Tru Design Seacocks
 
I am considering installing 4 new Seacocks on my 89 Catalina 30. I like the design of the Tru Design with the collars.
Has anyone installed them or have any opinions of them?

Did you use the model with collars - if so did they sit flush against the inside of hull without build up?

I've had them for 5 years and the have been great. Mine don't have the collars, they came out after I had finished the install.
However, my valves are in confined areas with no big heavy items to hit them. If I had to do it now I'd use the collars for peace of mind. You know, just in case the gold bars need to be stowed there.:grin
What I like about them is no worry about corrosion and, unlike the marelon one I had, they have never been stuck or even difficult to operate.

Maybe i look at seacocks and thru hulls similar to battery connection....nothing potentially bad gets near them.

Yeah...gold bars stowed in safe places...:)

Thanks for the info regarding tru design. How difficult was it to remove the old ones?
Mine look like they're going to put up a fight because of their condition and location. Any "tricks" for removal and/or tools that would make the job easier?
