As if the raging fire weren't enough, within minutes the boat owner's ammunition started to explode, set off by the heat and flames.

A small electrical fire quickly spread to the rest of the boat as it burned up in the Marina on Saturday morning. The owner said that he turned the nob on the pergo switch of his dual battery system when the system overheated and caught fire. Fire crews had difficulty putting out the blaze at first, but eventually gained control of the fire by manually keeping the boat in between the docs. After the blaze the boat was hulled out of the water. The owner said there was no way to use his fire extinguisher because the fire started on the inside of the engine cover. More importantly, he was concerned about getting his wife out of the boat unharmed.

She's been called 'Britain's most abused boat'... dismasted, capsized, holed, set on fire... and now exploded. We knew this final test — a gas leak and LPG explosion — was the most dangerous and potentially costly in Yachting Monthly's ground-breaking 'Crash Test Boat' series of articles. Would the boat survive? How much destruction would be caused? Even with the help of the Royal Navy's explosives experts Lt Cdr Harry Palmer and gas safety experts, we couldn't predict the outcome. See the December issue of Yachting Monthly to read the full report.

This is a video of several ambitious (albeit misguided) boat owners who had their boat sink in 5 foot waves in West Grand Traverse Bay on August 30, 2009. They first thought that running 3 pumps in the cabin would allow the steel hulled house boat to somehow float. I think it is safe to say water was coming in as fast as it was going out. Since plan A didn't work they decided to get a tow truck to pull the boat into shallow water so it was above water. Not a good idea... see video part 2. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9tEbN89Pkxo
