Our Mission & Vision
Carbon monoxide, often called the silent killer, is emitted from boat engines. It is odorless, colorless, and tasteless and can be fatal when someone is exposed to large amounts of it. The exhaust fumes can travel to passengers INSIDE and OUTSIDE the boat. The highest concentrations are found near the back of the boat.
Our mission is to make boaters and marine manufacturers be constantly aware of the fatal risks of Carbon Monoxide and to implement safeguards to help eliminate Carbon Monoxide accidents.
Steps Toward Change
Carbon Monoxide Detectors
Consider purchasing a carbon monoxide detector for your boat to ensure the safety of everyone on your boat
Avoid traveling at slow speeds or idling. Always shut the engine off when not moving, especially while docked and while loading and unloading passengers.
