seacocks

Does anyone know if the US 25 has seacocks? I cannot see any holes in the bottom.--the only thing i can see that it would need one for is the sink??? It has an outboard and a porta potti---Does have a self bailing cockpit I think. In the pictures You may be able to see two holes---for the cockpit and bilge??? or sink??? not sure. Is there some way of checking to make sure these are functioning ok before splashing the boat??

Re: seacocks

Find the holes in the hull- walk around the boat. Note where they are and go inside and find what is hooked up to them. If you want to know where your drains go, pour some food colored water in anything that should drain and see where it comes out.

Re: seacocks

Katie, do you have a picture of the stern? Cockpit? You have a very simple boat so chances are you only have one thru hull for the sink. If there are no openings through the transom for the cockpit to drain, then the cockpit drains most likely share the sink thru-hull.

Re: seacocks

pour water in the sink see where it goes, pour water in the cockpit, see where that goes, it should have a self bailing cockpit.

Re: seacocks

I will post a picture of the stern and cockpit as soon as I am able to get the US 25 hauled and cockpit cleaned out of leaves. It is currently two hours away. Thanks for all who have replied. I really appreciate the input.
