Default Water Separating Fuel Filter

Looking high and low for something I believe does not exist. My 2003 SR1750, carb version, does not seem to have a filtering system that uses a water separating filter. Should I look into updating this boat with something new or is the filter in the carb going to serve me well in this age of Ethanol based fuels? Suggestions.....

well...as I understand it....your filters are plenty capable of giving you clean gas..however...you might concider one of those inline canister filters........splice the fuel line and add the inline filter .....should be more than enough to protect the engine..however..if your getting water in the tank..then pour some of the heet or fuel water scavanger chemical that is mainly designed to suspend the water and carry it thru the carb and burned in the cylinder...

Default Fuel Filter Issues, and other stuff...

Thanks for the tip.
Any suggestions where one might acquire the engine block drain hoses for this same 3.0L Mercury. One end of the hose at the top has rusted and worn.
Thanks in advance for your always great solutions and advice.
Rob
