Water tank on 1985 Starwind 19'?

Anybody out there with a Starwind 19' please explain to me what kind of water tank system came original with my boat. When I bought the boat I found a 1 foot hose descending from under the water pump, which I assume went into some sort of water tank, and a 4 foot hose descending from the sink drain, but I can't figure out where that hose exited the boat. And there was no water tank/reservoir of any kind. What was original on the boat, and any suggestions on how I can improvise to access water for the pump and how to drain it. Right now I'm using 2 one gallon plastic water containers - it works but it's rather cumbersome.

Thanks,

Joe

The normal installation on most any boat is the sink drain to a seacock and through hull under the sink. This works unless the sink bottom is below the waterline. The water pickup usually goes to a fixed tank but could go to a suitably sized jug that is removeable for filling in a smaller boat. The vent on the tank will have to be open to pump water but could be closed when not in use.

I havent been to sailnet in a while and there are alot of starwind posts !!

I have a Starwind 22 MK2, and the PO had put a 5 gal gas jug (for water only under the vberth at the front, the sink drained to a seacock right below the drain in the sink..

we originally thought the gas can at the front was a spare, but upon closer inspection found the line that led back to the sink faucet pump !
