Gee, I thought the thick black clouds of smoke generated by burning fiberglass
and a hull
burnt to the waterline would suggest that fiberglass
burns. But perhaps I am mistaken.
And 'all steel boats have fires'? All of them? No exceptions? And 'all steel hull
(sic) rusts and sinks'? Again, all of them?
This is a fiberglass boat at a busy dock
with a fire department response in minutes, with proper equipment
to put out a fire. Just not one where the fire occurs in a boat where EVERYTHING is combustible. Get real.
But if you would like me to make you feel more 'secure in your choice', allow me to say that there is no difference in the way in which fiberglass supports combustion as opposed to steel. None whatsoever.
