Action at the fuel dock….

Now remember that we had a accident, and that it came with a tremendous sound, its the sound that bothered me the most, i have super sensitive hearing, and i was definitely still suffering form PTS, so, the morning of August 2nd, early in the morning, we were dozing still , a tremendous BANG lifted both of us right off the bed, the whole boat shook, and my first thought was, this is it, now we are really goners!!!        Both of us made it in record time to the cockpit, to first notice a very heavy fog had settled all around, but then the smell hit us, little black bits of boat, SOMEONE ELSE’s  BOAT!!!, floated all around us, a small motor vessel, having an inside gas engine, while filling, and NOT having the blower on, blew to pieces  when the owner turned the key.      He did not get seriously hurt, which is totally amazing, as the whole stern was broken off.       I went to get the camera, and the zoom lens,to take some photos  and we realized we had been lucky, that none of the pieces that flew off the boat hit us.       The rest of the morning i cleaned off all the pieces of soot.    Okay….   we survived this one!!LVN.Kechikan Dundas Island PR Expl. boat cannery Port Edward Kumealon Inlet Hartley bay 054LVN.Kechikan Dundas Island PR Expl. boat cannery Port Edward Kumealon Inlet Hartley bay 052LVN.Kechikan Dundas Island PR Expl. boat cannery Port Edward Kumealon Inlet Hartley bay 057The Port authority folks were there very quickly, everything came to a halt, fire trucks stood ready , just in case, no fuel to be had by other boaters.
