Interesting. That is the first case I've heard of phase separation actually happening (though I would not rule out water getting in somewhere; time will tell on that one.)

Sorry about your expense, but happy to hear you're back up and running.

Glad you're sorted out 4ster!
What kind of engine do you have again?

Personally I would say the solution is to use the boat year around.

FWIW here in California they will be switching to a winter blend gas in a few weeks. After the fuel change would be the time to fill up.

Last time I got water in my tank...from swamping it on shore, I sucked the minor amount of water out of the tank and put it in my waste oil container. No way would I ever put it in my vehicle.

I thought they did already, as a tactic to lower the artificially inflated prices?

We do live in California for a reason. Other folks fault for living where it gets to cold to enjoy their sports year around.

Guess they did. We were on vacation last week and saw ridiculous gas prices, over $6. a gallon in remote areas. Seems the winter blend is working great in LA for emissions. We could see the hills in some places thru the smog The valley on I5 coming home was worse though.

150HPDI
Its a 2 stroke where the oil is mixed by direct injection into the cylinders.

When the boat was new I could con people into diving from the boat with me in the winter. All my dive buddies wised up! There really is no way for everyone to get out of the weather on my rib.

I will monitor the filters more closely than I have been in case water is getting in from somewhere I can't locate.

You've got more shelter than me! Maybe we should setup another buddy boat day someplace between us?

Ha and we were just talking about where to go for Thanksgiving and Seattle came up. Then I checked the normal weather for November, and we started looking at Catalina LOL

That would be fun. The last one turned into a bigger production than you had originally planned, but it was a great time.

You have a dive site in mind?
