    :sad2:Over the weekend 4 people lost thier lives on a house boat down by Elsberry,Mo. They were tied up to an Island celebrating one of thems birthday .They were making a 2 day event out of it .The first day went by smoothly then that night it got chilly ,so thier thinking they lit the furnaceto knock off the chill. None of them woke up the next morning.
    Friends of thier went over to the boat the next morning to help them celebrate the BD and found them all dead.
    Didn't know them real well but had seen them all around down in that area. The girl who's birthday they were celebrating was turning 39. Keep the familys in your thoughts.and please folks check out the flues before lighting the furnaces .Don't need no more accidents like this..

    I guess maybe you don't think about it on a boat but, carbon monoxide detectors and batteries are cheap.
    No reason not to have them if you have a cabin or full covers. Reckon a fire alarm would not hurt either.
