    Thru-hull on Trophy 2002

    I have forgot to exercise seasick for wash down/bait well on 2006 trophy WA2002, and now handle is stuck. Any advice about lubricating handle in place before trying to force it closed. Also, seacock is currently open so handle standing up perpendicular to hull bottom. Is it obvious which direction this handle should be turned to close it?

    Looking from the handle side, its righty tighty-lefty loosey.. turn to the right to close it...

    As for lubrication, about all you can do without disassembling the seacock, is to pour some vegetable oildown the tube, or wd-40, and it will lubricate as it turns... then a few drops more while its closed, then work it to get the oil worked in around the moving part..

    Spray a bit of oil around the outside also, so it can do what it can to help free it up...
