Well I have seen a gas boat explode and nothing was left except what was raining out of the sky. Bodies(not fully intact) strewn about. It was enough to convince me. But ultimately, you are correct. In the grand scheme of things it is rare. But I buy diesel for piece of mind. I just could not sleep on a gas boat with a gasoline engine(generator) running INSIDE the boat. But that's just me.

You will need very good hands on skills and a fat wallet to get a 34' diesel vessel in your price range quickly up to long distance cruising standards. Let us know where your selection process ends up.

I love the exhaust growl/rumble of a low-revolution diesel engine.
