[Diy_efi] boat fuel pump

Pumps for boat applications have to be rated for marine use. If you
happen to get inspected and don't have rated parts, you'll get a ticket
and be taken off the water. It should be no big deal to get a 15psi
marine pump and a regulator to use it with a carb for the time being.
Spend the money once for a good pump and you'll be that far ahead when
you convert. Remember, we are talking TBI here, not MPEFI with its 80
psi pumps.
