If this is true then I would say that almost every boat at our club is in violation of this rule. That would be about 300 boats of every size. Also the boats at the club next to us would have problems as well as I have been aboard a few of them. Is this a new rule? I have never heard around the docks of anyone being hassled as long as the Y valve is closed to the overboard side. As long as itís locked with a cable strap from what Iíve heard. If true, itís the stupidest rule Iíve heard and just another attack on boaters. Where we are, in West Toronto, there is a huge treatment plant about 2 miles away. Every time there is a big rain storm this plant canít handle the amount of water and raw sewage is discharged into Lake Ontario, like thousands of gallons, Iíve seen it happen many times and the smell is very bad. Now how many boats would have to discharge that amount I wonder from just one incident?
