"Oily Pollution" and "MARPOL Trash" Placards?

I just took the USCG On-Line Virtual Vessel Safety Check. Two things I answered "No" to were having an "Oily Pollution Placard" in the engine compartment (because I don't know if it's there or not) and having a "MARPOL Trash" placard, because I'm certain I haven't seen that on board.

So, assuming I don't have the former, and knowing I certainly don't have the latter: Where can one obtain these? Is there somewhere on-line I can get the appropriate things to print out and laminate?

I searched, but all I'm coming up with are references to having to have them.

Thanks,
Jim

I've gotten them free from Coast Guard Aux. during safety inspections. Chandleries like Worst Marine will have them in everything from plastic to brass if you want something fancy. I put them inside the engine cover and inside the cabinet door under the sink so they don't show anyway.

You could stick the Marpol trash in the head for people to read as they sit there. Think of it as educating your guests.
But you really want in the area of your trash bin.

Thanks, capttb. Looks like another visit to West Marine is in order . (Good thing the area near my boat is littered with 'em, isn't it?)

Btw: I would note the regulations state the MARPOL Trash Placard must be "displayed in a prominent location," from everything I've read. I plan to attach it somewhere readily visible in the galley area. I'll buy a nice-looking one .

There's a hatch into the engine area, starboard of the companionway steps. I imagine that's where I'll attach the "Oily Discharge" placard.

I had a faded Marpol in the galley by the sink and it was an Aux. examiner who suggested the placement inside the door. He was also a sailor and may have been mistaken in favor of esthetic concerns.

I made up my own in Quark XPress and had the local sign company output them onto sign material. I had a choice of different materials and colors, and went with anodized aluminum sheet for the sign and black lettering.

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.

It turned out the engine space already had two of 'em in there . No MARPOL placard anywhere, tho. Just have to get together w/the Admiral to determine where to place that one. (Going to be a compromise between "prominent location" and completely hidden, I suspect.)

Our dockmate, who is a member of a local USCG Aux, gave us a MARPOL sticker during a courtesy inspection. His advice was to adhere it to the inside face of the undersink cabinet door - where we keep the trash bucket.

Merlin-

Be aware that the discharge sign doesn't meet the USCG specifications which have specific wording for the signage.
