Fuel Spill

I am a live aboard currently in hollywood fl about a mile south of port everglades on the icw.. There was a unidenified diesel fuel spill yesterday between the hollywood and sheridan bridges Dam even tonite (sunday) everytime i flush the head I am confronted with the strong smell of diesel. I dont know how much fuel it takes to cover a mile of the icw but thats about what there is ,I have a headache

Re: Fuel Spill

So, you're at a dock with a fresh water source,- stop taking in the ICW diesel spill water to flush the head. Close the intake valve and flush with fresh water!
Take care and joy, Aythya crew
