Outstanding fill cap design - but where?

Does anyone know where I might find these fill caps(picture)? Preferably in
stainless however plated is ok too.

What an outstanding design. Covers the ugly fill top and opens with the winch
handle for real opening power and reliability.

I have found plastic caps on Catalina Direct, but they want $18 each plus shipping, for plastic.

The ones I have on now are those plastic ones and they're toast.

If anyone knows who\where I might find fill caps like this, please let me know.

Vetus makes them. You'd need to contact them to find a distributor.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Does anyone seriously think that LED will last in that sun-exposed and seawater wet environment?

And it's $300.

Not I.

I prefer keyless deckfill caps, like this one:

If you have the fill cap in a corner of the cockpit floor or similar than the winch handle version will not be great...but if it is up on the moulded combing like mine, it could be perfect...providing some guest does not think it is something they need to "adjust" while they already have the winch handle in their hand and as we are sailing along. "I sheeted in the headsail, and I tightened up that other thing a couple of turns as well" "Other thing???"

Sasha-

LOL... I can see that happening... that could be bad... especially, if the crew is larger and stronger than you and decides to tighten it up just a bit. With a 10" winch handle, you could probably screw things up pretty badly.

Caps only

Yes, the ones in the Vetus catalog. Perfect.

Caps only, not the fills. And must cover the entire fill, not inset. Now I just need to figure out if they will fit a Capri 26 fills (same as 270 fills).

I have the silly plastic ones (picture) and need stainless.

Thanks for the info.

Umm.. they have them in stainless on page 96 or so.

Correction: Page 91 mentions them in SS.

Yes, page 91. That's what I said, perfect. Just have to fit them.
Thanks again, I had the roughest time finding these, and I looked everywhere.
