U-Wrap Lounger Seating
U-wrap (shaped) seating is found in most of the
Sundowner™ models. Alarge amount of storage space

the Sundowner™ models have a 36-quart removable
cooler located under the hinged seat cushion. See Fig-
ures N10, N11 & N12.
The engine hatch can be lifted without the screw
jack(s). Use care and proper lifting techniques
to prevent possible back injury. Prop rod must
be properly placed to keep engine hatch in open
position when lifting manually.
Place the prop rod into the prop rod holders and
lower the hatch so the prop rod supports the
hatch. Note: Ensure you lower the screw jack(s)
to allow the engine hatch to rest on the rod.
Always use the engine hatch’s prop rod when
working on the engine. This provides added
safety while helping to prolong the life of the
screw jack(s) and engine hatch.
Never operate or trailer your boat with the en-
gine hatch in its open position. Doing so could
result in damage to the engine hatch, hardware,
and/or loss of cushions.
