Blowing The SanitaryTank

When I was in the Navy, we were not as environmentally responsible as we are now. On every mid-watch at sea, we would blow the sanitary tanks to sea. This required the operator to close about a dozen valves from various waste sources. One of those sources was the Captains stateroom sink.

That was the one I forgot to close. If you are a diesel boat sailor, you know what followed!!!

  1. I was lucky when that same thing happened to me…… His stainless steel sink was hinged up against the bulkhead when I blew #1 Sanitary – everything just splattered against the bulkhead and dribbled down to the deck under that sink instead of creating an ‘Old Faithful’ geyser and spewing the mess everywhere. Downside…..

    The Skipper always kept his shiny brown corframs under that sink….
