Overview

This is the completely-updated 2nd Edition of Peggie Hall's famous book "Get Rid of Boat Odors." "The New Get Rid of Boat Odors, 2nd ed." by Peggie Hall, known by many of her fans as "The Headmistress," will teach you how to eliminate annoying odors on your boat by treating the source instead of perfuming the symptoms. It covers all aspects of marine sanitation as well as other odor-causing problems like dirty bilge areas in an easy to understand format. The focus is to instruct the reader on how to resolve odor problems, not just disguise them. In addition there are extensive appendices providing detailed contact information on equipment manufacturers and schematics of most major brands and models of marine toilets that will allow the reader to make necessary repairs with a high degree of confidence. This second edition contains many new schematics not found in the original book. "The New Get Rid of Boat Odors" is a book for boat owners or professionals in the boat industry alike. It's the most comprehensive guide available to help solve the widespread problem of annoying odors on boats.

About the Author

Peggie Hall is nationally recognized in the boating industry as one of the few experts in marine sanitation, and is often referred to as "the Head Mistress." She has written a number of articles for major boating magazines, is often asked to speak at conferences and conduct seminars for various organizations and at major boat shows, and has been a consultant to a number of state agencies. For more than 20 years she also hosted plumbing and sanitation forums on many online boating sites, beginning even before the internet as we know it today existed with the Sailing Forum on CompuServe. Her comprehensive article "Marine Sanitation: Fact vs. Folklore," first published in 1994, was long considered the most definitive guide to US marine sanitation laws, various types of sanitation equipment, proper installation, operation, maintenance and odor control ever written. Her book "Get Rid of Boat Odors! - A Boat Owner's Guide to Marine Sanitation Systems and Other Sources of Aggravation and Odor," was the first, and still the only, book ever written devoted entirely to that subject and has been a best seller, not only in the U.S., but in every English speaking country. She first entered the marine business in 1987, when she formed Peal Products, which was the first company in the marine industry to focus exclusively on onboard sewage management issues and the elimination of odors on boats. In addition to the Peal Products line of environmentally friendly sanitation and cleaning products (which were soon given outstanding performance ratings by Powerboat Reports and Practical Sailor), Peal Products was a distributor for every major U.S. manufacturer of marine toilets, MSDs, and related equipment and accessories. As a member of ABYC, she was a member of a sanitation project technical committee formed to establish a standard for sanitation equipment and installation onboard from its inception in 1991 through 1996. In 1999 Mrs. Hall sold the Peal Products product line to Raritan Engineering, a major manufacturer of sanitation equipment. She is now an independent consultant.

Her opinions are her own and her recommendations are based on her own experience and that of boat owners over several decades.
