My '78 Pearson
has two of these tapered seacocks as cockpit
drains. One on each side of the engine
. They haven't been cycled in ages I'm sure and show some green corrosion
The handle is different from the Spartan's illustrated in Maine sails
tutorial. They are more like a wrench shape. But I feel sure they are original.
I have been afraid to try to cycle them so far.
If I knew how to service
them in the water I would, as they are currently open all the time. As is, they serve no purpose, so I'd like to fix them.
I don't understand how they can be serviced in the water, unless one simply takes them apart and plugs the lower part of the body with something. Is that the case?
