Fuel filter and polishing system...
Given enough time and a big enough hammer I could have built a fuel filter/polishing system. It would have worked AND it would have looked like cr&p. These things I know.
I have always lusted after the KTI Filter Boss fuel system. I met and spoke to Carole Keenan of KTI Systems at the Miami Boat Show. Both she and Andy could not have been more helpful and in the end I contract out the build to them.
Andy took my sad sketch and turned it into a working system. The end product is a work of art. I now have a system that can;
1. Polish three tanks.
2. Move fuel between tanks.
3. Supply the engine and generator.
4. Has a visual early warning system.
5. Has a sight glass to check if fuel is flowing.
6. Has a 43 GPH fuel pump.
7. Has parts that are not propriety and can be replaced by me at some time in the future.
