DO NOT inhale exhaust fumes! Exhaust con-
tains carbon monoxide which is colorless and
odorless. Carbon monoxide is a dangerous gas
that is potentially lethal.
DO NOT attempt to service any engine without
being totally familiar with the safe and proper
service procedures. Do not attempt to maintain
or adjust an engine while it is running. Certain
moving parts are exposed and failing to shut off
the engine can result in serious injury or death.
Persons overcome by carbon monoxide may
exhibit the following symptoms:
a.   Watering and itchy eyes
b.   Flushed appearance
c.   Throbbing temples
d.   Inattentiveness
e.   Inability to think coherently
f.   Ringing in the ears

h.   Headache
Four Winns does not manufacture engines. Because of
the technical nature of the engines, all manufacturers of
these items require that warranty and service problems
be taken directly to an authorized dealer for resolution.
The Four Winns dealer from whom you purchased your
boat will handle all warranty and service matters with
the engine manufacturer for you.

In compliance with the Federal Boat Safety Act of
all engine manufacturers require their products
to be registered. A registration card is furnished with
each new engine. When selling a Four Winns® boat,
the dealer, along with the purchaser, should complete
the information requested on these cards and return
them to the respective engine manufacturers. Engine
registration cards are provided with the engine and will
usually be found with the owner’s information packet.
Each manufacturer of the various marine power
components provides an owners information manual
with their product. This publication is included with this
manual. It is important that you read the manual(s)
carefully and become completely familiar with proper
care and operation of the engine system. Be sure to
read the section on winterization. Replacement costs

The following suggestions can help prevent exhaust
fumes from entering the boat:
DO NOT allow the boat to remain stationary with
the engine running for an extended period of time.
Do not stand or swim near the exhaust output or
outdrive when the engine is idling.
Use extreme caution while operating the engine
in confined areas such as enclosed slips or con-
gested piers. Operation under such conditions
could easily lead to exhaust gasses (carbon mon-
oxide) entering even though you may have all the
hatches, windows, doors and portholes closed.
Also review the other sections in this manual, espe-
cially Sections I on Fuel Systems, and Section F on
Control Systems.
The carbon monoxide in exhaust fumes can be haz-
ardous. It is important for you and your passengers
to be aware of the potential safety hazard created by
exhaust fumes. Familiarize yourself with the symptoms
of individuals overcome by carbon monoxide, and most
importantly, ways you can protect yourself and your
3.   Persons sleeping can be easily overcome by
carbon monoxide because they are unaware of
its presence. Sleeping while the engine is running
is not recommended. If persons are sleeping
aboard while underway, those awake should
monitor for carbon monoxide accumulation in the
cabin; especially the sleeping areas.
