Carbon Monoxide and Boating

Death from carbon monoxide exposure on boats typically occurs at the rear of the boat near the motor or individuals towed immediately behind the boat.

Kare 11 news offered a July 12, 2013 report on a 4 year old Maple Grove Minnesota girl who suffered excessive carbon monoxide exposure from riding behind and at the back end of a boat.
These reports have a personal resonance with me as I nearly died from carbon monoxide exposure while riding in back of our family car while we pulled our camper trailer.
