    2 Bayliner Motor Yachts Down in Flames (literally)-gctid341776

    Early in the morning of New Year's Eve (12/31/2011), there was a fire at the Port of Edmonds, WA. Apparently, a little before 4:00 a.m. a 48 foot Bayliner caught fire. The fire spread to the 51 foot Bayliner in the slip next to it. The fire was noticed by one of the night crew, and the Fire Department quickly arrived, but not in time to save the boats. The first boat sank after burning down to the waterline. After the fires were put out, both boats were hauled out. I took the pictures yesterday.Fortunately, the slip next to the second boat was temporarily vacated, as the owner had his boat in the Public Moorage area decorated for the annual "Holiday of Lights" put on by the Edmonds Yacht Club. Had it been in its usual slip, the fire would most likely have progressed all of the way down the dock. Bad accident, and it could have been a lot worse.Rob

      One was the "Great Escape" a 4788, and the other I'm not too sure about.

        I think you are referring to the lengths as stated in the article. But I have learned the hard way that there are more then a 'few' key measurements when it comes to boats like these.....

        47' 4" - length of molded hull (4788)

        51' to 52' - length they charge you for your slip (and likely what the article picked up on)

        60'to 80' - length when you are waxing hull or sanding for bottom paint

        100'- 150' - length you believe they use when estimating work

        5' (standard bathtub) - length when you are in very heavy weather

        Hope this helps

            Gee that looks nasty. Looks like fire started in the main electrical switch panel area. I have found a few plugs that have got hot in that area I am sure it pays to have a good look around in that area as a part of routine maintanence.

            I wonder what happens to the engines and other salvagable parts from a wreck like that ?? I am sure there would be some very handy bits in there.

            Happy New Year

              The first pic is an early 4788; teak wood on salon window wall. Can't tell what boat in the second pic other than a hard chime so may be a 52. Also check out the 4 thru holes in the second pic, Could this help ID the hull?

                The two boats involved were the "Sea For Two" (45' M/Y) and the "Great S' cape" (47' M/Y). Ted took some great pics. His boat "Jaruba" was directly across from the fire. Luckily he got away with a melted burgee. How much colser to a disaster can ya get huh?

                  Was down at the Edmonds Marina this evening and noticed this sign on one of the boats:

                    Insurance company will auction it off, some used car dealer in Oregon will buy it for $7,000, then he will spam every craigslist ad forever trying to sell it for $96,000.
