Re: What's the difference? Help route planning.
We use the pump-out station at Nanaimo. I've never had to wait to use it. We've tried to use the pump out at Lund, but it's typically blocked by moored boats. When we bought the boat, I found a hidden switch up forward. When I asked the owner what the switch was for, she called it a "Canada switch". When she saw the puzzled look on my face, she explained further it was for pumping the tank over board while cruising in Canada. In our experience, it's still a current descriptor for the switch. It's very difficult to cruise B.C. without the ability to pump overboard. Just don't do it in the anchorages.
