The ones with the base are made to bolt through the hull (or at least through a backing plate), in addition to threading on to the thru-hull fitting. The ones without the base just screw on to the thru-hull. The former method is usually more robust, but most small boats use some form of the latter method.

Yes I think better to replace them, they are there from previous owner. The boat was brought in France and they have bad habit of using brass valves instead proper seacocks. Anyway, it is 22ft boat, so there are only two seacocks, not such a big deal to make it proper way.
