Filtering diesel fuel?
As previously posted, we are bringing a boat up from FL to NC, starting 9/24. The captain bringing it up will be going outside around St Augustine, coming in at Beaufort, NC (weather permitting, obviously). I have had a suggestion from the dock master where the boat is currently to have the fuel filtered because "going outside can stir it up." So... thoughts?!
Just quick background, the boat is a 1983 Newport 33, only 1335 hrs on the original Universal diesel, but the engine has been maintained and is getting thorough once-over before leaving. It currently starts and runs fine, no smoke, etc., and we'v replaced the alternator.
