With rising fuel prices, especially at the dock... Does anyone know if locking gas caps for boats are avilable? I use one on our truck and I'm concerned that I can't keep an eye on our boat, all the time. Just wondering...

Not nearly as fun as just putting the GAS cap on the pumpout fitting though.

Cliff,
I saw the cap you are refering to, question, looks like one size fits all?

It states this...."locking cap will fit all PERKO CHROMALEX® gas fills."

Most fuel fills are 1 1/2". Perko makes pretty much a 1 1/2" cap. Perko is also pretty much backlogged with this request...so if your order, go have a beer and relax for a while.

Thanks,
Looks much better than the link on Boat Fix, before I order, does boat fix carry this line?

I know many of you get upset at the mention of Worst Marine,,,but since I spend a couple days a week there now ( something to do retirement) they offer several types from full fills to just caps. I work at one of the largest, so our supply might be greater than the small stores, but they do have them.
