  • My recent "Safety Inspection"

    Okay, Bob_VT has gone to a fiberglass boat (which is a shocker) and launched it on it's maiden voyage this past weekend. The State Police pulled me over for a Safety Inspection" and I got s surprise-

    My Kidde Fire Extinguisher might have been a subject of a recall. Passed the inspection and contacted Kidde to check the extinguisher -Yes it has been recalled.

    PLEASE Check your Kidde extinguisher and if it has been recalled Kidde will send you a new one and a label to send the old one back. There are youtube videos and website instructions to check. The lifespan on the small extinguishers is normally 12 years and mine was 6 years old so it was a win-win situation.

    Be Safe and enjoy!

    The State Police did a boat inspection? Never heard of that. Or was the fire extinguisher in your truck?

      Vermont is one of several states where the state police marine division are responsible for boating law enforcement.
      The last suit you wear won't need any pockets. You might as well spend it on a boat.

        In Illinois/Iowa we have sheriffs department, dnr and state police on patrol. And on the Mississippi River it’s both states. Oh and the coast guard auxiliary.

          If I was on the water and saw you in a glass boat and had the authority to stop you, I would too, Bob.

          There is thread here with a link to all the codes of the recalled Kidde extinguishers - https://forums.iboats.com/forum/gene...ndicator-types

          And the actual link - https://inmarmarketaction.com/kidde/Kidde284US/

          This is a good bump and reminder to check these Kiddes. Thanks.

            Here in Ontario our Provincial Police O.P.P. (Staties south) do marine inspections. I was inspected no less than 3 times a few years ago. One duffus almost swamped us running his centre council with twin 300's. You would have thought he was coming alongside Pablo Escobar himself, idiot. And I voiced my displeasure because I was 110% compliant and always am, usually. His partner apologized, he didn't. Come to find out one day buddy had Vodka Tonic in his water bottles.
            Experience is a lifetime of mistakes, wisdom is not making them again.

              Just to be clear, the Coast Guard Auxiliary has no law enforcement power.
