Re: "Seacock" vs. "ballcock" or "ball valve?"

It's bad enough on a boat but trying to rename the roosters on the farm was pretty bad but to try to get them to quit crowing was darned near impossible.

Anyways, any valve with a quick turnoff is a "****" Seacock, Gascock, etc.

Ball is one type. vanes and Tapered plugs are others.

I wonder how long before we can't screw anything to the deck. Or tell which way the wind is blowing?

camaraderie New, computer profanity filter does not recognize some compound words if a banned word is contained within. Pls. bear with us while we make adjustments. There will probably be some other words similarly affected that are OK in compound use but not ok as stand alone words. Please drop me a PM if you find a thread/post so affected so that we may tweak the filter.
