Abstract
CO poisoning on houseboats continues to be a serious problem. In 2001, NIOSH conducted evaluations of an engineering control designed to redirect CO exhaust. This article discusses the results of these evaluations and compares the typical (rear-transom) generator exhaust configuration to the retrofit (dry-stack) generator exhaust configuration. The researchers suggest that a combination of engineering controls, boater education and surveillance is needed to evaluate and mitigate the hazards.
