Stern drain plug checks
Loosen the stern drain plugs and remove
them, and then make sure that the plugs are
not damaged and that there is no foreign ma-
terial on the threads. NOTICE: Before in-
stalling the stern drain plugs, clean the
drain plug threads to remove any foreign
materials, such as dirt or sand. Otherwise,
the stern drain plugs could be damaged,
allowing water to enter the engine com-
partment. Make sure that the stern drain
plugs are tightened securely before
launching the watercraft. Otherwise, water
may flood the engine compartment and
cause the watercraft to submerge.
Securely install the stern drain plugs by tight-
ening them until they stop.
