Hazards from Portable Generators

Friday, May 24th, 2013

We don’t normally encounter portable generators on BTOSC events but you sail on a boat with one you would be advised to read the MAIB’s latest Safety Bulletin issued following the carbon monoxide poisoning on board the Bayliner 285 motor cruiser Arniston in Windermere, Cumbria on 1 April 2013, resulting in two fatalities.

The same hazard would also apply in the event of damage to the exhaust for any inboard engine.
