" I see an inline small cylinder looking thing with power to it in the fuel line"

That says it all. I still say it's an electric fuel pump.

Oh, hell yeah. Like the wire bundle that runs down the center of the bottom-side of the cockpit sole that has a newer cable run tied to it... with an in-line fuse holder smack dab in the middle of it??? "What the hell..." I wondered? (Since figured it out. It has to be for the automatic fuel shutoff that was added.) Then there's wiring for the radio/CD/MP3 player that was added to the cabin. *shudder*, along with the new VHF radio's wiring. Gotta do something about that. And the cables for the replacement depth and knotmeter transducers: Just kind of wandering through and across the port and starboard locker areas under the settees--just waiting for something to be carelessly stowed or retrieved from them, destroying a cable. (Necessitating transducer replacement.) What else... well, at least the batteries are now secured. Can't believe the PO just let 'em sit there in the bottom of the lazerette, loose.

Which reminds me: I really need to i.d. all the fuses and lightbulbs on her and get spares on board. And a handy little multi-meter. Really should have one of those on the boat...

All in good time. All in good time.

Yes that is what the mystery switch is for!! When you are overwhelmed with pirates (from another thread). You throw the switch and abandon ship.
