Ever wonder ...

How to stop a water leak
What a dismasting looks like
How to jury rig
How to deal with a broken thru hull

Yachting Monthly took a "mature" Jeanneau and dismasted it, punched holes in the hull, set it on fire, capsized it and finally blew it up.

This is must viewing for all

I still like propane. Once watched an alcohol stove flare; it was like a flame thrower.

Actually the one gt me thinking was the dry powder extinguisher. Not sure I like losing my visibility in that situation.

yawn.......

Been seeing those vids for some, for about a year now. Too bad they too a jeanneau, not another brand.....Altho in Europe, they are probably the MOST bought, moored brand in a given marina. Kinda like Catalina/Hunter is here in NA! last I checked heard, they built more boats per year than even the parent Beneteau. Not that that is good or bad.......kinda the Mcdonalds is #1, because they sell the most, so must be the best....says the owner of an 85 Jeanneau......

It is a good watch to see what is happening in any given situation frankly. Reality is, does not matter what brand the boat hull was or is.

Great video's, really brings the dangers to life.
I was thinking the same about the dry powder, would add to panic in an already stressful situation.
I believe Gas is as safe as any properly maintained and stored fuel. Turn off at the bottle when not in use and fit a gas alarm for peace of mind.
Safe sailing

Now that was worth the time to watch. Good post Jack.
I would bet you w/ most people if you were on their boat and asked them where there thru hull plugs were they wouldn't remember, if they had them at all.
My dad worked for Kenyon marine and used to have to investigate stove fires. Believe it on not it was usually white gas used in an alcohol stove.
I've personally experianced engine gas explosions and thru hull failures. The explosion blew the engine cover and the person that was standing on it out of the boat. In the excitement of the moment finding what you need is stressful. We practice what to do every year.
Just this past fall our alternator caught on fire. W/ smoke billowing out of the engine compartment I asked my wife to grab one of the fire extinguishers. She was panicking and couldn't find one. We have 5 and one was right in front of her.

One additional thing to plug thru hulls thing I keep on board also is couple of toilet bowl wax rings. You can ball it up and stuff it into any hold to plug it very quickly.
