It would have to be - if you are beating the dock with the hose you are already half way towards replacing it - the old one is in your hand.

No new hose in sight, slap and spray all you want

it's part and parcel of the canadian liveaboard scene; only strange people do it. the guy beating on the poo hose was kind of living with this woman three boats down - a modified houseboat/tug/something or other. he had a 20 foot sloop as well and I often saw him sleeping in it. something happened and he was kicked out of the marina while we were away; maybe they had a big fight or something. so at ten at night i find him on the dock, in the dark, whacking away at this hose, which i assume came from her boat (he still hangs around). these folks really are living on the cheap, so i can see them recycling poo hose.

but after pulling out the old lectrasan unit and installing a holding tank, i would rather drill a big hole in the bottom of the boat than replace poo hose every year.

I just had an idea to deal with the ongoing problem of blocked discharge hose. I sent some vinegar down the head this am, and it occurred to me that if I guy would dump a box of baking soda in there, quickly pour in a gallon of vinegar, and pump like hell, the co2 pressure would build up awful quickly. as long as i clamped the vent hose first, it would probably blow out the blockage in the discharge hose.

Good point on the cooking oil SailingDog. I pump it over directly but never thought of the implications on the holding tank.

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.
