Do you ever use your manual water pump?

Has it occurred to you that a manual water pump may share a thru-hull with a washdown pump or the toilet (before somebody has a spasm, there's no reason why it couldn't share the INTAKE thru-hull!)...it could even share a sink DRAIN thru-hull if that thru-hull is below the waterline as it is on most sailboats..

I'm getting hauled soon so I will get a definitive answer to how many holes I have.*


Seacock for port and starboard engine strainer, genny, and A/C.* Haven't found any for forward and aft head.* Maybe freshwater?

Woody- I've got separate seacocks for both heads. Forward head seacock is under the hatch in the forward stateroom floor kind of just forward of where the electrical panel is at. The aft head has a seacock is just forward of the aft stateroom floor hatch that is forward of the centerline queen.

Are you saying that you don't know whether your toilet uses raw (sea, lake, river) water or onboard pressurized flush water???*

How long have you owned the boat???

We have eleven holes below the waterline of our boat, each one with a nice big bronze seacock on it.* All the intake through-hulls have perforated bronze plates over them, the outflow through-hulls do not.

A trick I learned from the captain of a corporate yacht I was associated with a few years ago is to wrap the handle of each seacock in siver reflective tape.* This way you can find or see the position of the handle even if the boat's electrical system is out and your only source of light in the engine room or other spaces is a little flashlight.

In my experience sea water is only at a hand pump on offshore sail boats.

A big DC salt water pump is common on inshore cruisers as deck washes or bait box fillers.

The trawlers will usually have a belted or today a Hyd sea water pump 1 1/2 or 2 inch to wash down the work areas and fish gear.
