Sabre 28 Fuel Tank

Last year I purchased a 1974 sabre 28 equipped with an Atomic 4 engine with approximately 3800 hours of service. Last season and much of this season the engine performed flawlessly, however this September the engine began to stall out while underway. I found some water and small particles in fuel filter and although I had added fuel additives to the tank during the season, I suspect fuel contamination. Any thoughts on the process to solve this problem, i.e. is it necessary to drain the tank, is there a screen or filter upstream between or in the tank prior to the fuel filter. Thanks, Rick Fagan
