Judy, in the original Marpol V, you could, depending on distance offshore, and not in a special area, dump paper, wood, metal, glass etc over the side. Now you pretty much limited to food waste only, and that is further limited depending on if its has been ground down, but if your in a special area, which includes GoM and the Caribbean area, and food waste is not ground, then it has to be kept on board. Fish are going to get skinnier.

Re: MARPOL Annex V Changes

I noticed the requirement for a garbage plan will be 100 gross tons not more than 12 meters anymore. Does anyone know if the grabage plan requirement in the US was different than the old MARPOL requirements or was the old requirement more than 12 meters?

Re: MARPOL Annex V Changes

Here is a link to the Norway summary. It is a good summary to read.

The changes do mean that most everything is to stay on board, except for ground up food waste. However, most of the East Coast, West Coast, Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean are special areas so no dumping there.

You have CE certification for 15. What do most cruising boats carry (legally)?

USCG formula is length X width / 15. A 40' boat with a 12' beam would have a capacity of 32 by that formula! So most cruising boats will need a trash log?

This summary seems to say that you qualify for the garbage logbook if you actually have 15 passengers, not if you have the theoretical capacity for 15 passengers.

Re: MARPOL Annex V Changes

gettinthere - I checked the original texts and it states the capacity to carry 15.

My boat is a Jeanneau 57, which is pretty big and designed to carry (theoretically, at least) that many people. Most sailboats are either smaller or not meant for that many bodies-on-board.
