Seacock Maintenance

2 days and 7 brass seacocks later I can now open by hand all these valves and have a better understanding of what each one does.  I ache all over and I have a giant blood blister but feel good to have these valves smoothly operating before we splash the Sundog for the season.  A special thanks to Charles McMurrough for coming down and helping and for Caleb for all his help.  One of the goals of this trip was to get a photo up of both mine and Cathy’s parents, having lost both our fathers over the last year it is special to have a photo up and one where they were both on the Sundog, we will cherish the memories.

Here are some photos –
