    EMU00282 Bow Up When the boat is on plane, a bow-up atti- tude result in less drag, greater stability and efficiency. This is generally when the keel line of the boat is up about 3 to 5 degrees. When trimmed out, the boat may have more tendency to steer to one side or the other.

    EMH40011 DUAL ENGINE INSTALLATION/SINGLE ENGINE RUNNING Using only one of the engines in case of emergency, be sure to keep the unused one tilted up and operate the other engine 102043 at low speed. If the boat is operated with one engine in the water but not running, water may run into the exhaust pipe due to wave action, causing engine trouble.

  • Page 71: Tilting Up/down

    EMU01200 TILTING UP/DOWN If the engine will be stopped for some time, or if the boat is moored in shallows, the engine should be tilted up to protect the propeller and casing from damage by collision with obstructions, and also to reduce salt corrosion.

  • Page 72

    EMU01201 PROCEDURE FOR TILTING UP Power trim/tilt model 1) If there is a fuel joint or a fuel cock on the boat, disconnect the fuel line or close the fuel cock. 2) Push the power trim/tilt switch “UP” DOWN until the outboard has tilted up com- pletely.

  • Page 73: Cruising In Other Conditions

    4) Once the engine is supported with the tilt-support lever, push the power trim/tilt switch DOWN to retract the trim rods. Be sure to retract the trim rods complete- ly during mooring. This protects the rods from marine growths and corrosion 411014 which could damage the power trim/tilt mechanism.
