Just as insurance I would purchase new hoses for the engine , and carry them aboard , install after you get home.


Proper, not auto hose clamps too.

Were the fuel tanks stored full? If no you can expect water from condensation, a lot of water. Closely monitor your Racors underway.

Update. We made the 500 some mile journey a few weeks ago. Burned about 400 gallons of diesel over 6 days.

The final leg we had the tanks down to about 20-30 gallons of 300. No issues.

Today I changed the racors and secondary Yanmar filter. Racors were maybe a tiny bit dirty. Bowl spotless. I drained all diesel from the filters into a container, it sat for a few hours. No water I could see at all.

Heated storage and exceptional maintenance by the former owner probably was a big factor.

Thanks!

Ours sat for 10 years with tanks half full prior to us buying her.

Zero water in tanks
Zero stabiliser used.
Zero issues
