is basically taking the fuel
from the tank and passing it through fuel
filters over and over again to remove as much of the crud and particulates from the fuel
as possible. It usually involves a fuel pump
and two or more fuel filters. The first is usually a 30 micron water separating filter, and the second is usually a five micron filter or so.
This is done to help prevent fuel-contaminant related issues when the boat is using the fuel. This is especially important in bad weather, when the motion of the boat may bring crud off the bottom of the tank.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
