The same thing took place a few years ago up in Laconia, NH. Gas boy tried to wet vac the gas out of the cabin of a boat and it went up.

Several years ago my ex brotherin law tried the wet/dry vac on a fuel spill in the bilge of his boat.Explosion that blew him and his buddy into the water and burned his boat and dock to the water. I never did like him.Joe Murray
