Little Bear Westsail 32 refit: Through-hull removal Vlog # 45


Aarrrrr me hearties! Good to see you again.

This time it’s all action – I put the through hull tool to good use and remove all the 1 1/2 inch through-hulls.  The smaller ones are still in the hull because the tool is just a smidge too big. My welder friend machined the tool down a bit but it wasn’t quite enough. So, that’ll have to be machined down again and removed in another episode.

I priced out the new through-hulls / seacocks I’m going to buy. Dang expensive! roughly $175 ea.!!   I have 5  1 1/2″ fitting to replace and 2 5/8″ fittings..  Lotta loot for fittings!



As always, fair winds, following seas, God bless!
