Re: burnt boat for viewing

ah ha
not a sliver escapes you technically minded boat gurus...
A/C

the mate on the large twin diesel craft towing this floating charcoal shrugged his shoulders smiling at my repeated questions regarding said sailboat/location/A/C unit...
besides
he was busy trying to catch some river catfish for dinner! & seemed sad that there was little chance of snook in the area

an interesting note: the large twin diesel towing her led a train of three boats! towing two!
the floating charcoal in the middle, then a large trawler behind as the caboose, quite a salvage
if you are on the ICW in the next two weeks perhaps you can catch a view as they put up the West Coast then over to AL & TX

the older grumpier captain seemed to confirm the story of the sailboat fire(see above)
though I believe he mentioned Ft Lauderdale as the origin
the details are left blowing in the wind I suppose, & yes what a waste of materials on this incredibly fragile planet we all care for, some in bizarre misguided ways
