I,m still learning
my way around our new to us sailboat.
We have a 1977 Pearson
323, I'm trying to find and clean everything possible and get familiar with this boat.
There is a waterline coming in from the keel
area in the bildge, it runs about 18" to a shutoff valve, then goes another 18" to a metal 'Y' shaped thing. The water
line then goes from one end of this thing to the water
pump, the other possible outlet of this 'Y' shaped thing has what looks like a nut that holds on a cap or lid type thing that looks like it can be opened.
Is there some sort of filter or basket in there that may be cleaned ????
Is this the sea strainer ????
Thanks - Bob
