Bonfire of the Boathouse

"I came up Saturday to my sailboat that I keep at Blaine Harbor Marina. My mission was to dive on my, and Jim's boat to replace the zincs and check them out. Not a fun job and one that I've put off for better weather....Surfacing, I found two other boat owners talking to Jim and asking if I could check out their nearby boats. Oh well, make a friend. ...

...Hauling myself out of the water, I was cold and tired (after working on 5 boats!). After motoring back to my boat, and cleaning up my gear, my new friend Bob invited us back over to his trawler for a drink. Jim doesn't drink, but Bob and I tucked into a fifth of Jack Daniels and left it half empty in a couple of hours, swapping racing and boating "stories"...

...After we went out to dinner, I retired to my boat and was reading at around 11 pm when a 37' boat in the boathouse across from me blew up and caught fire...."
