Re: tapered seacocks

The thinking was the bolts keep the inside from turning on it's backing plate while the out side part screwed into the valve body. A big pipe wrench does the same job and FG is so tough, no problem.

I daresay the vast majority of hull valves are mounted that way - I rarely see them bolted on.

That's how the Spartan seacocks on my Morris were originally installed - no bolts, just
the mushroom threaded on.

Most builders don't seem to have bothered with the bolts. The mushroom goes in from the outside, and the seacock is threaded onto it. So the mushroom and seacock flange are sandwiching the hull. It's pretty strong even without the mounting bolts.
