Default Who's got sea cocks?

My seacock for my aerorater is frozen up and I need to replace it. As I understand it, it must be bronze if used in salt water. Brass (like they sell in Home Depot and Lowes) cannot be used.



I know that West sells them, however, I don't want to pay the super premium price to buy a "gold one" there. Any place local that I can buy one?

Goto west marine, find the sea cock you want. Pull up amazon and barcode search it and they will price match it.

Never settle for a bronze sea cock. Your only third best.

Ok...to bring it back up above 4th grade level for just a second... apart from the difference between the durability of brass and bronze when it comes to thu-hull fittings it is also critical that you don't try to mix and match fittings. The brass fittings that you get from Lowe's, Home Depot, etc have square pipe threads whereas the bronze sea cocks and fittings that you get from marine suppliers have tapered threads. The two don't match up and can only be threaded together for a couple of turns making for a very weak connection.
