Re: Closing seacocks

I closed all 7 every time I left the boat if I wanted peace of mind ashore. I replaced the cockpit drain thru-hulls, seacocks and hoses when I bought the boat knowing that they would always remain open. I usually closed the engine, head intake & discharge if not being used when ON the boat. Why not? The alternative could really suck.
