Rather than answer each of the posts, I thought I could have a new thread or sticky if the moderator can do that. This is meant for those new to boating !
When you buy a boat, new or used, there generally isn't ONE all-inclusive manual. There will be several booklets, one for the boat, one for the motor, one for the trailer. They are all made by seperate manufacturers. In addition, if you are lucky, there will be paperwork on boat systems such as radio, steering, controls, canvas & vinyl. My Godfrey dealer had all of that for me in a nice canvas bag, as the boat was new. It may be easier to research on the internet, or contact specific manufacturers. If you do post on here, please list the brand names, sizes, and hp.
I've had boats before, the last one was a Stingray. They have a brilliant website where you can find any part for your actual boat or motor based on their individual serial numbers, including manuals. I now have a Sweetwater 1780RE pontoon (2006)which needs a bit of love and care and would like to know is there a similar system within the Godfrey Marine website?
Forgot to ask a question. What is the flip switch on the console labelled AERATOR supposed to do?
Sound like a live well fill. The spray usually has a lot of air bubbles and serves to both fill and aerates water in the live well. Keeps bait and or fish alive. I actually have two live wells on my Sweetwater one forward and one aft.
