    Thanks for the better pics. I think you'll be okay now that I can see the bow-eye much better. And because of that hill-lip, you likely are at the best spot currently.

    Sounds like a plausible recipe - yet there are no bilge pump on those models, AFAIK. Had to be some other ignition-source. All the damage is above the tank - there's a wad of connectors in that area...

    ^^^ Yup, TBV dampener would be my advice too, but also look for any exhaust hoses that may have come lose or popped-free - as sometimes exhaust leaks inside the hull can snuff-out the engine.
