My friend's boat has a dual parallel primary filter system, as he has been caught trying to power off a lee shore, and had the fuel filter clog from the debris that is generally stirred up from the bottom of the tank in heavy seas. Stopping the engine, changing the filter and trying to bleed the fuel system before restarting the engine would have cost him his boat, as it nearly did once, before he installed the new filter system.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
