Either I'm confused or Bud and Don are talking about two different things.

A drain line for the bilge or a sump should have a vented loop that is always above the waterline.

The cockpit drain line would not drain properly if it is taken up into the bulwark.

Don, after reading some of the other postings I'm in the process of moving my cockpit drain lines aft and above the water line. It shouldn't make any difference when healing as the old thru-hull was always below the waterline. Given the location of the cockpit drain I think the stern would really have to be pushed down for it to get below the waterline, even when healed over.

Even with the new cockpit drain thru-hull location being above the waterline I'm still using seacocks.

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!

See the full list here!
