Hi Fellaz,

Still trying to get this phase done. Got back burnered due to a whole bunch of home remoldeling 'cause of some Gustov damage. Kitchen and living room totally demoed. Just got the living finished. Fighting off contractors and insurance left and right. Boy, what a stressfull ordeal. Anyway, Bud, you mentioned using pipe sealant. Any pariticular kind you might recommend? West Marine has some SIERRA PST pipe sealant, doesn't say what it's made of though. Also, if I used sealant, would it be very difficult to remove the cap afterwards? Would Teflon tape be good enough? Oh and I managed to see that the large seacocks I want to cap are the Groco SV 1500. I searched online and couldn't find an exact size for this model. Any idea? I'm guessing 1 1/2". I also couldn't see much on the smaller ones, I tried to measure it and was about 3/4 to 1", estimate for the difference of the threading and I'd say 3/4. Does that make sense or no?

Sorry for the barrage of questions, thanks in advance.

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!
