Thank you Brent, but I have used a NORMAL head underway more than I care to admit and I know exactly how it feels. I am however, referring to a COMPOSTING HEAD where liquids are supposed to go one way and solids another. Things change at an angle of heel that could influence its operation, therefore, pee could end up in the bucket, a thing you try to avoid. I am just trying to understand if a COMPOSTING HEAD facing athwartships would cause any issues. I think the question in the OP refers to this issue, not about ergonomics.
