Exactly. I would have never thought CO poisoning was possible in a boat cabin.

It looked like a salon bridge style boat. With twin engines and a generator, there can be a lot of CO generated. Further, depending on the layout, the engines might be under the cabin floor, making CO intrusion very possible.

Exclamation Diesel NOT Immune to CO Production...

Today's fluky winds could have whirled exhaust fumes into the cabin.

Frequently, CO affects those who "Teak-Surf". (Illegal elsewhere).

I am well aware of the CO issues at the swim platform area but really never gave the cabin a thought.

Default CO on boats

Hopefully all will recover without residual effects. A Cain Cruiser type of watercraft has typically under the salon sole the engines and in addition there are other items there also, generator, waste containers, onboard water and this is connected to the bilge. Most likely in the bilge below the forward bunks is found the bilge pump/s. Therefor co can readily permeate the living areas.

Default Concern with camper top canvas

Ever since I got the camper top canvas for my Mariah Bowrider, I have had a concern about CO with the top zipped up tight. As such I do not zip it up totally if we are going out with all the canvas up. I always keep some of the corners unzipped a little.
Call me paranoid, but with the canvas zipped up tight, it can get stuffy really quick.

If you're concerned why not get a battery powered Carbon Monoxide Alarm?
Don't need to install it,just leave it in the cabin....they work great.I have one in my foyer next to the garage and they go off before levels get dangerous.

I bought a CO alarm 34 years ago.

"First Alert" instructions said when the alarm sounds "low-battery", be sure to buy a replacement "First Alert" cartridge—at $45.

Even though the alarm was only a day old, I cut apart the existing "First Alert" plastic cartridge. Inside was a standard 9-volt Ray-O-Vac battery!

New recommendations on both CO detectors and smoke alarms--they need to be replaced every 10 years to assure performance. We're having ours done now

Default Cabin Cruisers

Always thought they came with CO detectors. At least mine does.
Instructions that came with CO detectors tells you that they should be replaced every ten years.

We rarely use the camper top on our bowrider, just when I do use it, I make sure I have good air flow in the cockpit area. I have seem to many articles about CO problems around boats. If I had a cuddy cabin, I certainly would do as you suggest. Good advice.

My old boat didn't have a CO detector, so i tried one of the home detectors that has a meter on it to show the amount of CO at any moment.

I was surprised to find that even a boat passing at no wake speed within 6 or 10 feet of my boat would cause the CO count to increase on that meter!!

It sure was an eye opener!

If you're concerned about CO, get a battery powered CO detector and put in in the cockpit of your boat, then you will at least get a warning when the canvas is closed.

Slightly off-topic but a few years ago I bought a Netatmo weather station for my home. Among other things it measures and graphs the CO2 levels in my bedroom and home office. When no one is in the bedroom the CO2 reading is about 300-400. When my wife and I are sleeping in there with all the windows and door shut it climbs to 1000-1200. My home office is in a small wing added to the house and is very tightly sealed. When I'm working in there with the windows closed the CO2 soars to 2000 or more. If I open the window the level starts dropping.

It was quite an eye-opener that CO2 levels climbed so high in sealed rooms without ventilation. In years past I've slept in my office and wonder how I didn't pass out after breathing such high CO2 levels all night.

The Netatmo demonstrated how levels of harmful gases can easily soar when sealed in.

CO carbon monoxide, not to be confused (or interchanged) with CO2, carbon dioxide.

I didn't confuse them. My Netatmo measures carbon dioxide while the topic of this thread is carbon monoxide poisoning. My point was that gases can rise to very high levels in closed areas without us realizing it.
