Re: Closing seacocks

Yes if leaving the boat for a period of time (in days). No when Living aboard/cruising. Only exception is when anchored for a period of time, we close main and sometimes generator.

I am a big proponent of exercising your seacocks. I am also of the mind that they should stay closed if you are leaving the boat for the weekend or week or something similar. But that is just me.

Lets see: 8 sea cocks. Only 8 because I intentionally plumbed to minimize holes in the boat/sea cocks.
