Boat Fire in Kachemak
We were just exiting the Homer harbor this morning enroute for Flat Island when we heard the mayday call for the boat on fire about 4 miles off Macdonald Spit. Good thing the "Happy Hooker" was nearby and plucked all 5 (2 children) off the boat.... didn't sound like anyone had to hit the water. Anyone know the cause of the fire? Attached a pic of it as we went by. The woman making the mayday call did a great job of giving coordinates with the call... sounded a bit shook up, but given the situation I think she did a great job.
