Here's a stupid question: what is the purpose of the scupper through-hull valve? Does a bilge pump attach to it? I'm talking about the one forward on the boat, under the V berth.

Some former owner must have added that. I don't think the factory installed a through-hull up under the v-berth area. The only factory-installed through hull is back just aft of the companionway where the cockpit scuppers drain through it.

The thru hull forward on the older boats was for the over board head that was standard. Technically to race in PHRF a boat must have: an enclosed head (the C22's had a curtain); a galley with a whale (that is a pump with water storage); lifelines ( which the C22 Association has allowed to be removed); a man-over-board life ring with pole, light, whistle, and ERB attached, to be within the reach of the helmsman (our class rules do ot require it and I think it is waived for small inland lakes);
But that was why they had an inboard head.
