There are only three things in life that are certain : death, taxes, and the wind blowing at Capps Creek!

It happens all the time.  This is why I quit working on inboard and I/O (inboard/outboard) boats. They are fire traps.

When you take a fuel tank and complete engine system....and then tightly bury it all under upholstery so there is no natural ventilation whatsoever..... don't act surprised when they blow up !

Wrench ain't lying there......I have seen 2 I/o's incinerate and one time the boat owner fired up the boat while the poor kid at Buzzard Rock Marina @ Barkley was still fueling them and lit the pump up and killed the kid.......friggin waste
