But your point about "emergency" situations is well made.
Can you leave the Y in then, to make it easier in case you decide a different place to put the pump at a layer date, then youll only have to add hose and pimp. Where's the holding tank located? How large is it?

I understand the room thing. I've seen that when everything is in the head especially. That's always an important factor and every boat is different. We lived without a mascerator for 4 years. Once we started traveling, offshore it was a no brainier, and all off our stuff, including the holding tank is under the v berth where there is a ton of room.

The y is located after the holding tank.one branch to the deck pump out, the other to the mascerator and thru hull.

Re: Apparently I'm not meant to have a boat...

We have a u-shaped dinette on the port side, and the holding tank is under the forward portion of the "U", immediately next to the head. The thru-hull for the raw water is on the port side, and eats up space too.

Re: Apparently I'm not meant to have a boat...

In thinking about it more, I don't think I can do the KISS holding tank arrangement because my tank is below, or nearly below, the waterline.

I'd love to order the hose so I could have it for this weekend, but I have no idea how much I need, and at $7.50/foot, I don't want to over-order by too much!

I would replace them. Lousy job, not terribly expensive, but is DIY. Most people do not take proper care of onboard waste systems and cause odor. They should not smell. If you start over, you can insure they never do. Get Peggy Hall's book Get Rid of Boat Odors. It's the bible. Your wife will thank you and you won't be on the receiving end of criticism when you just want to go cruising.

Get Rid of Boat Odors: A Boat Owners Guide to Marine Sanitation Systems and Other Sources of Aggravation and Odor: Peggie Hall: 9781892399151: Amazon.com: Books

Then get Raritan K.O., which I think she invented and sold them the rights.
+2 or 3 on the Peggy Hall book. She was the ultimate Head Mistress after all.

I did not know that she invented the formula for KO? I swear by K.O.
Somewhere in her book(let) she suggests that wiping down inside your lockers & hoses with K.O. will help "kill odors", which is what the "KO" stands for. Perhaps you could use the gallon size container for wiping down your inside cabin surfaces as well as head tank treatment?

The Chessie only smells that way, because PA treats it like their own, personal toilet bowl via the Conowingo dam. It must be nice to live "upstream".

Bubble, I think Denise was referring to my boat, not the entire Chesse!

Re: Apparently I'm not meant to have a boat...

For those still following this thread, Dragon Wing is in her new slip. We left Rock Hall on Sunday, spent the night in shallow water behind Reedy Island in the Delaware, and then headed to Cape May on Monday. We made the trip from Utsch's to Forked River today.

Thank you all VERY much for all the encouragement, good wishes, and helpful advice. The trip went off without a hitch, and I give y'all a lot of the credit.
