2011 Four Winns V335 Boat Owners Manual

D.  Propeller
F.   Operation By Minors
Minors should always be supervised by an adult
whenever operating a boat.  Many states have laws
regarding the minimum age and licensing require-
ments of minors. Be sure to check local laws or
contact the state boating authorities for information.
Personal Injury!
Do not allow anyone near a propeller, even
when the engine is off. Propeller blades can
be sharp and continue to turn even after the
engine is shut off. Do not allow anyone near
the propeller when the throttle is in neutral
position. Accidently engaging the shift can
result in a serious injury or death. (See actual
ladder warning labels  and helm boarding
ladder warning label below).
G.   “Rules of the Road”
As a responsible boater, you must comply with the
“Rules of the Road,” the marine traffic laws enforced
by the US Coast Guard. Navigating a boat is much
the same as driving an automobile. Operating either
one responsibly means complying with a set of rules
intended to prevent accidents. Just as you assume
other car drivers know what they are doing, other
boaters assume you know what you are doing.
Information regarding navigational rules and the
“Rules of the Road” are discussed in further detail
in C-1 & C-2 of the next section.
Never approach or use ladder when motor is
running. Severe injury or death will result from
contact with rotating propeller.
Ladder Warning Label
H.   Voluntary Inspections
Shut off motor when near swimmers. Severe
injury or death will result from contact with
rotating propeller.
State boating officials in many states or the US Coast
Guard Auxiliaries offer courtesy inspections to check
out your craft. They will check for compliance with
safety standards and required safety equipment. You
may voluntarily consent to one of these inspections,
and you are allowed to make corrections without
prosecution. Check with the appropriate state agency
or the Coast Guard Auxiliary for details.
Helm Boarding Ladder Warning Label
When pulling skiers do not turn on the engine
until you are at least a boat length away from
the person in the water. When approaching a
downed skier, turn off the engine at least one
boat length away before reaching the skier in
the water.
Safe Boating Courses
The local US Coast Guard Auxiliary and the US
Power Squadrons offer comprehensive safe boating
classes several times a year. You may contact the
Boat/US Foundation at 1-800-336-BOAT (2628) or,
in Virginia, 1-800-245-BOAT (2628) for a course
scheduled in your area. Also contact the US Coast
Guard Auxiliary or Power Squadron Flotilla for the
time and place of their next scheduled class.
E.   First Aid
As a boater, you should be familiar with the basic first
aid procedures that may be needed while you are out
far from help. Fish hook accidents or minor cuts and
abrasions may be the most serious mishaps on board
a boat but you should also learn the proper proce-
dures and be ready to deal with the truly serious
problems like mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, excessive
bleeding, hypothermia, and burns. First aid literature
and courses are available through most Red Cross
