All applicable electrical system components installed as original equipment meet appropriate U... S... C... G... requirements for ignition protection... (Ref... 33 CFR 183... 410 and 183... 440)

Page 16

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 distri- bution 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...

Page 17

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 132...

Page 18

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...

Page 19

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 work- ing and are turned on when necessary... (See pages 50 and 67 for more informa- tion... )

Page 20

mote control lever completely back to idle or the neutral position produces only mini- mum thrust... If you are traveling at speeds above trolling, you will have rapidly de- creasing ability to steer without throttle... You may still have some turning ability im- mediately after moving the remote control lever back to idle, but once the engine slows down, the boat will no longer re- spond to steering wheel input until you ap- ply 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...

Page 21

Night operation When using your boat before dawn or after dusk, you must have both bow and anchor lights operating... When at anchor in the dark, the anchor light must be lit... (See pages 50 and 67 for instructions... )

Page 22

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 force- ful water entry into the rectum or vagina... The person being pulled should wear a wetsuit bottom or clothing that provides equivalent protection... Such clothing in- cludes thick, tightly woven, sturdy, and snug-fitting apparel such as denim, but does not include spandex or similar fab- rics, like those used in bicycle shorts...

Page 23

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 geographic location, but are all basically the same as the International Rules of the Road... The rules presented here in this owners/op- erators manual are condensed, and have been provided for your convenience only... Consult your local U... S... Coast Guard Auxiliary or Department of Motor Vehicles for a com- plete 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 maintain your direction and speed, the other vessel will be able to determine how best to avoid you...

Page 24

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, remem- ber that you should maintain course and di- rection, provided the other vessel gives you the right-of-way, as it should...

Page 25

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 wa- ter 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

Page 26

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

Page 27

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 oppor- tunities...

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 operators PFD... Should the operator fall over- board or leave the helm, the cord will pull out the clip, stopping the ignition to the engine... This will prevent the boat from running away under power...

Page 36

HOUSE switch to the OFF position if the boat is moored in the water as it will pre- vent the anchor light from functioning... If the start battery is discharged, turn the EMERG PARALLEL switch to the ON posi- tion to start the engine... Once the engine is started or the start battery is charged, turn the EMERG PARALLEL switch to the OFF position...

Page 37

Turn the battery switch to the OFF position when the boat will not be used again right away... Turning the switch to the OFF position will prevent the battery from being drained if another electrical switch is accidentally left in the on position... NOTICE: Do not turn the battery switch to the OFF position if the boat is moored in the water as it will pre- vent the anchor light from functioning...

Page 38

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

Page 39

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...

Page 40

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 direc- tion of your turn... If you turn to starboard, for example, the stern of the boat will swing to the left... Keep this in mind when navigating near a person in the water, such as a down wakeboarder or water-skier, or an obstacle, such as a dock...

Warnings If a malfunction or fault occurs, a warning buzzer will sound and a warning icon and warning message will be displayed on the center display...

Page 51

Over temperature warning This model is equipped with an over temper- ature warning system... If the engine starts to overheat, a warning will appear on the multi- function display and the buzzer will sound... If the engine is overheating, Over Tempera- ture will be displayed... At the same time, the engine speed is automatically limited to help prevent damage... If this occurs, immediately reduce the engine speed, return to shore or maneuver to a safe location, and check for water discharge at the cooling water pilot outlet... There is a cooling water pilot outlet on the starboard side of the hull... Check that wa- ter comes out of the outlet while the engine is running, particularly while applying throttle... If you do not see any water at the outlet, cool- ing water may not be circulating in the en- gine...

Page 52

Operating the boat with a minimal wake (no-wake mode) The no-wake mode is useful for operating the boat at a steady speed with a minimal wake... This is especially convenient when traveling in harbors, channels, or other areas posted with low speed limits as no wake zones... The no-wake mode can be activated only when the engine is operating at idle speed... To activate the no-wake mode: (1) Put the remote control lever in the TDE

Page 53

Operating the boat at a steady speed (cruise assist) The cruise assist feature is for steady engine speed operation when the boat is traveling above no-wake speeds... The cruise assist is available for use whenever the engine is run- ning above 3000 rpm and below 7000 rpm... To activate the cruise assist: (1) Push the remote control lever forward to

Page 54

Operating the boat in reverse with more thrust (reverse RPM control) Engine speed in reverse is limited to approx- imately 4500 rpm... If more thrust is required when the boat is traveling in reverse, use the reverse RPM control... WARNING! Be pre- pared to reduce throttle as soon as the boat moves as desired... Otherwise, the boat may become unstable, which could result in loss of control and an accident... To activate the reverse RPM control: (1) Move the remote control lever backward

Page 82

ethanol content does not exceed 10% and the fuel meets minimum octane ratings... E-85 is a fuel blend containing 85% ethanol and therefore must not be used in this boat... All ethanol blends containing more than 10% ethanol can cause fuel system damage or en- gine performance 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-

Page 83

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...

Make sure the jet thrust nozzle changes di- rections as the steering wheel is turned... The jet thrust nozzle should point to starboard (right) when the wheel is turned to the right... The jet thrust nozzle should point to port (left) when the wheel is turned to the left... There should not be free play between the steering wheel and the jet thrust nozzle... In addition, check that the direction of the articulating keel changes according to the movement of the jet thrust nozzle...

Page 91

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 recommended... See the instructions supplied by the extinguisher manufacturer to deter- mine 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...

Page 92

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...

Page 93

In some cases, the engine may overheat be- cause of a lack of cooling water, and damage could result... If the jet intake is clogged, clean it...

A continuous flow of water from the pilot outlet shows that water is flowing through the engine cooling water passages... If wa- ter is not flowing out of the pilot outlet dur- ing operation, do not continue to run the engine... Overheating and serious damage could occur... (See Over temperature warning on page 45 for more informa- tion... )

Driving your boat Getting to know your boat Operating your boat requires skills acquired through practice over a period of time... Take the time to learn the basic techniques well before 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 In- struction card, and all labels on the boat... Pay particular attention to the safety information beginning on page 10... These materials should give you an understanding of the boat and its operation... This boat is designed to carry one operator and up to 7 passengers...

Page 99

(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 obstacle... You could be injured... Peb- bles or sand can also be sucked into the jet intake, damaging the impeller...

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 after 5 seconds of cranking, release the key... Wait at least 15 seconds before try- ing to start the engine again...

Page 101

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 forward 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 cir- cumstances: (1) With the engine idling and the bow still

Page 102

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...

Page 103

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 115 m (377 ft) after the re- mote control lever is moved back to idle... The stopping distance varies depending on gross weight, water surface conditions, and wind direction... The stated straight-line stopping distance 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 obstacle, apply throttle and turn in another di- rection...

Page 104

(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...

Page 105

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...

Page 106

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 angle, you may not notice this, but at a smaller angle, say 10, it can be very strong... Be prepared to steer and balance as neces- sary...

Page 107

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

Page 108

(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 turnbuckles on the boat cover do not contact the boat directly when using the cover... Otherwise, the boat could be damaged...

Page 109

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...

Page 110

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...

Page 111

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:

Page 112

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...

Page 113

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 start- ing 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 engine overheating...

Page 114

(5) Remove the access port cap to let any water drain that has pooled on it... (See page 123 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, tem- porarily 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 ac- cess port cap out when you are not using or transporting the boat helps keep it from becoming stuck in the ac- cess port... (See page 123 for more in- formation... )

Page 115

(9) 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 ac- tually damage vinyl over time... Consult a Yamaha Boat Dealer if you want to use a product other than Yamaclean Vinyl Protectant...

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

Page 118

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 76 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 contaminated fuel... Running the engine with treated fuel during cooling system flushing will also help protect the fuel system...

Page 119

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...

Page 120

Owners/operators manual and tool kit It is advisable to always carry the own- ers/operators manual and tool kit with you whenever you use the boat... To protect these materials from water dam- age, it would be a good idea to put them in a waterproof bag... If your owners/operators manual is damaged, order a replacement from a Yamaha Boat Dealer... The service information included in this man- ual is intended to provide you, the owner, with the necessary information for complet- ing your own preventive maintenance and minor repairs... The tools provided in the own- ers tool kit are sufficient for this purpose, ex- cept that a torque wrench is also necessary for tightening nuts and bolts properly...

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 contin- ue, jet pump damage can occur and the engine may overheat and seize... If there is any sign that a jet intake or impeller is clogged with weeds or debris, follow this clean-out procedure... (1) Turn off and remove the main switch key,

Page 130

(6) To reinstall the access port cap, first clean off any sand or other foreign matter from the cap or port surfaces... Apply a light coat of Yamalube Waterproof Ma- rine Grease (P/N: ACC-GREAS-10-CT), if available, to the seal of the access port cap... If grease is not available, apply the grease during the post-operation checks...

Page 131

(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...

(3) When replacing an accessory fuse and bilge pump fuse, remove the fuse holder... (See page 65 for battery compartment opening and closing procedures... )

Page 133

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 damage could result because water can flood the non-operating engine through the water intake...
