Default Water in Fuel

Took out the boat yesterday for a nice afternoon and 10 minutes in my starboard engine shut down with no restart and then the generator shut down. After digging around looking for issues in the engine compartment. Water was full in seperator. I thought to myself this can't be; I had Seafoam in each tank and everything ran great 2 weeks ago. "Check the fuel cap" dang it! Open 1 full twist. We have had record rains lately in West Tn. and I have washed it at least twice.

Guess I'll attempt pumping out the tank tomorrow and ordering new filters. I hate simple but costly mistakes!!!

Pumped off 60 gallons of fuel yesterday, removed lines from water seperator to drain, changed all filters and got rid of the screen at carb base. Put in some Seafoam & 10 gallons fuel and she fired up after a couple of turns.

I was so relieved!
