mounting a fire extinguisher

Yeah, I get it but aside from all the mounting jokes, can i mount a fire extinguisher horizontally in a boat or must it be vertical

Most can be mounted vertically.

As long as it’s not an ancient soda-acid extinguisher, horizontal is fine.

First Alert says you can mount a modern extinguisher horizontally. A racing forum I visited said it can depend on the type, so I imagine there’s some types that must point up. I would imagine that you’re fine, though. Just check the brochure to see if there’s any special requirements.

Hrm. Someone else found my link before I had a chance to finish my post. :frowning:
