Yep.

How do we get the control back?

Correction. That should read Palm Bay FL.

Re: Waste Holding Tank

Thanks for the good info. Its good to hear that the outboard title is not a big deal. I am in Texas and the boats I've had before had titles on the motors.

For the tank, its going to be in the bulkhead right next to (abeam) the head. It would be an odd shaped tank. I wouldn't know how to measure for it. How good are the bag types? Is it just as easy to pump them out, or is there something special about them?

Forget about the bladder, unless you like the smell of your own poo

Re: Waste Holding Tank

You need to take a serious look at composting heads. No need for a tank.

Re: Waste Holding Tank

Sea Rags, sounds to me like there's a book you should read, first, if you're prudent:

Get Rid Of Boat Odors--a Guide to Marine Sanitization Systems and Other sources of Aggravation and Odor, by Peggy Hall.
