Sorry but no, even the epic fail thread is not epic enough to contain this amount of failure

If anyone wants to seriously laugh their guts off til they can't move, go read his build thread

This raises an interesting sort of SamNavy question in my mind.

Aboard maritime vessels, both surface craft and submersibles, fires are typically fought using ordinary seawater, as it is always in plentiful supply.

I realize that aircraft carriers are equipped with airport-style foam systems on the flight and hanger decks, and that submarines are equipped with the necessary supplies to deal with torpedo and cruise-missile fuel as well (do any SSBNs still carry liquid-fueled ICBMs?)

But what about everywhere else?

Even nuclear-propelled warships carry diesel engines and the fuel to supply them. Many ships also carry small launch craft with gasoline engines (think Coast Guard cutters) and aboard modern civilian cruise ships, rigid lifeboats are almost universally equipped with small engines as well. Additionally, commercial ferries are often equipped to transport passenger cars and small trucks, each with its own supply of gasoline or diesel fuel aboard. Commercial fishing vessels and other such small craft designed for extended-duration cruising carry massive quantities of diesel fuel (in proportion to their total displacement) in tanks which may be old and poorly maintained, and engine room equipment which is aged and in a state of relative neglect.

What is the standard practice for firefighting in environments such as these?

Feel bad for the dude, apparently this is him:


Although the first few extra cranks were dumb, especially past the big spark in the beginning, and the blowing was obviously pointless and technically harmful, he was trying decent things with just horrible luck after that.

The can was apparently his fuel tank? He pulled it out to stop feeding the carb, although that dripped down the fender, and his blowing eventually blew some flames on the ground and ignited the can. He realized his mistake and attempted to get the can out, thus igniting himself. Shitty shitty luck after only a few stupid mistakes. I certainly hope, after seeing the picture above, that he learned his lesson(s).

I read in his build thread he got burned but didn't know how bad. Thanks for posting. We should all learn something from this. Personally, I will be getting two new fire extinguishers to compliment the two I already have. I will also have a metal 55 gallon barrel open outside to throw hot **** into if I find myself in need of that. We are all making light of this and every one knows it could have been a lot worse.....I am glad Stein is okay, and hey! It wasn't his dick beatin hand......

I have a friend that works for a company that does fire extinguishers and I am sure mine are waaaaay out dated. It won't cost me anything so yes, I really will do this! I have the 55 gal drum so again, no cost.

Not enough pressure shows that the gas that helps force the extinguishing agent out is low. Too much pressure shows that the extinguishing agent is starting to break down.

I always wondered about that, and why the gauges had so much range above nominal.
