Re: Winch Handle-Type Deck Fills - Where to Buy?
I ignored this at first because I thought someone might have an actual answer but as no one replied I’ll tell you what I know.
These are much more common in Europe. The star type fills on Beneteau, Jeanneau etc. are made by Amiot. You can get replacement caps but I think you will find that they are metric thread and only fit Amiot fills. Vetus, Plastimo and several others also make star cap fills but I suspect you will find the same thing. Catalina Direct has color coded caps in plastic that work with the fills that were used on some Catalinas but I have no idea if they would work for you – might be worth a phone call. BTW stainless fills with color coded plastic caps seems to be the trend and in the U.K. at least, the usually term is “deck filler” – might help in a search.
Hope that’s of some help – Good luck.
