burnt boat for viewing

this pulled up at the marina today in Florida
yes, towed in should I say

I thought you lads would enjoy the image

the sordid tale involves the fact that it parked next to a sailboat last month which had a malfunctioning AC unit

it is off to Texas to be floated into a fresh water lake for two years where she'll undergo massive repairs

enjoy

Re: burnt boat for viewing

I would imagine that boat has a date with a chain saw.

Why bother, it's a stinkpot!

More details about the cause of the fire in the sailboat would be helpful.

Yeah as long as no one was hurt who gives a rats behind about the stink pot? They belch mother earth killing carbon laced gases. We want to know about the environmentally friendly sailboat.

I'd like to know how an AC unit is involved with causing this fire.

Are you saying that it was trashed by a sailboat?

Revenge is sweet.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

+1 I've seen hundreds of HVAC failures, from small window units to 2000 ton chillers, and none of them caused a fire.

Now, a malfunctioning electrical system component, that's another story, and a much more likely culprit.

Additional note: For clarity, AC typically means Alternating Current, and A/C = Air Conditioning.

True that!
I should have written "A/C unit" as AC = alternating current. How did that convention get started?

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

Caleb, I would guess that the convention got started because Alternating Current was in use for years before the advent of Air Conditioning.
