    Ditto. I throw my camera bag , lens bag and tripod behind the seat. There’s not a ton of useable space behind ours for anything else.

    Looks like Kiddie is having a recall, not sure if Bennington used them as an OEM item, but surely we've replaced quite a few over the years. I believe they are offering free replacements for the affected units.

    My boat is all covered up. Any confirmation that these were used on our boats?

    According to the recall there are some on PWC's
    "Push-button Pindicator fire extinguishers: The recall involves eight models of Kidde Pindicator fire extinguishers manufactured between August 11, 1995 and September 22, 2017. The no-gauge push-button extinguishers were sold in red and white, and with a red or black nozzle. These models were sold primarily for kitchen and personal watercraft applications.

    I have one, but not sure if my 2007 2275 GL is still equipped with the factory extinguisher or a replacement. I also have one at my home.

    40 million units being recalled is a really BIG number. That can't be too good for earnings.

    I just filed a claim for 2 of the 3 .All on line very easy .
    "Thank you for your submission. Your product is affected and as a result Kidde will be sending you a replacement unit. It should arrive within 15-20 business days. Please retain your existing fire extinguisher unit until your replacement has been received. Upon receipt of your new fire extinguisher you will find instructions on what to do with your affected fire extinguisher."

    I'll have to check my PWC. Thanks Jack.
