wow. good reminder to check you bilge before starting. On my way to the ramp I normally open my bilge hatch to air everything out - makes me feel better. Guy was lucky someone was there to pull him out.

Charles Fraser (guy who developed seapines/harbor town) died when a boat exploded. If memory serves me right it was a gradywhite.

Taking a 4 trip to Tortuga and Marquesas in June, we will have 500+ gallons on board when we leave Shocked
