    British magazine's reporting (using a rigged test boat) about what can happen with a propane leak inside the cabin, I think..

    @Simon Sexton , I appreciate your enthusiasm as a new member, but you need to know that all of these things appeared in the SBO forums at least several times, the first usually within minutes of it being published or happening! ;^)

    Look for NEW news, its much more interesting!

    If you remember the video they had to do a whole bunch of tries to finally get it to explode.

    half off one.
    What's with all the wood flying around by the mast? It looks like it was attached to the mast head.

    Find out what model that boat is so we can all avoid buying a boat that flys apart that easily.

    I don't think the British are use to the U.S. term to make some cash by "parting out" the boat.

    It looked like the safest place to be was in the head taking a dump.
    I like how they had the boat drifting out there, top blown off, with two perfectly good horseshoe preservers attached to the stern rail.

    Ain't old news if one has not seen it. Sometimes we need to be reminded regularly of dangers below decks.

    RE: wooden pieces.......covers for lockers below bunks?

    Final part of a lengthly series of disaster documentations done by Yachting Monthly. They rolled it over previously with cameras mounted all around the interior. Very educational series. They take boating much more seriously in the UK.
    We've subscribed to YM and to PBO for quite a while. Nothing really compares to them from the US "coffee table charter promotion" magazines, strictly IMHO.
    Also, fwiw, I have visited a boat destroyed at the dock the night before by a propane explosion. Peeled the deck back over the front of the still-attached bow pulpit. Kind of like a lid peeled back on an old fashioned sardine can.
    We walked under the inverted deck above/across the head walk. No fire, however .
    It was quite sobering.
    (That hull was later rebuilt - new deck and rig - and relaunched named, of course, the "Phoenix". )

    The roll over video was scary , the amount of "stuff" flying about was impressive
