Re: Jeanneau Attalia

i think I figured out what to do. My particular model of Attalia does not have a valve with a thru hull. It ONLY goes into the holding tank and the tank can only be pumped out. I think it was finished for the Great Lakes and not for any offshore work where you can discharge. Rather than haul out and put in a thru hull with a series of valves etc, I'm going to use a an electric diaphragm pump with a 1 1)2 connector to the holding tank deck fitting with some connecting pipe and then, when I'm offshore in clement weather, I,ll hook it up and send it overboard.
