I know it sounds harsh after having lost his two kids in a boating accident, but really the police don't have to look to far for laying the blame for the tragedy.

He has come out in the Herald today saying he wants to burn the boat …..good luck trying fool, the boat is aluminium, the melting point of which is 660.32??C.

Sorry mate, I know you hate yourself and are probably irrational right now but this won't solve the problem of the tiny litle fact that you went out in the boat without a bung…..then exasperated the problem of taking on water by powering away and thus moving all that water on board into the stern.

The real killer in stiuations like this is panic and ignorance, burning the boat won't help that.
