    Once again, a boat fire/explosion revolving around gasoline. I need not be a cheerleader for Diesel here and now -- as reality speaks for itself.

      Obviously this boat isnt supposed to float. Shame on the owners! Too proud of their technologies, ignoring the overwhelming powers of the dark arts.

        Nearby gas cans? On the boat? That is odd.

          It seems clear that these morons could blow themselves up with anything.

          If you're not stupid, your gas boat is perfectly safe. And if you are stupid, you wouldn't be smart enough to get diesels. So it's a catch-22.

            Just down the road from us. The owner lives in Seattle and hired 5 guys to help him lift the boat. As said, he plugged in a pump and a spark ignited gas fumes. There was no mention that gas cans were on the boat or in the boat house. Sounds like it was not on purpose...

            The boat was a 39 ft Elco.

              Gas cans are mentioned in the linked story.

                Possibly gas cans brought to run the pump?, that possibly was just fueled from said cans?, and some spilled?

                Just guessing, fumes could also have been from the gas floating in the area if this was a gas boat.

                All in all, hardly a testimony to the dangers of running a gas powered boat.
