Do you know how some projects lead to others? This past weekend I was replacing my water heater and decided to relocate the fresh water manifold to under the sink as others have done. I was messing lightly with the galley sink drain hose when it cracked in my hand.....my hoses are 18 years old, but I would recommend inspecting and replacing if you have the crap%^ type of ribbed style "bilge hose" for your galley drain. It is NOT the proper hose when connecting to a thru hull. CY may have changed this with newer production models. I replaced it with 1" reinforced vinyl hose and all is well.
This opened my eyes regarding closing thru holes when off the boat.
