Recommendation for a Portable Head

If there's already a thread for this question, please send me in the right direction.

We need to replace the portable head that came with our 1975 Douglas & McLeod 22. The space near the v-berth is large enough to accommodate most shape and sizes, and there is no track or fitting that we have to match. We're just looking for something that's reliable, so there's no drama.

Recommendations?

Thanks.

I did a bucket, plastic bio-bags and kitty litter. Separate bucket with lid to store said plastic bags until disposal.

Losing the porta-potty.

I'd say gut it, and try the plastic bags and kitty litter. Honest, the "clumping" kind absorbs anything and leaves no odor. Use a handful in a bag, tie the bag after use...and in the big boxes kitty litter is cheap, too. Zero cleanup, just tie the bag and toss it.
