Actually the bucket is legal as long as its not designed for pee and doesn't have a toilet seat on it it still comes under the loose rules of direct discharge but I still have and use my porta potty for poo underway and on the hook pee is fine but I hate to see floaters in the water I'm anchored in its just not nice to do in port. with just poo I get about a month for my 8 ltr porta potty and pump out stations are all over the place here in Puget sound I use sea water for flushing it
