Wow . . . that's a fire.

I sure hope there was no foul play involved.

I wonder if it was a gas boat. Looks like it.

I made my living the same way you did in the eighties Bubb. Do you remember when there were a lot of captains who wouldn't hire on to a gas boat for any price? I was on a 31 Bertram once that almost caught fire from the Chrysler 440 marines. I was glad when we moved up to diesel the next boat.

Retcit, I don't like gas boats even today!!!! I have moved so many SeaRays, twin gassers. It may just be me. But when I step aboard one, I smell Gas!

Bubb—

Try Beano... it really helps with the Gas problem.

As for the boat... Looks like a fairly big powerboat... wonder if the fire was arson or not. Given the current economic climate, arson isn't too big a stretch.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Sounds reasonable to me. I'd be willing to lay a little on it.


Bubb,
It's not just you. I've smelled gas on every gas boat I've ever been on. Gas odors on sailboats with Atomics (great engines they are) are common. Our boat is outboard . . . not so bad. Our ski boat has a brand new 340hp PCM and even it gets the slight odor occasionally. I saw a Gas Bertram explode at the full dock in Port Aransas years ago. We were a few slips over and it scared the ever-lovin' S**T out of me. They flew those guy's to the Galveston Burn hospital.

Reminds me of the old one about: two older guys picking sand dollars on the beach in Florida bump into each other. One asks the other whats brings you to Florida. The first guy says I am from Jersey but I owned a garment factory in the heart of New York City. One night there was a fire and I took the insurance money and retired and here I am. The 2sd guy says my story is like that, I was a diary farmer in the Midwest and one night a tornado came along and killed all the cows and knocked the barns down and I took the insurance money and here I am.

The Jersey guy then says "HOW the hell did you start a tornado."
