Graphic/Decal Install Instructions

BEFORE YOU BEGIN:

- Required Items include an installation squeegee (included), masking tape, glass cleaner, dry paper towels, measuring tape or ruler.

- Do not apply any vinyl graphics in direct sunlight. Make sure it is between 60 degrees and 80 degrees F

- Do not store unapplied graphics in direct sunlight - damage may occur.

- All dirt, grease and wax must be removed from the car surface before the decal is applied. This includes wax from mechanical car washes, rain-x, compound, etc. Failure to take this step may result in the decal not sticking to the vehicle surface.


SURFACE PREPARATIONS

All surfaces must be free of wax, dirt, and old adhesive residue before applying your vinyl graphics to ensure proper adhesion. Make sure the area is clean, peeling or lifting can occur.


Fiberglass Boats: Clean with acetone or 3M General Purpose Adhesive Remover (our preferred cleaner). After the solvent has evaporated, wipe the area down with soapy water (a few drops of dish soap mixed with water in a spray bottle).


UNPACK THE SHIPPING CONTAINER

Remove decals from packaging.  Lay flat on a smooth table in an area that is at least 60° F and below 80° F.


SIMPLE INSTALLATION

1. Clean area where the decal will be applied.

2. Remove the paper back.

3. Start from one end and carefully press the decal into its desired position while working out air pockets.

4. Carefully remove clear covering making sure you do not rip the decal.


There A Shelf Life For The Vinyl Graphics/Decals.  The Manufacturer Recommends 1-Year Shelf Life.

Motor Box Aluminum Trim  -  SKU I-1011

The aluminum motor box trim is shipped with the 12 foot piece rolled and the 2 foot piece straight. It is the only cost effective way to ship it. You can roll it out straight by doing it on the edge of a sheet of plywood or any straight edge. You then mark the middle of the trim with a grease pencil or crayon. Using the ski pole or a pole outside of the boat is better, if available, about the same size and make the bend using the old trim as a reference making sure you are bending the correct side of the trim. Once that bend is made, with some help, drill and rivet the bend to the motor box using at least 3 rivets. Now you can work your way around each way drilling and riveting as you go. If you had the center mark on the trim centered in the bend on the motor box for the ski pylon, then the ends of the trim should be in the same place on the rear of the motor box. You then cut the 2 foot piece to fill the area between the ends. This should all be apparent when looking at the old trim.

Motor Box if it with Carpet Attached

When Installing your Motor Box skin. This skin may require 2 people to install.  If your Motor Box comes with carpet attached to the skin, DO NOT pull on the carpet when installing the skin. Pull on the vinyl underneath. You can tape the carpet up and out of your way while you are pulling the skin to the desired position. Apply Slip Film to about 2 inches from bottom of box. Glue the inside of the motor box and the inside of the skin up about 2-3 inches from the bottom. Do all 4 corners first. Starting at the back 2 then move to the front 2. The sides should not have to be pulled very hard if the corners are in the correct positions. Do the carpet in the same order. The carpet has to be butted and glued or hand sewn at the corners after the skin is installed. Gluing is the better choice. A small scissor cut on the upper inside of the folded carpet may be needed to make the corners adjust properly to the bottom of the motor box. Making the carpet in one piece makes it impossible to install without a steam box therefore it most likely will be in 4 pieces to help with the application.

Programing Instructions for Nautique Keypad 2003-2011

The new Keypad you have received is shipped to you “without code”. If you install the keypad and do none of the programing steps below, the boat will function without having to enter a code. You can simply press start and the boat will power up.

The tools needed for programing the new Key Pad include: Master Code for boat (please contact us with your HULL ID Number if you are unsure of your master code) and your finger (used for pressing the buttons).  With the master code in hand, and power to the PME/Keypad (IE batter switch is ON), make sure all indicator lights are OFF.

Programming the Master User Code

NOTICE

The system operates as follows:

1. Press START to unlock the system.

2. Press it a second time to start the engine.

3. Press STOP to turn off the engine.

4. Press it a second time to lock the system. The system indicator light should be OFF.

PLEASE NOTE THE SETUPS ABOVE WERE ONLY CREATED TO ENSURE THE USER/BOAT ARE IN THE CORRECT STATE AND USER KNOWS HOW PROPER OPERATION SHOULD BE. There is no need to really do that. Just make sure the keypad has power to turn on, then turn it off.  To program the Master User Code, make sure the system indicator light is off, then press the 1/2 key and the 7/8 key at the same time to put the system in the Code Programming Mode. The system indicator light will flash.

Enter a code from two to eight characters and press START. For verification, re-enter the code and press START again. The system Indicator light should stop flashing and stay ON. If the light does not stop flashing, press STOP and begin again.

At this point the keypad should have a master code stored it in. NOTE the key pad will still be able to start the boat without entering a code. Follow the SAME steps to program the Primary User Code. After programing the primary user code, the keypad will not be able to power on or off without entering a code
