WOODEN SHIPS BURN FAST
Here is a video of a small wooden cruise ship in Vietnam catching fire. You can see that it only takes about two minutes for the fire that begins in the stern to completely engulf the boat. When you check the Shipwreck page on our site you will note that fire is one of the main reasons why ships go down. Wooden boats with gasoline engines certainly have a very high fire risk and wooden boat owners need to take extra precautions to avoid on board fires.
