    I doubt it, not big enough. Mine are little larger than an aerosol.

    My only effort to kill off a fire was when an aircraft caught in our hanger. Rushed out with CO2 and we managed to control it. Just.. Volume was not a problem as the hanger was big. But it had 22 other aircraft in it and the one that was burning had full tanks. A few 'very interesting minutes'
    I have been reading, for a while, that those camping stoves are not supposed to be used on boats. If that is so, why are they OK in tents?

    Tents "flash over" in about five seconds; at times inflicting horrendous burns. Boats take much longer to burn and running/walking away is difficult on water.
    Cynical Scots engineer.
