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. These materials should give you an under- standing of the boat and its operation.

Never allow anyone to operate this boat until they too have read this owners/oper- ators manual, the Operation Instruction card, and all labels.

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 re- quirements 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 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.

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

1021 kg (2250 lb) Total weight of operator and passen- gers:

844 kg (1860 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 (paralysis), facial injuries, and broken legs, ankles, 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 weather. Take note of weather forecasts and the prevailing weather conditions be- fore 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 134.

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

Operational requirements The operator and all passengers must wear

a U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) approved per- sonal 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.

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 85 before operating the boat.

Passengers must always sit in a designat- ed 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 safety 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 traffic; other boaters may not be watch- ing for you. If they do not see you, or you maneuver 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 before 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 5-B (B-1) type hand-held por- table fire extinguisher.

Visual distress signals: It is recommended that a USCG-approved day/night 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 work- ing and are turned on when necessary. (See pages 51 and 68 for more informa- tion.)

Additional equipment recommendations

The following equipment can help make your boating experience safer and more enjoy- able: 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 re-

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.

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 other parts of the boat. This could increase the risk of serious injury. It could also dam- age 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 obstacles or people behind you before shifting into reverse.

Safety information

15

Keep away from the intake grates while the engines are on. Items such as long hair, loose clothing, or PFD straps can become entangled in moving parts, resulting in se- vere injury or drowning.

Never insert any object into the jet thrust nozzles while the engines are running. Se- vere injury or death could result from com- ing in contact with the rotating parts of the jet pumps.

1 Intake grate 2 Jet thrust nozzle

Stop the engines and remove the clip from the engine shut-off switch before removing any debris or weeds, which may have col- lected around the jet intakes. (See page 126 for more information.)

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, 67 and 68 for instructions.) 210FSH DELUXE

Wakeboarding and water- skiing

You can use the boat to tow a wakeboarder or water-skier, using the ski tow hook provid- ed. 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 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.

A second person should be on board as a spotter to watch the wakeboarder or wa- ter-skier; in most states, it is required by law. Let the person being pulled direct the operators control of speed and direction with hand signals. Be sure the seat is locked in place (see page 55) before get- ting underway.

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 ca- pable of very sharp turns, which could ex- ceed the abilities of the wakeboarder or water-skier. Keep the person being pulled at least 50 m (164 ft), about twice the dis- tance of a standard tow-rope, away from any potential hazard.

The operators of boats and other water- craft 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 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.

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 brief- ly and pass behind the other vessel. You should always 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 ves- sels. 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 followed: 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 apply 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, remem- ber that you should maintain course and di- rection, 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 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

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 perspec- tive of being entered from seaward (the boat- er 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 entirely within the boundaries of a particular state. The Uniform State Waterway Marking System has been devised for these waters.

SportsBoat_F4A13.book Page 19 Friday, July 3, 2020 12:57 PM

20

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.

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

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.

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 en- tangled, 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 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.

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.

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

1 HOUSE switch (red) 2 EMERG PARALLEL switch (yellow) 3 START switch (red)

1 ON position (green) 2 OFF position (red)

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.

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.

Main switches There is a main switch for each engine. The main switch controls the ignition and electrical circuits as follows:

1 Main switch (port engine) 2 Main switch (starboard engine)

OFF: Ignition circuit is switched off. The engine cannot be started, but other switches will op- erate. (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.

Remote control levers

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.

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.

TIP: Because of the mechanical throttle linkage, the remote control levers may not be exactly even with one another when the engines are running at the same engine speed.

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 engines will not start unless the levers are in the neutral position.

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

Neutral The shift gates are dropped down part way over the jet thrust nozzles. The neutral posi- tion balances forward and reverse thrust to help keep the boat from moving, although some movement may occur.

1 Shift gate 2 Jet thrust nozzle

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.

1 TDE position

1 Shift gate 2 Jet thrust nozzle

When the remote control levers are moved farther forward, the shift gates are 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 gates are dropped all the way down over the jet thrust nozzles. Jet thrust is redi- rected toward the bow of the boat, which moves the boat backward.

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

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 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.

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 steering wheel. There are 5 positions.

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.

1 Cooling water pilot outlet (port engine) 2 Cooling water pilot outlet (starboard engine)

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

If water is not circulating, something may be clogging the intake grates. Refer to Jet pump clean-out procedure on page 126.

1 Intake grate

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. Single engine overheating Shut off the overheating engine and use the properly running engine to return to shore. Operate at no-wake speed (8 km/h, 5 mph) to pre- vent water from flooding the non-operat- ing engine through the water intake. See page 48 for information on the no-wake mode. Both engines overheating If getting a tow from another vessel is not possible, operate both engines just slightly above idle while you return to shore. If you can be towed, refer to Towing the boat on page 130.

No-wake mode/cruise assist switch This switch activates and sets the no-wake mode, cruise assist, and reverse RPM con- trol.

1 No-wake mode/cruise assist switch

To operate the no-wake mode and cruise as- sist, see the following sections. To activate the reverse RPM control, see Reverse RPM control on page 49.

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

position or forward position so that both engines are operating at idle speed.

(2) Push the plus side of the no-wake mode/cruise assist switch. Once No Wake Mode is displayed in the multi- function meter, the no-wake mode is ac- tivated.

TIP: The no-wake mode can be set to 3 engine speeds. To adjust the engine speed while the no-wake mode is activated, push the plus side or minus side of the no-wake mode/cruise assist switch.

To deactivate the no-wake mode: Perform one of the following operations. Push the minus side of the no-wake

mode/cruise assist switch until No Wake Mode disappears.

Push the remote control levers forward to open the throttle.

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 engines are running above 4000 rpm and below 7000 rpm. To activate the cruise assist: (1) Push the remote control levers forward

to open the throttle until the desired en-

gine speed is reached and both engines are operating at the same engine speed.

(2) Push the plus side or minus side of the no-wake mode/cruise assist switch. Once Cruise is displayed in the multi- function meter, the cruise assist is acti- vated.

TIP: Once the cruise assist is activated, the set

engine speed can be increased by pushing the plus side of the switch or decreased by pushing the minus side. However, the ad- justment is limited to a maximum of 8 incre- ments above or below the initial cruise assist setting. Each time the switch is pushed, the engine speed will increase or decrease approximately 100200 rpm.

While the cruise assist is activated, the en- gine speed can also be adjusted by operat- ing the remote control levers.

To deactivate the cruise assist: Operate the remote control levers to de- crease the engine speed to 3000 rpm or less. Once Cruise disappears, the cruise assist is deactivated.

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-

ward so that the throttle is opened in re- verse and both engines are operating at the same engine speed.

(2) Increase the engine speed to 4500 rpm, and then push the plus side of the no- wake mode/cruise assist switch.

TIP: Once the reverse RPM control is activated, pushing the plus side of the no-wake mode/cruise assist switch will increase the available engine speed by approximately 500 rpm in 3 stages up to a maximum of 6000 rpm, and pushing the minus side will decrease the available engine speed. Howev- er, the adjustment is limited to these 3 incre- ments.

To deactivate the reverse RPM control: Operate the remote control levers to de- crease the engine speed to less than 4500 rpm.

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 gasoline can seriously damage the en- gine.

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 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-

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: 197 L (52.0 US gal, 43.3 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.

Why Yamalube YAMALUBE oil is a Genuine YAMAHA Part born of the engineers passion and belief that engine oil is an important liquid engine com- ponent. We form teams of specialists in the fields of mechanical engineering, chemistry, electronics and track testing, and have them develop the engine together with the oil it will

Recommended engine oil: YAMALUBE 4W

use. Yamalube oils take full advantage of the base oils qualities and blend in the ideal bal- ance of additives to make sure the final oil clears our performance standards. Thus, Yamalube mineral, semisynthetic and syn- thetic oils have their own distinct characters and value. Yamahas experience gained over many years of research and development into oil since the 1960s helps make Yamalube the best choice for your Yamaha engine.

Checking the engine oil level

WARNING

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

NOTICE

Do not run the engine with too much or not enough oil in the oil tank, otherwise the engine could be damaged.

Make sure that debris and water do not enter the oil tank filler hole. Debris and water in the engine oil can cause serious engine damage.

TIP: When checking the engine oil level on land,

the engine must be running while water is being supplied to the cooling water pas- sages. (See Flushing the cooling system on page 111 for information on supplying

water.) When checking the engine oil level on wa-

ter, moor the boat so that it will not drift away.

To check the engine oil level: (1) With the engine stopped, place the boat

in a precisely level position on land or launch the boat.

(2) Look in all directions, and then start the engine. (See page 96 for information on starting the engine.)

(3) Run the engine at idling speed for 6 min- utes or more. Run the engine an addi- tional 5 minutes if the ambient temperature is 20 C (68 F) or less.

(4) Stop the engine. (5) Open the engine hood. (See page 56.) (6) Loosen the oil tank filler cap and remove

it, and then wipe the attached dipstick clean.

Fire extinguisher check As an inboard boat less than 26 feet in length, your boat must be fitted with one 5-B (B-1) type fire extinguisher when navigating waters controlled by the U.S. Coast Guard. In addi- tion, most state and local boating laws re- quire that the craft carry a USCG-approved

fire extinguisher whenever the boat is operat- ed. 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.

Storing the fire extinguisher One fire extinguisher is to be mounted in the lockable storage compartment. The fire ex- tinguisher 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 battery compartment. There is a location label outside the compartment. This fire ex- tinguisher located near the engine compart- ment should be a clean agent type designed to displace oxygen, with an inert gas, such as CO2, or FE-36, and have a ca- pacity 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 caps are se- curely installed. To check the access port caps: (1) Open the rear platform hatch. (See page

63 for information on the rear platform hatch.)

(2) Make sure that the access port caps are securely installed. If they are removed or are not locked, securely install them. (See page 126 for information on the ac- cess port caps.)

Jet intake checks Carefully check the jet intakes under the boat for weeds, debris, or anything else that might restrict the intake of water. If the intakes are clogged, cavitation could occur, reducing jet thrust, and possibly damaging jet pump parts.

1 Jet intake

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

off the engines, remove the main switch key, and then remove the engine shut-off cord (lanyard) from the engine shut-off switch.

Fuel system checks Check the fuel filler hoses and joints in the en- gine compartment for damage, looseness, and signs of leaking. At least annually, or if a problem is suspected, check the fuel tank and fuel filler hoses and clamps. Have a Yamaha Boat Dealer check the fuel tank and fuel filler hoses and clamps. WARNING! If there are signs of leaking fuel, do not op- erate the boat until the source of the fuel leak is found and corrected. Gasoline and its vapors are highly flammable and explo- sive.

Engine oil level check Make sure that the engine oil level is between the minimum level mark and maximum level mark on the dipstick. (See page 80 for infor- mation on checking the engine oil level.)

Bilge water check Make sure that no bilge water has collected in the engine compartment. If bilge water has collected in the engine compartment, drain it.

(See page 81 for information on draining the bilge water.)

Drain plug check Loosen the drain plug and remove it, and then make sure that the plug and the O-ring on the hull drain plug is not damaged and that there is no foreign material on the threads or the O-ring on the hull drain plug. NOTICE: Before installing the drain plug, clean the drain plug threads and the O-ring on the hull drain plug to remove any foreign ma- terials, such as dirt or sand. Otherwise, the drain plug could be damaged, allowing water to enter the engine compartment. Make sure that the drain plug is tightened securely before launching the boat. Other- wise, water may flood the boat and cause it to submerge. Securely install the drain plug by tightening it until it stop.

Operation

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.

Learning to operate your boat Before boating, always perform the pre-oper- ation checks listed on page 85. 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 ve- hicles. Do not operate where people are swimming.

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. 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 pre- vent you from avoiding an accident.

Gasoline vapors can explode. Before starting the engines, check the engine compartment for gasoline, gasoline va- pors, and loose electrical connections, and then operate the blowers for at least 4 minutes. Do not start the engines or operate the blowers if you can smell gasoline vapors in the engine compart- ment or if there are any loose electrical connections. Contact a Yamaha Boat Dealer if there is a problem you cannot locate or correct.

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

1021 kg (2250 lb) Total weight of operator and passen- gers:

844 kg (1860 lb)

Operation

97

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

Do not apply throttle when anyone is at the rear of the boat. Turn the engines 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 obstacle. You could be injured. Peb- bles or sand can also be sucked into the jet intakes, damaging the impel- lers.

NOTICE

There is a hull drain plug at the bottom of the stern. Check the O-ring on the hull drain plug and make sure that the plug is tightened securely before launching the boat. Otherwise, water may flood the boat and cause it to submerge.

TIP: The engines will not start when the clip is re- moved from the engine shut-off switch. The starter motors will turn over without the cord attached. (5) Put the remote control levers in the neu-

tral position. The starter motors will not operate unless the remote control levers are in neutral.

(6) Turn the main switch keys to the start po- sition and release it when the engines start. If the engines do not start after 5 seconds of cranking, release the keys. Wait at least 15 seconds before trying to start the engines again.

NOTICE

Never turn the main switch keys to the start position while the engines are run- ning. The starter mechanism could be damaged.

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.

On this boat, the engines are connected di- rectly to the drive units. Starting either engine generates some thrust immediately. Only enough throttle should be applied to keep the engine at a fast enough idle to stay running.

Stopping the engines

WARNING

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

Stopping the engines immediately after oper- ating at high engine speeds is not recom- mended. Let the engines cool off at idle or low speed for a few minutes first. To stop the engines: (1) Return the remote control levers to the

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

tion.

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

engine 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 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

moored to the dock, turn the steering wheel toward the dock. Moving the re- mote control levers 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 steering wheel to the center position or away from the dock. Move the remote

control levers into the reverse position and move away from the dock.

Turning the boat

WARNING

Do not pull the remote control levers 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 pumps. As the pressurized water is expelled from the pumps through the jet thrust nozzles, it cre- ates thrust to move and steer the boat. The higher the engine speed, the more thrust is produced. 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_F4A13.book Page 99 Friday, July 3, 2020 12:57 PM

100

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

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.

D. If the boat is moving and the remote con- trol levers are in neutral position, or if there is no thrust because the engines

are 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 9 passengers only. Never have more than 10 people in the boat. Passengers must sit in one of the seats and hold onto the hand- grips. 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 pas- senger seat in front of the helm is used, be sure the operators view ahead is not ob- structed.

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 com- pletely 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 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.

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 engines are running. Severe internal injuries can occur if wa-

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

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 engines are off, and then move to the stern of the boat.

(2) Pull out the ladder and climb up onto the swim platform. (See page 70 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 per-

son should board at a time by stepping into the boat. Never jump in. Avoid step- ping 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

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

No wind or current: Approach the dock at a shallow angle. Se- cure the bow to the dock, and then use en- gine 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- 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.

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 engines when the water is about 90 cm

(3 ft) deep from the bottom of the boat. Remember: turning is impossible with the engines 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 engines.

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 wa- ter. 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.

Wind or current

SportsBoat_F4A13.book Page 103 Friday, July 3, 2020 12:57 PM

104

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

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 by Yamaha, but can be performed if proper precautions are taken to help guard against prolonged environ- mental exposure and marine growth. Proper flushing of the cooling system is not possible with the boat in the water. In addi- tion, conditions such as stray electrical volt- age in the water, marine organisms, 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 exposed drive compo- nents. 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. See your dealer for additional preventative mainte- nance recommendations on mooring and/or saltwater use for your area. (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 111 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

63 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 126 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.

(7) Remove the hull drain plug. (See page 81.)

(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 compart- ment and bilge with dry rags.

(9) Reinstall the hull drain plug. NOTICE: Tighten the hull drain plug securely before launching the boat. Otherwise, water may flood the boat and cause it to submerge. Clean any foreign mate- rial, such as dirt or sand, from the threads and the O-ring on the hull drain plug before installing the drain plugs.

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

(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.

(12) Turn the battery switch in the battery compartment to the OFF position. (See page 30 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 ca-

pacity 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 exceed the GVWR.

Hitch The trailer hitch ball must match the size of the socket on the trailer hitch coupler. Hitch- es are divided into classes that specify the Gross Trailer Weight (GTW) and the maxi- mum tongue weight. Always use a hitch rated for the same or higher class. Use a bolted-on or welded-on hitch; clamp-on bumper hitch- es 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 trail-

er 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. Secure 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 126 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 all hatches are se- cured.

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

towing 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 85 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 towing 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 engines are warm and are responding 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

towing 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 observer while standing to the side of the trailer. Stop when the tops of the trailers fenders are about 3 inches above the waterline.

(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.

(7) Perform the post-operation checks on page 105.

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 care- fully.

Care and storage

Post-operation care Flushing the cooling system Cooling system flushing is essential to pre- vent the cooling system from clogging up with salt, sand, or dirt. (1) Connect the garden hose adapter to a

garden hose.

1 Garden hose adapter 2 Garden hose

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

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

(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 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.

(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 flamma- ble 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 hull drain plug. (See page 82

for hull drain plug removal and installa- tion procedures.)

1 Hull drain plug

(2) Clean the hull, boat interior, and drive unit with Yamaclean Wash & Wax Con- centrate, or a mild natural soap, and wa- ter. 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 114.

(3) 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.

(4) Open the rear platform hatch. (See page 63 for rear platform hatch opening and closing procedures.)

(5) Remove the access port cap to let any water drain that has pooled on it. (See page 126 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 126 for more in- formation.)

(6) Securely install the hull drain plug by tightening it until it stop. NOTICE: Be- fore installing the hull drain plug, clean the drain plug thread and O-ring to re- move any foreign materials, such as dirt or sand. Otherwise, the hull drain plug could be damaged, allowing wa- ter to enter the hull. Check the O-ring on the hull drain plug and make sure that the hull drain plug is tightened se- curely before launching the boat. Oth- erwise, water may flood the boat and cause it to submerge.

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

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

(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.

(10) 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. To remove the battery: (1) Turn the battery switch to the OFF posi-

tion. (See page 30.) (2) Disconnect the ground lead (black) 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 (black)

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 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.

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) 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 in freezing tem- perature, requires preventative maintenance to ensure against deterioration. It is advisable to have the boat serviced by an authorized Yamaha Boat Dealer before storage. Howev- er, the following procedures can be per- formed by the owner with a minimum 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 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.

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 nozzles. Extend the steering cable and shift cable inner wires and apply a thin coat of grease to them.

Recommended water-resistant grease: YAMALUBE MARINE GREASE or Yamaha Grease A

Care and storage

117

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

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.

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 both main switch

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

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

The impellers have sharp edges. Be careful when reaching into jet pump ar- eas.

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,

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

(2) Open the rear platform hatch. (See page 63.)

(3) Check that the retaining cord is securely attached to the access port cap and strap eye.

1 Retaining cord 2 Strap eye

(4) While holding the handle and pushing down, turn the access port cap counter- clockwise until the SET mark is aligned with the slot, and then lift the cap by the handle.

NOTICE

Do not lift or pull the cap with the retain- ing cord.

Set the cap where it cannot be acciden- tally knocked overboard.

TIP: The rear platform hatch has interlocks to shut off the engines should the hatch be acciden- tally opened during operation. The engines 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 bat- tery or fuel vapors, which could cause an explosion.

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 56.) (2) Unfasten the band.

Towing the boat

WARNING

The operator of the towing boat must keep speed to a minimum and avoid traffic 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 damage could result because water can flood the non-operating engine through the water intake.

This excellent Y.E.S. plan coverage is only available to Yamaha owners like you, and only while your Yamaha is still within the first year of the Yamaha Limited Warranty period. So visit your authorized Yamaha dealer to get all the facts. He can show you how easy it is to protect your investment with Yamaha Extended Service. We urge you to act now. Youll get the excellent benefits of TRIP coverage right away, and youll rest easy knowing youll have strong factory-backed protection even after your Yamaha Limited Warranty expires. See your dealer today!

A special note:

If visiting your dealer isnt convenient, contact Yamaha with your Primary ID number or Hull Identification Number. Well be happy to help you get the Y.E.S. coverage you need.

Yamaha Service Marketing P.O. Box 6555 Cypress, CA 90630 1-(866)-YES-EXTD (1-866-937-3983)

Y.E.S. is flexible. You choose the plan thats right for you: 12 months, 24 months, 36 months, or up to 48 months on certain mod- els beyond the 1-year warranty coverage pe- riod. That means you can get up to 5 years of coverage on the power train, controls, and other components to match the comforting 5-year standard protection on the hull.

Y.E.S. is designed and administered by the same Yamaha people who handle your war- rantyand it shows in the comprehensive coverage benefits. There are no limitations on hours of use. Coverage isnt limited to moving parts or the drive train like many other plans. And Y.E.S. covers manufactur- ing defects just like the warranty. See the sample contract at your Yamaha dealer to see how comforting uninterrupted factory- backed protection can be.

You dont have to pay anything for cov- ered repairs. Theres no deductible to pay, and repairs arent prorated. You dont have any out-of-pocket expenses for covered repairs.

In addition, Travel and Recreation Interruption Protection (TRIP) is included at no extra cost. TRIP gives you up to $250 reimbursement per occurrence for any rea-

sonable expenses you incur because your Yamaha needs covered service: replace- ment vehicle rental, emergency towing, phone calls, even food and lodging when you are away from home. This superb cov- erage goes into effect when you purchase Y.E.S., so it applies to any warranty repairs as well as covered repairs during your entire Y.E.S. plan period.

Y.E.S. coverage is honored at any autho- rized Yamaha dealer nationwide.

Y.E.S. coverage is transferable to a new owner if you sell or trade-in. That can make your Yamaha Boat much more valuable!
