    Does the fire extinguisher have to be mounted in the motor area or does it just have to be on the boat???

    it has to be on the boat out in the open for easy access,along with some kind of noise device(i.e. airhorn,whistle etc).

    Im not 100% on what is the law but I would put it somewhere close to the motor. You are more likely to have a fire there than anywhere else.

    if your motor starts fire you dont want your extinguisher anywhere close to it,....it may get too hot to handle:confused2:
