Re: Fuel line shut off options?
in my home and automotive life I don't mind conveniences, automation and all that. But on my boat I prefer things old school. My boat has a manual fuel shutoff, and I like it that way.
have I ever forgotten to open the fuel shutoff? yea, once ... opening and closing the fuel shutoff is on my checklist now.
To my mind, the time and money spent automating the fuel shutoff, and accounting for failure modes, could be better spent on other maintenance or on sailing!
