This morning in Marin Martinique I was enjoying my morning coffee when I saw the smoke plume.

A fair size catamaran was ablaze. I jumped in the dink to see if I could be of any help to anyone as it was in a pretty crowded anchorage and if I was near by I would want to move especially if I was downwind.

By the time I got there it was starting to break up and obviously not a lot anyone could do about putting the fire out. The boats immediately downwind were unoccupied and the Sapeur Pompier were not doing anything. As I was leaving there was a dramatic flare so I guess a gas cylinder had cooked off.

Within an hour it had sunk.
