2003-2008 Four Winns Sundowner 205 225 245 285 Boat Owners Manual

Even with the best of boat design and construction plus
utmost care in inspection, operation, and maintenance
of boat systems,  hazardous levels of CO  may still be
present in accommodation spaces  and exterior areas
under certain conditions.   Vigilant observation of  pas-
sengers for CO sickness symptoms should be supple-
mented by a marine CO detection device in the accom-
modation space.
B.   Safe  Operation
Safe operation means that you do not misuse your boat
nor do you allow your passengers to do so.   Safe op-
eration means using  good judgement at  all times.  It
includes, without limitation, the following actions:
• Observe all safety signs and warnings both
inside the boat and in the immediate boating
ACO detector is not a gas/fuel vapor detector.
Gas/fuel vapor  detectors do  not monitor  the
buildup of  carbon  monoxide in  an enclosed
area.   For further information  on the design,
construction, and testing of boats in consider-
ation of carbon monoxide, see ABYC TH-23.
•  Become familiar with, and adhere to, the
“Rules of the Road”.
•  Maintain boat speed at or below the legal
limits.  Avoid excessive speed or speeds

tems on Boats”.
•  Be sure at least one other passenger is
familiar with the operation and the safety
aspects of the boat in case of an emergency.
Load the boat within the limits listed on the
capacity plate. Balance loads bow and stern
and port to starboard.
YOU are responsible for your own safety, the
safety of  your passengers, and the  safety of
fellow boaters.
•  Do not use the boat in bad weather or sea
conditions beyond the skill or experience of
the operator or the comfortable capability of
the boat or passengers.
A.   Drugs and Alcohol
Make sure the passengers and gear do not
obstruct the operator’s view or impede his
ability to move.
Alcohol consumption  and boating do  not
mix! Operating under the influence endan-
gers the lives of your passengers and other
boaters.  Federal laws prohibit operating a
boat  under  the  influence   of  alcohol  or
Do not exceed the maximum engine power
rating stated on the certification plate located
inside the boat.
C.  Passenger Safety
Do not use drugs or drink alcohol while operating a boat.
Like driving a car, driving a boat requires sober, atten-
tive care.  Operating a boat while intoxicated or under
the influence of drugs is not only  dangerous, but it  is
also a  Federal offense carrying a  significant penalty.
These laws are vigorously enforced. The use of drugs
and alcohol, singly or in combination, decreases reac-
tion time, impedes judgement,  impairs vision, and in-
hibits your ability to operate a boat.
Before getting underway, show all  passengers where
emergency and safety  equipment is stowed, and  ex-
plain how to use it. Everyone aboard should wear rub-
ber-soled shoes which resist slipping on wet surfaces.
While underway, passengers should remain seated in-
side the deck rails and gates. Do not allow passengers
to drag their  feet or hands  in the water.   Always use
handholds and other safety hardware to prevent falls.
All nonswimmers, poor  swimmers and small children
should wear PFDs at all times.
