Gozzard Reserve Fuel...

Just took possession of a 2000 Gozzard 37 and loving it. Lots of little mysteries being solved every time I turn around. Currently stumped on understanding how the two diesel tanks work. Just filled them both up. Any Gozzard owners out there familiar with small reserve tank operation? Is it automatic or is there a magic switch somewhere that I have yet to locate? Cheers!

Re: Gozzard Reserve Fuel...

Welcome!
Having owned two Gozzards (36 and 44) I will try to help.
Iím not familiar with the 36/37 having a reserve tank.
Thereís a bow tank in your case. Best to ask Gozzard. Theyíre very helpful.
Whatís the name of your boat?

Re: Gozzard Reserve Fuel...

Thanks! you are the first response to my very first post. special moment.


New boat name is Nostromo. Yes, I have been impressed with some info Mike Gozzard has already provided about the gel coat. Don't want to go to the well too many times though, and wanted to get into a forum generally anyway. Yup, 2-tanks, a little one and a big one. two gauges, etc. I am sure I will figure it out.


Wow...two Gozzards for you! Very cool. I really cannot believe I own this boat. It is really something else. I have gotten very familiar with the Gozzard website, and the "Specs" for each boat are pretty comprehensive as an pretty detailed overview. But it is not a full on operation manual. Is there such a thing?


Also...I assume your 44 at least had the bow thruster? Mine does...and it is pretty cool. Works great. Anyway, there is a big weird red button with no label on it, it is on the Port side under one of the lift up couches in the salon. Any idea what that is?


You still have a Gozzard? Thanks ronbo1!

The big red button is likely the power button for the windlass.

We had a 97 Gozzard 36 for 5 years then traded it in for an 02 G44 B MkII (forward cabin w/centreline berth) which we still have.
On the hard now in Glen Cove, LI, NY. Awaiting spring.

Have you joined Gozzard World Cruisers on FB. Itís a great place to ask questions.
And of course, Iíll be happy to answer any questions you might have.
