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

Page 25

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 26

Do not pull the remote control levers 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...

Page 27

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 230...

Page 28

Attach the engine shut-off cord (lanyard) to the PFD and keep it free from the steering wheel or other controls so that the engines stop 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 keys to avoid accidental starting or unauthorized use by children or others...

Page 29

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 66, 86, and 135 for more infor- mation... )

Page 30

mote control levers 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 levers back to idle, but once the engines slow down, the boat will no longer respond to steering wheel input until you apply throttle again or you reach a trolling speed... Practice turning in an open area without obstructions until you have a good feel for the maneuver...

Page 31

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 66, 86, 114, and 135 for instructions... )

Page 32

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 33

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 34

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 35

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 37

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

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

Page 51

Battery switches (except for AR210 / SX210) The batteries and switch assembly are locat- ed in the rear underseat storage compart- ment (port)... This boat uses two marine batteries... One bat- tery is designated as the start battery... The start battery is connected to the starter cir- cuits on both engines to provide current for the starter motors... 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 lighting, bilge pump, blowers and audio system...

Page 52

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 engines are running... NOTICE: Do not turn the HOUSE switch to the OFF position if the boat is moored in the water as it will pre- vent the anchor light from functioning... If the start battery is discharged, turn the EMERG PARALLEL switch to the ON posi- tion to start the engines... Once the engines are started or the start battery is charged,

START/STOP buttons (212SE / 212SD / 212XE / 212XD) The engines can be started or stopped by pushing the START/STOP buttons... It is possible to start or stop the engines individu- ally... PORT: Port engine STBD: Starboard engine

Page 54

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... AR210 / SX210 / 212 / 212S: For cruising, ad- just the remote control levers so both engines are running at the same engine speed...

Page 55

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 56

Throttle/shift paddles (212SD / 212XD) When the DRiVE mode is activated, the throt- tle/shift paddles can be used at low speeds to control the throttle and shifting instead of the remote control levers... When making small throttle adjustments for docking, the operator can use the throttle/shift paddles to operate the boat smoothly forward and in re- verse while keeping both hands on the steer- ing wheel... (See page 104 for information on the DRiVE mode... ) When the operator pulls the throttle/shift

Page 57

212SD / 212XD: When the operator is using the throttle/shift paddles (DRiVE mode), the turning range of the steering wheel is approx- imately half the range of when the operator is using the remote control levers (running mode or single lever mode)... Although the turning range of the steering wheel changes depending on the operation mode, the move- ment of the jet thrust nozzles is adjusted au- tomatically so that the full range of motion for the nozzles matches the turning range re- gardless of the selected mode... (See page 104 for information on each operation mode... )

If this occurs, reduce the engine speed, return to shore or maneuver to a safe location, and check the engine oil level... (See page 152 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 72

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 64 for information on the no-wake mode...

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 engines...

Page 160

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, prevent new ones from form- ing, while also helping to keep fuel injectors and other fuel system components clean for proper performance and longer engine life...

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 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...

In addition, check that the direction of the artic- ulating keel changes according to the move- ment of the jet thrust nozzles...

Page 172

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...

Page 173

A FIRE-PORT is mounted below the rear center seat... Use this port to spray the con- tents of a fire extinguisher into the engine compartment if a fire breaks out in the engine area... WARNING! If there is a fire in the en- gine 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...

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 16... 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 185

(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 186

The starter motors may also be damaged if they are engaged con- tinuously for more than 5 seconds...

Page 189

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 190

C... Pulling the remote control levers back to idle or the 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 slow 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 191

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 105 m (344 ft) for the AR210 / SX210 or 140 m (459 ft) for the 212 / 212S / 212SE / 212SD / 212XE / 212XD 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 192

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...

Page 193

(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 194

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...

Page 195

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 on each engine is not possible with the boat in the water... In addition, conditions such as stray electrical voltage in the water, marine organisms, and saltwater corrosion can ad- versely affect the life of many boat compo- nents... NOTICE: Leaving the boat in the water for extended periods will accelerate the rate of normal deterioration of the ex- posed drive 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 areas... 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

Page 196

(6) Remove the access port caps to let any water drain that has pooled on them... (See page 214 for access port cap re- moval and installation procedures... ) If the boat will be stored on the trailer nearby, leave the caps out until you prepare to launch the boat again... If the boat will be transported on the trailer any distance, temporarily reinstall the caps and close the hatch until you get home... Open the hatch again when you arrive and remove the caps as before... Leave the caps loose until you plan to transport the boat on the trailer again... NOTICE: Leaving the ac- cess port caps out when you are not using or transporting the boat helps keep them from becoming stuck in the access ports...

Page 197

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 198

Be sure any cargo that must be carried in the boat as well as the folding windshield and all hatches are secured... A durable, properly fitting cover, such as the genuine Yamaha cover available from your Yamaha Boat Dealer designed specifically for your boat, is highly recommended to help pro- tect your boat during transport and stor- age...

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:

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 201

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 202

(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...

Page 203

(6) Securely install the hull drain plug by tightening it until it stops... NOTICE: Be- fore installing the hull drain plug, clean the drain plug threads and O-ring to remove 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...

(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

Page 206

Battery care (except for AR210 / SX210) 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 rear underseat storage compartment (port)... To remove the battery: (1) Turn the battery switch to the OFF (red)

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- tures instructions... (See page 150 for infor- mation 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 engines with treated fuel during cooling system flushing will also help protect the fuel system...

Page 209

Bearing housings Grease the bearing housings 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...

Owners/operators manual It is advisable to always carry the own- ers/operators manual with you whenever you use the boat...

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,

Raising the shift gates (212SE / 212SD / 212XE / 212XD) If the shift actuator malfunctions and the shift gates remain in the lowered position, the boat will not be able to move forward... After raising the shift gates so that the boat can move forward, immediately return to shore and have a Yamaha Boat Dealer ser- vice the boat... To raise the shift gates: (1) Stop the engines and remove the clip

(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 they are engaged continuously for more than 5 seconds...

Do not operate the boat above a no-wake speed with just one engine... Severe engine damage could result be- cause water can flood the non-operating engine through the water intake...

Page 235

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 engines through the water intakes...
