Welcome aboard! I do vessel safety checks for the US Power Squadrons and I don't know who told you needed 2 fire extinguishers but you only need one. Go to Walmart and get a a kidde coast guard approved fire extinguisher B-1. They are around 20 bucks. Your boat is under 26 feet and that requires just one and not two. When you get this make sure you mount the fire extinguisher in the cockpit area !!!

Good luck

Roger

A simple google will find your info. Yes, it is different in the UK. Here's a link - Pleasure Craft Regulations | Regulations | Knowledge & Advice | Knowledge & Advice | RYA

You can correctly store the fire extinguisher in your boat if it’s in the required size. You don’t need a bulky one that may give you trouble.
According to the US Coast Guard, the correct quantity of fire extinguishers that you have to get is based on your boat’s size. Boats shorter than 26 feet don’t need a fire extinguisher at all. However, they won’t be released when used for the commercial purpose of carrying passengers and with the construction that can entrap flammable and explosive liquids or gases.

Fire extinguishers are not Maxum specific. Purchase the type and number required by the local authorities. By the size that will fit the boat (unless the legal requirement also specifies size, then go by that too.

The US Coast Guard has no authority in the UK....
