JUST GOT EASIER
shop about boat heads, pumping out, and no discharge areas is something
almost no one looks forward to doing. No one except the BoatU.S. Foundation,
that is, and we’ve got new tools to make educating boaters about
onboard waste a little easier.
Three handy information
cards are now available: Basics of Boat Heads, Basics of Boat Pumpout, and
Basics of No Discharge Areas. These single-panel
info cards are simple and to-the-point, and lightweight enough to
tuck into a slip bill, staple to new contracts, or post on a marina’s
A Few Ideas for using Basics of Info Cards:
them in your monthly or yearly slip bill
Staple them to new slip contracts
Post them in your Ship’s Store next to the head chemicals
and toilet paper
Publish the information in your marina or yacht club newsletter
Post the info cards on your website
Laminate them and attach them near your pumpout station
Use the information in your next marina or boatyard staff
Post them on your marina bulletin board, or in the bathhouse or laundry
Hand them out at your next yacht club meeting.
Sharing information with your patrons not only gives them valuable
knowledge, it also shows them what you expect at your marina:
clean water and responsible use of their onboard waste facilities.
