    Good morning h_2_0

    Thanks for your list.

    I decided not to remove any more parts. Effort and return are not right for me. Also, the Pro Star is very rarely seen on our lake.
    The boat has now been picked up by a disposal company.

    The swim platform is now mounted in my garage as a souvenir.

    Once again, I thank everyone for the great words and wish everyone a great weekend.

    things that might be able to be resold:

    exhaust manifolds (if they are not cracked from the heat of the fire)
    spark arrestor
    grab handle in rear
    valve covers (maybe)
    platform brackets
    exhaust flappers
    running gear, strut prop shaft (maybe if not bent from heat) fins
    front boat hooks

    FYI: I'm not trying to be a debbie downer or a complete tool making a list just trying to help out a little in case you are serious about parting some stuff out. Not sure what else could be by the looks of it. Again glad everyone is safe and it really sucks that was a beautiful boat.

    Yes indeed, the pylon has melted. In addition, the honeycomb construction made of aluminum in front of the pylon has also melted.

    In fire training at work they teach us to always cut the electrical power first thing if we suspect a fire that might be electrical in nature. So I keep a set of heavy duty wire cutters (along with a few other standard tools) right next to my battery just in case. Snip to the negative, snip to the positive and the fire at least should not have a source now.

    Next I have the usual decent size boat fire extinguisher but I also have a small 1 gallon bucket (actually 3 of them now). I can always toss water onto a fire and a 1 gallon bucket will always work and never run out of water if the boat is on water.

    We learn in fire training that fire extinguishers never last as long as one needs. Ever.
    This is what I did first. My main switch was under the doghouse on the starboard side. So very accessible.

    I also had a folding bucket. Unfortunately, it was in the bow and I couldn't reach it.

    What should I remove? The only parts that are still usable:
    fins
    Bathing platform
    Prop (but unfortunately was bent a little during the salvage)


    Engine would probably have to be completely disassembled and all seals, etc. replaced. Is it worth it?


    Many thanks to all for the great words. We are just glad that nothing happened to us and the season is almost over.

    Glad nobody was hurt. Has to be very emotional, nonetheless. Sorry to see this.

    Glad to see you made it to safety.

    As a lifelong boater, I can sense your obvious disappointment/heartbreak in your first post. I hope everything works out for you and you get back on the water soon.
