[Amel Yacht Owners] Holding Tank Discharge Lock

Mark Erdos

Removing the handle meets the USCG requirements. It is also recommended to lock the handles away. This further satisfies the requirements.


Another option is to install a small flap door over the opening with the ability to lock the door. A piece of clear Plexiglas works well.




With best regards,

For those of you who are in or have been in US waters, how did you secure the valve for the holding tank discharge? I am puzzled as to an effective way of blocking the lever for the two valves.
