I have water in one tank (maybe holding 30 gallons of diesel). I can not find anyone who does fuel polishing/cleaning in St Martin. Can anyone suggest someone? With as many boats as are here... I can't be the only guy with water in a tank?
I recommend signing in to the morning VHF net run by Shrimpy's and asking your question there, you'll have a number of cruisers giving you advice and recommendations.
I can't recall the exact details, I think the net is on 14 at 7am but am not 100% certain. Alternately go to Shrimpys (by the French bridge, accessible via dinghy, right across from L'ile Marine, and ask him for suggestions.
I had a similar problem in St Martin and found a contractor who did a very good job in polishing the fuel. Unfortunately I am away presently and do not have the name or contact information. I recommend you contact Simpson Bay diesel on the Duch side they may be able to provide you with a contact or ask at the customer service desk at Budget Marine (again on the Duch side). They are very helpful.
Sailing together doubles the joy and half the pain
Mark - Thanks for the putty reference I am in the North Sound in the BVI right now waiting to clear out and head to St. Martin - I'll be seeing you again at Barnacle's or Lagoonies in a couple of days. My 18-hour slog upwind doesn't come close to your lengthy uphill battle from Florida; first shout is on me!
