ALMOST LOST MY BOAT TO Fire

The dock space on the right is where my boat would have burned. A friend and sailor happened to be there and as soon as the powerboat began to burn jumped in my boat and motored away from the fire. As he pulled out of the dock the flames came out of the power boat. It was THAT CLOSE.
