Hello, my name is***** will assist you.

Check in your local area for a company that does installed fire systems. They should be able to get a bottle for your system, as allot of the installed systems use Halon as the agent.

Garbage no answer answer. Want a refund unless specific company is recommended and works on SeaRay boats to remove and replace fire extinguisher.

By the way, why did it take 2 1/2 days to respond with no specific answer.
Expert:  Charles replied 1 year ago.

I am not in your area to suggest any particular service company. I know the system in your boat, I was a fire fighter in the Navy for 20yrs. I have serviced many installed systems in my time.

It took tow and a half days, as it is also peak season here. We get hundreds of questions a day and we do this on the side out of our homes.

you are totally no help whatsoever. I am unable to remove the Halonsystem because it's an automatic discharge system with a spinner to expel the halon automatically throughout the boat Engine compartment. My boat manufacture cannot recommend anybody to replace the Hanlon system that's why I have asked you to recommend somebody and if you can't do it I want my money back.

Have you tried to contact your local fire service companies. The only thing that is different about your system, is its location.
