Gareth E Posted May 17, 2017 Report Share Posted May 17, 2017 I was chatting to another boater today, we got onto the BSS scheme, my test is due shortly. He told me that I'd fail because the fuel filter on my engine, a Vetus, has a plastic bolt on the bottom of it, designed to be unscrewed to release any water. This should be metal apparently, plastic is unacceptable. Does anyone know if this is true? If so, I bought the filter from a large internet seller a couple of years ago. Why would they sell an item that's obviously for a boat when fitting it will make it fail a test? Should I get on to the supplier and tell them they should stop selling them, and ask them to send me something that will enable my boat to pass the test? Any other thoughts?
