Deck fills (caps only)
« on: August 07, 2007, 10:50:50 AM »

Hull 474...need all 4 (2 water, 1 fuel, 1 waste) caps.  Satisfied with the fills but after 20 yrs the caps have given up the ghost.  Anyone have a source for caps that will fit, are marked as to the type of fill and can use a winch handle to secure? 
Catalina quotes around $29.00- which seems a bit excessive.
Thanks

David : You still need to pay the exorbitant prices to Catalina Direct for the water and waste caps.

However, bite the bullet and change out you fuel cap/filler to stainless - then you won't ever have a cracked cap to let water into your diesel tank! 
There have been numerous articles on the cracked fuel cap problem.   :thumb:
