If they are connected to the chainplates, sounds like someone wanted to use the seacocks as a lightning strike dissapater. Bad idea in my opinion.

Agreed that there is a big differtence of opinion on connecting all of the seacocks to a zinc plate on the hull. I believe that since a fiberglass hull is a good insulator, and if there is no wire in the hose connected to the seacocks, then the chance of electrolysis of a seacock is minimal. Bigger problem is not greasing them and opening and closing them regularly.

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!
