This past weekend, we attended our first MTOA (Marine Trawler Owners Association) Northeast Rendezvous , held at the Mystic Seaport.
A number of helpful, informational seminars were provided. One on the proper way to use a fire extinguisher and put out a fire. A fire extinguisher was connected to a video screen that displayed flames of a fire. Just as in an actual situation, you only had sixteen seconds to put out the fire before the extinguisher ran out!! It was more difficult than you think!
