  1. Fire extinguisher recall . .

    Fellow small boaters, alert. Maybe some of you already know this, but a Kidde fire extinguisher may be come useless when eurgently needed. Its plastic handle may break off when you try to activate it. And maybe some other flaws. If you have a Kidde extinguisher, note the year on its bottom and the printed S/Nr on its side and call 855-271-0773 during working hours and they will let you know if it is one that has been recalled. If it is, they will send you a new one and a pre-paid shipping label for return of the faulty one. They will properly dispose of the old one. Here's a photo of mine. There's more Info on this web page: https://www.cpsc.gov/Recalls/2017/kidde-recalls-fire-extinguishers-with-plastic-handles-due-to-failure-to-discharge-and John Zohlen of the Shallow Water Sailors alerted me to this recall.
