Deck Filler

Hi

I have lost the cap off the deck filler on my Orana. Does anybody know where FP sources these.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Deck Filler

One of two plastic fuel caps of a friend's boat broke, allowing water in a fuel tank. Thus, one of his two fuel tanks was fouled, and the engine quit. Fortunately, he had a second engine fueled from a second tank.

He replaced both plastic caps with stainless steel ones.

I have been looking for these in Australia but cant find anyone who has them as I want to put in a second water filler. I have emailed a number of suppliers but nothing. I may have to put together another OS order.

Re: Deck Filler

I believe the Amiot and Plastimo are the same units. I say this a Amiot was purchase by Goiot who is somehow related to Plastimo as they had the same importer in the US.

Nod is going to France on weekend. He is going to send one back. Suggest you contact MH and get them to send more.

The Plastimo ones are an exact match. I got them from a UK Chandlers. If you get stuck can post them to you when I go back to my cat in June. Have you worked out how to determine water level in stbd tank when you separate them? Didn't look like you can get to the stbd water tank to use that US blackwater tank system you bought?

Re: Deck Filler

I understand I can pull the shelf unit out of the forward port berth and get to it that way. May be interesting. I'll take photos when I do. I have asked Nod to bring me back one from France but thanks for the offer.

I had thought of using their tank level system as it seems to work well.

I have to go to the UK in August to visit the boss's mother so if Nod has a problem getting one I'll get one there myself. Good excuse to get out and go shopping.

yes good access to port water tank from behind the book shelf but the gauge is already on that one so you will need to somehow add gauge to stbd tank. Let me know if you find a way.
When I installed additional fill point I put too big a u bend in the filler hose so it creates an air block. Should have drilled hole through bulkhead at same level as stbd tank to stop problem. Will have to revise it.
BTW am tempted to seal the holes on both sides of anchor locker to prevent water ingress in prolonged bad weather / heavy seas. They connect with bilges in hulls but rather prevent it getting in in first place.

Re: Deck Filler

Sorry I misunderstood. Yes getting to the Starboard tank could be interesting. I'll have to pull out the go-go gadget arms with multiply elbows. I will have a look on the weekend.
