Carbon Monoxide!
Carbon monoxide (CO) can be harmful or fatal
if inhaled.  Brain damage or  death can result
from prolonged exposure to carbon monoxide.
Keep exhaust outlets clear of blockage.  Pro-
vide  adequate  ventilation.    Open  hatches,
doors, windows and vents to insure adequate
ventilation.  Close engine compartment doors
and hatches when engine or generator is run-
ning.  Avoid  operating the boat  for extended
periods of time at idle speed, and be sensitive
to weather conditions that may prevent CO from
dissipating into the air.  Do not stand or swim
near engine or generator  exhausts when en-
gines are running.

Navigation Lights
Navigation lights  are intended to  keep other vessels
informed of your presence and course.  If you are out
on the water between sunset and sunrise, you are re-
quired to display appropriate navigation lights.
Carbon monoxide  accumulation is  affected by  many
variables (e.g., boat geometry, hatch, window and door
opening,  ventilation openings, proximity to other struc-
tures, swim platforms, canvas enclosures,  location of
exhaust outlets, vessel attitude, wind direction, vessel
speed, boat systems maintenance, etc.) The technical
information included in this section is to inform the boat
owner of possible cause and effects of carbon monox-
ide exposure. This information has been reprinted with
permission from theAmerican Boat and Yacht Council’s
(ABYC) technical information  report:  “Educational In-
formation About Carbon  Monoxide”.  This  information
pertains to all gasoline powered boats manufactured by
Four Winns.
