Newbe with no experience buys big boat

You win on the space argument. And since my tank is well ventilated, perhaps that helps with the smell. But it's hard to understand why pump-outs are a problem. I've never spent more than a week on my boat without crossing the 3-mile line offshore at least twice, and pumping is simply a matter of flipping on the macerator pump for a few minutes. As for environmental concerns, the two humans on my boat produce less waste combined than any one of the wall-to-wall sea lions or dolphins in So Cal, much less the run-off from the zillions of birds. I don't feel any need to apologize to Mother Earth for being one more mammal, albeit a small one, crapping in the sea.
