Is my old thru-hull thru?

Heya,

1977 orion S&S 35 sloop.

I just removed a few thru-hulls to replace some rotten old seacocks. They are flush mount. Looking through the service yard catalogs, I can't find any that match my specs. The ones I removed look OK with just a little thread wear in the center. But, there is some red coloration. Can I re-use these?

Cheers,
Gil

I would leave em if they are not showing signs of trouble. Then again I am cheap. It would be cool to have marelon thru hulls though!

If they are bronze and show reddish or pinking, it usually means they are dezincifying...and will not be safe to re-use.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

That's what I was afraid of. Thanks dog. Do you by any chance know of a manufacturer that has other than standard sized flush mount thru-hulls?

I would have thought they might test on some of those rabid sailingdogs running around a bunch of marinas!

Hey Cam. Can we please leave my liberal claptrap references in the off topic list?

I tried Groco. No fit. My hull is already beveled, but my thru-hulls are um unique... The guy at the yard said I should go with mushroom heads and fill the void with sealant. Sounds daft to me. Whattaya more experienced persons think?
