This is my first post on this forum. I am in my early 30's, I have been sailing for over 10 years cruising and racing in the waters of the channel islands. I have decided to purchase my first sailing boat.
I have yet to purchase I am hoping for some comments on the image below from a boat I am considering.
It's located inbetween the keel and prop roughly under the engine. It seems rather small for a seacock and there is an obvious dampness. The boat sits on a cradle and whilst all other seacocks are dry this one still weeps some 3hours + after the tide. I am still pre-survery but do you have any suggestions what this is?
