Where Credit is Due: July 2011
In regard to the article in the April 2011 issue on a shower solution from Whale Pumps (www.whalepumps.com): I have been looking for a solution to dispensing with galley waste, which I have been accomplishing with considerable frustration using a shower sump/pump that frequently fails and overflows gray water into the bilge. Upon reading the article, I discovered that Whale has two new pumps: the Gulley IC, which is exclusively designed for a shower, and a Galley IC, which is designed for galley sink waste and simultaneously an additional sink or shower drain.
I bought and (easily) installed the Galley IC; it has solved my galley waste issues. I could not be more pleased with this product and solution. Congratulations to Gulley for developing this product and to Practical Sailor for publishing the article.
