I removed the plumbing from my holding tank to the overboard pumpout. This cleared out quite a bit of sanitation hose running from the tank to the vented loop in the hanging locker and back to the discharge seacock. This leaves the seacock with nothing attached to it.

Is there a recommended way to cap off a spartan seacock? It's the barbed type, not threaded. For the time being, I have a small section of hose clamped to it, with a barb-to-thread adapter on the end, and then a screw cap on that. Or should I just not bother -- close the seacock and remove the handle?

I know that the real answer is to install a washdown pump, putting the seacock to good use. But in the meantime, I'd rather not sink my boat.

Let's install a really powerful wash down pump! With 1.5" inlet hose, we should be able to remove paint with that nozzle!

That's an afternoon project... Mark
