Hi

Hirers are usually told to have a pump out each week. This can, of course, be anywhere where such facilities exist, not just Hosseasons affiliated sites. You'll be expected to return your boat with enough available 'capacity' for the new hirers to use straightaway, so a second pump out on the last or penultimate day would be ideal. Haven't hired for a while but guess at £12/15 for both tanks being emptied?

Regards, John G

hi andrew,
andrew your find that you'll probably have to have a pump-out mid/to end of your first week ,and midweek again on your second week, ,prices range from £9.00 for 1 loo to £15.00 for 2 loos , again differant yards charge differant prices around/ within the prices said, also it may help that you decide moor at public stahties they have loo's there on the quayside ,try to keep doing your business in them ,
cheers

Up to last year Summercraft always reimbursed the fortnight hirer against the receipt from the other yard, I do not know if this still is in operation because I haven't been in 2009

It also,of course, depends on the number of crew and how many toilets the boat has..Three of us once hired Sandpiper and we did'nt need a pump at all in two weeks.
As has been said,use toilets ashore as much as possible..Is there a list on this forum telling where all the land based toilets are??...Les.

No, I wouldn't agree with that springchicken. The hire yard expects to pump out the boat before the next hirers board.

It all depends upon how many people you have, in comparison to how many toilets you have & how much you're prepared to use toilets elsewhere. Personally, I'd rather plan to have a pumpout or two (two for a 2 week cruise) & have the freedom to use your on-board toilets whenever you want to.

Price tends to be cheaper per toliet if you have two to be done at a time, so allow £9-£10 for one toilet or about £15 for 2.

Hello all,
Agree with you Broads01, in all the years we've been hiring, we have never been asked to have the boat ready for the next hirers in the pumpout dept. Infact, on a number of occassions, the staff have started doing a pumpout/filling the diesel tank as we were getting off the boat.

If that is the case then I bow to your better judgement. I've always assumed that the reason for instructing the hirer to pump out each week is to alleviate the necessity for the hire yard to do it themselves thus saving time and expense at changeover times.
