Re: Holding Tanks with Urine only
I doubt there is any science that proves a small amount of urine, from a recreational live aboard does any harm. I've read perspective from many that human urine can contain chemicals, especially if one is taking meds, that are harmful to the marine environment. I suspect, in most marina, the dilution is still ample, but maybe not in all marinas.
In the end, while I'm okay with some discretion, I wouldn't want to be called out, in what Mark described as a small marina behind a lock, as a foreigner who hasn't been to the pump out in a while, without a pretty good explanation.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
