many years ago in st lucia
i remember pumping out the grey water
tank,and due to its location the out let tends to siphon back if you forget to close off the seacock.
any way duly pumped out tank and forgot to close the seacock in my hurry to get to customs
and immigration before they closed,left my new crew member
on the boat as she dint want to go ashore till later.
after checking in thought i would check out the marina bar,see if there was any body i knew in there,it was also happy hour by now so no excuse not to go in.
any way about 4 hours later i guiltily went back to the yacht on anchor
,only to find sonia(the crew,now wife) had been bailing the yacht frantically for the last 4 hours as the tank over flowed on to the galley
floor.........not a happy bunny when i showed her the sea cock,next to where she had been mopping up the the water
for 4 hours!!!!!!!!!
