Re: How big a holding tank vs. camping

Only story I have about holding tanks was when I was in the US canoe club. I was on watch and had to take a reading once an hour on the aft holding tank. This was done at the lower level watch station. This was done using air, after taking the reading you vented the air through a ¼” vent line which vented in the upper deck as high as the line could be run. Someone left the flush water running and filled the tank I took the reading opened the vent and it blew particulate all over the Engineering Officer who was not liked. Couldn’t happen to a better guy. The upper deck watch had to clean it up and he was grinning from ear to ear. I was informed by the Officer of the watch that the tank was full and not to sound it again till after it was blowed overboard!
