Keys

Spoiler
 

In addition to the ignition keys that came with my new boat (South Bay 520 CR with Evinrude 90 Pontoon series), we also received two small round shaped keys. I have looked through all the documents I got with the motor and there is no mention anywhere of any thing like these keys. Any ideas?

 

I tried to attach a pic, but I do not think it worked. Keys have a round plastic base and the metal key part is round with a hollow center appearing about 1/2" long.

 

thanks.

 

FYI, we have only used this motor a short time so far having just taken delivery yesterday, but we are very impressed by how smooth it runs and how quiet it is.

Re: Keys

I got 2 with mine which was for hatch doors on the boat. Do you have any storage on your pontoon boat?

Actually if it wasn't plugged in the boat won't run those keys look like they would go for a glove bow or storage compartment

The keys are not part of your Evinrude but your dealer should be able to identify them for you.
