Is it an I/O? My opinion would be if you have the room put it on. You should be able to pick up the kit from west marine. An once of prevention.

I'd put on in. Right now you probably have a small bowl and filter. Doesn't take much water to fill that up. There should be instructions with the new separator as far as proper instillation.

It must be installed vertically, with the seperater canister hanging below. Otherwise you would not be able to remove it to change or dump the contents out without the fuel running into the bottom of your boat. Gas fumes are not good in an enclosed area. You should be able to get this at any marine service center.

Excellent, I am coming up this weekend to get things ready, The wax the hull, bottom paint the edges thing, then plan on launching the weekend after. Hopefully they will have the docks hooked up by then.

AND buy a bunch of extra fuel filters AND practice changing them in 6'-8' while halfway between the mainland and Isle Royale. That's when the crap that's been gathering in the bottom of the tank is going to get stirred up and sucked into your fuel system. This is the voice of experience...it isn't a whole lot of fun...

Lota Lota...

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
