About 25 years ago a guy I work with had a battery in his 14 ft boat fall over (no battery box) and short out against his 6 gal metal fuel tank. Burnt a hole in it, gas spilled, ignited. Him and his buddy both jumped out of boat and started swimming, his buddy almost drowned. No fire extinguisher either. Both could have been dead, pretty lucky and foolish.
Moral of the story.... do not play with batteries, lead acid or lithium, both are very unforgiving.

While fishing one day, I hooked a decent bass and got excited, had to maneuver a bit and tossed my landing net towards the stern.

Landing net hoop happened to land perfectly against both battery terminals and the handle of the net was in my lap.

It got real hot, real quick and was not very pretty.
