Boat fire in Oriental NC

Boat Fire At Sea Harbour | | Oriental NC News

A fire early this morning destroyed two boats at Sea Harbour Marina in Oriental. The boats lost were a Catalina 36 “Pressando” owned by Oriental residents Gordon and Anne Kellogg, and next to it, a Hunter sailboat, “Third Party” owned by Mike Spangler of Shelby.

Sing to a sailor's courage, Sing while the elbows bend,
A ruby port your harbor, Raise three sheets to the wind.

I am going to guess that this was caused by a faulty shore power connection.

That is an awesome reminder of the dangers of fire on board a yacht. If something like that happens at sea, you are literally toast if you don't immediately control the fire with a fire extinguisher.

"Firefighter Eric Kindle " - that's ironic.
