Re: Thru hull/seacock service

Those are Perko Ball Valve type. Hard to say what the condition is with Ball valves, but Perkos were good valves. My CT44 had big tapered plug type...and lots of them! Maybe yours have been replacecd in the past...?

Re: Thru hull/seacock service

Yep...I think the 44 had 12! I loved that boat. Great design...it was the Yves Marie Tanton design 44 cutter (and 43 cat ketch..same hull) had like a 39 water line and canoe stern. Great interior design. That frenchman knew what he was doing.. Actually, the damn thing really was a canoe if you looked at it out of water! 1.25 thick glass at the hull keel interface too! 4" x 2.5" stringers ~full length of hull. Only boat I ever made money on when I sold it!
