Very unlikely, but it depends on how the water is going to get into the cooling system and how high the water pressure is. If you're not using a strong mechanical fitting to attach the water supply to the through-hull, I doubt that you will generate enough water pressure to damage the cooling system.
If your marina has very high water pressure*, and you've screwed the hose into the through-hull or used some other very secure method to attach the hose to the through hull, you might have a problem. However, I think it is far more likely that a hose or hose clamp would give than the metal inside the cooling system... but YMMV.
*At my previous house, the water came in at almost 110 PSI, and we needed a pressure regulator added to the water system to prevent it from damaging the pipes and fixtures. Normally, water systems are at about 60 PSI IIRC.

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.
