The helm station on Funships™ is equipped with a com-
plete set of individual engine instrument gauges. These
instrument gauges allow the boat operator to constantly
monitor the operational condition of the engine. Close
observation of these instrument gauges could save the
engine from damage. See Figure E3.
The power trim system permits control of the trim angle
of the drive relative to the boat, at the touch of a button.
It allows the drive to be raised for shallow water opera-

drive while underway to provide the ideal running angle
for a given load and water condition. Additional infor-
