Yeah, that's biggie. It's hard to interest people in a 3-4 hour boat ride without one of those.
hmm, dunno about where you live, but here on the sf bay, i think a port-o-potty or better is required, and enforced by coast guard inspections. the logic has to do with dumping human waste overboard being illegal, so every boat on the bay has to have its own facilities.

i suppose there must be some min boat length or something associated with this rule, as i dont think dinghies have to comply. every keelboat and larger boat i have seen has something for people to do their business in.
