Re: Historical question: toilet on small yacht?

msd's (marine sanitation devices) were not required in the US before the Federal Water Pollution Control Act of 1956, also known as the clean water act.
100 years ago, any on board head (toilet) would be plumbed for direct discharge overboard.
No bucket?
Wing it.
