    Fire extinguisher location

    Anybody move their extinguisher to another location? Been thinking of moving it in storage under top bin. Top bin needs more room. I'll have to make a bracket,but it'll a least make more room in bin. Also added a drawer handle to rear of bin, makes it much easier to take out.

    its probably put there for a reason. Personally if my ski was on fire or i had to extinguish a fire it would need to be done fast. Lifting that first storage bin out would take a lil bit of time especially if its packed full of stuff. Thats mah 2cents tho

    Moving it to the top bin of any PWC makes more sense. Just like you guys are mentioning.

    Are you really going to dig for a fire extingisher if your ski was on fire???

    They are required so IF you are around another boat or ski that is on fire, you can get yours out,IF one my ski's was on fire I am getting the hell away from it and hope someone has theirs........................

    Technically the reason for extinguisher's are U.S.C.G. rules ,but location in particular isn't mandated. I agree that their a good idea. But how fast is FAST? If your ski is on fire it will be mainly engine (fuel) or electrical and by the time you notice it will be well established ,same with another vessel. A couple of seconds aren't going to make much difference. I know their will be those who disagree ,but I still think there's a better place for it while not impacting safety or it's usefulness. My 2 1/2 cents.

    Thats the point I was making, it isnt for putting out your own Ski, its to be prepared if some one elses ski is on fire.....Again if you Ski catches fire are you going to stay on it and try to get to the fire extinguisher.I know I am not..............

    God forbid any of my skis ever catch on fire, but if they do im bailing off. Im not gonna burn myself or blow myself up over my ski. That is what insurance is for. The best is were the fire extinguisher to the sxr is located. I might stick my face into a burning ski.
