Protecting the crew from carbon monoxide poisoning
Carbon Monoxide is a by-product of petrol and diesel combustion engines. It is a colourless, odourless, and tasteless gas that, in high concentrations, can be fatal. The danger from carbon monoxide is when it collects aboard. That may happen because an exhaust leaks or an exhaust back-drafts due to a wind shift or from mooring too close to objects that obstructs the exhaust port venting.
