Re: How do these seacocks look?
1) As capta said, those aren't seacocks; in fact, they don't even look like they're bronze. They need to be replaced with either real seacocks, or marine ball valves (the latter being more common these days).
2) Your "thru-hull" also looks like a glassed-in pipe nipple; a common flaw (and potential disaster) in Catalinas, and many other boats of that vintage. That should also be replaced with a proper thru-hull.
3) Unless the other thru-hulls and seacocks on the boat have been replaced they are undoubtedly just as bad. I would replace the lot.
