Default Boat storage fire in Maine

Several friends lost their boats last week in a terrible fire. In the building was the 92 Cig that a buddy and I picked up in Chicago several years back and did a full resto.
Also lost was a board members 37 OL, A sweet '07 Top Gun, a 45 Sonic that had not even been wet after a total re-power and paint and another friends '07 292 Formula.

Just amazing that there was so little left of these incredible machines.

The pictures do not do all the damage justice. You have to struggle to ID any of the boats. There is litterally NOTHING left. Even the steel trailers melted. The boat with the number 6 drives on it was the only one were you could even say ok that is a drive!! The other drives were just melted away.

It's almost just as well they're totally gone. For me, it would be worse to see it badly damaged, but still barely recognizable. I always felt that if mine caught fire, once it got to a certain point and I couldn't stop it, I'd just let it go. At least this way, there will be no doubt about how the insurance will look at them.

Still - heartbreaking.
