is it that hard to beleive that other people have other points of view?
I mean what if your autopilot failed, and you lost something oevrboard, or your sail got stuck, or whatever I mean there are infinite scenarios...yet you think there will ALWAYS be a chance to go down into the head and sit down and take a pee?
its not all about what I think...we must always see other points of view
I think if it were me and I was in that situation a simple solution is just pee on the cockpit floor. Simple matter of flushing it off with a bucket when you get a chance. Simple and safe.
Doesn't get much simpler than something like a painter's cup... attach a light lanyard to dip it in the drink for a rinse...
A plastic dinghy bailer could serve a double function, as well...
Never ceases to amaze, or amuse, how complicated some can make something as simple as taking a leak... :-)
