But as soon as the driver put the boat in gear, something went horribly wrong. Frantic, the rider climbed back into the boat, and the crew tried to diagnose the problem. Smoke was billowing out of the lockers at this point, and further investigation revealed bright orange flames. Naturally, the crew grabbed the fire extinguisher to put out the flames, but it was too late. The fire had become out of control. A call to abandon ship was ordered, and the crew gathered their precious cargo, including their dog, wakeboards, phones and wallets, before jumping overboard. Shortly after entering the water, a nearby fishing boat saw the commotion and brought them safely to shore, where they were left to watch helplessly as their family boat of 15 years went up in flames.
