Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Antifouling
When our boat is out of the water I just put waterproof grease ( the sort that you might use for a dinghy trailer ) on the end of a stick and coat the valve, with someone inside the boat opening and closing to spread the grease around.. When on board we open and close the valves occasionally even if we don't need to.
Worked OK since 1977.

That is a good idea - vegetable oil to lubricate the holding tank valves - does anyone else know of an approved method to lubricate the through hull valves?
