Re: Jeanneau Attalia

Mark,

Ill be using the vacuum pump tomorrow to empty the boat before a race saturday. As I said, the previous/original owner of the boat, never put hoses into the tank. When you flushed, the head flushed overboard ALL the time. While legal back in 85, not when I bought her in 2005. So I ran lines into the tank, along with one that could pump overboard direct where legal. Eventually, I said screw that option, one never used it! So straight into the tank it goes. Have thought about disconnecting the manual overboard pump, as I will probably never be where I can dump legally overboard. So the vacuum option at various and sundry marina's is really the only option I have.

Marty
