Re: Discharge of grey water

The graywater from sinks and cockpit drains can go directly to the through-hole to the ocean. With my first sailboat, I too was surprised that water from the sink went directly overboard. Obviously this means that you must be mindful of what goes in your sink. Use biodegradable soap etc.
