Ranger 33 Through Hull Replacement

Hello,

We are the proud new owners of a Ranger 33. One of the things the surveyor recommended was replacing all of the old gate valves on the through hulls. I assume that the best thing to do here is replace the through hull and seacock?

I also read somewhere that combining through hulls for multiple functions is a good idea to reduce the number (i.e. combining the sea water intake for the engine with the sea water intake for the sink). Has anyone done this on the Ranger, or is this a bad idea?

Thanks in advance,
Jeremy
