Well!!!!!I am just utterly appalled at the attitude of so many people to polluting the waterways! I really enjoy being able to swim in clean water off the boat and get very annoyed by people who are too lazy or cheap to go to a pump.These very same people think nothing of spending a fortune buying fancy schmanzy electronic gear for their boat but thumb their nose at the environment.Shame on you!!!!!!

You are way off base.

Nobody is promoting pumping overboard where they shouldn't.

They are ranting about stupid regulations that say they need to remove hoses; when a simple method of locknig a through-hull would suffice.

I was once next to a boat belonging to a lawyer from Cleveland Ohio on the Erie Barge Canal and he bragged that although he had a holding tank is remains in pristine condition as he diverts every pee and poop directly overboard .I hope he is not the norm amongst my American neihbours.

Here's the law:

DISCHARGE OF SEWAGE FROM PLEASURE BOATS

I think a locked diverter would be fine. The key phrase is 4(c)- "no other means"- if the diverter is permanently closed, then there is "no other means" to discharge waste other than a pump out.

I thought the nornmal practice was to close the thru-hull and remove the lever. That has always been accepted around my area. Maybe Canada is being stricter but I would think Val and the others would know best.

Besides, the environment poops on my deck all the time... if you can't take it, environment, don't dish it out.

Look, I like clean water too. I love to swim! And I always save my precious poo for the hungry hungry pump out pumps. But the environment -- the more you pretend that you and the environment are buddy-buddy, the more likely it is to jump out from behind a bush and maul you.

Screw the environment!

p.s. Keldee that water you love to swim in? Fish piss in it.

Exactly, I would never discharge into the Lake, only a pig would do so. But I am getting very sick of boaters getting blamed for Lake pollution, especially sailboats. They pick on us because they are either stupid, envious or jealous, or all three. You can swim beside your boat at the dock? Now I'm envious! Moving up there!
