Cal 35 Raw Water Intake Question

Anyone familiar with the raw water seacock on a 1983 Cal 35. The thru-hull goes to a valve and then there is a Y just before the barbed fitting for the hose that feeds the Raw Water pump. The Y looks to be adjustable and/or have a moveable valve body but has no knob or handle; just a stub that could be moved with an adjustable wrench. Is this a strainer? There is no in line strainer on this raw water feed. Thanks if you have seen it before. Maybe flow regulator? or some kind of insertion filter that slide into the Y and enters the pipe before the hose connection? It doe not appear to have ever been adjusted or opened up for maintenance.

Thanks for any help you may have.
