My marina is pretty good, and it is free! at least "ONE" of the two is pretty good, the other is a bit slow. They both work, as long as one holds the head into the outlet.

How's that work? It's got to have some holding capacity. And at once a year it has to be substantial.

nastiest toilet i ever smelled was a composting toilet a friend had in his boat a few years ago---in my head system i use odorloss chemical-is not blue--is biodegradeable and freshens the tank nicely without killing the fishies in the sea...even the pumpout that came to my boat went with the kerploosh noises....

Must not use the boat a whole lot... if you only have to dump the compost once a year... Composting toilets aren't magic... a month's worth of crap still takes up a substantial amount of space, even after broken down into compost... granted a lot of it is water, but there's still a month's worth of crap when all is said and done.

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 don't know how it is for other areas.. but around here (tidal delaware river nj and pa) pump outs are few a far between. The law is clear.. no dumping.. yet the law doesn't seem to make it clear that pumpouts must work and be accessable. One at the state marina is supposed to be free... well that almost never works. I don't know if it's true that the govs. provide $ for pump out locations but if they do it's a waste of $
