ENGINE ROOM AND BILGE CLEANING

Bilges are a major source of marine pollution because bilges tend to collect engine oil, fuel, anti-freeze, and transmission fluid, to name only a few pollutants. When these fluids are pumped overboard, usually by automatic bilge pumps, they have a major negative environmental impact.
Regular bilge cleaning prevents corrosion caused by the saltwater environment and also prevents the collection of potentially dangerous fumes.
'CLEAN THE BILGES... YOUR BOAT STINKS!'
No boat owner wants to hear those words. But if you've noticed a musty, damp smell when aboard your vessel or a foul odor when the wind shifts ... then it's time to take care of that disgusting cocktail that's been sloshing around below deck.

THE MOST IMPORTANT REASONS TO KEEP YOUR BILGE CLEAR ARE:

  • - Prevent rust and corrosion of equipment that lies in the bilge
  • - Avoid negative environmental impact

DO AND DON'T

Engine oil tends to accumulate in bilges. If no precautions are taken, the oil is pumped overboard along with the bilge water. Discharging oily water is illegal.
Don't Pollute: Remember that it is illegal to pump oily discharge overboard. If you find oil in your bilge water turn off the bilge pump and find an alternative way of disposing of the oily water. Don't think just because there is only a little bit of oil it is okay. The test for illegal pollution is simply a "visible sheen" on the water.
The United States Coast Guard requires that a vessel's bilge be kept "reasonably clean." What's more, boat operators can face heavy fines should they pump oily bilge water out of the vessel and into the waterways. In fact, a boat operator can be fined for illegally polluting waterways if an even a small amount of contaminants ... just a visible sheen ... is seen floating atop the water near a boat. Fines have been known to exceed $20,000 for dumping oily bilge solution into the water.
