Just went to a lecture at the Cruising Association on the brass seacock situation. I am scratching my head...definitely in the amazingbuttrue category.

Wrote a summary of my notes at the lecture here: The Cruising Kitty: The Wrong Seacocks Can Sink Your Boat

Does the same situation exist in the US?

There is a problem in Turkey with Brass Seacocks, All the chandleries are selling them and even the yards are fitting them on boats. I even have a couple because I cant find Whitworth Bronze . Westmarine is selling Groko bronze here but only for UNC. All quite unbelievable
I am keeping a close watch on the temporarily fitted brass ones and am planning change to
stainless now thatr I found them (as a compromise)
