Re: Cruising turkey

Turkey has two realities. The 'imagined reality' that results from legislation and rules. This reality has fines for grey water discharge, unrealistic pump out requirements and the infamous 'blue card' regulations.

The actual reality is very different. It is possible that a coast guard vessel may ask to see your blue card, but the electronic system that records pump out litres doesn't work, so they can't actually check out your pump out figures. There are pump out stations in only about 3 centers (Fethiye, Marmaris, Gocek).

Its the typical turkish 'storm in a tea-cup', and can be safely ignored.
