I don't think it matters as long as it's upright does it?

With regards the state of the filter. It does look bad in the picture. Its mainly yellow dust from the gelcoat after I'd done some drilling to fit speakers and CD player etc, and you can just start to see the paint lifting. Must give it another hoover. Funny how photos make some things look worse.
Hi Nick,

Remember when I had to turn back on the Poole cruise having launched with you from Warsash? That was because that filter had not been changed in a while, despite having been serviced, and was clogged. Had I switched to the portable tanks which I connect direct, would have been able to carry on. But would not have had enought fuel for the journey.

So, as you said, always good to have a sppare on board. Then you just have to be able to recognise the syptoms, which in my case were running at full revs for 30 secs or so, then pulling back with no change in throttle setting.

So now, I need to get another, but definitely a good idea.

Cheers
Neil

Cheers Matt,

I've E mailed RIBCRAFT for a part number. I will post as soon as I get a reply with a part number. So that any other RIBCRAFT owners can store it for future reference. I think I've got a few weeks before I get out on the Brinny anyway. So no rush.

Hi

I am 99% certain this was changed on the service I had done, as the locker smelt of petrol after that had serviced it, and this was down to them changing the filter. You have the receipt there of the company who did the last service just before you bought it off of me. I believe they changed it.

regards

Richard

Richard,

Thanks. It does look like a new filter. But the whol boat looks new so its hard to work out whats original or not. I think I'm just going to buy a filter and keep it as a spare on the boat just in case. Its something I can do now and might save me a lot of embarrasment in the future for a few quid outlay.

Plus knowledge is power as they say. Its probably not hard to change a filter but its new for me.

I'd buy two fit one now and keep one for future, with the filter wrench you need to remove the old one + you know what your doing when it hits the fan in future

Ours is on the transom, we replace it yearly, theres always an amount of rusty water in it even trying to wash it out isnt worht it. Ours is a Yamaha part previously it was a similar looking affair possibly from a canal boat chandlers..

Although it didnt have any wellington boots filled with flowers or painted in primary colours on it.

Also fairly sure they havent been to bad on price the Yam one was about £8 for the replacable element.

One more thing: The filter elements are reasonably similar between manufacturers. Swapping between them is not a real big deal, as long as the thread size, mating surfaces, and flow rate are the same (or higher, in the case of flow rate.)

Manufacturers (that I'm aware of) include Sierra, Quicksilver, Yamaha, and Racor, and there are probably a bunch of others (I have a suspicion that the branded ones, Quicksilver and Yamaha specifically, are rebadged Sierras.)

When you do change it tip thefuel into a clear conatiner , it will give you and idea of what is in the fuel like water and dirt ! We towed a boat back from Thames Barrier to Putney last year due to water in the filter.
