well my ships headed out for 3 days when i get back i need to repare this drane. in the vid you can see its 1 pece of pipe the bottom of the cockpit and the dranes in the bottom of the boat are off set about 6 inches. its in the far back so hard to axces. just looking fore a easy but strong temp fix. the sea cock is not beyond use its just in the open pozition so corked for safty resons.

what i have at had is a home depo and 2 very small power boat shops on ilsand.

West marine is pretty good about international shipping - Guam should be good. If you are navy there may be an angle there too...

Thaks for asking Chief. Shadow....Are you using a VRS voice activated word program? If so which one so I will avoid it.

On another note. With all the improvements you should be able to get a good price on your boat when your tour is over in Gaum. Fixing up boats is a large part of the fun. While in Japan you can also pick up what you need . There are several good marine groups like West on a smaller scale in Japan.

One can normally edit a voice activated system. "Me thinks something is wrong"

I hope for an answer that embarases me for my previous post. I fear not.

Make sure they are seacocks and not ball valves screwed onto a thru hull.

One piece unit.....They are more expensive....but it is a hole in the boat y'know

Most boats in Uk use a seperate thru hull and a ball valve. A very few use a Blake valve. Nobody really has a problem with either of these. Material is more important. I do not like the gunmetal versions. bronze is MUCH better (but lots more money)

The one thing not to have is a gate valve. These have no business in a boat.

thanks for all the advice. since ive stoped the boat frome sinking for the moment im going to pull my tools and equipment out till i can kick the owner in the ass about closing this dele.

at the moment the marina has 2 spots on the hard there both filld, looks like 1 is not going aneywhare for a while, the other i have no idea so it may be a while before i can get hauled out.

also going to be in japan till mid october.

when i get back hopefully i will have closed the dele.
il start on tuning up the mast and resceling the deck and painting it.
by then maby there will be a spot on the land for the boat.

I'm definitely with Chief. We replaced the combined valve/through hull with separete thru hull and inline valves.

By the time you need to replace the valve it requires grinding the thru hull out. With a separate thru hull you have a chance of changing just the valve and in a pinch you could do it in the water.

the single peces seem to be hard to find. seems safer to beable to change the valve if the sea-cock is ok.

the dranes for the cock pit drane out below the watterline. there are 2 dranes each hase a seperate thrue hull. this common, or is there a better whay to run these dranes?

Normally, cockpit drains come out just above the waterline. In the colder climates underwater drains are known for sinking boats because the hose freezes, breaks and allows water to come in when it thaws out.

In the tropics, probably not a problem. Just make sure if the hose clamps are below the waterline that they are in good shape.
