    Hi Bloodhound, Steve Bryant here out of OCBC OKC, OK.
    I am curious about your comments from a couple of years ago concerning your attempt to build a homemade fuel polisher.
    I want to build one also but haven't settled upon a pump yet. I know that “Racor” has a P3 Series device which is an all in one "pump/filter/water separator" for about $350.00. It is their answer to the “Parker” fuel polishing system.
    My question to you is do you know of a 12 volt fuel pump that would be capable of taking diesel from a tank, putting it through a filter and water separator and back into the tank again?
    What about the use of a truck or automobile diesel fuel pump?

    Hi - I saw your post about the Lazy Mate system. I had planned to install one, as my neighbor had a Catalina with Lazy Mate and loved it. However, I had to leave on my cruise south (Seattle to Mexico, so far) before installing it. I'm looking online, and there isn't a lot of info, but I'm seeing things about stopper balls and elastic chord. I'm curious how you made yours, can it be as simple as rings over your topping lift and some short of light line attached to the them and the Leach? We started playing with putting one a while back but had issues with the sail cover. I'm having a new sail cover made with room to accommodate the rings stacking up on the topping lift, so I'm ready to try again. Any detailed description of your system would be most appreciated!
