Boat Fire

Was sat in the pub last night when a boat on the quayside went up, every one got off ok and luckily the ferry was passing which dampened the flames but couldn't put it out, it did supress the fire though. The ferry was dousing it for about 4 mins, the fire brigade turned up sprayed foam on it and it was out in about 5 secs, amazing to watch!

Do you know what kind of boat it was? Fairline or something?

Nah, was slightly drunk at the time and the boat was quite a way off. It was about 20' speedboat might have been a bowrider?
