fire suppression

Hey Guys
In the wake of the Conception tragedy I am sure fire suppression is on everyone's mind. I came across this device. Seems like it could be a easy safety thing to add to high risk areas. Have not bought one yet but definitely considering it.

Re: fire suppression

Did the people trapped in the cabin have a fire extinguisher inside of the cabin with them?

Re: fire suppression

It’s a cool gimmick, but not as versatile as a typical fire extinguisher. They’ve been around for years.

The U.S. Coast Guard inspects boats annually and the Conception was "fully compliant" in its most recent inspection, according to Captain Rochester. The vessel was equipped with smoke detectors, along with fixed and portable firefighting systems, per federal regulations.

Not sure if they are required in cabin spaces.

Re: fire suppression

yes fire extinguishers are great but this works on its own. You mount them in high risk areas and if a fire breaks out they go off. From what I gather the crew was sleeping when the fire started and proceeded to get out of hand before they awoke. This mounted in the fire area would have automatically put the fire out for a $100. Just a thought

Re: fire suppression

Those look remarkable. Perfect for a cramped engine compartment or galley. Even a garage, put a few on the walls up high.

Re: fire suppression

someone said we don't know whether they had a fire extinguisher inside the cabin with them. My question is, had they had one in hand, would that have been enough to open an exit way through the fire at exit the cabin?

Re: fire suppression

interesting concept...haven't seen that one....a couple down in the enclosed engine compartment just might save the boat, as often, it is too late by the time smoke blows out of the sealed lids and raising the lid just adds more oxygen to the flames..any system that is self-activating could save lives or/and a sunken boat....anyone know of close by sources to purchase them?
