Yamaha 60C Outboard Motor User Manual

Incorrect engine height or obstructions to
smooth water flow (such as the design or
condition of the boat or accessories such
as transom ladders/depth finder trans-
ducers) can create airborne water spray
while the boat is cruising. Severe engine
damage may result if the motor is operat-
ed continuously in the presence of air-
borne water spray.
During water testing check the buoyancy
of the boat, at rest, with its maximum
load. Check that the static water level on
the exhaust housing is low enough to pre-
vent water entry into the powerhead,
when water rises due to waves when the
outboard is not running.
