tends below the hull. Water strikes the tube inlet and
creates positive pressure. The faster the boat speed,

at the pick-up assembly and at the gauge and blow
through the tubing to remove the water.
DO NOT rely on the speedometer when trying to
achieve a “NO WAKE” condition in a harbor or
other enclosed waterway. ALWAYS reduce
throttle! Speedometers are not effective at mea-
suring low operational speeds. You are respon-
sible for damage caused by the wake of your
Theelectronic speedometer on the 234 and 254 Candia
FS has a paddle wheel sender. This speedo sender
provides accurate incremental readings (+/- 1.5 MPH)
at low speeds as well as high speeds. The speedom-
eter pick-up is located on the transom. See Figure E7.
The paddle wheel extends below the hull.
C. Temperature Gauge
As the boat is moving, water strikes the wheel making
it spin. The information is relayed to the speedometer
which displays the speed in miles per hour (MPH). The
faster the boat speed, the faster the paddle wheel turns,
and the higher the speed indication on the speedome-
The temperature gauge monitors the cooling system of
the engine. Asudden increase in the temperature could
be a signal of a blocked cooling passage or a water pump
The temperature indicator on the 234/254 Candia FS
module monitors the coolant temperature. If the cool-
ant temperature rises to, or above 213 degrees F an
alarm will sound a single beep every two seconds and
the temperature telltale will illuminate.
New for 2000 is that the paddle wheel is capable of
determining the water temperature. It is equipped with
a temperature sensor and relays this information to the
module for display.
Operation of an overheated engine can result in
engine seizure. If an unusually high tempera-
ture reading occurs, shut the engine off immedi-
