Through hull problem?

While searching for the raw water inlet for the head I found what looks like an ugly broken thing.Cant tell if its open or closed. Followed the hose that was connected to it and found it terminate in the bilge with a tool stuck into the hose ...and it was hoseclamped on...I've got pictures. Can any one tell if the seacock is open or closed.?.Looks like the handle is broken off
[IMG]another view[/IMG]
Hope the picture appears..if you click on the picture you get a larger view..
here is the other end..

So if the seacock is open the only thing keeping the boat afloat is the wrench handle stuck in the hose?[IMG]other end[/IMG]

So, can I/should I get rid of that valve ..boat is in the water now...I am afraid to take a wrench to it ...
any ideas?

looks open to me. you need to do away with it as soon as you can. for a stop gap what you could do is get some epoxy putty stick, the stuff that you nead together. mix up a nice glob of it and dive under the boat and stuff the thru hull solid, this will give you a little more security than the wrench handle, but leave it too.

Thanks scottyt...think I'll wait until it gets over 40 degrees..

bty..here is a picture of my raw water input for my engine.
raw engine water
..I believe in 1974 gate valves were "in"... It works fine.. do you think I should replace with a real seacock (ball valve?)..
This is all new to me..had the boat 2 weeks now..A lot to learn

Sealing that is a good idea. So is getting the wires out of the bilge. As for replacing the seacocks, read Maine Sail's excellent article on how to do it.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

If you look at the first picture the wire is the same color - apparently a bonding wire.

Did you get a survey? If so it must be interesting.

Yikes. You should find the previous owner and egg his house.

Interesting that the P.O. was more concerned about bonding than he was about keeping the boat afloat.

never had a survey..My friend bought the boat 10 years ago...Invited me to sail with him a couple of years ago..did ..loved it..he died last month and left it to me...It was a fresh water boat in Michican until 1999..so I dont know who did what...doesnt matter anymore..Its all about what to do now, I figure

Sorry about your friend.
I would concentrate of the safety related items first, seacocks and hoses first as they can sink you. Propane system if there is one. Then engine and its associated hardware. Electrical which may be original or worse from previous owners and sheer age. Then the rig. As far as the bonding wires they are probably not in good shape but bonding isn't necessary. Make sure your shaft zinc is in good shape or renewed. Good luck.
