Newbie question regarding Seacocks
So... My Cape Dory manual specifies that all seacocks should be closed if the boat is to be left alone overnight or longer. The surveyor who showed me around the boat, and knowing I was new to larger boats, pointed out the scupper drain seacocks, noted that they were tie-wrapped open by the previous owner, and mentioned that these must stay open. This is contrary to the manual.
