Re: where does the water go?

It should not drain into the bilge. It should be connected to a thruhull and seacock.

If it drains to the bilge, that 's where your scraps will go. Not good for the bilge pump.

follow the hose out the bottom from the sink bottom and you will see the thru hull. is important to inspect them occasionally .

By now you have probably found the answer to your question. Just in case you haven't...my P26 had a soft-sided bag under the v berth. I took the sink out and discarded the bag. I day sail on a lake and just didn't need it.

About the only boats that sink water drains into some kind of tank, are boats on inland lakes that prohibit any kind of gray water (sink) discharge. The vast majority of boats drain gray water overboard. I've never seen or heard of any boats that drain into the bilge.
