EXPERIENCE. THE DIFFERENCE OWNER’S MANUAL ADDENDUM Dear New Four Winns Boat Owner: First of all Four Winns would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to our Four Winns family! Due to marketplace demands, dealer requests and standards preset by the marine industry, Four Winns has changed some of our product line accordingly. The biggest change has resulted in designator changes to certain 2002/2003 boat models.
This designator change allows Four Winns to be more competitive in today’s marketplace yet without sacrificing quality or value to our customers. Below we have included a matrix that indicates the new designations to help clarify the designator changes for model year 2002/2003: 2001 DESIGNATORS 2002/2003 DESIGNATORS 2001 DESIGNATORS 2002/2003 DESIGNATORS N/A 170 FREEDOM IO* 210 HORIZON IO 220 HORIZON IO N/A 180 FREEDOM IO** 230 HORIZON IO 240 HORIZON IO 170 HORIZON LE IO 170 HORIZON IO (N/A-03) N/A 205 SUNDOWNER 170 HORIZON LE OB 170 HORIZON OB (N/A-03) N/A 225 SUNDOWNER 180 HORIZON LE IO 180 HORIZON IO (2002 ONLY) N/A 245 SUNDOWNER 180 HORIZON LE OB 180 HORIZON OB (2002 ONLY) 214 FUNSHIP I/O 214 FUNSHIP I/O N/A 180 HORIZON IO (NEW-2003) 234 FUNSHIP I/O 234 FUNSHIP I/O 180 HORIZON IO 190 HORIZON IO 254 FUNSHIP IO 264 FUNSHIP IO 190 HORIZON IO 200 HORIZON IO 338 VISTA INBOARD 348 VISTA INBOARD 200 HORIZON IO 210 HORIZON IO (N/A-03) *Base model 170 Horizon.

Using the matrix above you can identify the model that pertains to your current model Four Winns. In general the manual included in your owner’s packet is model specific for your Four Winns boat with the exception of the designator change. There have been some additional changes besides just designators that we have incorporated in an addendum to assist you. The manual and addendum, used in conjunction, are intended to provide you with a basic understanding of safety and operations of your boat. Please read them carefully before operating your boat. We believe that you will find our manuals comprehensive and extremely helpful. Again, please read the current manual and your owner’s manual addendum carefully. Many instructions may require direct performance of the activity to fully understand the correct method. If you choose to read the owner’s manual and addendum at home, please remember to take them to the boat with you. The manual and addendum will acquaint you with the use and maintenance of your new Four Winns. These manuals provide special information critical to the safety of the passengers, and longevity of the equipment. Four Winns continually strives to improve its products. Unit specifications, including standard and optional equipment are constantly being modified. Equipment availability is also subject to change. The most current and accurate information available at the time of publication will be included in the owner’s manual addendum.
