By the time the contents of your boat are burning hot enuf to ignite an aluminum flybridge, you are well into 'total writeoff' territory. The real lesson here has zippo to do with fiberglass, or steel, or aluminum. It's that any sort of fire on board any boat is desperately serious business. You can build the shell out of asbestos-lined concrete; if a dead short in an unfused wire ignites some floatation foam, which in turn sets off 300 gallons of diesel fuel, that's a floating hibachi -- and the choice of hull or deck materials becomes kinda irrelevant. The burned-out concrete/asbestos boat is simply a bigger disposal problem.;)
