Marine Fuel Tanks, Pumps and Filter

They say that water and fuel don't mix.
Well, unfortunately, they might mix way too easily but water does a terrible job at combustion to say the least.
When you are on the open water, you are bound to get some water into your fuel system, not to mention dirt, debris, sludge, and just about any other substance that has it out for your motor.
Unlike breaking down on the side of the road, a clogged or contaminated fuel system on the water means either having to swim home or be lucky enough for someone to tow you in.
This is known as the main culprit of having a bad day out on the lake.

Since you are dealing with such an unstable environment as open water, you are still facing the same mechanical issues as you would be on dry land and you are constantly surrounded by it.
Getting some water in your marine fuel lines or tank is expected to happen when you have poorly maintained fuel system.
This can lead to accelerated corrosion, which can create clogs, line breaks, or seized motors.
Even worse, damaged boat fuel lines and components can lead to fire, in which case you will really be up the creek without a paddle.

Being stranded on the water after a marine fuel system failure is serious business.
You can be at risk for collisions, being the only thing on the water not moving, your watercraft can become swamped by waves or wakes, or you can be at the mercy of the currents, which can pull your craft further out to sea or downriver.
Having a way to power your watercraft is essential, and unfortunately, stowing away a few oars just isn't as practical as you might thing.
When it comes to fuel systems on a boat, an ounce of prevention is worth a ton of cure.
