Allan & Rina Alexopulos
Allan asked for a customized unit with the filters mounted to the left of the FilterBOSS. This made it
easier to change the filters when needed.
S/V Far Niente
Installed on a hinged door with flexible fuel line for easy access to filters. Lots of fuel line but with
the FilterBOSS pre-departure check, he can be sure he is air-leak free!
S/V Madeline Rose
Stu loved our system so much that he volunteered to sell the FilterBOSS at the Oakland 07 show!
Thanks for the long lunch break Stu!
Bob Bitchin (Lost Soul)
Bob installed the FilterBOSS AND the FuelBOSS! A tidy helm and of course you gotta have those fuel manifolds!
He has asked Andy to help design the fuel system with the FilterBOSS for his new Shannon boat as well.
Here is the first design for a DUAL FILTERBOSS SYSTEM two engines, two tanks, but integrated so you can utilize both tanks for either engine as well as polish from one tank and back or from one to the other tank. Lots of manifolds, but well laid out and labeled. Plus Bob's a smart guy (He's got Jody) and is good with this stuff!
This is the new unit using the FILTERBOSS COMMANDER UNITS. Again the freedom to choose the configuration Bob wants when running motors or polishing fuel. Each manifold is clearly labeled for ease of use.
And it takes less space!
Installed on S/V Bremer Speck, a 1989 Nauticat 40

Jon and Arline Libby
One of the first things Jon and I agreed on was that we would put out the cash and buy our new boat the Filter Boss. One of the worst things for me is to be at the helm on a wonderful day or down right miserable day (which for Jon this would still be a great day- on the boat) and have the engine quit and find a clogged filter, which then you have to deal with it. We felt that was the most important issue with a boat. Our engine has very few miles on it and most problems with diesel engines end up being fuel, fuel, or fuel. The Previous owner Rick (Boat is still at his dock) was kind enough to take the old Diesel fuel out for us and clean the inside out, this way we can install the FilterBoss and start with a clean tank all at the same time. Here is a photo of the dirty fuel.
Jon went down to Connecticut for the weekend to install it and get some other things done on the boat.

Jonís weekend at the boat was very productive. Jon and Rick managed to install the FilterBoss and before leaving was able to run the engine, he was very pleased with how smooth it was to install it and really likes the unit. If you would like any info about it just email him and he will be glad to answer any questions you have.

Installed on a moveable mounting board for access behind the FilterBOSS!
Nice to have all that room, what a clean and clear install!
I wanted to send you a few pictures of s/v Cutthroat and the installation of
her new Heart, Your FilterBoss System.
We are in Oahu and setting sail for Sitka, Alaska o/a 1 June. We definitely
wanted this system installed before we hit the rough waters around here
again. We have tested the system at the dock and it is great and will test
drive the system at sea this next week prior to the voyage to Alaska, inside
passage and to San Diego. That is our plan for the rest of the year.
You folks, both of you, have been so responsive to my questions, whenever I

"I am so happy with my FilterBOSS that my wife
is a little jealous. I can sometimes be found in the engine room sipping wine, admiring my filter system!"
