    No-one hurt, but she burnt to the waterline and sank, reportedly after a fire started in an engine room. Aluminium burns like all heck when it gets a go on ! Oh well, it is a solid rocket fuel, after all. Boat looked a bit long and lean compared to others, had a cruise speed of 15 knots and a maximum of 20. The owners are heading to the site to see what can be salvaged, which surely would not seem to be much.
