Question Water in engine

I have a 16' Tracker boat with a 60hp Johnson motor. My son recently borrowed the boat and had some trouble starting it. He put it in the shop for a tune-up. He has since brought the boat back and I was just checking the motor out in the back yard. I noticed water running out from under the cover. When I took the cover off, there is a fitting coming out of the engine that is a tee. One side of the fitting goes to a rubber hose that dumps the cooling water back into the river. The other side has nothing on it and it's just dumping water in the bottom of the upper portion of the motor. I can't find anything that seems like it would connect to it. Can anyone help. There is a good stream of water coming out the regular dump.

The open end is supposed to siphon water from the shroud.
Make sure that the y fitting is facing the correct way to create a
suction on the open end.

Thanks for your response. The two plastic fittings are now horizontal. Do I need to turn them vertical with the open end up or down?

The suction end should be on the uppermost end of the
vee with the water passing by it downward.
I hope that is clear
