C.   Engine Ventilation System Maintenance
Periodic inspection and cleaning of the ventilation ducts
isnecessarytoensureadequateaircirculation.    Abuildup
of leaves,  twigs, or other  debris can  severely reduce
ventilation. Be sure bilge water does not accumulate to
a level that would obstruct the ventilation ducts.
All Four Winns® stern drive models are equipped with
enginecompartmentventilation.  Thissystemisdesigned
to meet or exceed the requirements (in effect at the time
of manufacture) of the U.S. Coast Guard, the National
Marine Manufacturers  Association, and the  American
Boat and Yacht Council.
Blower operation can be tested by placing a hand over
the vents. DO NOT rely on the sound of the blower. Be
sure a substantial amount of air is being exhausted by
the bilge blower.  Check the bilge blower system often,
preferably before each cruise.
A.   Gravity Ventilation System
The exhaust  ducting reaches to the  lower bilge area.
This provides adequate air movement while underway
and during bilge blower operation.
Should blower noise and vibration be excessive,  loos-
ening the bilge blower mounting screws and then tight-
ening evenly usually reduces noise considerably.
B.   Forced Air Ventilation
A.   Transom Drain
All Four Winns® models except outboards are equipped
with an electric bilge blower. The bilge blower provides
the ventilation required prior to starting the engines and
whileatidle.  SeeSectionH  ElectricalSystemsforblower
operation instructions.
A transom drain with plug is provided in the engine com-
partment to allow water drainage. When the boat is out
of the water, the boat and trailer should be positioned so
any bilge water accumulation during dry storage will flow
towards the transom.
Gasoline vapors  can explode resulting  in in-
jury or death. Before starting the engine, check
the engine compartment  bilge for gasoline  or
vapors, and operate blower for four (4) minutes,
and verify blower operation. Run blower when
vessel is operating below cruising speed. AL-
WAYS operate the  bilge blower while  the en-
gines are at idle.
Be sure the drain plug is securely in place prior
to launching the  boat.  Upon  shipment of the
boat, the drain plug is usually taped to the steer-
ing wheel.
B.   Bilge Pumps
A Gas Vapor  Detector is a monitor  which will
alert the operator of an accumulation of gaso-
line fumes in the engine compartment. It is op-
tional only on larger models but can be installed
byyourFourWinns®dealer.   DONOTrelysolely
on detectors  or similar  equipment.  ALWAYS
conduct a  physical  inspection of  the engine
Bilge pumps are  provided in the  bottom of the hull  to
remove miscellaneous water accumulations that might
occur during normal boating or weather conditions. The
bilge pump is controlled  by the Bilge Pump Switch on
the dash panel. See Section H-3 for a detailed descrip-
tion of the bilge pump switches.
