Carbon Monoxide and Boating

Carbon monoxide is found in the exhaust from cars and boats. One boat engine can produce the same amount of carbon monoxide as 180 cars. If you suspect carbon monoxide poisoning, move to fresh air and get medical help immediately! DO NOT ignore your symptoms. You could die within minutes if you do nothing.
