What is this part?

I have a fitting on both valves covers with a hose attached. I assume the one on the right side of the engine (the left photo) is the pcv valve. What is the other one?

Does it have a name? Does it need to be replaced? I can't find anything on it.

I guess the pic. on the left is the actual PCV valve and the pic on the right looks like just a right angle plastic fitting. I don't remember my boat having two lines running off the valve covers and to the intake. I also don't know why your 08 sunscape has that flame arrestor that it does. It can't be carb'd?

Yes, a line from each valve cover.

The photo on the left is the PCV valve, and the hose connects below the throttle body.

The photo on the right is the unknown/unnamed part, ad that hose is clamped next to the spark arrestor / intake filter but it is not a hard connect between the hose opening and the spark arrestor, there is an air space there.
