Page 17

This boat is designed to carry the operator, up to 9 passengers, and cargo... Never ex- ceed the maximum load limit or allow more than 10 persons (or 9 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 18

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 134...

Page 19

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 20

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 51 and 68 for more informa- tion... )

Page 21

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 22

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 51 and 68 for instructions... ) 210FSH DELUXE

Page 23

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 24

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 25

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 26

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

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 28

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...

Battery switches 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 start- er 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...

Page 38

In normal operation, keep the START and HOUSE switches in the ON position... Keep the EMERG PARALLEL switch in the OFF 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 position if the boat is moored in the water as it will prevent the anchor light from functioning...

Page 39

The remote control lever for each engine con- trols both throttle and shifting... In normal op- eration, the levers are moved together... Moving the remote control levers forward from the neutral position shifts into the for- ward position, and then as the levers are moved farther, accelerates the engines for more thrust... Moving the levers back from the neutral position shifts into the reverse posi- tion, and then as the levers are moved farther, accelerates the engines for more thrust... For cruising, adjust the remote control levers so both engines are running at the same en- gine speed...

Page 40

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

Page 41

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...

Page 42

Page 53

Low oil pressure warning If the oil pressure does not rise to specifica- tion, a warning will appear on the multi-func- tion display and the buzzer will sound... If a fault is detected for an engine, Low Oil Pres- sure will be displayed... 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 maneuver to a safe location, and check the engine oil level... (See page 80 for engine oil level checking procedures... ) If the oil level is low, add enough engine oil to raise it to the proper level... If the oil level is suf- ficient, have a Yamaha Boat Dealer check the engine...

Page 54

Over temperature warning This model is equipped with an over temper- ature warning system... If the engines start to overheat, a warning will appear on the multi- function display and the buzzer will sound... If an 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 outlets... There are cooling water pilot outlets on the starboard side of the hull... Check that water comes out of the outlets while the en- gines are running, particularly while applying throttle... If you do not see any water at the outlets, cooling water may not be circulating in the engines...

Page 55

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 engines are operating at idle speed... To activate the no-wake mode: (1) Put the remote control levers in the TDE

Page 56

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 levers back-

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...

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 96

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...

In some cases, the engines may overheat be- cause of a lack of cooling water, and damage could result... If the jet intakes are clogged, clean them... (See page 126 for information on the jet intakes... ) WARNING! Rotating parts could cause severe injury or death... Before attempting to remove weeds or debris from the jet intakes or impeller areas; shut

Page 98

Drain plug check Loosen the drain plugs and remove them, and then make sure that the plugs and the O- rings on the hull drain plugs are not damaged and that there is no foreign material on the threads or the O-rings on the hull drain plugs... NOTICE: Before installing the drain plugs, clean the drain plug threads and the O-rings on the hull drain plugs to remove any foreign materials, such as dirt or sand... Otherwise, the drain plugs could be dam- aged, allowing water to enter the engine compartment or the fuel tank compart- ment... Make sure that the drain plugs are tightened securely before launching the boat... Otherwise, water may flood the boat and cause it to submerge... Securely install the drain plugs by tightening them until they stop...

Page 99

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 oper- ate the blower if you can smell gasoline vapors in the engine compartment or if there are any loose electrical connections... Contact a Yamaha Boat Dealer if there is a problem you cannot locate or correct...

Page 100

Engine shut-off cord (lanyard) check Make sure that the engine shut-off cord (lan- yard) is not damaged... If the cord is damaged, replace it... WARNING! Never try to repair the engine shut-off cord (lanyard) or tie it together... The engine shut-off cord (lan- yard) may not pull free when the operator falls off, allowing the boat to continue to run and cause an accident...

Page 101

A continuous flow of water from the pilot outlets shows that water is flowing through the engine cooling water passag- es... If water is not flowing out of the pilot outlets during operation, do not continue to run the engines... Overheating and seri- ous damage could occur... (See Over tem- perature warning on page 45 for more information... )

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 9 passengers...

Page 104

(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 intakes, damaging the impel- lers...

Page 105

If the starter motors are engaged con- tinuously for more than 5 seconds, the battery will become quickly discharged and it will be impossible to start the en- gines... The starter motors may also be damaged if they are engaged continu- ously for more than 5 seconds...

Page 106

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 levers 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 engines idling and the bow still

Page 107

C... Pulling the remote control levers 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 levers back to idle, but when the engines 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 108

The boat is not equipped with a separate braking system... It is stopped by water resis- tance after the remote control levers are moved back to idle... From full speed, the boat stops in approximately 115 m (377 ft) after the remote control levers are 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 refer- ence... The boat slows down as soon as the remote control levers are 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 direction...

Page 109

(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 110

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

Page 111

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 112

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 113

(11) Use a boat cover designed for your boat, or store the boat in a building or under a canopy or carport in order to prevent rain from falling onto the boat... Because all of the water will not be drained from the deck automatically, take sufficient mea- sures 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 114

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 115

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 116

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 117

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 118

(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 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 119

(4) Clean the engine and bilge areas with Yamaclean Bilge Cleaner or an equiv- alent 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...

Page 120

(7) Securely install the hull drain plug by tightening them until they stop... NOTICE: Before installing the hull drain plug, clean the drain plug thread and O-ring to remove any foreign materials, such as dirt or sand... Otherwise, the hull drain plug could be damaged, allow- ing water to enter the hull... Check the O-ring on the hull drain plug and make sure that the hull drain plug is tight- ened securely before launching the boat... Otherwise, water may flood the boat and cause it to submerge...

Basic stain guide Here are basic steps to remove common stains from boat upholstery... Consult a Yamaha Boat Dealer or upholstery-cleaning professional for difficult stains...

Page 122

(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 123

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 78 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 124

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

Page 125

Owners/operators manual It is advisable to always carry the own- ers/operators manual 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...

If weeds or debris get caught in the intakes or impellers, 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 engines 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 134

(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 135

(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...

Page 136

(5) When replacing the accessory fuse and bilge pump fuse, remove the fuse holder... (Open the battery compartment to ac- cess the accessory fuse and bilge pump fuse... [See page 66... ])

Page 137

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...
