Let me jump in here with my 2 cents worth. As far as using a bucket; I don't have a problem with that. I do it all the time on my little Windrose. But I avoid carrying it down the dock and past my friends by simply taking the Double Dooty or Wag Bag and putting them into a garbage bag. Have a Porta Pot on the Catalina but have only used it in extreme emergencies. The Hunter has a head and I can't keep the Grandkids and women from using that.
