Wow. You are a dick. I was down there on my morning run when it happened. It was a small boat with an I/O. The engine died, the operator opened the engine hatch and, (as he did this) it exploded. It was amazing how loud the explosion was. I am glad (and pleasantly surprised) that they were not more seriously hurt or killed.

Glad to see nobody got killed.

I was fishing the breakwall and heard a large thud and then heard "Mayday" from a nearby boat. It happened so fast that I don't think the people in the boat new what happened. They are lucky to be alive.

Well at least you called me bro. :rofl:
When did you become so sensitive Stan?
Why must you be so personal when I just generalized, as another categorized.

It . . . . . was . . . . . a . . . . . joke!

LAUGH! It's good for your soul!

Sooo.... The old question, "why do you have to turn the exhaust blower on before starting the motor". Answer, "BOOOOOOMMMMM". A one in a million incident.
Or possibly, Mr. Joe Boater, cigarett in mouth with whole family and dog on board had to go pop the hatch and see why motor would not start.
Just a couple of simple explanations.

I also hope that all involved recover completely.

The events described here fit in with a fuel/air environment having insufficient oxygen to combust, with introduction of air at hatch opening to enable combustion. Fuel/air mixtures can be INCREDIBLY destructive when they initiate and combust.

I wasn't in the area, but was monitoring ch16 in Oceanside while fishing. Both me and my wife could not believe what we heard.... And just the night before she was asking why I always insist on proper engine starting procedures. Didn't had explain after she heard the Mayday call on the radio.

If remember correctly, i did hear one of the rescue crew mentioned fuel leak was involved.

I heard and felt it all the way out at the double oil rigs about 9 miles out.

We were 100 yards in front. of it in our boat when it blew, so you can just imagine what we felt & heard. The only good thing was how much help was close by for those unfortunate people.

Another reason why, throughout the day, I lift the cover many times and scan for leaks and such. 1st start in teh morning is done with the cover up and the cover does not go down till its warmed up and everything is dry. Gas and sea water
