Re: Crazy first time out on my sailboat today
The diagram you attached was what I felt it should look like. I guess maybe I would need some type of check valve at the hull.
This is what it looks like.
Yep those just run straight down, but you can see my point about the fact that water inside the boat should never come out of those. You are going to have to climb back there and take a look at the hoses and through hulls. You don't really need a check valve, the cockpit sole will sit high enough off the water that water will never come up, plus since they point down even wave action won't push water up. I have never had an issue and mine point aft.
