Are you referring to a galley sink or the sink in a head? The location of the valve will depend on the boat and if the previous owners made any modifications.

On our boat the galley sink drains directly out of the boat using a dedicated opening in the hull. There is a shut off valve located under the sink beneath the galley counter. Our sink in the head ties into the line that draws water into the head. If we close that seacock, the sink does not drain or any water in it will be drawn into the head when pumped.

I don't ever remember seeing a valve on the hull of a boat.
