owner of a cabin cruiser on Lake Powell in Utah and an occasional renter of houseboats I have recently learned how easily I or one of my passen gers could become a victim of carbon monoxide CO poisoning The level of CO found beneath some houseboats is so high it can kill a person after only a few breaths Swim ladder designs on some houseboat models create an air cavity beneath the stern deck This space is a popular place for kids to go swimming Many boats also vent the gasoline generator exhaust into this space which has rib outlet al lowing lethal levels of carbon monoxide to build up within a few minutes Sadly since 1994 nine people have died and since 1991 more than 100 have required emergency care all from CO poisoning at Lake Powell Abby please warn readers about the dangers of houseboats House boats are being recalled and re fitted Houseboat owners should contact their nearest Coast Guard station for more information BOAT OWNERIN FLAGSTAFF ARIZ DEAR BOAT OWNER Your warning will be news to a lot of Abigail VanBuren Dear Abby people it was to me and I hope it serves to alert individuals and families who va cation on or around rented houseboats The problem seems to be a de sign flaw in cer tain models of houseboats that allows carbon monoxide to col lect beneath swim platforms or in the vicinity of the swim ladder near the back of the boat Carbon monoxide is a colorless odorless tasteless gas Exposure to it causes headaches dizziness fa tigue confusion and nausea The symptoms can mimic those of sea sickness When breathed in high concentrations or for prolonged pe riods it can cause convulsions seizures and death It is also the No 1 cause of poisoning deaths in the United States Thats why proper ventilation when burning carbon fuel is a must DjEAR ABBY I am a 12yearold about to turn dont remember all the details of a letter in your colunrif that touched me but I do know what it was about sniffing inhalants When I read that letter I knew it had to be God speaking to me I was experimenting with inhalants and having problems such as de pression and suicidal thoughts that were beginning to take over my life I looked at suicide as a way out I had it all planned but my cousin talked to me sensed something was wrong and I confided in her I didnt think shed squeal but she did At first I was mad that shed wrecked my plan Fortunately I was put into Teen Recovery to work out some of my problems After five days I was out and on to a new and better life thanks to the worlds best parents cousins grandparents and friends that a person could ever have I hope my letter today will en courage some other troubled boy or girl out there to reach out if theyre in trouble Just sign me PRE TEEN WITH NEW HOPE DEAR PjRETEEN too hope your letter reassures other kids who are in trouble that they can get the help they need Caring family and friends are the best support system in the world 9 Abby Is written by Pauline PMIIips and daughter Jeanne Phillips
