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?
In South Africa doing lots of boat stuff. Departure north from Cape Town around December 15th. Arrival in the Caribbean around the beginning of February, after 5300 miles or so.
