How awful!

When the original boat caught fire, they released it? I guess it keeps the fuel dock from catching fire. I know hindsight is 20/20. What's the best thing to do in that situation?

If no lives are in jeopardy or imminent danger....get away and let it go. Let the fire department handle it. Whatever happens can be cleaned up and boats replaced. Don't try to be a hero for no good reason.

That is, of course, after it has gone out of control....when it first starts and is small, try to use the fire extinguisher or other means to fight it and get it out.

Re: Marina Fire Lake Ray Hubbard

So far I haven't been able to find out any more than what they say in the video...except that the sailboat that was destroyed was a Benneteau 30. I don't know the owner but one of my sailing friends does and he told me the boat what an older model that was better than new. there was another sailboat badly scorched at the stern. The power boat that started it all was also destroyed and sunk.
