I have a West Marine filter (a cheaper version of the Baja which is stainless rather than plastic). Don't know if the one you have is the same, but it is very good at flitering out water and larger pieces of crap. Main advantage is that it saves having to replace the Racor elements all the time and can handle large amounts of water. You need to put the fuel through the filter quite slowly if the fuel is really contaminated - which sounds like it for you.
After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.
