RE: Fire Suppression

Is an automatic shut down necessary or required when the boat does not have powered engine room ventilation? If not necessary or required, is it desirable or advisable? We will be putting in fire suppression over winter haul out for next season and all the manufacturers' literature says auto shut down is required on diesel. No powered ventilation on our boat.
