Wilcox and Crittenden deck fill problem
Our boat has Wilcox and Crittenden deck fills that consist of an aluminum deck fitting with a black plastic screw in plug. One of our diesel fills has seized. I broke the plastic trying to get it open and had to repair it with epoxy. I have tried PB Blaster without success.
The problem is that we are sitting in Suva harbour in Fiji and there is no convenient marine store - especially with imperial-sized fittings. I suspect we can survive until we get to Brisbane in early September but does anyone have a bright idea for getting this plug loose?
Back in the water in Grenada - with new main and #2 and cockpit canvas (Santa came early). Will spend the winter and early spring in the Caribbean and then head to Bermuda and the northeast US. Still trying to decide if we will bring the boat to Canada, either in 2015 or 2016.
