Re: Marine Toilet (good, bad, and ugly)

Add a vent. A 1-hour project at worst. Two fittings and some hose.

Find a convenient pump-out. Which "bay?"

This doesn't seem as complicated as we are making it. And BTW, I'm quite sure you can't find residual head odor on my boat. Yes, my last boat had a porta-head. Pumping out is easier.

The problem is some folks don't feel they should need to think through the head, as it doesn't make the boat go. It is certanly simpler than other boat systems, such as engines, but it's given no value or attention. Frustration rules pointlessly. Follow manufacturer advise and you'd be surprised.
