|scottyt||on my hunter 27 the head intake is under the v berth starboard side, right next to the off shore holdng tank pump out. the sink has a large valve behind the galley cabinet under the cockpit. i have the hunter plumbing drawings and mine matches the drawing. i wonder if someone added a salt water rinse for the sink, how many faucets does your boat have? the only seacocks are the head flush and over board pump under the vberth, and the raw water intake under the engine per the drawing. the other must be added|

|sailingdog||Given that it was described as being beneath the engine... I'd guess it was below the water line.|

Especially if the boat was outfitted for long distance cruising, since the water in most harbors is rather nasty...

|Faster||Plenty of boats have had salt water galley sink intakes, either hand or electric pumps, for rinsing dishes, or even for washing them, to conserve fresh water supplies for drinking/food preparation.|

Key word being "likely". I remember the raw water intake for my Dad's Chris Craft was back by the engine even though the head was quite a bit forward.
The only way to figure out what it's for is to follow it. Head or water maker are the only things I can think of that would use raw water. Most sinks and showers (at least that I have ever used) use fresh water.

|sailingdog||If the head is forward, the raw water seacock for it is also likely forward, not back in the engine compartment.|
