Looks like this might be what we are looking for.
That's the bible. Peggy Hall is better known as the "Head Mistress". We follow her guidance religiously. We also treat our holding tank with KO, which I believe she invented and sold to Raritan. However, its expensive and useless, if you don't follow the remainder of her advice. You just kill the stuff.

CaptainForce 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

hellosailor "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.

Hopefully not a tippy canoe.

A pump out station to which you must go. Or a portable pump out that comes to you. That latter can be a honey wagon on a boat.

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

speciald 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

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