A milk carton is a throw away item.
Not really - A pukka bailer will not stand on end unassisted while being used to dispose of last nights curry !

If I were in that much trouble, I'd not be on a 'heads-free' boat.

I used one of these on a boat I borrowed in the summer and it was great. Shifts a lot of water really easily.

Joking aside it has many uses emergency portaloo only being one. I often use it to store small items like fishing gear, tool roll etc. But in an emergency it shifts a lot of water quickly. Worth while the sacrifice of the can.
