We saw this boat burning yesterday why we were out on the water. I had no idea it was such a nice yacht. We would have been passing by about the time that picture for the paper was taken... There was a very 30+ foot CC with triple engines that was downwind, I would be surprised if he did sustain some damage.

In the midst of the two year renovation, with all kinds of specialty knobs and fabrics worht between 3-3.5 million, all done by himself. Hmmm.
