I'm exploring the liveaboard
option in northern NJ on the Hudson
across from NYC
. I spoke with the GM of a marina while exploring the other day and he was very helpful in answering my newbie questions. I also got to watch in-water boats getting shrink-wrapped.
The marina allows liveaboards, has metered electric
, cable hook-up, water
filling twice a week in the winter and fuel
available year-round. However, there is no pump-out service
from November to April. While I understand the idea of using the marina facilities in general, I can't imagine mid-winter having to get fully dressed and trudge up the dock
late at night if nature suddenly calls.
So what do people in the colder climates do for on-board facilities when pump-out is not available (other than dumping overboard)?
