WOW, that's scary, glad to hear he made it out. I hope we can learn what caused it so others can maybe learn from it.
This is pure speculation, but this was my first thought. I have heard some boats are built with the fuel fill hose being non fuel grade, I have heard hughes craft is one of them. It looked like he just left the harbor, perhaps he had just filled his boat, topped it off and there was fuel in the fill up tube. The hose leaked because of the fuel being in the non rated hose. Like I said, pure speculation on my part, but I have heard of this issue before. Glad he's OK.We know fuel/vapors got into the bilge and were ignited by the kerosene heater. We don't know how the fuel got there or what created the spill. It may be hard to find out, since it blew up!
Where will you install it? Bilge or cabin? Just curious and interested myself. One of my concerns is fire on the water.Jim,
Glad your doing better, thankfully it was just a boat we lost.
Talk to you soon and look forward to hearing the lesson learned.

It is nice to see people immediately coming to help while not knowing if there will be subsequent explosions. Heroes in my book. Some run from danger and other run to it. Ken
