Nice.

What is that. Is that just parts or was it a sled caught in a fire. That looks messed up. LOL.

Opps! almost forgot.
They are: a 1999 T-cat and a 2002 ZL-800
Seems the float stuck while dragging them out from behind the barn. A small puddle of gas was left on the trailer (and he thought nothing of it) The big T-cat backfired on the second pull and went up in flames.
He tried to save the ZL-800, but because he left them outside all summer, the ski tie-down crank was rusted solid. Both tanks were full. All this took about 10 minutes.

The ins. co. paid for the ZL-800, trailer, black-top driveway, siding that melted off his house from 20' away, and the paint that burned off his garage (20' off to the other side). The T-cat was not insured.
Don't know if you can see it in the pic, but the trailer acctully melted at the rear (it was dripping alum.)

Youch! No insurance on the T-Cat! I bet because it was so high having all that HP that he did not insure it. I'll bet that he will insure all of his sleds now.

Thats nasty trapper. I feel for the guy no one deserves that. Life lessons are very hard sometimes. :(

Man...it's hard to respond to seeing something like that, knowing it could maybe happen to anyone of us. Good luck getting things back together!

I think I'll pull mine off the trailer from here on out!
