Nick, This one is pretty much a no-brainer...your $150k boat vs a few hundred dollars to pull it out of the water.
I have just removed four of my seven thru hulls and none of them had a nut holding them in. After taking off the seacock...which wasnt easy due to lots of corrosion...the wood block and thru hull came out very easily...a few taps with a hammer was all it took to drive the thru hull out of its hole. I have a W32 with those groco seacocks with the rubber cylinder and two screws holding it to the hull. Be careful if that wooden plug starts to leak and you have to drive it in farther.
Jeff
