When we bought our C-22 last November, it had a 5-gallon pail with a plastic seat and lid that snapped on as a wannabe head. A plastic kitchen sized garbage can liner does the "holding."
It was fastened to the "head alcove" with two strap hooks attached to the "FG pocket" and a stout bungee. It seemed lame - but presuming a day-sail in mixed company would never warrant using the head for "dropping a deuce" - simply the distaff side wanting to "sit" - assumed I could wait and read what others have done in this regard.
Finding only a few archived posts on topic, I decided to scope out the West Marine recent sale flyer and see the "Runabout 962 portable head" currently on sale for 70 bucks. The price was right but of major concern to me, is the front to back "opening" of the throne. Once we switch toilets in our home from "standard" near round openings and installed EB's (extended bowl) styles that are now everywhere, we won't settle for painfully small opening thrones
So I compared the existing 5-gallon "kit" and throne - to the West Marine head and found the Runabout throne is actuallY 1/4" SHORTER - than what I already have! Which is only: 9-1/4"
Am I missing something? Am I the only one that thinks an EB is way more comfortable, way more sanitary, and adds next to nothing to manufacturing costs?
Is there a solution out there for the occasional overnighter?
If so, I'd love to hear from you!
