Man I hate seeing fires like that, but the sad thing is, it will be some one doing something dumb. I know I've personally saw people at marinas doing thing that could cause damage not just to their boat but to other people's boats as well.

Fuel everywhere. I was at one here in town, once one boat went up, the heat generated would ignite the next one. The chemicals in the fiberglass and the wood boats were just more fuel for the fire to eat on. The ruptured fuel tanks, let the fuel loose, ( the diesel would burn, the gasoline would explode) causing it to float to the next boat. It was sort of surreal as you watched the fire burn on top of the water. The fire would ignite the next boat and the whole process would start again. Self fed would be the best way to describe it.

Great point Kev, I lost sight of that... Sometimes I forget to think things through. Looks like they were under cover and that' make it worse.

Good reasoning, and hell is the best description.

One way or the other, a bad day on the water.
