I go to Canada several times during the summer, so I've removed all piping and the Y valve associated with direct discharge of waste from my Newport 30. The question came up as to what would happen if everything just remained in the boat and the valves were just shut off. I was told the Canadians could inpound your boat, and you could be subject to a $5000.00 fine. Sorry I don't even want to find out the answer. Its not a big deal about getting pumped out, where we go in Canada if you stay at least for 2 days they will pump you out for free.
