Delray,

What you are suggesting is against ABYC recommendations. All below waterline thru-hulls should have a seacock and rigid portions of a plumbing system are more prone to bursting than rubber hoses which often have some give to them. Again I strongly recommend that the cockpit drain overboard discharge be above the waterline on any boat likely to be in the water in a freeze prone venue.
