We are new to sailing, recently purchased a 1975 Dufour
24 as our beginner learn to sail boat
. Great condition, new sails
, the prior owner (couple years) didn't know about the Thru Hull
Got it hauled out, and due to the virus issue wasn't able to get it to where I could do the work
. (After pressure washing
, the bottom looked great, zero blisters)
New bottom paint
has been done and thru hull/ seacock is going to be replaced.
When they hauled and pressure washed it, the (only) thru hull
, which is unused currently. I believe this may have been for the sink drain, but it's currently not connected.
But I have never seen a thru hull
with a "Flow Diverter" not sure what you call it. But it's going to require cutting it out to remove the old thru hull
. Sorry crappy picture, I took a video after they pressure washed it and had to take a paused picture of the video.
Any ideas on this V-shaped flange over the outside of the thru-hull, and any special replacement issues? I have never seen one like this.
Also attached the inside view, old gate valve, maybe original. Don't know so that why they are both getting replaced.
