Is your question in reference to MTS? If so here is the quick version.

There is a hole in the back of the boat where the water is drawn in, valve in the rear storage compartment to close it off when not in use, pump near the drive shaft outlet to pump water in, hose runs around drivers side then accross the bow to the top of the tank from the rear pump for filling, on the top of the tank there is a hose that goes to one of the side outlets on the passenger side as a overflow, there is a second pump on the bottom corner of the tank that goes out the side of the hull for draining right next to the overflow. Electrically, mine has a gauge by the throttle and a switch by the driver's cup holder.

Hope this helps (note I am describing how it was setup on my '01, could be different in a '09)
