The owner of this boat woke one morning to find his small centre console alloy boat engulfed in flames. Despite the best efforts of the local fire brigade, by the time they arrived there was little they could do. The 3mm alloy sides melted away, the centre console became a blob of alloy and everything on the outboard that could burn, burnt.
What was thought to have started as a small wiring issue around the control box very quickly spread and the result was what you see. Needless to say it ruined the owner’s fishing weekend!
