Re: How big a holding tank vs. camping

"I have no problem with peeing over the side in open water, but it is technically a violation of discharge laws and there have been people cited, if witnessed doing so. "
Runs contrary to everything I've ever read. You are not allowed to discharge waste from any equipment on the boat, or any part of the boat, but AFAIK an animal, human or otherwise, is still allowed to pollute the waters directly.
Pee in a cup and dump it, that's a violation. Pee without the cup, no violation of sanitary or pollution or dumping laws. Local laws about public urination or indecent exposure, are a whole other issue. (Political comment deleted by tdw) . (VBG)
