manufacturer’s literature for additional information.
When the propulsion engine(s) or generator is running,
CO is produced and may remain in the vicinity of the
exhaust outlet (including underwater exhaust outlets
such as sterndrives and outboards):
Ventilation of Accommodation (Occupied)
Accommodation spaces need to be ventilated to intro-
duce fresh air into the spaces. Ventilation methods (e.g.
windows, hatches, doors, and blowers) used to accom-
plish this may, under certain conditions, bring hazard-
ous levels of CO into the occupied spaces. Care should
be taken to be aware of all prevailing conditions when
using these ventilating methods.
Do not occupy aft lounging area(s) or swim plat-
