New USCG Fire Extinguisher Requirements
There is a new federal regulation for fire extinguishers on motorized recreational boats taking effect on April 20, 2022.
The big change is that fire extinguishers older than 12 years from the manufacture date are no longer considered good and serviceable and should be replaced. This includes both disposable (non-rechargeable) and rechargeable fire extinguishers. Be sure they are properly pressurized, labeled for Marine use “Marine Type U.S.C.G.” and are of the specific type required for your vessel length.
