It does have a seacock, the thing is I have been always using a suction unit at my marina, recently moved to a new marina that does not have one (@easter) so could not suction out after the long stay, so on the next outing I went to sea to pump out, and nothing happened, tried it moving and stationary, nothing, checked the tank and its 3/4 full, so I got the duck bill valves replaced and the guy sent me a text saying the pumps working and all tested ok, so again I went to sea to dump and nothing, both stationary and moving so I gave up and came back into the marina, went back down to the tank and ...... It was empty, turns out the guy who changed the valves used a mobile unit to remove the waste, so I have been trying to pump nothing so will now have to wait and see how it works later, thanks for the info
