If so, it will also mandate the carrying of a fire extinguisher.
Nope they are not the same in Canada, fuel tank can be built-in or not. It depends on the "powerplant" you have. If you have an inboard motor you have to carry a fire extinguisher. If you have only an outboard, you don't need a fire extinguisher.
If you also have a stove and/or a freezer and/or heater and/or AC in cabin you'll need a second fire extinguisher.
Also the size of the fire extinguisher will depend on the size of the boat.
