Sea Cocks

I have been giving the sea cocks a bit of thought and realized that I don’t really know that much about them. So a bit of research was in order.

I found a lot of really good information on the web.

The pictured sea cocks are Groco sea cocks which are considered top end and very pricey, as always you get what you pay for.

If anyone knows what kind of sea cocks and what size were standard from the factory it would be interesting to put up here. Let me know.
