Can You smell burning?

Hi,

For anyone who's interested, this is what's left of the 80 foot motor yacht that caught fire in East Cowes recntly.

It's now on the barge in Camber Dock Old Portsmouth awaiting inspection by the insurers.

I'm no expert, but I'm not sure that will polish out??

I'm sure bits of it would polish up quite nicely, trouble is the other bits.

Landfill I expect

No need to bother selling her now, or paying brokers fees

Such a shame, we always admired her each time we visited East Cowes

Fire appeared to start in the wheelhouse with no-one aboard.

Having worked on many superyachts in build I can tell you the fire extinguishing systems onboard are pretty useless.

Most will sacrifice the boat rather than trying to fight a fire.

The only system I'd have any faith in onboard is a good compartment misting system or engine room halon drench. This is what we used on the nuclear submarines I worked on anyway.

New boats can't have halon fitted to them anymore though. But a lot of the older ones still have it fitted.
