Well I don't know if you consider it "Jet Fuel" but I do know that some guys with really hopped up outboards run Airplane fuel.

Haven't confirmed whose boat it is...

I know a couple of guys on the Ham Lake fire department...as soon as I find out, I will let you guys know.

Supposedly it was a 40' v-hull.

I just drove by the house...didn't stop though. The news media was there...looked like he had his hands full! I believe it is "Grand Illusions" house. Couldn't tell if it was his boat in the garage or not. The roof fell on the boat and everything looked pretty "charred"! Between him and some other local guys, I think there are a couple of boats that frequent the house. The house has sustained quite a bit of damage too!

Well, thank God nobody was hurt!

Now it's a matter of jumping through all those "nasty" insurance hoops!

Thanks for the update! He had a 38 top gun that he was selling as well as his new 50 hustlers. That could have turned out allot worse.

If you watch the Video that sure looks like a white top kick in the background.
