Looked out to see this just a few minutes ago. Canadian flag, about 50’ cruiser with a LOT of white smoke coming from probably engine room. Seattle police and fire boats and several private boats on the scene. Responders went aboard and evidently suppressed the fire from within. Fireboat did not spray it.

Other boats are now gone and original smoking boat is under her own power and continuing cruise north. Evidently nothing too serious but it sure was a lot of smoke.

Yikes! Pretty amazing she’s under her own power.

The big excitement here was the thunderstorm/microburst that tore through the city last night just after dinner. Trees down, power out to thousands, seven boats sunk on their moorings, two missing completely. Lots of moorings dragged including mine. And my mooring guy was too busy salvaging boats to put mine back where it belongs today. Says he’ll get to it tomorrow. Sure makes me glad that he replaced my bottom chain when he inspected it this spring.

Reminds me of Cheech and Chong.
