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
