Re: Back for more - portapotty vs. manual head

cthoops, That is a very very odd head set-up. I understand your concerns.
Given a choice between carrying a plastic box of my own waste down a dock or opting for a pumpout, gimme a holding tank everytime. You hit on one of the big drawbacks of composting systems- they are too tall for many applications.
The downside of head repairs is that's the head.
The upside is that it is not rocket science.
Is there any way or any place to install a holding tank closer and lower to the head? IN a hanging locker just aft of the v-berth, or under the head itself, or on the cabin sole, under the v-berth, or...
pics would be a big help to find a solution.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere:
