Re: Inspecting fire extinguishers

In the US, the local Power Squadron arm of the USCG will do a free 'safety check' which is for many reasons a good thing to do

When my boat was recently checked the inspector looked at the gauge and the date (stamped on bottom), which was all he did, bringing my attention to the date stamp. A couple of my extinguishers were near the 'empty' so I replaced. But that was all he did, just have a look at the gauge and the stamp
