Environmentally Sound Practices in the Marina Industry: Summer Operations: Chapter 03: Fueling Techniques
Chapter Abstract: This is clip 3 of 7 for this video. Spills, splashes and overflows can pollute a marina instantly. Encourage boaters to exit boat during fueling. Stop all power and heat sources. Close all hatches. Maintain tight contact between nozzle and fuel pipe. Check bilge for fuel odors. Ventilate compartment until these odors have dissipated. Clarify the type of fuel being sold. Provide oil absorbent pads to catch and backsplash or overflow. Containers can be provided to catch and overflow from the vents and prevent it from reaching the water surface. Fuel boats at the start of trips only to 90% of tank capacity.
