Course Outline

All vessels with a motor of any type are required to have a Type B fire extinguisher on board. The only exception is a vessel that is of open construction, is less than 26 feet in length, has an outboard engine, is not carrying passengers for hire, and is not on federally controlled waters.

Approved types of fire extinguishers are identified by the following marking on the label—“Marine Type USCG Approved”—followed by the type and size symbols and the approval number.
