Default My interesting Offshore Report!!

What a day we had, Was getting ready to make my second dive of the day when I looked up and saw Black smoke about 1/2 mile away. Knew right away that it was a fire canceled dive and headed over to investigate. What we found was two men in the water clinging to a ice chest with life jackets on. We helped them aboard made sure they were alright and called the Coast Guard. Coast guard, Orange Beach Police Boat and Orange Beach Fire Fighting Boat arrive on sight. Fire was put out people transferred to Orange Beach police Boat. We left and went on diving as Cutter arrived on scene and I assume towed the smoldering 27 ft. boat back. Two people on board said it was an electrical fire that very quickly went out of control. Water was smooth with about 3 foot rollers there lucky day. The boat was a rental club boat out of Sportsman Marina. Now for the fishing report, Water was dirty almost every spot. Got a few Flounder and Friend David got one Grouper.

Boat On Fire

Nice job out there. They are lucky indeed that another boat was in the area and that the seas were relatively calm. I'd say they owe you a solid handshake and a case of cold Heineken.
