I copied this idea from a previous post of Eric's - works very well

Hi Alexandre,

I connect the hose directly to the shore water.

I run the genset, engine, anchor wash, air conditioning and then the toilets.

I have a valve on the hose near the end so I can shut off the water between operations.

I can’t say how long I leave the water run, I just run as I feel is appropriate.

You will find that the water pressure from the dock causes the water to go past the toilet pumps and fill the bowls. In the last few years I have not seen a problem with this.

Good afternoon Gary,

I didn’t know seacock could have a slight leakage, so yes I totally understand your concern.

Anyway, I just added 3 pictures of the lid on:
http://nikimat.com/vetus_1320_raw_water_filter_strainer.html

I will also email them to you directly.

Andrew, I love the idea of having a hose attachment for fresh water.
On my ski boat (Correct Craft Ski Nautique), I did that (to rinse the engine with fresh water).
How do you control the water flow? Do you have like a bucket above the hose that you fill up, how long do you let it run, etc.
Or do you only rinse the other systems (anchor wash, air conditioning, toilets, etc.)

Sincerely, Alexandre

Thanks Alexandre, Mark and Andrew for your replies.
 Each was very helpful.  As to why I am concerned? This is
such a critical system and a leak could have such dire
consequences, even with the sea-cock closed slight leakage
past the valve will eventually overflow the top of the
sea-chest (as most have noted).  I feel very uncomfortable
not having the lid in place.
I have located a diver and I am
trying to find a picture of the lid to email to him so he
knows what he's looking for/feeling for in the murky
water, yet having scanned every photo on this site and all,
2,400 pictures I have taken of my boat and its systems, I
can't find a single picture of the sea-chest lid or even
of the seachest/thru-hull.  Boy, it just doesn't get
any photo respect. 
Could someone take a pic of the
sea-chest lid and one of the sea-chest so that the diver
will know what he is looking for and then my caretaker will
know where to put it.  Please post here or just email the
photos to me at garysilver at mac dot com.
Thanks again for the replies, the
information, and photos. 
Sincerely, Gary Silver
