Sewage system
I have given some thought to the sewage system on Ocean Dove. I would like to flush the heads with fresh water only. On the Great Lakes that is not a problem. I am considering piping the fwd. drinking water tanks to the heads. Removing the Y-valve and overboard connections from the heads and pipe the heads only to the holding tank. The holding tank will only be pumped out through the deck pump out connection or through the grinder pump and overboard. A lockable Y-valve would be in place between the holding tank, deck pump out connection and the grinder pump. The weak links are the grinder pump and the volume of water carried in the fwd. tank. A spare grinder pump and spare parts could be carried aboard and with a water maker hopeful fresh water would not be a problem.
I am open to debate on these ideals, so please comment and don’t be afraid to say I am stupid, just say why.
