Beautiful CanadaRanger Tug 31S in front of Chrome Island, BC

I am new to boating. Bought a 2019 Ranger Tug in April followed by taking a short boating course and headed out. Spent from late May to early August in the Canadian Pacific north.
Will be shipping the boat (only ten foot beam, hence able to trailer) to Tennessee next month to start the Great Loop.

I hope you like this pic of beautiful Canada.

What would I do if an explosion occurs on a boat that I was working on? What was the cause? How could this happen?
