Default Automatic Fire Extinguishers

I was working in the bowels of my boat, and I noticed two fire extinguishers mounted next to the the gas tank.....one on each side. They were mounted at about 45 degree angle with the "head" lower than the flat bottom. I could see that there was some dried "something" crusted around the head.

I clicked it out of the holder and could tell it was empty. As far as I can tell these are the originals installed on the boat as the manufacture date is 1993. I need to replace these with something, but what?

Automatic dry powder type? I don't think I need Halon. These are made by a UK company called Firemaster and are 0.7kg in size.

Any ideas?

Those are Halons, i would replace them with the same. If its ever needed i would think Halon would do a better job and no clean up.

they're some real cool folks I would give them a call.. a friend works there and has told me to talk to them about upgrading my halon to something that makes no mess, possibly they can do the same for you

good luck
