Fire on-board is among the most serious of matters that boaters can experience. Due to the close proximity of fuel tanks and a number of electrically operated items that can result in a spark or arc, any and all fires on a boat should be a matter for immediate action. 

While your MasterCraft boat is equipped with a fire suppression system and fire extinguishers, it is important to make a quick and calculated decision regarding any fires. If the extinguishing/suppression materials do not quickly extinguish the fire, it may become necessary to abandon ship. 

Make sure everyone on board has a PFD and swims as quickly and as far as possible, up wind and upstream, from the boat. 

If gasoline is released, it will float on top of the water. It may spread out or move with the body of water?s current.
