Was there much water in the tanks? How long would fuel sit in your tanks? I'm just curious what your ideas are on what lead to this in the first place.

i think we have a spammer here
searching for various complete sentences on google shows they posted this same thing at CF and boatloco

edit northeneyes we have a complete disclosure requirement here, if you are connected besides being a customer you might want to declare it now.

also you say you use the algee x which they sell right on their front page

Well I thought maybe I was map challenged and couldn't figure out how a west coast company was servicing an east coast boater.

bubb one of the reasons the spammer talk about then link their stuff is the way google searches works.

in this case you search for diesel or sludge or other key words google will assoc the words with the link. the more this pages gets read by people with google anylitics ( i spell badly ) the farther up their link will be on a google search

Free if you want to see someone who is map or chart challenged that would be me. I think I have said on Sailnet before. The chart table on my boat faces the stern. I can't use it. I have to bring my charts up to cockpit and align them with the bow of the boat before I can do any route planing. I know it sounds crazy but thats the way my mind works.
