This Vintage Crosby Striper was in need of updating fuel supply and
return lines for Westerbeke 100 HP engine. Entire system was inspected
to determine extent of overhaul.
The fuel tanks were
left in place and 8" deck plates added for access to fuel shut
All lines were removed
and replaced with USCG approved flexible hose to supply a Racor
10 micron water separating fuel filter.
Flow control valves
were installed to direct tank withdrawal/return.
clearly identify valve positions were custom fabricated to assure
ease of operation.
This upgrade added future value to the vessell, compliance with
current fire/insurance regulations, and improves reliability.

Six hours later the boat
had been purged of all water and after 4 oil changes was running again.
Our fast response to the sinking allowed us to save the engine and related
