Always wondered why the biggest fear of boaters was fire.

The first 17 seconds provided the necessary establishing shot and helped build a sense of peril. I especially liked how the filmmaker broke with the rule of three, surprising us with a final fourth - and especially more dramatic - pass to finally extinguish the fire. By focusing on just the action (without too much gratuitous use of FX), we're left to imagine for ourselves the frantic dialog between the pilot and passenger during that last approach as the wind changes and the smoke obscures a safe course to the burning boat. A courageous choice was not allowing us to clearly hear the dialog of the hidden onlookers in the background - which a more traditional filmmaker would have used to provide a back story and ongoing narrative - and, instead, challenges the audience to interpret the scene for themselves.

Because it means they'll have to recover their burned-to-the-waterline vessel at the marina launch ramp, while getting laughed at the entire time.
