Removing the Yanmar 3GM fuel filter

Long time lurker and first time poster. I have a 1991 C&C 34+ with the Yanmar 3GM30 and a Racor fuel filter. I changed all my fuel filters last year and also changed the copper washers out for the Isuzu rubber type washers and also got rid of the rigid fuel line. After suffering though an extended bout of trying to find the air leak after all this the engine runs great but I have a fuel leak at the Yanmar fuel filter. Has anyone replaced this fuel filter and replace it with something similar and mounted in a place that is a little more accessible? Is it necessary to have a fuel filter after the fuel pump?
