    Yamaha Explodes in Florida

    Everyone be careful out there! This was a rental, but it could happen to anyone. Vent those seats! Not bashing Yamaha, I own one.

    There had to be some type of gas leak or fumes going into the engine compartment that had enough air mixture to create an explosive atmosphere.

    This is why you should always pull the seat to vent any fumes before starting your craft

    +1. I always try to pull my seat prior to starting and I also added a couple extra flo-rite vents to my hull to help it ventilate.

    Serious injury or death was not the result of this incident......I got more hurt when I fell off my chair after seeing the pictures......
