Can't legally dump the tank overboard if you're in an NDZ or with in the three mile limit. Big fines if you're caught.

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.

$5 for a pumpout?
Round here it's $15/tank!
You will be really fighting it to have to move the boat in all kinds of weather for a pump out. Give that some serious thought.
You might look into the porta pottie companies to come to your boat for a pump out. They go to the portable toilets and pump them out. The problems to face there are having the proper adapter to fit their hose to your pumpout fitting and the cost$. But it might be a good thing to have for dead of winter when it would be outright dangerous to move the boat in a blizzard just to pump the holding tank.

Coreyboy18 is on a distinguished road
KasbekZ,
I am curious to know what has come of your situation. Have you finally made it into your boat? I am contemplating moving into my Ranger 23 for a little while to save up money and also become a little more simplistic in my lifestyle. And like you, I am in school at the moment and see this as a good way to better my studies. Good thing is though, I am in New Orleans, so don't have too worry too much about the cold. The humidity on the other hand will be a bit-- yeah, bit of a problem...
