ps. how much do pump outs cost? Per event or per gallon?
The pump out fitting for the tank should go to the bottom of the tank, or very close to it. It doesn't have to be directly underneath the pump out deck fitting, but the straighter the hose runs, the better off you will be.
The cost for the service depends on where you are. Most are per event, but some areas, like where I sail, the use of pump out facilities is generally free.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
