[QUOTE=powerabout;153319]statistically more diesel boats ( pleasure) go up in smoke than gasoline boats
huge engines, small engine room, diesel on hot turbo = bonfire
gasoline on red hot turbo = no fire till you make a spark[/QUOTE]
Well, duh … there are more diesel boats than gas.
Regarding “gasoline on red hot turbo = no fire till you make a spark” double duh … the autoignition point of gasoline is around 500 degrees F. The lowest temperature at which steel will be any shade of red visible to the human eye is above 900 degrees F. If you don’t believe me then prove it to yourself by pouring some gas on one of your electric stove burners when it starts to glow. Get the wife and kiddies out of the house first though and make sure they call the fire department and an ambulance.
