Water separating fuel filter suggestions

3 posts in this topic

I plan on putting a water separating fuel filter on my boat this year. What brands are you happy with? With the research I've done, I like the Racor with the see-through bowl and drain.

I've been using Racor for years on diesel boats, they do the job, elements are readily available. Depending on your intended use, the clear bowl for gasoline is not USCG approved, that means no commercial use ie. guiding etc. Just be sure you mount it in an area that you can get a coffee can or similar under it to catch the fuel when changing the element so you won't have gas all over the place. Shop around for replacement elements, they can be spendy.

If I didn't get one with the clear bowl do you empty it a few times a season and replace the filter once a year?

      If a stream is non-navigable but has been meandered, the shoreland owners own to the thread (centerline) of the stream. If a lake or stream is non-navigable and not meandered, ownership of the bed is as indicated on individual property deeds    its sad that just a few bad apples can ruin it for the rest of us,

      That would be unfortunate if it was shut down. But I wouldn't blame the property owners if they did, as I wouldn't like my property getting trashed either. My oldest daughter, and son, both caught their first rainbow trout out of there 2 years ago, and it's always a must stop on our way to Grand Marais. How is it possible that the river itself is private property?

      For anyone that's interested, the docks were not in on the east side of Island as of Saturday. It was nice to see the lake a little higher than it normally is this time of year but the water was still way too cold for much crappie action - at least where I was fishing. Lots of logs and debris floating around in the middle of the lake so pay attention out there!

      thanks everyone for the input, we have decided to drive and take our own kayaks for the convenience. plus we can carry more tackle.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!
