This book provided just the information I was looking for in a "to the point" style. If you have an older boat with an odor problem, this book will help you diagnose and eliminate the problem. Well worth the money and I'd recommend it to anyone. True to it's title, this book is about getting rid of boat odors....I'm not sure why the person who wrote the negative review thought it was an installation manual.

I recently purchased a used sail boat. Very quickly after getting it to our home port, my wife reprioritized my "to do list" and "get rid of the head odor" came to the top. Should be simple huh? Not really. Peggy Hall stepped me through understanding the problem and gave a clear description of a properly operating / plumbed system. Brand named product recommendations were also a terrific help! I'm 95% complete now and still hoping to get her "back on the boat"...

Peggie has produced an outstanding guide for tracking down and eliminating funky smells on board.

The book is full of factual information and how to's.

The humor is appropriate and quite funny without falling into the obvious traps.

Highly recommended

Wished I would have read the book before things got smelly. This book helped me figure out both problems I was having, smelly hoses and dreadful odor from vent.

Great book! Concise and well written. The author saved me money and problems by not buying a filter for the air outlet from my holding tank (they are expensive and tend to clog up). A West Marine Salesman highly recommended a holding tank filter for my outlet vent. I’ve used some suggestions, especially about keeping by bile dry and clean or when it has some water in it to keep down the smells from dead micro-organisms.

The holding tank odor on my boat was so intense that even the maggots were gagging. Before buying this book I tried frequent pumpouts with back flushes. That worked for a few days each time but the smell came back. I gathered ideas from other boat owners, boat mechanics and salesmen at the local boat store and tried them all. Nothing worked!

In desperation, I bought the book and started doing the recommended solutions. As it turns out, my boat's problem was that spiders were clogging the vent opening. When I got rid of them the odor disappeared.

The book provides solutions to several different types of odors in addition to holding tank odors. It also explains the causes for the odor. In the case of my holding tank, the spiders were blocking oxygen from entering the tank. The bacteria that eliminated the odor needed oxygen to work.

Peggie Hall has long shared her expertise in a number of online fora. From time to time she has spoken at boat shows and similar events. In her book, she has gathered together in one place all the tremendous knowledge she has about black, gray, and potable water systems, and generally keeping your boat smelling nice.

Highly recommended book.
