CO Detectors required in UK inland waters

"From 1 April 2019, sailors using some of the UK’s harbours and waterways will have to fit a carbon monoxide alarm on their boat.The new regulation follows a public consultation by the Boat Safety Scheme (BSS) and will affect those cruising the Scottish Canals, BWML marinas, Bristol Harbour, all Canal & River Trust waterways, The Broads, the rivers Medway, Thames, Blackwater, Chelmer, Cam, Dee, Wey, and other waterways run by BSS-regulated navigation authorities. It will apply to all classes of boat with accommodation."

I installed one when I installed heat. A boat just isn't ventilated like a house. (Chesapeake Bay).

Re: CO Detectors required in UK inland waters

We have three, one in each hull and one in galley. You can get a neat one that has a display showing the maximum CO reading.

Re: CO Detectors required in UK inland waters

Thanks for posting this.

I guess it's time for me to replace the old defunct one.

Does anyone have a few on using domestic ones, like these:

On board? The full monty marine ones require a 12v power supply, which is a pain (especially on a 24v boat ).

These Kidde ones are well reviewed, record peak levels, etc. But are they ok on a boat?
