The requirements for the fuel system aboard gasoline powered inboard boats are many. Some of these requirements may be specifically applied, but many are dependent on other requirements. Some of the requirements must be complied with only if certain installation conditions are selected or if certain types of fuel system products or components are used. This many faceted approach can easily lead to confusion. Typically, regulations are written in concise terms, the words and arrangement chosen to be enforceable and in some cases to be legally interpreted. This format prohibits the inclusion of explanations, recommendations and easily detectable alternate solutions. A regulation provides an outline which requires a great deal of further information, interpretation, explanation, clarification and some helpful hints to provide a good understanding necessary for compliance with its intent. This fuel system compliance guideline attempts to fulfill the needs of the average boatbuilder in achieving compliance with these regulations. It explains, interprets, clarifies, discusses alternates, diagrams, tabulates, makes some recommendations and in general complements the regulations to improve the boat builder's understanding of the requirements.
