If you're getting leaks
in the forward area of the boat, and if it's plumbing-related... it's very likely the leak would be within the "common" plumbing
hoses and fittings, i.e., those serviced by either/both dockside and onboard water.
(Assuming you've eliminated outside sources like from your rope
locker and so forth.)
Approx 99% of your plumbing is "common."
When you connect to the dockside water source, you get continuous pressure... all the time, whether people are using system... or not... and you can't hear that.
If you disconnect from there, put water in your freshwater tanks, and turn on your freshwater pump... the pump will pressurize the system... and then after that the pump will only cycle when you use water... or when the system leaks and needs to re-pressurize
If you try that, it might at least lead you closer to where a leak might be. For example, you might find it happens maybe only when a forward faucet has been used. In any case, hearing the pump go on and off may help you troubleshoot.
