Remember that the cap is also the vent for the tank, so blowing through it you may be hearing the air going through the vent...
I see the cap has a vent in it, it seems to let air in easier than out. I'm not sure if it was originally a one way check valve or not.

So I guess I'm going to have to assume the o-ring is sealing.

Thanks, Steve

I hope someone can take a pic of a nice Coast Guard Capacity Sticker. I'd like to try and get one reprinted for the boat, as you can see it's in bad shape.



If possible please take it as square to the sticker as possible. If no one has the same boat and sticker, I can see if they can edit the persons and weight.

Thanks, Steve

I came home with a 1 5/8" ID x 1 7/8" OD x 1/8" Diameter o-ring. Seems like a good fit to me.

I called the marine manufacturers association - they never called me back. These decals are silk screened so one off's would not be cheap. A sign shop with a UV with white printer might be able to pull these off. Getting a new machine next week - with white in my office may be able to pull them off - stand by.

Someone figured out how to get replacements at one point in time - I don't remember if they got them from the MMA or from Mastercraft or from a one-off printer. It's on a thread here somewhere...

I remember seeing that post. The only problem was each sticker was something like $25.

If you guys find that thread I would appreiciate it. I did some searching on them but did not find anything that sounded like it worked out.

Thanks, Steve
