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.
