Up in Smoke

From today's 'Lectronic Latitude, comes word of a vessel fire at Palmira Marina, in La Paz, B.C. :

Boat Fire at Palmira Marina

November 2, 2007 – La Paz, Mexico

Robin Aitken Hardy of the San Pedro-based trawler The Cat's Meow sent us this report of a boat fire in Marina Palmira on October 20:

"The 80+-ft Mexico-flagged yacht Mi Barú was tied up to the end tie of Dock Two when a fire broke out around 9 a.m. Regular fire extinguishers were ineffective so the boat was pushed to a small dock on the breakwater, right behind the sailboat Sunbreak - with a woman, her two children, a dog, a cat and a turtle aboard. A young Mexican man in a dinghy took a man from the burning Mi Barú, then helped Marina Palmira workers tow Sunbreak - whose engine isn't working - to another dock.

Left with a disabled engine, the crew of Sunbreak had help moving the boat out of harm's way.
