More if you consider the 'near misses' where folks were not killed.
Off topic - CO poisoning at Lake Powell has been common. Especially with kids swimming between tubes on large anchored houseboats.

There are all sorts of vessels with gas powered bilge mounted gensets ala SeaRay etc. I've had a few. CO issues a normal factor to watch out for with gasoline engines. It shouldn't dominate the pros and cons of portable genset brand and use discussions.
