  Smoke from the fire could be seen from several miles away.  Oliveira said the boat was destroyed.  He said damage to the sailboat and another vessel was estimated at around $10,000.  Oliveira says investigators talked with the boat owner, Danial Kim of Newton .  He said he was varnishing on the vessel and was using a propane heater to dry the varnish and keep warm.  He left the marina about a half hour before the fire was reported.
