2007-2008 Four Winns Vista 338 Boat Owners Manual

Electronic gauges are affected by static electricity that
builds-up on the glass face. Periodic washing of the
gauge face with warm water and mild liquid detergent
will help eliminate the static electricity problem and
improve gauge accuracy.
Figure E9: Compass
After all personal equipment is installed, including all
electronics (VHF radio, GPS, chart plotter, etc.), the
compass must be properly calibrated. DO NOT rely
on the compass readings until initial adjustment
(compensation) has been performed. The boat has a
factory installed compass, the manufacturer’s instruc-
tions are provided in the owner’s packet. Most areas
have local companies that specialize in compass
adjustment. If unsure of the proper compensation
techniques, consider having the adjustment done
professionally to insure accuracy and confidence in
the compass.
During use, keep all extraneous metal objects
away from the compass. The close proximity of
metal objects (e.g., beverage cans) can cause
compass deviation.
M.  Instrument Maintenance
Electrical protection for instruments and ignition
circuitry is provided by a circuit breaker on the ignition
panel. Periodically, spray the ignition switches with a
contact cleaner. The ignition switches and all instru-
ments, controls, etc. should be protected from the
weather when not in use. Four Winns offers appropri-
ate weather covers for each model. Excessive expo-
sure can lead to gauge and ignition switch difficulties.
DO NOT use a product such as WD-40 as
a contact cleaner. Be sure to read the label
before using any product.
