Hey CD—Looks like you've got a rival for the largest solar array on a sailboat...

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.

Fantastic.

It is my goal to have one too.

Filters? Unscrew, fill, screw. I don't know how (well I "know how" but have never done it) as my Westerbeke is self priming. Works great.

Not sure on marine..but it should be the same. On automotive diesels, we use an additive called Stanadyne. Use it for diagnostics (sticking injectors) and maintenance. Every fuel filter change, fill the fuel filter bowl 100% Stanadyne.

BTW, nice boat... Congrads
