Re: New to SailNet; New to Me Boat
I don't have a Morgan, but my engine seacock is under the sink in the head. Point is, boat builders are very creative in hiding things you need to find.
Locate your engine's raw water pump. Assuming you have a fresh water cooled engine, your pump has 2 hoses, one going to the heat exchanger and the other going to the seacock, usually with an inline strainer.
Now's the time to get to know your boat up close and personal. Open every opening you have, stick you head in with a good flashlight and find all your thru hulls, bilge pumps, sump pumps, anything with a hose. Figure out what each hose is used for.
The thru hull is there...you just have to find it.
