(some of) The yellow tubes had drinking water in them, so I guess they wanted no mistakes.

loo's

I've never used one on a boat but we've got one in the camper for emergency use & i think you'd be fine they're not as 'crappy' as you'd imagine and there's a little trap door you can close so there's less risk of any bounce back whilst bobbing around. In terms of chemicals leaking they're well built & sealed and it doesn't 'niff' anything like i imagined it might. Maybe if it got turned upside down there could be an issue but if this was the scenario whilst it was strapped down in your boat you'd probably have a lot more to worry about... regards AL

Was that pic taken at St Brelades bay by any chance

[QUOTE=ppenman;477542]Hi all,


3. Am I talking a load of cr4p

No I wouldn't say your talking cr4p.
Although you'll be covered in cr4p if you try your idea,

Ribs and loos

On the serious side we use a chemical loo, which is the same design as the one Nick found, works very well. We take the tank and empty it in our loo at home after our trip. I have it fixed in our hurricane 640.

If it is on a Rib I would advise not banging in a nail to hang the paper on.

i) Get some of that 'greaseproof' medicated paper: no-one will ever want to go for a No 2.
ii) Don't flush it/store it. Put a hook in it and use it as bait!

For work I used to have to fly to France for a day at a time. To avoid using the French 'facilities' I got used to managing fifteen hours between wees. (Yes, they
were that bad that possible bladder and kidney problems seemed worth the risk!)

As regards nasty chemicals, if no-one is planning to "take the kids to the pool " then you can get away with a splash of household disinfectant and water. NOT bleach!!

At the heel of the hunt, a portaloo is just a way of convincing a woman that a bucket is a proper toilet, thus enabling them to free a wizz...

I had a proper plumbed in 'head' with valves and all sorts on the old boat.

It lasted about 3 days before it was removed as it took up too much space and in anything apart from a complete flat glassy sea with the boat stopped it was a pain ( and I was not known for ever driving it slowly)

It was replaced by a bucket ( and chuck it) version....
