Closing seacocks when slipping.

What is slipping? Going to your slip? Or do you mean haulout?

I always close my seacock as soon as the engine is shut down. As I generally do a seacock check and replace the impeller when I haulout, all rawwater is drained from the system. I always check the water flow from the wet exhaust and never had any problems.

Apparently means haul-out. See posts 6, 12, and 14.

Slipping usually involves a slipway.

Using a travel-lift (or straddle lift) is lifting out, or sometimes hauling out.

Marinas keep boats in berths, not slips.

North American terminology in common use is a bit different for sure.....
