The rigging/sails looked very good, but again, I know very little. Need to take someone who knows these things with me next time.
Well if it is feed directly outboard, yes, that is a problem. I know in the US that has been illegal since the 1970's I believe it was part of the clean water act. I don't know about Canada, but it would limit your cruising quite a bit. I know in the Caribbean they have quite a lot of boats without. Many choose to not use there holding tanks, but that is a choice one has to make. The Coast Guard here will look for this in safety inspections and fine accordingly. If there was no tank at all there would unlikely even be a warning.
