As and inboard the sail-drive should not have and outboard motor like hand pump bulb installed below deck IF that is the primer you are describing ?

All the below deck fuel line should be A-1 type and the tank fill line and vent should be A-2

Its pretty common for well meaning previous owners to do things like this rather than fix the real problem with the fuel system

you have to be a bit careful as the OMC is a lot LIKE like the outboard it came from BUT the fuel/electric system was changed for a below deck install

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
