My lines are VERY short, and I usually refrain from urinating in the head because it's wasteful. I go over the side, unless I'm singlehanding or it's rough out.

You mean in theory, right? You wouldn't want to get the Chessey environ protectors to come down on you.

Sure, in theory. While we're speaking hypothetically, urine is sterile. It's feces that contains harmful bacteria. I'd never drop a poo in inland waters.

Hypothetically speaking.

Annapolis Harbor runs a pumpout boat that will come to your slip in season. Here in the Caribbean there are no pump out stations East of St. thomas that I am aware of. The Charter boats are amost all dirct overboard plumbed. Palmas Del Mar Marina in Puerto Rico has fancy in-slip pump out and fueling

No argument from me. However, the environmental police do not distinguish between the two.

"such a thing as a slip with its own pump out "
Keep the boat on a trailer.
Keep the trailer in a trailer park.

Problem solved, they all have hookups at every spot.

Slips with individual sewage pumpout connections are common in South Florida and I've also seen them in some other East Coast US marinas. Some have suction pipe stands that are placed where every slip is within a portable hose length. Take care and joy, Aythya crew

Individual slip pump out would work best for us. Is there some type of resource that is available to cover things like the head and the smells ? I found this book on Amazon.

Looks like this might be what we are looking for.
