USCG Requirements - Fire Extinguishers

I cant figure out how many Fire Extinguishers we need. We are 125GT and 100Net. I only understand upto 65ft but we are more then 65ft.

USCG Requirements - Fire Extinguishers

I can't help with the regulations for a boat your size, but would recommend reaching out to your local Coast Guard Auxiliary and arrange a Vessel Examination.

This is a great courtesy service where a qualified vessel inspector comes to your boat and checks all the Coast Guard vessel requirements -- including fire extinguishers. There's no enforcement of penalties involved and you receive a Vessel Safety Check (VSC) sticker. Having one of these goes a long ways if you are boarded for a Coast Guard inspection.

Best of luck!

Here is a link to the CFR. Scroll down and youíll find the table.
I canít figure out how to cut and paste the table without messing it up but I think you need a minimum of 3 20-B portable fire extinguishers if your over 100 but less than 500 gross. Didnít see any reference to net.
