This happened on my Ericson 28 which had been sitting for a while prior to me buying it. After much rodding to no effect I donned my scuba mask and went underneath with a long screwdriver and picked some very interesting sealife out of the thru-hulls. After that, all now drains nicely! As for sea-cocks on cockipt drains, I questioned this when I bought the boat and my research showed that they are not such a good idea as the cockpit always needs to be able to drain rain and seawater. If you think about it, why would you ever want to close these off?
