Man survives boat explosion at dock

A boat at a Boston dock blew up late Tuesday morning injuring the owner on board.

The 34-foot fiberglass powerboat named The Desperado was docked at the Boston Harbor Shipyard Marina when witnesses heard an explosion around 10:30 a.m.

“He came up the dock, his hair was singed back on the side of his head, an older guy in his 60’s,” witness Howard Rudzinksy told WBZ-TV.
