Read the Safety Warnings

Found this warning at a car list I'm on, it's originally from a motorcycle site:

Brake Cleaner = Phosgene Article

looks like trouble cruisers could get into too.

I generally leave the brake work on the boat to professionals. But seriously, it is a big mistake to use any chemicals and especially aerosol sprays in the cofined spaces of a boat without adequate ventilation, and that should include exhaust fans, etc. WG
