Thanks Hampster for the report. UPDATE! The Event took place on Friday the 11th and is an Electric Boat – No fire just a lot of smoke. Well, you know what they say? Where?
This afternoon the station received a report of a vessel on fire at Homewood Marina. Upon arrival, the station found North Lake Tahoe Fire Protection District on scene battling a fire on an electric boat. Fortunately, no one was injured during this fire, and no property damage to the pier was reported.
This is an important reminder to know where your fire safety equipment is while onboard a vessel. Fires happen quickly on boats, so being prepared is your best chance of stopping a fire quickly. Be safe out there!
I know for many of us here, we are combustion freaks. I get that? But time does march on, and one must push the envelope to make it all work better. I personally think an electric boat in the water is a disaster waiting to happen. But one day I will be proven wrong, because things will all be worked out. I do know in Europe it’s all normal. Going electric car and boat is just another way to get around. So kudos to Stan Craft, hacker and the others for pushing. Now back to the comments on how much we all hate Electric stuff.
