Dry dock time became longer and longer. My half empty fuel container was no longer covered. Finally time to start engine. Hardly would run. Fuel bowls full of water. My mistake of leaving fuel to heat up in sun and cool at night. It separated and condensated Part that makes me mad is I know better!! I added some stabil and put in my Suburban. Live, learn, forget!!

We all get that feeling. I too have been guilty.

Great, now you not only have the problem with the boat but the Suburban also.
Was that a fuel/oil mix? I've run old 50:1 in my Yamaha lawn tractor and it smoked like crazy and fouled the plugs....good side is I got rid of mosquitoes and got a good laugh from the neighbors.

I have a 43 gallon tank in Sub. So it all got diluted with no ill effects.

Dave,
Be safe !
I'm hoping Irma takes a hard left before it hits Florida, but just in case ? Don't mess with it.
I'm sorry I did not get a respond to Texas, because I was way out of town, and internet for me was limited.
My thoughts are with you all,. In the grand scheme a fiberglassic boat can be replaced. But You can not !
we need you all around ! We are already for an extended stay for family from FLA. just in case ? I'm hoping all goes well !
