How to close discontinued thru hulls.
I am considering a sail boat that no longer has an inboard and will be inspecting it this week. Without the inboard there are three holes in the hull that will no longer be used; prop shaft hole, cooling water intake, and cooling water discharge.
When I looked at the boat the first time I didn't pay much attention to these things but the intake does have a gate valve on the thru hull.
How should these openings be handled?
