Ideas?

Could anything else be causing this? I didn't think so, as it seems to be naturally pressure fed. Normally, open the valves and the bowl starts filling. Close the valve and it stops. Fail to close the valves and sink the boat!
(And I'm ready for the jokes!)
1. Close seacock
2. Disconnect hose from seacock
3. Open seacock slowly
Water?
Rushing in or small drip?

If water intake is OK check hose between seacock and toilet pump.

If your toilet normally fills with water when seacock is open you should install a anti siphon valve..
