Guess Where He Put the Rod
A North Carolina
man got a rude awakening when the family boat exploded. Seems the
boater had mistakenly tried to fuel his boat through a rod holder
instead of the fuel fill. Realizing his mistake, the boater astutely
washed out the bilges, but it seems residual fumes were ignited when
he turned the ignition key and the boat went up like a Roman candle.
No one was seriously hurt.
The Volvo Penta D8 fills a gap in the company’s line of recreational-boat-ready diesels, and it’s already linked to a next-generation IPS pod. Take our word for it, you’ll be seeing more of this engine at the next boat shows and beyond.
