Everybody who knows nothing about boats thinks all performance boats are Baja's. LOL

Plus, I know Bob the guy that made that statement. One hell of a fire fighter, but he aint a boater. LOL

Might be right about it being a baja model. Been the case more then once.
Glad everyone walked away. When is a manufactor going to offer a fire system that just pumps some of the water your sitting in to you to spray with. hmm maybe I'll draw that up and make my millions.

Well boat fires are generally Class B fires and without some help the water you are sitting in is not going to do anything but possibly make the situation worse.

But Keith if you figure something out I want in on the early stages. LOL

I think fixed systems (halon like) should be mandatory on ALL I/O's.
