My Racors are all but inaccessible in this 30-foot boat. Those well lighted or flashligghted bowls look nice, but would not translate here. No metal bowls or pails (best idea, I think) for me.

I ran a pair of FL120s for a few decades in a 42-foot waterline boat, and I believe that at 1300-plus RPMs the engines in a Defever 49 are being babied too much. I would think 1600-plus RPM would...
