  1. Stuck Thru Hull Valve - Help Wanted!

    Gear & Maintenance
    Hi Guys, Does anyone have nay tips for loosening a stuck valve? Its the cockpit drain valve. Looks to be bronze. She is in a cold river now so I do not wish to try and plug it from outside. Is there any other way? Heat? also does anyone know if it can be taken apart somehow? Any and all tips...
