Marine Engine Safety
The USCG has required mechanical ventilation since July of 1980. However, many boaters don’t fully understand the importance of using blowers before starting a marine engine. Bilge blowers are the most effective way to remove explosive fumes from your engine compartment. Because gasoline vapors are heavier than air, lifting your engine hatch or cover won’t displace the combustible fumes setting in the bottom of the vessel. Stay safe on the water this year with the simple flip of a switch.
- Operate bilge blowers before every start!
- Replace noisy blowers. They can overheat and create another possible fire hazard.
- Check the condition of the hoses. A gaping hole or a disconnected hose will not properly ventilate the compartment.
- Operate blowers when operating below cruise speed
