Heaven forbid your bilge pump should come on.

Our marina is close to where the large ships come in. The oil tankers, car carriers and cargo ships all dock along where we sail out. Once a week or so we see diesel or something else spilled from one of them. We're probably talking many gallons, too. I don't think I've ever seen any of them fined.
