I am told I also need a type B2. Is this correct? </p> <p> <em><strong>Answer:</strong> It's almost correct, this is what the rules state for your size boat:</em> </p> <p> <em>Minimum number of extinguishers required:</em> </p> <p> <em>Boat Length - No Fixed System - With Fixed System</em> </p> <p> <em>26' to less than 40' - two B-1 or one B-2 - one B-1</em> </p> <p> <em>So two B-1 extinguishers or one B2 would be acceptable unless you have a fixed system which you did not mention.</em> </p><div class="item_footer"><p><small><a href="http://blogs-it.cgaux.org/vqa.php/2012/08/13/fire-extinguishers-on-34-foot-boat">Original post</a> blogged on <a href="http://b2evolution.net/">b2evolution</a>.</small></p></div> http://blogs-it.cgaux.org/vqa.php/2012/08/13/fire-extinguishers-on-34-foot-boat
