A green 17-foot Bristol Skiff caught fire this afternoon and was drifting around the mooring field in East Polpis Harbor. It managed to catch another boat on fire before it was extinguished by the Marine Department. It was then towed up onto the beach at the east parking lot at Polpis Harbor where it was still smoldering several hours later. Here are a few shots I grabbed later in the afternoon.
