ABSTRACT
The article discusses the uses of plastic pails onboard a boat. In addition to making a good on-deck waste basket, according to the authors, they make a great boat-washing bucket, since they have no metal parts. The authors suggest that, when emptying the bucket, one should pour it out on the dock and not directly into the water.
