The forward drains are probably the ones doing the work when you're sleeping in the V berth on a rainy night. It's not all that uncommon for builders to combine drains like sink and cockpit, but a bit less than ideal. You can never have too much drainage in the event you get caught in rough conditions. Those through hulls probably should not be closed underway unless the sink tends to fill when heeled.
