    Last year we bought a Nauticat 331 with a 88HP Yanmar Engine. It has obviously had 2 fire extinguishers in the engine space at sometime which are no longer present. Does anyone have advise on what type and size and how any we should fit?


    Standard advice for this be automatic (ie there is a heat sensitive firing device) and some sort of fire suppressant gas to avoid engine damage from powder.

    My engine bay on a 38 is quite big so you’d need fairly large cylinders.

    Hooe this helps.

    Thanks for that Julie
