All the stopcocks on my sailboat are seized open. Is there a way of freeing them off? or do they need replacing?

Regularly spray them WD40 or a similar spray. Then periodically try turning the stococks, dont force them though, just keep easing them. The chances are that if you do this regularly, the will un-seize. Also make sure that you double up on jubilee clips on the hoses that are attached to the stopcocks and that the hoses are in good condition, this gives extra protection.
Godd luck and happy and safe sailing!
