    I'm guessing ordering a new thermostat is not ideal where you are located, and that's why you want to salvage it??
    Few ideas.... try holding a cloth or rag soaked in vinegar up to the exposed part. It might loosen the aluminum oxide a little, but it will take time. Feed a small wire/hook into the bleed-hole as to tug/pull on it rather than prying it from the edges.

    I have 320 hours of brackish water use- should I replace mine?

    Seabrook... I would think about changing the stat out because From www.boatingABC.com "" 100 hours on a boat *may* be equivalent to 12,000 miles on a car from that standpoint. ""

    Also a 80.00 part could cost you so much more, I hate to see you have a problem out on the water or have a motor go bad on you..... Take Care Hope you all are doing well.
