Welcome to FP.
Can you clarify, please. Is it the water coming in, or the water going out? I assume by removing motors etc. you are having trouble with the water leaving. If so, have you cleaned the through hull from outside of the boat. Perhaps you picked up some critters along the way.
With best regards,

I noticed after our 17 day rather rough ride between Oahu
and FP that my aft head flushes very slowly. OK, no big problem (not my first
rodeo), so change the hoses (clogged), use my drill driven auger on the fitting
and.......only about 50 pct better and not nearly the speed of the bow head.
Next I break out the medieval tools, pipes I've sharpened and cut to length and
I can now make contact with the top of the holding tank from the bottom of the
fitting (with a big pipe)...ie. there is no blockage. Better, but still not
overly fast. New macerator motor, new hoses, no blockage in fitting......not
sure what to do next. If I damaged the copper pipe fitting on its way up to the
top of the tank, it wouldn't effect flush speed (I think ?)
