Make sure those overboard thru-hulls are capped off, and (f you have one), your Lectra-San is operating properly!
The Volusia County Sheriffs were running potti-patrol just north of Daytona Beach yesterday, stopping all cruising boats going by and giving them the dye-in-the-head treatment. The officer was polite and proper, nothing to complain about at all.

Read with interest your comment that folks should have their thru-hulls locked (capped) and the lectra-san working, if you have one. We have one and it works well, but if a dye tablet is added to the toilet, even after the waste is purified by the lectra-san, the release will still be purple. Pure, but purple. Not something you want the potty patrol or anyone else to see. So if you get a dye tablet inserted, the only thing to do is make sure your boat is pumped out!
