For the past 15 summers, the Coalition’s R/V Baykeeper® has visited Cuttyhunk Harbor to service boats in need of pumpouts. In those years, we’ve removed a total of approximately 25,000 gallons of sewage from nearly 2,000 boats. Because of the high demand for pumpouts, we’re now working with the town of Gosnold to establish a permanent boat waste pumpout station on Cuttyhunk.
