So last week I notice a noxious sulfurous odor
I pull up to the fuel dock
and ask around only to learn that the marina I am at has no pump out!
My boat is at Marine
Basin Marina in Gravesend Bay, north of Seagate. Of course I will ask neighbors where they go, but maybe someone has a nearby recommendation? We are right next to Excelsior Yacht Club (private AFAIK), so if I don't need an invite, It would be terrific to go there. I guess I need to go to Sheepshead Bay. I need to fix this on an empty tank (obviously).
Here;s the punch line though: A really wild symptom that I just noticed today. Bear in mind that I just bought this boat (1989 Catalina
30) last fall, and the marine surveyor
- everyone - says it's a sweet boat. My nephew goes to use the toilet and when he flushes water
sprays out of the base of the stanchion right by the head!
I am sure fixing this will be a nightmare.
Sweet boat. Headache after headache. I think the prior owner never sailed more than 1/4 mile from the previous marina.
