Pump out fitting for Hershine Trawler.

I'm heading south this summer with the Schooner Cove Y.C. and will require a male camlock fitting to attach to the pump out station's hose. I haven't had the necessity to do this before as I generally travel far up north where there are no P.O. stations. The deck fitting appears to be metric, it's close to 1 3/4inches in diameter with 16 T.P.I. Is there anyone out there that has hooked their Taiwanese trawler up to the pump out, if so how did you do it?? If I could get ahold of a fitting, I could modify it to work. The only fittings here are the standard 1 3/4 in. pipe threads

My Taiwanese trawler deck fittings are Perko. No problemo. Maybe time (easiest) to change out your deck fittings.

That is what I did, after much searching for a camlock adapter for my metric thread pumpout fitting I bought a new Std. one for about $40.00 about an hour later it was installed on the deck, on the existing hose and has solved the problem.

I picked up several fittings at Grainger for just a few bucks each.

Thanks for your reply. The fittings you acquired, were they metric? If so, that would be great. Would you mind passing on more info for Grainger?

Thanks.

are you sure you need to connect to the threads? I do my boating mostly in the Delaware River, Bay, Chesapeake Bay and Jersey shore and have not required a threaded connector in a few years. All of the pump out hoses have a suction cup on the end that you just hold over your fitting.

I have heard horror stories about these suction cup devices not being connected properly and spewing smelly stuff all over the deck. Being the first time at doing this, I do not know what to believe. It would be great if it would work.
Thank you.

The flexible nozzles work just fine, you just need to keep pressure on them. At most pumpout stations in Washington State you will only find the flexible nozzles. Some stations may have the camlock adapters and will probably have three or four different threaded adapters for your use. If you have never pumped out here's the technique:

1. Open up your deck mounted waste fitting.
2. Unspool enought of the hose from the dock to reach the boat.
3. Insert the flexible nozzle into your waste fitting.
4. Turn on the valve at the nozzle (on is parallel to the hose flow direction, off is perpendicular to flow).
5. Have your first mate push the green "on" button located on the pumpout pedestal.
6. Keep downward pressure on the flexible nozzle while the waste is removed.
7. When all the waste is out of the tank you will see bubbles and air evident throught the transparent view portion at the nozzle. Tell your firstmate to turn off the pump by pressing the red "off" button.
8. Now turn the valve 90 degrees to close.
9. Return the hose to the pedestal.
10. Close your deck port.

Thank you one and all for the great feedback, I'm probably worrying too much. I like the idea of pumping out rather than dumping. However, up here in Canada, particularly farther up north the pump out stations are few and far between. I have a large holding tank and can wait till we are well out in open water before dumping.

Thanks again.

Edson sells a lot of pump out adapters.
Waste Deck Fittings & Adapters : Edson Pump Store
All of the pump out stations I've visited in South Florida use the rubber nozzle fittings on the end of their hose. You just stick them in the deck fitting and turn on the suction.

Here's a pic of the one left on the boat by the previous owner. Looks like he had two pieces pressed together.

Do any of these have metric male threads so they can screw into a deck fitting with female metric threads?

Deck fitting.

Thanks Tom, I have just sent an email to see if they have a fine thread version.

Jleonard, Thanks for that, The picture shows exactly what I would do if I could find an another Taiwanese (fine thread) deck fitting. It's not s difficult thing to modify, a lot easier than change the whole deck fitting.

Steve it sounds like you are possibly describing hose threads not metric. Hose is straight tapped rather than tapered and often confused with metric. I have also found hose threads to come in various "seemingly" odd sizes.

don't necessarily think metric...a lot of Taiwanese boats have weird british threads on their threaded rod. 1/2 inch 12 tpi (British Standard Whitworth (BSW) instead of 1/2 13 tpi....transon zincs, stuffing boxes both rudder and prop shaft, mast bolts, etc..etc..

the moral is...look further or buy the flexible snoot adapter that most marinas use anyhow. Even a bit of dribble or splashing can't be as bad as some of the threads ya gotta read around here...
