Re: Sewage Management

OK. Wait a minute. I thought there was a conflict between the last post...ALL BOATS... and the earlier one about if a sanitation device is installed. It's not the system that's mandatory, it's the tank.

The only head I had on my dingy was at the top of the sail.

Re: Sewage Management

Correct. There's no law requiring a toilet on a boat, only what ELSE you must have IF you do have a toilet.

Re: Sewage Management

Thanks, Peg

It took a minute, but I finally got it. BTW, just for completeness, does your "direct deposit" mean it is legal to, well, you know.

Re: Sewage Management

Yes...it does. Though it's less likely to result in a loss of social standing if you only do that while in the water holding onto the anchor line when you're the only boat boat in the anchorage.

Re: Sewage Management

It's too late for me to edit my previous post...I should have said "all boats WITH TOILETS..." The law does not require any boat to have a toilet, it only applies to boat that do have one. However, no toilet doesn't make "bucket and chuck it" legal in any waters inside the "3 mile limit." That's covered under the definition of "discharge" ("includes, but is not limited to, any spilling, leaking, pouring, pumping, emitting, emptying, or dumping"). However, the good news is, it only applies to "sewage" ("human body wastes and the wastes from toilets and other receptacles intended to receive or retain body wastes")...it doesn't apply to gray water ("shower, bath and galley water").
