Another SOL Story

Thanks to all who posted on this thread. I just went through a SOL situation on my friend's American Tug 41 "Admiralty". After reviewing this thread I now understand why.

Your question has probably been answered, but in case not, this happened to me once: Neither the overboard pump nor then dockside (pumpout station) pump would work. Turns out that a delivery captain had clogged the vent line (by completely overfilling the holding tank), so when trying to pump out with the onboard pump (and with the deck cap in place, as it normally is), the clog prevented the onboard pump from sucking anything out. Similarly, with the deck cap open the pumpout station wouldn't work. I finally got the idea of putting water into the vent cap and using the on board pump at the same time. Worked fine, until I put the deck cap back in place. Finally it dawned on me that the vent line was clogged.
