the marina is less than an hour from my house,all boats were outside for winter storage,a lot of them come from the harbors in chicago.arson is suspected to be the cause of the fire.very sad.

I wonder if any of the boats had battery chargers or heaters on board.

Spring Brook is where I bought my Powerquest, very nice facility and people. Hope this doesn't turn out to be a donky show.

I would be pissed if that was my boat. I guess if the boat wasn't well cared for you wouldn't care. If your boat is really nice you know your going to get the shaft from the insurance company. Seems these fires happen more often than you would think. A couple of years ago there was another big fire up at Winthrop Harbor Yacht Club over the winter.
