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.

Replying to Topic 'Water in fuel'
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!
