Re: Replace Diesel Fuel Regularly

I just bought a lovely Pearson 303, but it had been sitting in the yard for the last two years, and I was more than a little concerned about the diesel, as I have to sail her from Boston to Newport. After many phone calls I finally got a company to come to the boat, take all 14 gallons out of it, they cleaned the inside of the tank after the fuel removal. $275 all in, but at least I have peace of mind now!
