Yes, good point, and though I try REALLY hard to keep the bilge
clean, there are certainly some stains around the current bilge
exits that show I have not always been successful.
Actually, one advantage of the current
setup it that I have been able to fit a hose to the exit point which is on the dock
side of the boat, and pump gunk from cleaning
the storage tanks
out into big drums and dispose of them properly. Might keep one small pump connect to the starboard side for just that purpose now I think of it.
