Here's the pickle:
Boat has a 40gal holding tank
. Full. No overboard
pumpout fitting (only fittings for marina pumpouts). No marina pumpout facilities anywhere nearby.
Here's the plan:
Make up a hose / pump / hose, with some alligator clips off of the pump to attach to the battery
, and drop one end in the holding tank inspection
port and the other overboard
. This will require a pump which can self prime and which can lift
the $**t about 5' to clear the companionway
What is the cheapest pump I can find that will handle the job?
Does it need to be a macerator / pump?
Anyone else dealt with a similar situation -- am I missing a better solution?
