Fixing My Marine Toilet System

When I purchased the Rock ‘n Row, it came with some serious serious septic sludge issues in the holding tank. This article and video shows you how I am fixing it. Septic systems and holding tanks are subjects that I never cared to know anything about. However, shortly after purchasing the Rock ‘n Row, I realized that something was amiss with its black water system. I decided to document my ‘adventure’ with marine toilet systems for those poor boaters who are in a similar situation….

One of the best places to watch whales in Puget Sound is along the boarder of Canada and the US, in the bodies of water known as Haro Strait and Boundry Pass. These lie to the north and west of San Juan Island, and is where the resident J, K, & L whale pods are mostly often spotted in summer time.
