B32 is on a distinguished road
Bayfield 25 Fuel Tank Capacity

Our B25, according to the specs, has a 40L tank (10 gal. approx. assuming they're working in US gallons and not imperial.)

From what we have calculated from fill-ups, known motoring hours etc., this proves correct.

What year is your B25 - judging by your picture, with the 2 windows, it is prior 1984 or so ?.... Ours is a 1986. We trailered it to Florida from southwestern Ontario last year. What a hoot. Would do it again anytime as long as we had a solid month on the water to make the effort worthwhile.

Ours is a 1982. 10 gallons sounds about right since i overflowed the tank at 8 gallons last time i filled it up.

Polishing fuel 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.

Thanks again,

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.

mr. Moderator is right. And with price of fuel, we'll all be polishing by the end of this year.

Now how bout someone getting the goods on bio-diesel on the water? All the water taxis in Newport harbor advetise they run on it. We better take hold of that issue before the government does, they've screwed the pumpout stations, and manditory holding tank certifations here in Rhode Island.

Had you noticed an unusually strong odor of french fries in Newport Harbor last summer - especially when an Oldport launchboat cruises by? Gives me an abnormal craving for fast food.

Bayfield 25 Fuel Tank Size

I'm guessing the 10 gal. capacity is Imperial measure since reading further along, the literature we have says 45L.
