I HAVE RECENTLY BOUGHT WHAT i BELEVE TO BE A 16 SSL WHALER HERE IN THE UK, I AM CONCERNED THAT ALTHOUGH THERE IS A SWITCH FOR THE BILGE PUMP ON THE CONSOLE I CAN'T FIND ANY OUTLET FOR THE PUMP ON THE STERN?
THERE APPEAR TO BE TWO OUTLETS ON THE STERN ONE ON PORT AND THE OTHER ON STARBOARD WITH WHAT APPEAR TO BE FLAPS PRESUMABLY TO STOP WATER ENTERING THE HULL WHILST ALLOWING WATER FROM THE DECK TO DRAIN. BUT ON OPERATING THE PUMP NO WATER CAN BE SEEN LEAVING THE HULL.

Sounds like the two ports are the scuppers, look behind the switch perhaps it isn't wired to a pump.
