condition. A fire extinguisher is not standard equipment with this boat. If you do not have a fire extin- guisher, contact your local Yamaha Boat Dealer or fire extinguisher dealer for one meeting the proper specifications.

Storing the fire extinguisher One fire extinguisher is to be mounted in the lockable storage compartment. The fire extin- guisher recommended for this location is a chemical-type extinguisher with a capacity of two pounds or more.

If you choose to have two fire extinguishers, the other fire extinguisher is to be mounted in the underseat storage compartment (port). There is a location label outside the compart- ment. This fire extinguisher located near the engine compartment should be a clean agent type designed to displace oxygen, with an inert gas, such as CO2, or FE-36, and have a capacity of five pounds or more.

Operating the fire extinguisher A chemical-type fire extinguisher may not help when sprayed into the engine compart- ment through the FIRE-PORT because that type needs to be aimed directly at the base of the flames to be effective. See below for FIRE-PORT information.

1 FIRE-PORT

A FIRE-PORT is mounted below the lean- ing post. Use this port to spray the contents of a fire extinguisher into the engine compart- ment if a fire breaks out in the engine area. WARNING! If there is a fire in the engine compartment, opening the hatch will add more oxygen to the fire, increasing the risk of a larger fire or an explosion. If you see smoke or otherwise suspect a fire, you can look through the transparent flaps of the FIRE-PORT to look for signs of flames. If there is a fire, push the nozzle of the fire ex- tinguisher through the FIRE-PORT and fol- low the manufacturers instructions to empty the contents of the fire extinguisher into the engine compartment. A clean agent type fire extinguisher is rec- ommended; a chemical-type fire extinguisher may not be adequate in this application.

Access port cap check Make sure that the access port cap is secure- ly installed. To check the access port cap: (1) Open the rear platform hatch. (See page

59 for information on the rear platform hatch.)

(2) Make sure that the access port cap is se- curely installed. If it is removed or is not locked, securely install it. (See page 120 for information on the access port cap.)

Take the time to learn the basic techniques well be- fore attempting more difficult maneuvers. Boating with your new boat can be a very en- joyable activity, providing you with hours of pleasure. But it is essential to familiarize your- self with the operation of the boat to achieve the skill necessary to enjoy boating safely. Before operating this boat, read this own- ers/operators manual, the Operation Instruc- tion card, and all labels on the boat. Pay particular attention to the safety information beginning on page 10. Also, watch the Basic Orientation Video provided with your boat. These materials should give you an under- standing of the boat and its operation. This boat is designed to carry one operator and up to 7 passengers.

Learning to operate your boat Before boating, always perform the pre-oper- ation checks listed on page 80. The short time spent checking the boat will reward you with added safety and reliability. Know and follow U.S. Coast Guard, state, and local laws when operating your boat. Select a wide area to learn in, where visibility is good and other boat traffic is light. Keep the proper distance from other boats and vehi-

cles. Do not operate where people are swim- ming.

Always attach the engine shut-off cord (lan- yard) to your PFD before operating. You and all other passengers must always wear a USCG-approved PFD when riding in the boat. You should consider wearing water shoes, eye protection, and other protective apparel. Water sports increase your risk of in- jury from contact with your boat, other ves- sels, docks, rocks, or coral. Grip the steering wheel firmly and keep both feet on the deck when driving the boat.

Starting the engine

WARNING

Severe injury or death may result if you ig- nore any of the following: Before operating your boat, become fa-

miliar with all controls. Consult a Yamaha Boat Dealer about any control or function you do not fully understand. Failure to understand how the controls work could cause an accident or prevent you from avoiding an accident.

Gasoline vapors can explode. Before starting the engine, check the engine compartment for gasoline, gasoline va- pors, and loose electrical connections, and then operate the blower for at least 4 minutes. Do not start the engine or op- erate the blower if you can smell gaso-

line vapors in the engine compartment or if there are any loose electrical con- nections. Contact a Yamaha Boat Dealer if there is a problem you cannot locate or correct.

Attach the engine shut-off cord (lanyard) to your PFD before operating. Failure to attach the cord could result in a runaway boat if the operator is ejected.

Do not apply throttle when anyone is at the rear of the boat. Turn the engine off or keep it at idle. Water and debris exit- ing the jet thrust nozzle can cause se- vere injury.

(1) Always make sure the boat is launched and used in waters that are free from weeds and debris, and at least 90 cm (3 ft) deep from the bottom of the boat. WARNING! Never operate in water that is less than 90 cm (3 ft) deep from the bottom of the boat. You increase your chance of hitting an underwater ob- stacle. You could be injured. Pebbles or sand can also be sucked into the jet intake, damaging the impeller.

NOTICE

There are two hull drain plugs at the bot- tom of the stern. Check the O-rings on the hull drain plugs and make sure that the plugs are tightened securely before

launching the boat. Otherwise, water may flood the boat and cause it to submerge.

1 Hull drain plug

(2) Turn the battery switch to the ON (green) position.

(3) Push the blower switch to operate the blower and ventilate the engine compart- ment for at least 4 minutes.

TIP: The engine will not start when the clip is re- moved from the engine shut-off switch. The starter motor will turn over without the cord at- tached. (5) Put the remote control lever in the neutral

position. The starter motor will not oper- ate unless the remote control lever is in neutral. Turn the main switch key to the start position and release it when the en- gine starts. If the engine does not start af- ter 5 seconds of cranking, release the key. Wait at least 15 seconds before try- ing to start the engine again.

NOTICE

Never turn the main switch key to the start position while the engine is run- ning. The starter mechanism could be damaged.

If the starter motor is engaged continu- ously for more than 5 seconds, the bat- tery will become quickly discharged and it will be impossible to start the engine. The starter motor may also be damaged if it is engaged continuously for more than 5 seconds.

On this boat, the engine is connected directly to the drive unit. Starting the engine gener- ates some thrust immediately. Only enough throttle should be applied to keep the engine at a fast enough idle to stay running.

Stopping the engine

WARNING

Once the engine has stopped, you have NO STEERING CONTROL over the boat. You could collide with another boat, a dock, or other obstacle.

Stopping the engine immediately after operat- ing at high engine speeds is not recommend- ed. Let the engine cool off at idle or low speed for a few minutes first. To stop the engine: (1) Return the remote control lever to the

neutral position. (2) Turn the main switch key to the off posi-

tion.

TIP: The engine can also be stopped by pulling the engine shut-off cord (lanyard). (3) Remove the main switch key and the en-

gine shut-off cord (lanyard) if the boat will be left unattended.

Leaving a dock Because boats steer from the stern, the stern first moves in the direction opposite your de- sired turn. It is especially important to under- stand this characteristic when leaving a dock. If you move the remote control lever to the for- ward position and simply turn the steering wheel to steer the bow away from the dock, as you would when driving a car out of a parking space, you will drive the stern of the boat into the dock. The following steps are basic maneuvering techniques which can be used in most circum- stances: (1) With the engine idling and the bow still

moored to the dock, turn the steering wheel toward the dock. Moving the re- mote control lever into the TDE position or forward position will start to move the stern of the boat away from the dock.

(2) When the stern is out a few feet, release the bow mooring, and then turn the steer- ing wheel to the center position or away from the dock. Move the remote control

lever into the reverse position and move away from the dock.

Turning the boat

WARNING

Do not pull the remote control lever back to idle when trying to steer away from objects you need throttle to steer.

Be sure passengers are holding on be- fore making turns. An unprepared pas- senger could lose balance and fall.

Steering control depends on the combination of steering wheel position and the amount of throttle. Water sucked in through the intake grate is pressurized by the impeller in the jet pump. As the pressurized water is expelled from the pump through the jet thrust nozzle, it creates thrust to move and steer the boat. The higher the engine speed, the more thrust is pro- duced. The amount of jet thrust, in addition to the po- sition of the steering wheel, determines how sharply you turn. A. More throttle produces high thrust, so the

boat will turn more sharply.

BLOWER

A

SportsBoat_F3M10.book Page 92 Monday, June 29, 2015 3:43 PM

Operation

93

B. Less throttle produces low thrust, so the boat will turn more gradually.

C. Pulling the remote control lever back to idle or neutral position produces only minimum thrust. If you are traveling at speeds above trolling, you will have rap- idly decreasing ability to steer without throttle. You may still have some turning ability immediately after pulling the re- mote control lever back to idle, but when the engine slows down, the boat will no longer respond to steering wheel input until you apply throttle again or you reach a trolling speed. At trolling speed, the boat can be turned gradually by steering wheel position alone using just the amount of thrust available at engine idle.

D. If the boat is moving and the remote con- trol lever is in neutral position, or if there is no thrust because the engine is stopped, the boat will go straight even though the steering wheel is turned. You need throttle to steer.

Boating with passengers

WARNING

When passengers are on board, make sure they are seated and holding onto the handgrips before you start to accelerate. An unprepared passenger could lose bal- ance and fall.

Your boat is designed for one operator and up to 7 passengers only. Never have more than 8 people in the boat. Passengers must sit in one of the seats and hold onto the handgrips. Passengers should sit so the weight in the boat is balanced from side-to-side and bow- to-stern as much as possible. If the passenger seat in front of the helm is used, be sure the operators view ahead is not obstructed.

Stopping the boat

WARNING

Allow adequate stopping distance. Take early action to avoid collisions. Re-

member, boats do not have brakes. Operate defensively at safe speeds and

keep a safe distance away from people, objects, and other boats to give you time to stop.

Do not shut the engine off when slowing down in case you need engine power to steer away from a boat or other obstacle that comes into your path.

You will lose steering control if you completely pull the throttle back to idle. You need throttle to steer.

Do not use the reverse function to slow down or stop the boat from planing speed as it could cause you to lose con- trol, be ejected, or impact the steering wheel or other parts of the boat. This could increase the risk of serious injury.

The boat is not equipped with a separate braking system. It is stopped by water resis- tance after the remote control lever is moved back to idle. From full speed, the boat stops in approximately 107 m (350 ft) after the remote control lever is moved back to idle. The stop- ping distance varies depending on gross weight, water surface conditions, and wind di- rection. The stated straight-line stopping dis- tance should be used for a reference. The boat slows down as soon as the remote con- trol lever is returned to idle but will coast for a distance before fully stopping. If you are not sure you can stop in time before hitting an ob- stacle, apply throttle and turn in another direc- tion.

Boarding from the water

WARNING

To avoid severe injury or death, do not board from the rear, use swim platform, or swim behind boat if engine is running. Severe internal injuries can occur if wa-

ter is forced into body cavities as a re- sult of being near the jet thrust nozzle.

Exhaust gases coming from underneath the swim platform contain carbon mon- oxide, a colorless, odorless gas which may cause brain damage or death when inhaled. Symptoms include nausea, diz- ziness, and drowsiness.

(1) Be sure the engine is off, and then move to the stern of the boat.

(2) Pull out the ladder and climb up onto the swim platform. (See page 66 for informa- tion on ladder.)

(3) Return the ladder to the stowed position, and then sit in one of the seats provided.

Boarding from a dock or landing jetty (1) Board the boat from the side. One person

should board at a time by stepping into the boat. Never jump in. Avoid stepping on slick gelcoat surfaces on the boats gunwales, especially if wet.

(2) Sit in one of the seats provided and put both feet on the deck.

Docking (1) Make sure no obstructions, boats or

swimmers are close to the boat. Come to a stop before you reach the dock.

(2) Notice how wind and water currents are affecting boat movement as you attach your mooring lines and fenders.

(3) Approach the dock at idle speed. Use re- verse as necessary during slow-speed maneuvering to help control speed and direction. Position the boat according to wind and water conditions. WARNING! Do not use your hand, arm, or other parts of your body to try to keep the boat from hitting the dock. You could be injured if the boat pushes against the dock.

Wind or current pushing boat away from dock: Slowly approach the dock at about a 45 an- gle. Secure the bow to the dock, and then use engine thrust or a boat hook to gently move the stern to the dock.

Wind or current pushing boat toward dock: Slowly maneuver to a shallow angle and allow the boat to move toward the dock.

No wind or current: Approach the dock at a shallow angle. Secure the bow to the dock, and then use engine thrust or a boat hook to gently move the stern to the dock.

Beaching

NOTICE

Small pebbles, sand, seaweed, and oth- er debris can be sucked into the jet in- take and impair or damage the impeller. Always stop the engine before beaching the boat. Be sure the boat is in water 90 cm (3 ft) deep from the bottom of the boat before starting the engine again.

Do not beach the boat on rocky beach- es. The hull gelcoat and exposed pump housings can be damaged.

Pay attention to shifts in tides. Beaching at high tide may make it impossible to re-launch the boat if the tide recedes.

(1) Make sure no obstructions, boats or swimmers are near the beach.

(2) Approach the beach slowly and stop the engine when the water is about 90 cm (3 ft) deep from the bottom of the boat.

Remember: turning is impossible with the engine stopped.

(3) Get out of the boat and pull the bow up on the beach.

(4) When leaving the beach, push the boat out into water that is at least 90 cm (3 ft) deep from the bottom of the boat before starting the engine.

Anchoring

WARNING

Always anchor from the bow. Anchoring from the stern will make the boat un- steady. A strong current can pull a stern- anchored boat underwater.

Select an anchor appropriate for your boat and water conditions. A Danforth (or fluke) type anchor is suitable for most applications; your Yamaha Boat Dealer can help you choose an anchor. (1) Make sure the anchor line is securely tied

to the anchor and to the bow eye or a bow cleat.

(2) Move the boat to the spot where you want to lower the anchor, heading the boat into the wind or current. Stop the boat, and then lower the anchor until it hits bottom.

(3) While keeping tension on the line, slowly back up the boat until you have let out line that is 46 times the depth of the water. For example, if you are anchoring in 10 feet of water, let out 4060 feet of line. Secure the line.

(4) Pull on the line to be sure the anchor is holding. Also, periodically check your boats position against the shoreline to make sure it is not drifting and dragging the anchor. Reset if necessary.

(5) To pull in (weigh) the anchor, start the engine and move forward, keeping ten-

Wind or current

sion on the line as you pull it in. When the anchor line is straight up and down, pull hard to lift the anchor from the bottom material.

(6) If the anchor is stuck on the bottom, try this: Let out a few feet of anchor line and secure the line to the boat, again. Slowly maneuver the boat around the anchor until the anchor pulls loose. Keep the line taut during this procedure.

Crossing wakes and swells You will not always have flat, smooth water. There will be swells and wakes from other boats, etc. The best way to cross wakes and swells is with the least jolt to you and the boat. Small swells are not as difficult to cross as larger swells or wakes. Crossing a sharp wake gives more of a jolt than a broad swell.

To cross a wake or swell, change your speed and choose the angle at which you cross the wake or swell. Usually, a slower speed and quartering the wake (crossing at an angle) will reduce the jolt. Two other things you may notice. The first is that crossing a group of wakes or swells is not as easy or smooth as crossing just one wake. The second is that when you quarter the wake or swell, the boat will try to steer away from the wake or swell. When crossing at a 45 an- gle, you may not notice this, but at a smaller angle, say 10, it can be very strong. Be pre- pared to steer and balance as necessary.

Post-operation checks These post-operation procedures are devel- oped to help preserve the long-term appear- ance and reliability of your boat. Perform these procedures as soon as possible after the boat is loaded back on the trailer after the days use. Some owners prefer to moor their boat sea- sonally, rather than keeping it on the trailer between uses. Extended mooring is not recommended. Proper flushing of the cool- ing system is not possible with the boat in the water. In addition, conditions such as stray electrical voltage in the water, marine organ- isms, and saltwater corrosion can adversely affect the life of many boat components. NOTICE: Leaving the boat in the water for extended periods will accelerate the rate of normal deterioration of the jet pump components, sacrificial anodes, hull finish and other components. If you do decide to moor your boat, be sure to remove it from the water periodically to clean the hull and jet pump area. The frequency of maintenance required will depend upon whether the water is salt water or fresh water and other local water conditions. (1) After putting the boat on the trailer, flush

the cooling system to prevent the cooling system from clogging up with salt, sand, or dirt. (See page 104 for the cooling sys- tem flushing procedure.)

(2) Drain residual water from the exhaust system by starting the engine, and then alternately pushing the remote control le- ver up to half throttle and back to idle for 10 to 15 seconds. NOTICE: Do not run the engine over 4000 r/min on land. Al- so, do not run the engine for more than 15 seconds without supplying

water, otherwise, the engine could overheat and/or seize.

(3) Stop the engine. (4) Wash down the hull, helm, and jet drive

unit with fresh water. (5) Open the rear platform hatch. (See page

59 for rear platform hatch opening and closing procedures.)

(6) Remove the access port cap to let any water drain that has pooled on it. (See page 120 for access port cap removal and installation procedures.) If the boat will be stored on the trailer nearby, leave the cap out until you prepare to launch the boat again. If the boat will be trans- ported on the trailer any distance, tempo- rarily reinstall the cap and close the hatch until you get home. Open the hatch again when you arrive and remove the cap as before. Leave the cap loose until you plan to transport the boat on the trailer again. NOTICE: Leaving the access port cap out when you are not using or trans- porting the boat helps keep it from be- coming stuck in the access port.

(7) Remove the hull drain plugs and the fuel tank compartment drain plug. (See page 77.)

(8) Rinse the engine compartment with a small amount of fresh water. Be careful not to get water on the air filter area or electrical components. Allow any water in the bilge to drain out. After the water has drained, wipe the engine compartment and bilge with dry rags.

(9) Reinstall all drain plugs. NOTICE: Tight- en the hull drain plugs securely before launching the boat. Otherwise, water may flood the boat and cause it to sub- merge. Clean any foreign material, such as dirt or sand, from the threads

and the O-rings on the hull drain plugs before installing the drain plugs.

(10) Spray a rust inhibitor, such as Yamaha Silicone Protectant and Lubricant, on me- tallic parts to minimize corrosion.

(11) Use the included boat cover, or store the boat in a building or under a canopy or carport in order to prevent rain from fall- ing onto the boat. Because all of the wa- ter will not be drained from the deck automatically, take sufficient measures to prevent rainwater from entering the boat. NOTICE: Make sure that the turnbuck- les on the boat cover do not contact the boat directly when using the cov- er. Otherwise, the boat could be dam- aged.

(12) Turn the battery switch in the battery compartment to the OFF (red) position. (See page 28 for more information.)

Trailering

Trailering the boat WARNING

Avoid accident and injury from improper trailering: The trailer must be matched for the

boats weight and hull. The towing vehicle must have the capac-

ity of pulling the load. Pulling a load that exceeds the towing capacity may cause loss of control.

Be sure the boat is secured to the trailer and the trailer is properly hitched to the towing vehicle before towing.

Read the manuals supplied with the trailer by the manufacturer.

A trailer is provided as standard equipment with your boat. If you need to obtain another trailer, choose one that is manufactured to carry a boat of the size and weight of your boat. Check the certification label on the left forward side of the trailer. This label is re- quired to show the Gross Vehicle Weight Rat- ing (GVWR), which is the load carrying capacity of the trailer plus the trailers weight. Be sure that the total weight of your boat, any cargo, and the trailer weight itself does not ex- ceed the GVWR.

Hitch The trailer hitch ball must match the size of the socket on the trailer hitch coupler. Hitches are divided into classes that specify the Gross Trailer Weight (GTW) and the maximum tongue weight. Always use a hitch rated for the same or higher class. Use a bolted-on or welded-on hitch; clamp-on bumper hitches are not recommended. Be sure the trailer hitchs release handle is latched with the lock pin installed before towing.

Use safety chains between the towing vehicle and the trailer so the trailer will not detach completely from the towing vehicle if it acci- dentally comes loose from the hitch ball. Crisscross the chains under the trailer tongue so the tongue will not hit the road surface if it falls loose. Rig the chains as tightly as possi- ble while allowing just enough slack to permit tight turns. Be sure the tongue weight (vertical weight on the hitch point) is correct. Generally, 5% to 10% of the combined weight of the boat and trailer should be on the tongue. Too much or too little weight can cause difficult steering or trailer swaying.

Trailering checklist Check your state laws to be sure your trailer

meets all regulations, such as proper li- censing, brake, axle load, and safety chain requirements.

Check the trailer for any loose fasteners or damaged parts.

Check the tires for proper inflation. Check the wheel bearings and wheel lug

nuts before each trip. Check the tail, brake, and turn signal lights

for proper operation.

Secure the bow of the boat to the trailer with the winch line and also with the chain. Se- cure the stern eyes to the trailer with tie- downs.

1 Bow eye

1 Stern eye

TIP: During transport, use a boat cover to prevent any items from blowing out of the boat, or make sure to store any items inside the stor- age compartments and securely close the compartments. Be sure the access port cap is properly in-

stalled (see page 120 for more information) and the rear platform hatch is closed se- curely.

Be sure any cargo that must be carried in the boat as well as the folding windshield and all hatches are secured.

While traveling, check the wheel hubs on the trailer whenever you park. If a hub feels abnormally hot, have the bearing inspected before continuing your trip. On longer trips, it is a good idea to carry a set of spare wheel bearings, seals, and races.

When making a turn, do not cut corners. The trailer has a smaller turning circle, so it turns more sharply around the corner than the towing vehicle.

Backing your trailer It takes practice to back a trailer successfully. If you are not familiar backing up with a trailer, practice first in an open area away from ob- stacles.

Keep the following points in mind when backing up Back slowly. Make steering adjustments in

small steps. Turn the towing vehicles wheels opposite

the direction you want the trailer to go. After the trailer begins moving, turn the tow-

ing vehicle to follow it. Have a second person stand by to help di-

rect you with hand signals.

Launching As a courtesy to other boaters, prepare your boat for launching before using the ramp.

Each launch may have particular differences, such as ramp angle, prevailing wind, waves, and water currents. If possible, watch a cou- ple of boaters launch their boats first to notice any problems. While every boater develops a preferred launch procedure, here is a recom- mended general procedure:

(1) Perform the pre-operation checks shown on page 80 that can be performed on land.

(2) Remove all trailering tie-down lines from the boat and attach your docking lines and fenders, if used.

(3) Disconnect the trailer lights from the tow- ing vehicle.

(4) Back the trailer down the ramp as close to 90 to the shoreline as you can. If pos- sible, have a second person stand aside as an observer. Stop when the wheels are at least halfway submerged. Set the parking brake.

(5) Remove the bow line from the bow eye. (6) Back the trailer farther into the water until

just the tops of the fenders show, and then reset the parking brake. Board the boat and start it. If possible, remain on the trailer until the engine is warm and is re- sponding to throttle.

(7) Back the boat out into the water, watch- ing carefully for people, other boats, or obstacles.

Loading (1) Disconnect the trailer lights from the tow-

ing vehicle. (2) Back the trailer down the ramp as close

to 90 to the shoreline as you can. If pos- sible, have a second person act as an ob- server while standing to the side of the trailer. Stop when the tops of the trailers fenders are about 3 inches above the wa- terline.

(3) With the boat moving at the slowest idle speed, guide the boat onto the support rails. Use throttle only if necessary for steering ability. WARNING! Using too much throttle can cause the boat to jump over the front of the trailer, which can result in injury to the boat operator and bystanders.

(4) Make sure the boat is centered on the support rails and is headed straight for the bow stop (bumper board). Ease the boat forward until the bow rests against the bow stop. NOTICE: The winch line is not designed to pull the boat onto the trailer.

(5) Attach and tighten the winch line. NOTICE: The winch line should not be the only line securing the bow during trailering. Use the chain along with the winch to secure the boat to the trailer.

Lifting

NOTICE

Do not attach lifting cables to the bow eye, cleats, stern eyes, ski tow hook, or hand- grips. Serious damage to the boat can oc- cur. Use only a sling designed specifically for lifting boats.

If you need to remove the boat from the water without a trailer, use these guidelines: Use a sling-type lifting mechanism de-

signed for lifting boats. The sling should be covered with a protective material to pre- vent damage to the hull gelcoat.

Use spreader bars to avoid side stress to the hull that may cause cracks in the gel- coat and fiberglass.

Attach guidelines to the bow eye and stern eyes to control movement of the boat dur- ing lifting.

Remove all people and all cargo from the boat. Drain any excess water from the bilge using the bilge pump.

Be sure all people are standing clear, and then lift the boat slowly and just far enough to verify that the boat is securely held and properly balanced. If necessary, lower the boat again and adjust the slings.

When ready, lift the boat slowly and careful- ly.

(2) Loosen the flush hose connector cap and remove it. Insert the garden hose adapter into the flush hose connector and turn it until it is securely connected.

1 Flush hose connector 2 Garden hose adapter 3 Flush hose connector cap

(3) Connect the garden hose to a water tap.

(4) Make sure that the area around the boat is clear, and then start the engine. Imme- diately after the engine starts, fully turn the water supply on so that water flows out continually from the jet thrust nozzle and cooling water pilot outlet. NOTICE: Never turn on the water before starting the engine. The water could flow back through the muffler into the crankcase causing severe engine damage. Be sure to turn on the water immediately after starting the engine to prevent en- gine overheating.

(5) Run the engine at a fast idle for 3 to 5 minutes. If the engine stops while flush- ing, turn the water supply off immediately and perform the procedure again from step 4.

(6) Turn off the water supply, and then drain residual water from the exhaust system by alternately pushing the remote control lever up to half throttle and back to idle for 10 to 15 seconds.

(7) Stop the engine. NOTICE: Never have the water on when the engine is not running. The water could flow back through the muffler into the crankcase causing severe engine damage. Do not run the engine for more than 15 seconds after the water supply has been turned off to avoid engine over- heating.

(8) Remove the garden hose adapter. (9) Install and tighten the cap securely.

Cleaning the boat

WARNING

Gasoline and its vapors are highly flam- mable and explosive. If there is fuel or a fu- el/water mixture in the engine compartment or the fuel tank compart- ment, wipe it up immediately with dry rags. Do not operate the boat until the source of the fuel leak is found and corrected.

TIP: Quality Yamaclean, Yamashield, and oth- er Yamalube care products are available from your Yamaha Boat Dealer. (1) Remove the fuel tank compartment drain

plug to drain the water. (See page 77 for fuel tank compartment drain plug removal and installation procedures.) Reinstall the fuel tank compartment drain plug.

(3) Clean the hull, boat interior, and drive unit with Yamaclean Wash & Wax Concen- trate, or a mild natural soap, and water. Rinse with fresh water. Scum on the hull can be removed with Yamaclean Hull Cleaner. NOTICE: Incorrect cleaning can damage vinyl. See Basic stain guide on page 107.

(4) Clean the engine and bilge areas with Yamaclean Bilge Cleaner or an equiva- lent and rinse with fresh water. Drain all water and wipe up any remaining mois- ture with clean, dry rags. NOTICE: Be careful not to get water on the air filter area or electrical components. Do not use high-pressure water when rinsing the engine or engine compartment as severe engine damage could result.

(5) Open the rear platform hatch. (See page 59 for rear platform hatch opening and closing procedures.)

(6) Remove the access port cap to let any water drain that has pooled on it. (See page 120 for access port cap removal and installation procedures.) If the boat will be stored on the trailer nearby, leave the cap out until you prepare to launch the boat again. If the boat will be trans- ported on the trailer any distance, tempo-

rarily reinstall the cap and close the hatch until you get home. Open the hatch again when you arrive and remove the cap as before. Leave the cap loose until you plan to transport the boat on the trailer again. NOTICE: Leaving the access port cap out when you are not using or trans- porting the boat helps keep it from be- coming stuck in the access port. See page 120 for more information.

(7) Securely install the hull drain plugs by tightening them until they stop. NOTICE: Before installing the hull drain plugs, clean the drain plug threads and O-rings to remove any foreign materi- als, such as dirt or sand. Otherwise, the hull drain plugs could be dam- aged, allowing water to enter the hull. Check the O-rings on the hull drain plugs and make sure that the hull drain plugs are tightened securely be- fore launching the boat. Otherwise, water may flood the boat and cause it to submerge.

(8) Spray the exterior of the engine with Yamalube Silicone Protectant and Lubri- cant, or an equivalent. For areas requir- ing heavy protection, use Yamashield.

(9) Wax the hull with Yamaclean Spray Wax or other non-abrasive wax designed for marine gelcoat. WARNING! Slippery surfaces can cause falls and injury. Be careful not to apply too much wax on deck and gunwale stepping surfaces. This will make them slippery.

(10) Wipe all vinyl and rubber components, such as the seats and engine compart- ment seals, with Yamaclean Vinyl Dress- ing or other quality vinyl protectant. NOTICE: Some well-known protec- tant products on the market can actu-

ally damage vinyl over time. Consult a Yamaha Boat Dealer if you want to use a product other than Yamaclean Vinyl Protectant.

(11) Wash the fabric of the bimini top with a mild natural soap in lukewarm water, then rinse. Do not use detergents. Allow to air dry thoroughly before storage.

Battery care If the boat will not be used for more than a month, remove the battery and store it in a cool, dark place. The battery is located in the battery compart- ment.

TIP: The number of batteries varies according to the model. 190 FSH Sport/190 FSH Deluxe: 2 batteries 190 FSH: 1 battery To remove the battery: (1) Turn the battery switch to the OFF (red)

position. (See page 28.) (2) Disconnect the ground lead (black)

(190 FSH Sport/190 FSH Deluxe) and the negative () battery lead (black).

(3) Disconnect the positive (+) battery lead (red).

(4) Unfasten the battery strap, and then re- move the battery from the boat.

1 Positive (+) battery lead (red) 2 Battery strap 3 Negative () battery lead (black) 4 Ground lead (190 FSH Sport/

190 FSH Deluxe)

To store the battery: (1) Clean the battery casing and terminals

using a mixture of baking soda and water (one tablespoon of baking soda to one cup of water).

(2) Apply dielectric grease or petroleum jelly to the battery terminals and to all ex- posed connectors.

(3) If the battery will be stored for a longer period, check its state of charge (use a hydrometer or a voltmeter and load tes- ter) at least once a month and recharge the battery if it gets too low.

To charge the battery: (1) Remove the caps from the cells. Add dis-

tilled water if necessary to top up the electrolyte to the proper level.

(2) Follow the battery manufacturers instruc- tions for charging. WARNING! When charging a battery, keep it well away from sparks and open flames, as it gives off explosive gases. When using a battery charger, connect the battery to the charger before you turn on the charger. This will prevent sparking at the terminals that could ignite battery gases.

To install the battery: (1) Place the battery in the battery holder,

and then fasten the battery using the bat- tery strap.

(2) Connect the positive (+) battery lead (red) to the positive (+) battery terminal. NOTICE: Reversal of the battery leads will damage the electrical parts.

(3) Connect the negative () battery lead (black) and the ground lead (black) (190 FSH Sport/190 FSH Deluxe) to the negative () battery terminal.

(4) Make sure that the battery is securely held in place.

Long-term storage Storing your boat for prolonged periods of time, such as winter storage, requires preven- tative maintenance to ensure against deterio- ration. It is advisable to have the boat serviced by an authorized Yamaha Boat Dealer before storage. However, the following procedures can be performed by the owner with a mini- mum of tools.

Fuel system Fill the fuel tank with fresh fuel, adding one ounce of Fuel Med RX, available from your Yamaha Boat Dealer, to each gallon of fuel or use an equivalent according to the manufac- turers instructions. (See page 74 for informa- tion on filling the fuel tank.) Do not top off the tank, because fuel could spill. A full fuel tank is less likely to allow condensation to collect in the tank, reducing the chance of contaminat- ed fuel. Running the engine with treated fuel during cooling system flushing will also help protect the fuel system.

TIP: Use of Fuel Med RX eliminates the need to drain the fuel system. Consult a Yamaha Boat Dealer or other qualified mechanic if the fuel system is to be drained instead.

Lubrication It is advisable to take the boat to a Yamaha Boat Dealer to have the engine fogged for long-term storage.

Grease points To keep moving parts sliding or rotating smoothly, coat them with water-resistant grease.

Throttle cable Grease the throttle-cable inner wires at the pulley wheel of the APS.

Steering cable ball joints and inner wire Grease the steering cable and shift cable ball joints at the jet thrust nozzle. Extend the steer- ing cable and shift cable inner wires and apply a thin coat of grease to them.

Recommended water-resistant grease: Yamaha Marine Grease or Yamaha Grease A

SportsBoat_F3M10.book Page 109 Monday, June 29, 2015 3:43 PM

Care and storage

110

Pivot points Grease all pivot points of the steering and shift mechanism at the pump end.

Bearing housing Grease the bearing housing through the grease nipple. NOTICE: Fill the grease slowly and carefully, because it can dam- age the hose and the joints. The first service should be done after 10 hours or 1 month by a Yamaha Boat Dealer. Fill the bearing housing with water-resistant grease through the grease nipple.

After first service: Every 100 hours or 6 months (you may do this yourself).

Emergency procedures Jet pump clean-out procedure

WARNING

Severe injury or death may result if you ig- nore any of the following: Turn off and remove the main switch

key, remove the clip from the engine shut-off switch, and wait for all move- ment to stop before removing the ac- cess port cap.

Never override the interlocks to run the engine with the rear platform hatch open.

The impeller has sharp edges. Be care- ful when reaching into jet pump area.

If weeds or debris get caught in the intake or impeller, cavitation can occur, and though the engine speed rises, forward thrust will de- crease. If this condition is allowed to continue, jet pump damage can occur and the engine may overheat and seize. If there is any sign that the jet intake or impeller is clogged with weeds or debris, follow this clean-out proce- dure. (1) Turn off and remove the main switch key,

remove the clip from the engine shut-off switch, and wait for all movement to stop.

(2) Open the rear platform hatch. (See page 59.)

(3) Check that the retaining cord is securely attached to the access port cap and re- taining bracket.

1 Retaining cord

(4) Push the unlock button and lift the access port cap up out of the port. Set the cap where it cannot be accidentally knocked overboard.

(8) Press the lock button down firmly to lock the cap in place. Pull up forcefully on the lock button to be sure it is locked. If a strong pull will move the access port cap, it is not locked securelythe cap could be forced out by water pressure during operation.

1 Lock button

(9) Close the rear platform hatch.

NOTICE

Be sure the access port cap is locked securely in place. Otherwise, the cap could be forced out of the access port by water pressure, causing loss of per- formance and possible damage.

The rear platform hatch has interlocks to shut off the engine should the hatch be accidentally opened during operation. The engine will not restart unless the hatch is closed and latched.

Jump-starting

WARNING

Severe injury or death may result if you ig- nore any of the following: If the blower will not operate, ventilate

the engine compartment by opening the engine hood for several minutes before attempting a jump-start.

Do not connect the negative () jumper cable to the negative () terminal of the dead battery. Sparks could ignite battery or fuel vapors, which could cause an ex- plosion.

If the boat battery runs down, the engine can be started in an emergency using a 12-volt booster battery and jumper cables. To connect the jumper cables: (1) Connect the positive (+) terminal of the

dead battery to the positive (+) terminal of the booster battery with the positive (+) jumper cable.

(2) Connect one end of the negative () jumper cable to the negative () terminal of the booster battery.

(3) Connect the other end of the negative () jumper cable to an engine hanger. NOTICE: Be sure all connections are secure and correct before attempting to start the engine. Any wrong con- nection may damage the electrical system.

1 Negative () jumper cable 2 Positive (+) jumper cable 3 Engine hanger 4 Booster battery

(4) Start the engine, and then disconnect the jumper cables by reversing the above steps. NOTICE: Do not turn the main switch key for more than 5 seconds. If the engine does not start in 5 seconds, release the main switch key and try again after 15 seconds. Continuous cranking for more than 5 seconds will

discharge the battery and the engine will not start. The starter motor may also be damaged if it is engaged con- tinuously for more than 5 seconds.

Fuse replacement

WARNING

Do not use fuses of a higher amperage than recommended. Substitution with a fuse that has an improper rating can cause extensive electrical system damage and possible fire.

If a fuse is blown, replace it with the proper fuse. To replace a fuse: (1) Open the engine hood. (See page 53.) (2) While pushing both sides of the fuse box

cover inward, pull the cover toward the bow and remove it.

(4) Replace the blown fuse with the spare fuse of the correct amperage by using the fuse puller.

(5) Install the fuse box cover. (6) If an accessory fuse was replaced, install

the accessory fuse holder. (7) Close the engine hood.

Towing the boat

WARNING

The operator of the towing boat must keep speed to a minimum and avoid traf- fic or obstacles which could be a hazard to either boat.

The towing line should be long enough so the towed boat will not collide with the towing boat when slowing down.

The boat should be towed only if it becomes inoperative. The towing rope should be long enough so that the boat will not collide with the towing boat when slowing down. A good rule of thumb is a tow rope which is three times the combined length of the towing boat and the boat. Tow the boat using the bow eye only. Tow the boat at a no-wake speed. NOTICE: Do not tow the boat at speed fast enough to leave a wake (8 km/h, 5 mph). Severe engine

CUSTOMER SERVICE

If your boat requires warranty service, you must take it to any authorized Yamaha Boat dealer within the United States. Be sure to bring your warranty registration card or other valid proof of the original date of purchase. If a question or problem arises regarding warranty, first contact the owner of the dealership. Since all warranty matters are handled at the dealer level, this person is in the best position to help you. If you are still not satisfied and require additional assistance, please write:

CHANGE OF ADDRESS

The federal government requires each manufacturer to maintain a complete, up-to-date list of all first purchasers against the possibility of a safety-related defect and recall. This list is compiled from the purchase registrations sent to Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A. by the selling dealer at the time of your purchase. If you should move after you have purchased your new boat, please advise us of your new address by sending a postcard listing your Yamaha model name, engine number, dealer number [or deal- ers name] as it is shown on your warranty card, your name and new mailing address. Mail to:

YAMAHA MOTOR CORPORATION, U.S.A. CUSTOMER RELATIONS DEPARTMENT P.O. Box 6555 Cypress, California 90630

YAMAHA MOTOR CORPORATION, U.S.A. WARRANTY DEPARTMENT 1270 Chastain Road Kennesaw, Georgia 30144

This will ensure that Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A. has an up-to-date registration record in accordance with federal law.

Q. May I perform any or all of the recommended maintenance shown in the Owners Manual instead of having the dealer do them?

A. Yes, if you are a qualified mechanic and follow the procedures specified in the Owners and Service Manual. We do recommend, however, that items requiring special tools or equipment be done by a Yamaha Boat dealer.

Q. Will the warranty be void or cancelled if I do not operate or maintain my new boat exactly as specified in the Owners Manual?

A. No. The warranty on a new boat cannot be voided or cancelled. However, if a particular failure is caused by operation or maintenance other than as shown in the Owners Manual, that failure may not be covered under warranty.

Q. What responsibility does my dealer have under this warranty? A. Each Yamaha Boat dealer is expected to:

1. Completely set up each new boat before sale. 2. Explain the operation, maintenance, and warranty requirements to your satisfaction at the

time of sale, and upon your request at any later date. In addition, each Yamaha Boat dealer is held responsible for his setup, service and warranty repair work.

Q. Is the warranty transferable to second owners? A. Yes. The remainder of the existing warranty can be transferred upon request. The unit has

to be inspected and re-registered by an authorized Yamaha Boat dealer for the policy to remain effective.
