Help!! My Plastimo Offshore 75 has lost fluid and is bouncing all over the place. They seem to be like the proverbial 'hen's teeth' As suppliers I have tried have all the other configurations but not the dashboard mounting that I need for the Ribcraft dash.
Anybody know of one or where to find one, any assistance would be appreciated.

Refill it. You can put baby oil in it for a damped on or gin for a faster movement

So long as it's got a filler plug, big ship expensive ones do, not sure about Plastimos, they're a bit more throw away.

I did refill a spirit level once years ago with a coloured alcohol of some sort, can't remember what.

These days I just leave my level in the freezer every night, the steelwork goes in perfect 1st time every time

As he said. Should be a little rubber plug inside the casing
