Re: What sort of valve is this?

The handle operates smoothly, and comes to a "stop" at each end as opposed to just getting stiffer, which would suggest it is operating as designed. When it's closed, water doesn't pass through it. When it's open, water passes through it (I tested it when she was hauled out). Again that would suggest to me it is operating as designed.

I just wonder why the surveyor stated "the gate valve on the sink is seized and should be replaced", and thus of course the insurance company are now all "have you replaced the seized gate valve on the galley sink" because of course a surveyor couldn't be wrong about anything could they?

I would rather see a flanged seacock but it sounds like your valve is working. Just tell the insurance people it isn't frozen now.

Gate. We had a couple of them on our C&C also . We replaced with flanged ball valves eventually.

Re: What sort of valve is this?

Not sure of the right technical term here, but does the drainage/service nut open easily ? Or is that what your surveyor meant seized ?

Maybe surveyor never saw one before & tried to 'turn' the valve, get him back for a live demonstration so he can advise insurer he made a mistake. Like you did, he could have asked someone.

Re: What sort of valve is this?

I can't imagine the surveyor tried to open a drain/service nut while the boat was in the water. Anyway, I emailed the insurance broker to advise that the valve is not seized and is functioning normally so I guess I will see what they say.
