For models with dual electronic binnacle
controls, consult the control manufacturer’s
manual included in your owner’s packet for the
engine synchronization procedures.
Any time the boat is operated, be aware of
changes in shift system operation. A sudden
increase in shift effort of the shifter levers, or
other abnormal operation, indicates a possible
problem in the shift system. If this occurs, the
following precautions must be taken:
B. Shifting and Control Speed
Move shift/throttle lever(s) to the neutral idle
position. Placing the shift/throttle levers in the
neutral detent position will engage neutral start
switch and allow engine to start.
With engine running and boat securely tied
to the dock, shift drive into forward and
reverse to ensure there is gear engage-
When docking the boat, all docking maneu-
vers must be performed at slow speed. Pay
special attention to other boaters. Passen-
gers should be informed of potential
For additional information, refer to the section
on “Starting and Operation” in the engine manu-
problems and precautions taken.
To go FORWARD - move the shift/throttle lever(s)
forward. Once forward gear engagement is
complete, push shift/throttle lever(s) forward until
desired speed is achieved.
If you suspect there is a problem, see your
, Crusader or Volvo Penta dealer as
soon as possible for proper diagnosis and required
service or adjustment. Continued operation could
result in damage to the shift mechanism and loss
. To go in REVERSE - move the shift/throttle
lever(s) rearward. Once rearward gear engage-
ment is complete, push shift/throttle lever(s)
rearward until desired speed is achieved.
F - 3 NEUTRAL SAFETY SWITCH
Every control system has a neutral safety switch incor-
porated into it. This device prohibits the engine from
being started while the shift lever is in any position
other than the neutral position. If the engine will not
start, slight movement of the shift lever may be
necessary to locate the neutral position and disen-
gage the safety cutout switch. Control or cable
adjustments are required to correct this condition
should it persist. See your Four Winns dealer for
necessary control and cable adjustments.
DO NOT shift from forward to reverse when the
boat is planing.
DO NOT shift if engine speed is above 800
To go from FORWARD to REVERSE, or RE-
VERSE to FORWARD; always pause at NEU-
TRAL and allow engine speed to return to idle.
The dual electronic binnacle control is equipped with a
“Neutral Start Protection” option. This feature prevents
the engine(s) from starting when the boat is in gear.
The engine can only be started when the transmission
is in neutral. See the control manufacturer’s literature
in your owner’s packet for additional information.
After shifting is completed, slowly push throttle
lever(s) forward/rearward until desired speed
