This product looks interesting for the engine room: FKO Fire Knock Out
Any experiences or knowledge about it, here?

Watch great footage about the story of one man’s slow odyssey around the UK:

Ooh, a fire blanket. Never thought of that. I've got extinguishers in each cabin, one at the nav station (close to the galley and engine fire port), one mounted in a cockpit locker, and one loose in the other cockpit locker (forget I had it when I mounted the other ones).

But now I need a fire blanket (I LOVE buying boat stuff).

The new Hunters come with an automatic suppression system in the engine compartment. I wish I had one of those. Maybe I'll price that out next year...

Our engine space fire supression system is Automatic FE-241 Fire Extinguishing System coupled with Automatic Engine Shutdown System.

FWIW...

But: If you place one in a cabinet out of sight. You will need to put a sign, red in color and highly reflective, so that the first time guests will know where it is at. And yes you can acquire those signs for a low price.

One other minor detail; That cabinet can not have a lock on it... Or be able to be locked up in any manner.

I have 4

One in a cockpit locker, bracketed to the lid

One in the companion way next to the galley/engine

One in the aft statesroom

One in the V-berth

I replaced them all with brand new ones when I bought the boat.

HyLyte,

Thanks for the tip on where to order a Fire Blanket. I ordered three, one of the boat, one of home and one for my daughter.

Just remember, if you have dry chem fire extinguishers, you'll want to shake them thoroughly once a month... to prevent the powder from caking and becoming useless.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
