Comments:  
Affected boats do not conform to 33 CFR 183.460(a). The wiring harness is not fused in close enough proximity to the battery switch. In case of overcurrent the unprotected cable could cause a fire in the engine room. The repair will entail installation by Yamaha dealers of an in-line fuse kit less than 7 inches from the battery.
