Blew

Speakeasy's yard neighbor is names Blew--a fitting name for a
sailboat. Blews skipper, Bruce, is a clever man and a good person for
a novice boat owner to know. I was having difficulty finding the fuel
shutoff valve and watched Bruce hunt it down like a hound on the scent
of a great prize.

The fuel line appears to vanish just aft of the primary filter. At
first I thought the tank should be where the water tank is. Bruce
discovered this too, but didn't throw up his hands and quit as I did. Instead,
he deduced that the line must go aft even further. He went on deck and jump in the port quarter lazzerette, which is very deep. At the bottom, he found the fuel tank and nearby he found the shutoff.
