Carbon Monoxide!
Carbon monoxide (CO) can be harmful or fatal
if inhaled. Brain damage or death can result
from prolonged exposure to carbon monoxide.
Keep exhaust outlets clear of blockage.
Provide adequate ventilation. Open hatches,
doors, windows and vents to insure adequate
ventilation. Close engine compartment doors
and hatches when engine or generator is
running. Avoid operating the boat for extended
periods of time at idle speed, and be sensitive
to weather conditions that may prevent CO
from dissipating into the air. Do not stand or
swim near engine or generator exhausts when
engines are running.
Navigation Lights
Navigation lights are intended to keep other vessels
informed of your presence and course. If you are out
on the water between sunset and sunrise, you are
required to display appropriate navigation lights.
Additional Recommended Equipment
Four Winns recommends that you acquire additional
equipment for safe, enjoyable cruising.  This list,
which is not all inclusive, includes items you should
consider acquiring.
Basic Gear
Oar, paddle
Dock fenders     Distress signals

Emergency supply of drinking water and food.
Carbon monoxide accumulation is affected by many
variables (e.g., boat geometry, hatch, window and
door opening, ventilation openings, proximity to other
structures, swim platforms, canvas enclosures,
location of exhaust outlets, vessel attitude, wind
direction, vessel speed, boat systems maintenance,
etc.) The technical information included in this section
is to inform the boat owner of possible cause and
effects of carbon monoxide exposure. This information
has been reprinted with permission from the American
Boat and Yacht Council’s (ABYC) technical informa-
tion report: “Educational Information About Carbon
Monoxide”. This information pertains to all gasoline
powered boats manufactured by Four Winns.

The boat owner should be aware that other

boat owner should still be aware of the causes
and effects of carbon monoxide which may
occur in different boating situations.
