2011 Four Winns F-Series Boat Owners Manual

H.   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.
Carbon monoxide (CO) can be harmful or fatal
if inhaled. Brain damage or death can result
from prolonged exposure to carbon monox-
ide. 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 run-
ning. 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.

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, loca-
tion 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
factors may contribute to carbon monoxide
accumulation. The most common ones are
listed in this section. If a person is exhibiting
carbon monoxide-type symptoms (Refer to B-
2E Symptoms), be sure to take the necessary
precautions as prescribed later in this section.
Boats fueled by diesel have limited carbon
monoxide present in the exhaust in compari-
son to gasoline engine exhaust. However, the
boat owner should still be aware of the causes
and effects of carbon monoxide which may
occur in different boating situations.
