The rail system and hardware ﬁttings have been
selected and installed to perform speciﬁc func tions.
Fenders or mooring lines should not be secured to the
rails or stanchions. Be certain that a clear lead exists
when running dock lines or an anchor line. A line inad-
vertently threaded around a stanchion or over the rail
could cause damage.
Four Winns® Boats are not equipped with any
hardware designed for towing purposes. The
mooring cleats that are installed on the boat
are not to be used for towing another vessel
or having the boat towed. Refer to Section A -
Operation for additional precautions regarding
grounding and towing.
The cleats that have been installed are speciﬁcal ly de-
signed and are intended to be used as mooring cleats.
Their purpose is for securing the vessel to a dock, pier,
mooring, or anchor.
C. Transom Ski Tow
The transom ski tow is mounted on the transom above
the swim platform. It is available on all F series mod-
els. All these models should pull up two skiers under
normal boating conditions. However, Four Winns rec-
ommends no more than two skiers be pulled behind
the boat at any time.
An optional pull-up style cleat is available on certain
models. The pull-up cleat gives your boat a more sleek
style. When you desire to use the cleat, simply pull up
on the cleat. When ﬁnished with the cleat, push in and
the cleat will remain in its retracted position until the
next time you desire to use it. See Figures M-1 and M-2.
Please consult your Four Winns dealer for details.
Do not use ski tow ﬁtting for lifting or parasail-
ing. Fitting could pull out of deck resulting in
serious injury or death.
To prevent personal injury or damage to the
boat, DO NOT tow more than two water skiers
with the transom mounted ski tow ring.
Skier’s weight, boating conditions, amount of
gear, and operator’s experience will affect the
number of skiers which can be pulled.
