I am surprised how this conversation thread turned into a debate about whether or not to dump tainted bilge water into the water or ground table. That was not my original intent. No bilge sock is going to completely get an oily bilge clean ... so if you know if you dump it somewhere other than where you swim and sail, why not dispose of it in a place that can treat/handle it properly. I was just wondering where that was. The marinas around here seem to have varying explanations ... as long as it doesn't get into the water, I'm fine.
