Re: CO alarm on boats ?
We have a CO detector and it's on whenever the panel is powered up.
Biggest concern is we use a Espar cabin heater, and sometimes when it's cold we run it all night. If it failed, and gases from the combustion side made it to the hot air side, or wind direction somehow conspired to let the exhaust from the stern get into the boat through a dorade, port, or hatch cracked open.
Seems I read about an incident almost every year someplace in New England especially early or late season when its cold out.
