I'm going through much the same thing on my boat....if it's fuel related. What did you find in the filter? Did you check if you had water in the fuel? Are you gasoline, or diesel? Do you have an inspection panel in the tank for cleaning?
You are on the right track with a backup filter, and a valve to divert. But you need to start with a basically clean system, starting with the tank. Then clean filters, and uncontaminated fuel. A day of sailing will be more enjoyable if you know you can rely on power when it's needed. I hate having an engine on a sailboat, but unfortunately we need it.
