    So sorry about this. Hard to watch that heartbreaking video. Glad no one was seriously injured. Could have been much worse.

    Did they use the old fuel lines on the repower? My money is on leaking fuel tank. Sad day indeed. My condolences. Glad no one was hurt.
    no old lines... new front to back

    Sorry about the boat loss and glad no one was hurt.
    A few years back on Catalina we were warned about these small wood boring beetles and that they would also bore through rubber. We were told they had bored through a few golf cart fuel lines.
    I went out on a friend's runabout with an I/O and after a few minutes smelled a really strong fuel smell. Sure enough, there was a perfect little bore hole from a beetle and an alarming amount of fuel spraying out. We shut everything down and got towed in and consider ourselves lucky.
    Now, I have a habit of checking for the beetle holes.

    Would love to hear a little more on this later as well.

    My guess would be fumes inside the engine compartment (leaky fuel line, gas tank leak, fuel filter,or something similar?), and right when someone turned the key to start...... boom!

    Pretty much nearly every year something like this happens with an I/O gas engine

    Every time I look at that picture I cringe. Incredible that nobody was hurt.

    from what he tells me... he pulled the boat off the trailer and pulled over to the dock and as he was getting ready to tie up to the dock and he heard a "pop" and felt the heat on the back of his legs and that was it... he said that it was not a very loud pop at all... and the engine hatch was slightly open and the 2 access hatches where open with fire coming out of the 3 places... he jumped off the boat onto the dock and that was it 187 fish's whole stern was on fire

    Wow, very scary. Glad no one was hurt, a buddy and I drove by the ramp just after, while the lot was packed with emergency crews, then I had the sad sight of seeing it towed down the strand.. Sorry for your loss.
