Congratulations on your new boat purchase and welcome to our boating family!
We want your boating experience to be the most enjoyable possible. The more you know about your new boat,
the more you’ll enjoy the time you spend aboard. That’s why we prepared this manual. It’s your guide for safe
operation as well as understanding your boat’s system and equipment. It has been written for the beginning
boater but experienced boaters will find helpful information as well. Be sure to read the contents thoroughly.
The popularity of boating and other water sports has grown tremendously in the past few years. Because of
