Default Boat Fire at Akwa Vista

Just saw this post this morning. About 4 slips from my boat. Calling the marina this morning for a status on my boat.

Post Having Put Out Two Fires, Myself...

Overheard in the short video, "...He tried with his little extinguisher...".

Fire extinguishers should be aimed at the base of the flames. (Fuel-fed fires, especially).

Spoke to Akwa Marina. No issues with my boat but I will do a complete inspection especially looking for damage to the canvas. They are not sure of the cause but likely a spark from the automatic bilge switch in the engine compartment combine with gasoline fumes

Picture from FD Facebook. Article on WMUR News said boat has not been used in days. Great job by the First Responders. Glad everyone is OK.

Default Hmmm

Once I saw the two eighty it got me thinking...I've seen a boat that looks similar for sale! Note - I do not think it's the same boat, but if it is it is one hot boat!

Note - after further investigation, definitely not the same as the graphics are bit different Needless to say I hope the owner had a good insurance policy! Must've been an electrical issue given it was at the dock...?

How does a boat burn like that and not explode? Is the fuel tank in that boat still intact, with fuel in it, I wonder? I wouldn't think there would be much left of that boat if it exploded, not to mention the ones next to it... Amazing there was no "domino" effect.
