(1) Nautical school ships less than 150 feet in length shall have at least two fire extinguishers on each passenger deck.
(2) Nautical school ships 150 feet and over in length shall be provided with at least one fire extinguisher for every 150 linear feet of corridor length or fraction thereof in the spaces occupied by passengers and crew.
(3) In all public spaces fire extinguishers shall be located not more than 150 feet apart.
