Word! Digging catholes using thunderboxes when backpacking is bad enough, I'm trying to imagine me explaining to my wife that the toilet solution I've come up with for the boat is that she uses a bucket with a bag, then zips it up and throws it in the trash....

You've been around boats much longer than me, I was on my first keelboat in the fall of 2009, but... None of the boats I've sailed on have smelled like holding talk. Some have smelled "boaty" like they've been closed up and have a little standing water, but none have smelled like holding tank. Maybe I've just been very lucky.
