If you're going to go with PVC pipe, I would go with schedule 80, rather than 40, since it is stronger...and I would recommend using epoxy resin to glass them in, rather than polyester or vinylester, due to the stronger secondary bonding characteristics. You might also want to glass around the entire pipe, all the way from the cockpit to the hull, however, if you do this, you can probably drop down to schedule 40 pipe.
If you decide to use hose, rather than PVC pipe, I would recommend putting in a seacock.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
