Re: Do marina liveaboards dump their s@!^ in the river?
When I had one of my previous boats in the marina at Port Isabel they did not have a service to pump out except at the fuel dock IIRC, but since I was not living on the boat it never made much difference. I certainly would not ever want to dump my waste overboard in a marina, that is nasty. I have absolutely no issue with someone on a boat out in the gulf dumping their tanks overboard, especially if they have a macerator system or an electrosan, I just cannot see where people poop is any worse than fish poop in open waters. I am with the others that have said that this is feel good look what we are doing legislation. Oh holy moses, I said legislation...that might be partisan political talk.
It is good to learn from your mistakes, but much better to learn from the mistakes of others...
