Boat explosion in Greenport, I'm glad the two are not injured severely. Everyone be careful, don't rush and write down steps for your start up procedures. I assume the Capt did not turn on the blower to vent then bilge of fumes after gassing up or he did what I almost did when I got distracted and put the gas nozzle in the pole holder.

Scary stuff
I had already reached out to a well respected NYA member who is in that marina to confirm he and his boat are OK as well.
Sounds like it could have been a hell of a lot worse and they are lucky to be alive

Glad they seem to be OK, but AirLifting is big $‘s. Hope for the best. You have to have Your A Game on while re-fueling.
