Re: A Self Contained Waste Water Treatment Plant On-board?

Heck yeah! My husband cooks a killer king crabs legs, and i can make my famous homemade pasta, pasta salad. We are baby sitting the beginning of April, but will be around late April :-)
Party at Rain Dogs :-)

Though we have never used them, the house of boats has a good rep and reasonable prices. Neat place, rustic, people from all over come to refit or to put on truck to trasport. We plan to haul out there soon, we may end up being neighbors with your friend :-)

Cheers,
Mrs. Rain Dog

Well then I'll provide my world famous ice cold beer. What is the prefference among the Rain Dog clan?

I'm embarassed to say I can't find the guys info It's a friend of a friend.

I'll PM you guys when Im getting that way. I'm taking the month of April off completely and doing the TX coast, hopefully all the way to Port I. Unless I find a hot fishing spot and just stay ;-) Even though I've seen the whole coast at various times, it's been in small boats camp-sailing. Going in luxury this time

And in relation to this thread, during that month I'll be happily using my very large capacity composter with optional urine collection or overboard drain.

So I place the book in the holding tank and it will keep odors away? Or does it convert waste to fresh water? Just kidding Peggie!

Howdy, we'll be neighbors for a while then, slipped nearby.
I'll give a qualified rec for the Rockport House of Boats at Cove Harbor (dang, they had a pretty good website but it seems not working ATT), they worked on my boat (before I bought it, I was told by PO), and it appears well done.
There is another haulout yard with a travelall catty-corner, near the SW corner/just off 35 and an ACND small boat ramp (not the ramps across the parking lot from HoB), forgot the name of it.
Another recc goes to Gatewood Service and Repair, 105 Cove Harbor South, Rockport, TX; Gatewood did a small job (so far) for me and handled it well. Gatewood is a Yanmar dealer too (and more too, although I'll guess most of their jobs are outboard fishing boats).
There are other shops in the Cove Harbor too, have heard a few good things so far on the dockvine, but I haven't been around that long.
Lots of others in the Coastal Bend area too, from Fulton, Rockport to Aransas Pass/PA/CC/Ingleside, etc., but I can't comment ;].

Re: A Self Contained Waste Water Treatment Plant On-board?

Gordo, please look us up too, we are in the City Marina. Rain Dog and Erika, I KNOW we need to meet up.

BTW, we are installing a Purasan unit, and will have it completed this weekend. Also, we have NO SMELL from either of our toilets or holding tank. We use a product called Enviro Tabs, that... I've had a hard time finding anymore. I need to look at the canister we have on the boat. You are WELCOME to try it - it works VERY well. Anytime we notice an odor on board, I'm sure to say "carp - forgot the powder for the holding tank...". Within a few hours, the smell is gone.

bstreep, wondering what you think of the Purasan. We are considering that system as well

We installed it a couple of months ago. Installation took a weekend and several trips to the store. It does take up a bit of space. The new design is much better and easier to install. I would suggest a dry run before installing.

The tablets are available WAY cheaper elsewhere. It's Sanuril. You can buy 25lbs for $150. About 80 tablets. Versus $50 for 6 from defender.

A dry run? That amount of tablets for that price sounds much better!Main question are you glad you put this in?
