I think you're talking about the dragon fly.

http://www.dragonflymarine.com/


They are currently using it on the Indian River Queen but we don't currently have any gaming vessels going out.

I don't think they make one big enough for the big daddy cruise ships but.....THOSE ships have technology available that would allow them to release only tertiary treated water( the same type water we use on our lawns) but there aren't any ships using that technology out of our port either accept maybe RCI.

they were suppose to change their systems onver a couple of years back  but I'm not sure if they ever did.

I'd love to find out I'm wrong.

Come sail.....The Polluter Of The Seas LOL
