First: I hope all involved are un-injured.

Second:
Why do I see Bad Boys 2 re-playing in my mind right now.

The boat was american flag painted and was named American Pie. The fuel tank blew and it pretty much burnt to the ground. It happened on 75 right in front of my plant yesterday. The Myco it came off of looked pretty trashed also.

A hard enough blow onto the pavement and a compromised battery would do it in a heartbeat. Not to mention if the boat was also collided with ala another vehicle.

Wow. I hope everyone is alright.

What exit/mile marker would that be around?

Freaky. I had a 38 with patriot graphics called American Pie. Sorry for those involved. Any idea what the size was, tow vehicle and if additional front/rea straps were in place?

No injuries according to the news cast. Thats some good luck mixed with the bad. What little they showed of the boat looked small, maybe a 29? Hope the guys insurance buys him a new one!
