Owners Manual 2001 SD217 with I/O
[8|]I purchased my SD217 early this year and everything seems to function as I would expect, however I do not have a manual to know for sure if I am operating correctly. The front deck hatch is where I am stowing my anchor but there is no liner so the anchor lays against the inside of the hull and also near electrical wiring. Not a good thing in my opinion. I have no idea of of how to maintain an I/O as I have always had smaller outboards. I learned that the alarm that sounds off when I turn the key on is for low oil pressure or cooling temp. It stops when the engine starts but it sure does get your attention. We love the boat, keep it at our marina which is walking distance from the house and have put about 20 hours on it so far. I have searched the internet and e-bay for a manual to no avail. but I sure would welcome a lead to a used or new manual.
