That boat is carbon fiber, if memory serves, that stuff is damn near impossible to put out.

I was on Lido when this happened. My brother sent me a blurry phone pic and I looked at the sky and saw the big plume of smoke. Heard from others that the guys were standing on the bow. Hope that's the case and everyone is ok. It took a while for the fire boat to get there and only the bow is visible now above water.

To say it's a shame is a huge understatement considering the extraordinary time, effort and money put into that boat. In the end though, carbon fiber can be replaced...Scotty and Marc's safety is what matters.
