Boat Fire at Chichester Marina

This is the remains of a Fairline Targa which was well ablaze at Chichester Marina Today on Saturday, when Chris and I went out for a Blast.

It was a cold, wet day and we were able to keep warm and dry in my HARD BOAT

Bit of gelcoat filler and she'll be as good as new.

when we left to go out i could smell something like a bonfire and could see a little smoke in the air, but we thought nothing of it, while we were gone all hell let loose, it was quite bad and a good job it was not a petrol version!! took them a couple of hours or so to put it out

i suspect some of the other boats have damage around it where the molten fibreglass and other stuff drifted onto the boats next to it

everyone was safe so that is the main thing
