Boat fire at my marina last night

No one on board. No injuries.

Gas or diesel powered vessel? Any indication as to cause?

Here you can see the two boats alongside smoldering. Also, you can see the satellite dish has caught fire from the heat.

I would have to assume diesel based on the size of the boat. Apparently the owner had recently left the boat. Don't know the cause.

The two boats alongside were eventually moved, but not before sustaining substantial damage.

This is the boat that was docked to port of the burning boat.

That's a nasty one! Any news on the cause? Barbecue or propane?

These pictures were taken this morning of "Suture Fancy" up in the hoist.

Absolutely horrible. I feel sorry for everyone affected. I'm not suggesting this is the cause (perhaps just speculating), but I never keep my shore power connected when I am away--not even to keep the batteries charged. It is tempting for me to run a dehumidifier and charger but with my luck...

I am assume "Suture Fancy" is a total loss?

I wouldn't be surprised if the boats along side were total losses as well.

Sad. Hate to see it but glad no one was hurt.

Seeing that just scares the bejesus out of me. I hope if my boat catches fire someone pushes the boats in the next slip out away from the fire/heat.

Yes!!
For the first 1/2 hour or so that I was there, some people that were there were saying that they believed the owner was aboard. Thankfully, that was not the case.

I would suspect that the boat to port, based on age of vessel and damage, would be written off.

How sad.

So here is a question. What do they do with these hulls and big irons? Scrap yard for metal recovery and crushing? Does the fiberglass go into a land fill?

Drug up a launch ramp, pulverized and loaded into a dumpster or two by a backhoe is our local tradition. Iron goes to the scrap yard if there's enough to mess with.
