Uhm yes, I am sure that obama has a place in FECES for you.

Perfect!

Usually in the FECES anyway. Getting paid for it? Priceless.

I am not sure it would pay much, sequestration and what have you, but I am sure you could carry your work home with you...

I believe they are looking for whale DIAPER compliance officers for the regions near the Alaskan coast. Do you have a dry suit with heat?

This is fantastic, I wish our marinas would come up with similar plan.

The last marina i was in Seattle had a mobile pump out service called Mr. Head. reasonably priced so everyone used it. Had to show your service contract to the marina. Think there is a ton of money in FECES.

Re: Do marina liveaboards dump their s@!^ in the river?

I have surveyed 2,906 boats, mostly here on Lake Ontario. Being a liveaboard for 16years I got tired of being accused of dumping overboard. I searched all 2,906 survey reports and found the following regarding boats 30" LOA and larger in Lake Ontario (I chose 30' because all liveaboards I know are bigger than that) .....

60% of sailboats surveyed are configured with operable overboard discharge systems.
8% of powerboats surveyed are configured with operable overboard discharge systems.
5% of all liveaboards surveyed are configured with operable overboard discharge systems.
Note : Percentages are rounded down to whole numbers.

Total sailboats surveyed - 1,591
Total powerboats surveyed - 1,315
Total liveaboards (power & sail included in above numbers) - 60

Re: Do marina liveaboards dump their s@!^ in the river?

Every live-a-board is different. Some have lectrasans they can legally pump overboard. Some only use onsite restrooms and never need to pump. Some only use the head for liquid waste and the restroom for solid waste and yes, they are illegally pumping, but, at least, no crap goes in the water. Some really don't care and pump everything overboard.

Re: Do marina liveaboards dump their s@!^ in the river?

While the BOATS anchored in the Corsica River presumably had legal MSDs, the TOWN had plumbed the new developement AROUND the treatment plant and dumped more raw sh## into the river than every boat on the river ever did in all the centuries boats have been used there by FAR

As for marina-dumpers, my marina is basically a dug-out basin with one narrow exit. We used to have one dumper and the smell would linger for days

Is there ANY other place besides the USA that cares about holding tanks? IIRC the boaters in Vancouver were a bit upset that Canada looked to be getting on the holding tank badwagon. Vancouver would be collecting boat sewage and then dumping it in the ocean untreated like all their other sewage.

Re: Do marina liveaboards dump their s@!^ in the river?

You have one guy in your marina (OP) who runs his boat AC by pumping fresh water from the hose on the dock through his AC cooling unit because he is too cheap to by a new pump. I am sure he makes up for putting fresh water in the river by crapping in it as well. Generally speaking I think people are pretty considerate -- but you just do the math: they don't have pump out facilities, the baths are unimaginably foul and no one seems to be using them . . ..

Where I am currently, they do weekly pump outs at your slip for $5 (automatic for live-aboards) free at the fuel dock. Great policy.
