Carbon monoxide poisoning - blocked exhaust outlets

Blocked Exhaust Outlets can occur when you are docked beside a seawall or pier. This can cause carbon monoxide to accumulate in the cabin and cockpit area.

Carbon monoxide poisoning - another boat's exhaust

Another Boat’s Exhaust that is alongside can emit carbon monoxide into the cabin and cockpit of your pleasure craft. Your pleasure craft should be at least 6 metres (19.7 feet) from a boat that is running a generator or engine.
