Water in fuel
Sorry to go back over old ground. There still seem to be issues with water in the fuel for many boat owners. Here is my advice (learned the hard way):
Try to use gas from an busy outfit that has a high turnover.
Try to leave the boat with a full tank if is is going to sit idle for more than a few days.
If the boat is going to sit for more than 30 days, use a stabilizer.
The combination filer/water separator that came with my 2000 Moomba was next to useless. Fit a quality water separator with a bleed will allow you to monitor how much water contamination you are getting. I like the models that allow you to sight the water level through a clear bowl however these are not approved for inboard gas installations.

I am considering moving my vent. I checked it out over vacation, when I am weighted down my vent cap is under water for anywhere from 6 to 12 seconds at takeoff. The way the vent cap is designed water would have to be magic to make it all the way into the tank but I think it could happen. I took the vent cap off and it was wet inside.
somethin to think about.Bruce Fuerstenberg
Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting...holy shit!...what a ride!
