  • Sumo

In Florida, there is great joy and pleasure in owning a boat or just taking a ride on a friend’s boat. There are, however, many dangers to boating. One of which is the danger of carbon monoxide poisoning. Generators on boats power the electrical system and the air conditioning. It is vital that a generator is properly installed and that it is checked to make sure that carbon monoxide exhausts do not pose a threat to occupants of the boat. Tragically, there have been many reported incidents of people suffering personal injuries and even death as a result of carbon monoxide poisoning while occupying a boat. Get a professional to check the equipment including the generator. Safety precautions can and do save lives. People spend thousands upon thousands of dollars on boats. It makes sense to spend a little bit more money for safety and peace of mind. This is especially true when children occupy the boat.
