Keep emergency stop switch lanyard free from
obstructions that could interfere with its opera-
tion. Do not modify or remove emergency stop
switch or bypass its safety features. The proper
use of the emergency stop switch will prevent
a runaway boat situation which can cause se-
vere personal injury or death.
In case of fire do not open the engine compart-
ment. Shut down engine(s), generator(s), and
blower(s). Discharge entire contents of fixed
fire suppression system, if equipped. If using
portable CO2 fire extinguisher continuously dis-
charge entire contents. On European models,
discharge contents through fire port.
Using a portable fire extinguisher with an ac-
cess/fire port in the engine compartment is pre-
ferred to opening the engine compartment to
fight the fire. However, using a portable extin-
guisher in this way provides less protection
against fire than a fixed suppression system.
Do not test fire extinguishers by squirting small
amounts of the extinguishing compound. The
fire extinguisher might not work when you re-
ally need it.
The Funship™ models are considered to be Class 1
powerboats (16 to less than 26 feet). Since they have
permanently installed fuel tanks, they are required to
carry one (1) B-1 type hand portable fire extinguisher.
Figure B6: Emergency Stop Switch

hand portable fire extinguisher is still required.

sponsible for assuring that all required safety
equipment is aboard and meets the boating
regulations as prescribed by both federal and
local authorities in your area.
Visual distress signal devices approved by the U.S.
Coast Guard are required on all recreational boats op-
erating on coastal waters and to boats owned in the
United States when they are operating on the high seas.
Coastal waters include territorial seas and those wa-
Hand-held portable extinguisher(s) should be mounted ters directly connected to the Great Lakes and the ter-
in a readily accessible location(s) away from the en- ritorial seas up to a point where the waters are less
gine compartment. All persons aboard should know than two miles (3.2km) wide. Visual distress signal
the location(s) and proper operation of the fire equipment may be of the pyrotechnic or non-pyrotech-
nic type. Regulations prohibit display of visual distress
signals on the water under any circumstances except
when assistance is required to prevent immediate or
potential danger to persons on board a vessel.
