How to fill water tanks

     I just purchased a Westsail 32 and was wondering if I'm missing something. The boat has deckfills for fuel and waste pump out, but no water. Are you supposed to drop a hose down a hatch and fill via the plugs in the top of each tank? 

     Thanks in advance,

    If there's a deckfill for water, only once will you enjoy the spectacle of a dock employee filling your water tanks with fuel.  Or connecting the waste pump hose to the water deckfil and pumping the contents out.\\

    That's normal. I bring the hose down through the companionway that has a shutoff valve at the end. I attach a smaller section of hose to it, put it in the tank and open the shutoff valve. PITA but that's the setup.

    Westsail purposely did not provide water deck fills on the W32s, because of the reason of possibly accidentally getting fuel in the tanks.
