Just talked with an amigo that crews the Nina, and he said they had a bad fire; gas generator problem, caught all the other volatiles,fuel, etc...burned a bunch of wood. Haven't heard from the skipper yet, but she's in the yard, hauled already...anyone neaby her with details?....Yaaargh! We push 'em hard, and **** happens,eh? I'm still planking Royaliste from damage sustained in the St. Lawrence in a gale last summer.....

Nothing on their website: http://www.thenina.com except for shipyard time in Bayou La Batre, AL on Jan 3 to Feb 4, 2008.
Here's an article in the Houston Chronicle about a fire sparked by a generator: http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/nation/5432427.html
I can't get to the article from where I'm at due to network problems. Maybe someone can do a c&p.
I was not able to pull the article - even after doing an archive search. It appears they withdrew the article from the website. I just hope for the best.
