Fuel leaks and Boat Fires

Got a fishing boat you've worked on or are still working on... Bought a new fishing boat and want to share your pride and joy with others? (or just brag!)

Fuel leaks and Boat Fires

Fuel Leaks - Boat Fires

I took these pics at the marina where my boat is stored.

I believe that the incidents were related.

The trailer boat has no damage to the trailer so I'm guessing that it was in the water near the other boat and was subsequently removed and parked on the trailer.

The sound of the fire engines awoke me and I had to go over to the marina to check if my boat was ok.

This occurred only a few hundred yards away from where my boat was being stored.
