  1. Spent the day off Rochester with capt Bruce of Hooked Up charters as our boat isnt easily trailerable.

    Never met the man before today and he over delivered in everything, great boat and equipment, a metric ****ton of knowledge on the fisherie and  able to take and throw BS with hillbillies like us. We rebooked for the fall b4 heading south. A damn fine time with a good captain. Almost forgot had a nice mix of fish, some released and some released in the smoker

     Would a check valve work on the main gas line? I thought it might be easier than having to go into the bilge to turn off the fuel every time. I would keep the shut off valve but have the check valve closer to the t fitting.

    yes.use a 3 way valve be sure to doub!e clamp  and if its under the floor be sure to use uscg approved inboard fuel line
