Re: THRU-HULL For my boat
A good quality bronze thruhull with a real bronze seacock (not a ball valve), from a reputable manufacturer like Groco or Perko would be my choice. Also keep in mind that if you have a cored hull, you must make sure that there is no core where the thruhull goes through the hull. If necessary, dig out the core around the hole and fill that space with epoxy putty so when you tighten the thruhull, you are doing it against a hard surface, not the soft care material of the hull.
