Re: Closing seacocks

We always close the seacocks when we leave the boat. We have 4: engine water, galley sink, head sink, and toilet flush water. The toilet one is always closed now, a good thing, because it would be a slight pain to do every time.

I would turn around and go back to the boat if it occurred to me that I'd forgotten--I've seen a sunken sailboat in a slip--sad and scary.
