Fueling Procedures

Stolen Boats Canada has released a list of safe fueling procedures. Please find them below.

1. Moor your boat securely to prevent spillage.
2. Shut off all engines.
3. Send all guests ashore.
4. Extinguish all open flames.
5. Do not smoke while refueling.
6. Turn off electrical switches, power supplies and avoid using electrical devices such as portable radios.
7. Close all windows, portholes, hatches and cabin doors.
8. Portable tanks must come ashore before refueling.
9. Verify that you have the correct fuel nozzle and you are filling the correct deck fill prior to dispensing fuel.
10. Ensure the fuel nozzle fits into the deck fitting – if it is too big, ask to be moved to a lower-speed dispenser.
11. Know your fuel system – some marine fuel dispensers are fast and may exceed your boat’s capacity – if unsure, use
the slower-speed dispenser (if available).
12. Ground the nozzle against the filler pipe.
13. Know the capacity of the fuel tank. Do not overfill it. You have a duty to prevent spillage of fuel into the hull or water
14. Wipe up spillage and properly dispose of the cloth or towel used.
15. Operate the engine compartment blower for at least four minutes immediately before starting the gasoline engine.
16. Check for vapours from the engine compartment before starting up the engine.
