I agree, Axe the site, I get too much spam as it is.

Well it looks like the OP is a spammer - no responses.

In another liveaboard forum I'm in, a guy listed a link for a online database he had with all the pertinent info - but it was only for Florida. Later in the thread a woman mentioned that she searches for pump-out facilities by state being that they are usually located at marinas - why is it so hard to track down the marinas themselves?

Anywho, I thought that was a fantastic idea and I did just that for the entire East coast - from Canada to Texas. Most of the info I found had to be copied-pasted into a word doc, but I'm sure we could complie our own database. Maybe we could create a free yahoo group just for that one purpose. Anyone interested? I can't do all the work myself but, I'll do my area - Jersey shore. Are we all only concerned with ocean/bay marinas, or fresh water as well?

Just a thought.
Jim

Kernix-

Marinas.com has the US pretty well covered IIRC. you might want to check them out, rather than re-inventing the wheel.

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.

I found that site before and didn't find it useful - like in I type in Jersey I only get 21 hits, whereas when I searched for Pumpout facilities in NJ I found a pdf file with 167 names. Now could it be that there are some pumpout facilities where there isn't a marina perse? Don't know - still a newbie - you would have to answer that one. But how come in my list of pumpout facilities there is one in Cape May called Harborview Marina - note "marina" - and that name does not appear in the 21 hits at marinas.com when I searched for "jersey"?

Could it be because Harborview Marina does not have a website? If so, does that make it any less of a marina - no. What do you think?

Some of those "pump out facilities" might be for RV's.

Might want to give some people benefit of the doubt every so often .. From the Panbo blog today... They are not planning on using the mailing list to make money (right now)...

can't be 'cause so many of the "Names of Pumpout Facility" have "Marina" or "Yacht Club" or "Boat" in their names plus besides having column headers like "Hours", "Phone," they also have columns labeled "Lat. (N)/Long. (W)" and "Water Body" and "Largest Vessel (ft.0)" - that's info for boaters.

Here's the link for the pdf:

Now I have others on the East coast - what do you guys think? Can't do it alone.

Quittin time - remind me on Monday.
