    Re: Need Help Removing Internal Sea Strainer

    Pascal you beat me to the inspect at the least and or replace the thru hull and sea cock suggestion.
    We've changed all of ours, after eliminating many of them.

    Re: Need Help Removing Internal Sea Strainer

    Almost finished. Enough of the strainer plumbing is removed. One nipple and 30 degree elbow remain. They would not move and there seems no need to remove them.
    The fittings were all bronze and there was no evident corrosion. It appears that bedding material made disassembly challenging.
    After removing the paint from the threads I used PB Blaster and later tried a penetrating oil named Kroil. It was highly recommended, but I wonder if either oil made much difference.

    The strainer frames were removed with nipples and elbows still attached. I removed them from the frames at the house where I had room to work. They seemed immovable to leverage but gave way to impact. Hitting the pipe wrench with a 16 oz hammer made things give.

    Thanks for the good advice.
