AFAIK those Facet pumps are all spec'd for gasoline service and will fall apart in diesel use. For some reason any pump that is intended for diesel seems to be in the $200 and up range, check to be SURE they are suitable for diesel.

Brak, considering what a service costs, CAN you remove the tank to clean it out? Getting it off the boat and being able to wash and tumble it can make the job easy, even if it takes some doing to get it out and ashore.
