They should have their own (separate) plumbing and exit the boat via scuppers.

Also, if I kept my boat in a slip, I'd want to be able to close that seacock, but not affect my cockpit drains.
I am not 100% on the 219, but my 228 bay does have dedicated scuppers (2) with flaps for the cockpit drain that exit above the manifold's exit. I would imagine all of their models are the same. The manifold system absolutely reduces the amount of through hull penetrations below the water line, and it is a great design, but does not eliminate all of them as some salesmen would have you think. You've got the high speed pick-ups for pumps, drain plug, manifold exit, cockpit exits, bilge pump exit, and fuel vent (I'm sure I'm missing one more).
