Pretty sure my mobile beer and hard cider beverage dispenser met this specification last year, but I'm always willing to submit my contents to temperature inspection and evaluation.

Just got a note from Anne at the FPCM. She said that due to construction that no pump outs are available. There are tenant restrooms on both the North side and the South side. She recommends to get a pump out before arriving at the marina. Also, there are pump outs available at Holiday Harbor and Pelican Yacht Club for a nominal charge. Discharge is not permitted in the harbor.

With the amount of food to be consumed I’ll be sure to arrive with the black tank empty. Thanks Don.

Is she indicating that with the time already elapsed and with three months before the gathering they still have no plans to have pump outs available? They're going to go through their entire peak season without.

I have had it happen so it's nice to see thinking people....but rarely



I used to dislike some marinas up on the Chesapeake when I would ask in December if there was a discount....and when the answer was no.... I would mumble as I walked out...


Your water is turned off, the bathrooms are closed, the restaurant is closed, the pool is closed, the pumpout is shutoff, your hours are reduced, the ships store is closed and full summer seasonal price in effect is such a deal....

Will there be a group pumpout cruise planned for the weekend?

The way to look at that is holding tank capacity divided by people on board.

Mine is 80 gallons 1 person = 80.

Irv...whaaat?


Why am I embarrassing you?


I point out what many perceive as the typical ethos of American businessmen (that's shot to all who constantly blast government workers ...not you Irv) and I am embarrassing?


I would rather think of it as "fair minded"....


Now if I casually wandered over to your boat and asked to use the head all day long.... that I would consider an embarrassment...especially if I stopped for a drink every time...

Well then. If there are no pumpout facilities then they have to be a little more lenient on the boys.....uuuuhhhhh...... “checking the dock lines” at the end of the finger piers!!!

Scott your welcome anytime to do anything you wish (however no discount on food or drink from Watfa) because the marina does not offer pump out) but may I suggest that Ted has a great idea, we all use his head unless Al has his boat at the gathering.

I just made my reservation for Feb 20-23 (hope that was right) with Ann at the marina.

Concerning the pump out issue, yall are welcome to use my fancy composting toilet! We can even have a seminar!

Baker. While I have been known to check the finger pier but never to check the dock lines but sometimes to check the depth of the water and temperature.

Cardude. Can your head handle 30 plus participants full of beer and other drink combined with good food?

Jack or Steve are we to believe that you would ever disagree with your bunk mate?

It’s beginning and will continue until mid February, God help us all.

I have some reservations about this event. Specifically, I have reservations for Sylphide and I to be there from the 20th till the 23rd. I have no idea if we'll actually make it there by then, but here's to hoping. I'll try to arrive with a well stocked cooler at an acceptable temperature, empty black water tanks, and with my boat shoes under lock and key. Anyone who wants to make their shiny paint and gleaming brightwork stand out is welcome to use my lack of both for contrast.
