Re: Clean thru-hull from the inside?

Yeah, it is the long lever that makes this dangerous. But if this is a sea cock that is normally left open, you'd better install a ball valve in the top of the tee.

I know this guy! He's the same one that scraped off my knotmeter impeller along with the barnacle growth back in the 1980's.
