2007-2008 Four Winns Vista 338 Boat Owners Manual

Always secure the ladder before boating.
Damage to the ladder may otherwise result.
The 338 Vista  models are designed with an integrat-
ed bow platform. This bow platform provides a
functional base for anchoring. The anchor is stored in
the anchor chute of the platform. The anchor roller
provides support for the chain/rope and anchor. See
Figure M12. Refer to Chapman’s Piloting, Seaman-
ship and Small Boat Handling or local anchorage
authority for anchor type and size recommendation.
The transom systems locker contains the aft shower,
aft shower mixer, dockside power inlet, AC main
circuit breaker switches, air conditioner power inlet, air
conditioner circuit breaker switches, phone/cable TV
inlet and the city water inlet. The storage locker uses a
flush-mounted latch for easy access. To open, lift the
handle. A gas-assist lift holds the locker door open for
convenience. The locker door is designed to be closed
after connecting to shore power and city water. See
Figure M10.
To prevent a possible man overboard situation,
NEVER stand on, or try to utilize the bow
platform in any way while the boat is under-

The transom storage provides storage for such things
as dock fenders, personal flotation devices, dockside
power cord(s) etc. The storage lockers use latches for
easy access. To open, lift the handle. The latches are
flush mounted to prevent injury or accidental opening.
Gas-assist lifts hold the locker door open for ease of
use. See Figure M11.
An optional windlass is an electrically controlled winch
mechanism for retrieving the anchor available on the
Vista® model. The mechanical winch portion is
mounted inside the anchor locker, at the bow. See
Figure M13. The windlass can be controlled by a set
of foot pads (electrical switches) mounted on the
foredeck or it can be operated from the helm. A circuit
breaker on the battery switch is provided to protect the
windlass from a possible overload situation. A circuit
breaker at the 12VDC helm breaker panel is also
provided to protect the windlass circuit. Refer to the
manufacturer’s literature included in the owner’s
packet for windlass operation.
