    8 vs 10ft powerpole on hewes redfisher 18

    I would go with 8’, think the 10’s are just way too big and get in the way if someone is fishing off the stern.

    Water in fuel

    Know what you mean but at times you just don’t have a choice, have thought of having to do that myself just in case. Having a problem trying to find the proper O ring for gas cap and clear bowl filter. West marine here is useless sorry to say. as a side note. After owning the boat for seven years this has only happen twice in the last year. Each time the same three people were with me, all very large. Wondering if by them sitting in the front water is being splashed up into my fuel line vent, just seems strange only when they are onboard. Just saying. Lol. πŸ˜‚

    Looking for ideas for new fish cleaning stand

    You can get already made ones with hose connection for a little over $100. Alum frame and some sort of white material for top.

    Due to the above, thinking of changing from my canister filter to a clear bowl at bottom with drain to check condition of fuel and drain if needed. Any pro or con to my thinking. Thanks fin

    Water in fuel

    Last weekend fueled boat, just under half full. Filled to 3/4. While running noticed mph was 30 and rpm 4800, not normal. Normal is 30 @ 4000. Did have a heavy load of people wt wise. Ran 1/2 hr. Stopped to fish awhile. Then ran again. Within three minutes alarm sounded and went into limp mode. Went into BS Marina, Charlotte Harbor. Called my mechanic and explained problem and stated I felt it was water in fuel because it happened almost a year ago after fueling at same marina. I always use this marina for fuel. Had me run some tests and agreed about water in fuel. Did not have the items aboard to correct myself. (Will not happen again). Had mechanic at BS take a look and agreed with water. Changed out and cleaned filters, removed about three gallons of water till gas was crystal clear. After leaving marina boat ran 30 @ 4000 as it should. As stated this happen last year also having to drain three gallons of gas with water until clear. This happened after fueling and only ran about 200 yards. Marina both times stated it is not their gas as it is tested weekly. Checked my gas cap O ring and it appears good. Boat does not collect water in bilge except after heavy rains then only a quart or two. Never an oil slick when I turn on the bilge pump to test it and there is some water in the bilge from washing. does anyone have an idea what I may look for as the cause. Again it has happened only twice in the last year and never in the seven years of owning it before this. Sorry to be so wordy but want to give all details of what I know. Thanks guys. πŸ˜€πŸ˜€fin Does anyone know the size O ring needed for the gas fill cap. Want to change it for the h..... of it. More than likely orig. 2003 2200v
