I can't answer your question but why not buy a Kidde 7DCO online and then you have always got one. You can get them for about £16 if you shop about.
You can then holiday on a boat, a caravan, cottage and you have your own digital peace of mind.

Hi Robert,

I am as sure as I can be that you will not have an alarm provided with the boat. You can find the one that Chris has suggested Here

Kind Regards
Alan...

A timely reminder from a recently received RYA e-newsletter ....

http://www.rya.org.uk/newsevents/e-newsletters/inbrief/Pages/think-youre-safe-from-the-silent-killer.aspx?utm_campaign=In+Brief+January+2017+-+Non+Member&utm_source=emailCampaign&utm_content=&utm_medium=email

Sound advice, and within that, it was always drummed into me there's no such thing as a false alarm. If an alarm is activated, it's been triggered by something - and that something requires investigation.

Just be aware, you might hire a boat with no fuel burning appliances on board, no diesel heating or gas. You might think that you are safe, but moor next to another boat, say on a stern on mooring, and the fumes from the adjacent boat heater or engine exhaust could make it's way into your boat, via a poorly sealed window, a hull vent, or under a loose fitting canopy, made worse on a windless night.

Sleep well !  You might not wake up.

I still don't understand why CO monitors are not a requirement of the Boat Safety certificate, I have emailed them, and had no satisfactory reply.

I still don't understand why hire companies don't fit them as standard.
Not a legal requirement, but surely the hire companies " have a duty of care" for their customers.

Maybe we should start a campaign, before you make a hire booking, just before you give the credit card details,    "Oh does the boat have at least one CO alarm?"  NOOOO... oh dear, please cancel the booking, I don't want this to be my LAST holiday.

Hang on sir/madam,  for £20 we can fit one, if we do, will you continue with the booking?  

Sorted...  

Your life, and you only have one, is in their hands.

Not a bad idea to take your own CO alarm.
Take a smoke alarm too.
If there is gas on board, take a gas alarm as well.

I think I'll stay at home.


I wonder who will be the first hire company to feature CO alarms in their brochures and websites.

I'm not holding my breath...


best regards, Richard.

In my opinion, being on a boat is one of the most relaxing place to be.

We had our Boat safety done this week all was fine. We were handed a booklet on CO'2 on boats from the examiner which is now on the boat. We have an alarm fitted.

From April 2017 a new bss requirement for hire boats with overnight accommodation will be smoke alarms will need to be fitted. CO alarms will be required on boats with wood burning stoves which will be mainly narrow boats.

Hi everyone ..... I have recently booked a boat with Faircraft Lyones for a holiday this year. Due to the tragic news about CO poisoning deaths on boats that were in the news at that time I asked Norfolk Broads Direct if their boats were fitted with CO monitors.

Their reply was that it wasn't necessary due to the boats engine/equipment having annual safety checks.

I found this quite disconcerting and for peace of mind, and after speaking to my local fire department, I bought three. One for each of the cabins.

You may be thinking this is a bit over the top but as the fire officer said closed cabin doors at night can be a real risk and potentially lethal if carbon monoxide is present.

As Rustic said above it may not be your boat at fault it could be one moored nearby. Better to be safe than sorry.

I speak from personal experience as my sister and her boyfriend died this way in a house.
