  4. Re: Will my CO2 tank serve as an extra fire extinguisher?

    The unregulated part is a problem I'd think. How many PSI? Bottled gases are dangerous if not handled properly, you could launch the bottle like a rocket.

    Re: 1955 17' Maghogany in Board

    It looks to me like that crack is on a seam. You'l need to remove the paint to see what is happening there. (At least for photo analysis) I think your boat is dried out and the planks shrank.

    Interesting that goes against all the safety training and videos that I used to present. However looking at the density of both CO and air you're absolutely correct.

    Re: Carbon Monoxide Detectors

    Mount the CO detectors low, below the level of the bunks, as CO is heavier then air. No point in the alarms going of after you started a permanent nap.
