Re: Drains, valves, and seacocks: weighing the alternatives

After further investigation, I'm not certain that my existing through-hulls are actually Marelon. They look more like regular nylon. Which pushes me towards replacing them with new Marelon through-hulls and seacocks (at least for the below waterline cockpit drains) at the next haul out. In the meantime, I'll just replace the hoses -- the existing ones just look like an accident waiting to happen.
