Good thing the two guys in the skiff were there to hook it and pull it away from the other boats. The boat owners on the dock owe those guys a huge thank you and several drinks. Thankfully no one was hurt and more boats weren't damaged. That could have gotten real ugly, real fast.

I watched that this morning, live from the chopper feed... it was nuts! Those two guys in the ctr. console deserve a commendation for that move, saved a ton of boats from a LOT of damage!! Not to mention put their own azzes on the line to do it.

Wow, those two guys did a great job pulling that boat away from the others.

Remind me not to park next to the guy that was pushing it away from his boat and into the others

What did the two guys use to hook the boat that was on fire??? Boat hook, anchor line??
