If your concern is for the quality of the fuel in your tanks, then have your fuel "polished". There are outfits that travel to your boat with a mega polishing machine and clean your fuel. I've never had it done that way. I built my own fuel polisher using knock-off Raycor water separating filters and a cheap fuel pump. I bought the three filters off eBay for about $25 a piece, and a cheap 12v fuel pump for maybe $12. Screw pieces to a board, attach appropriate fuel lines and pump away. I get dirt from my diesel fuel in the filter. I was looking for water but none found.

If you're worried about your fuel quality, why not just have your fuel polished? There are outfits that come to your boat with a big machine. Or you can just build yourself a polisher using filters and a cheap pump if so inclined.
