I watched a boat
burn to the hull
today. When I first spotted her she was throwing a lot of smoke and clearly adrift. There were a couple of tugs standing off and I guessed the occupants had got off. A Canadian flag was flying so I'm guessing they were cruising. After a while the Coast Guard Aux. showed up and when it became obvious the boat
was drifting into the harbour they hooked up and began to tow. It really blazed up and there were a couple of explosions, propane
I'm guessing. They got it out to where it could burn out without causing trouble and got some water
on it but there wasn't much boat left. An awful thing to witness but I'm sure whomever was on got off.
