I'm looking for recommendations for fire extinguishers and locations on a 2014 SD 2690.

    Regarding the fire extinguisher itself, here's the Coast Guard requirement:

    The Coast Guard requires boats to have at least one B-1 marine fire extinguisher on board.
    Vessel Length     No Fixed System      With approved Fixed Systems
    Less than 26'            1 B-1                         0
    26' to less than 40'      2 B-1 or 1 B-II                      1 B-1
    40' to 65'3 B-1 or 1 B-II and 1 B-1               2 B-1 or 1 B-II

    They can be purchased at any of the local or online marine suppliers (West Marine, iBoats, Defender, Overton's etc.) .  Kidde is a well known, long time usually reliable brand.

    Thanks.  I ended up mounting one behind the helm seat, on the side of the wall around the corner from the door under the grill.  The other I mounted in the head, in the space between door and the sink vanity.
