Re: Trash compactor
This is mostly a coastal cruising concept. We don't need to go weeks storing garbage, but often we go beyond the duration of a single bag. We can drop the full bag in a lazz or sometimes in the dinghy, but I don't like it. As for putting garbage in the storage that the supplies were extracted from, that's not viable. Stores are not used linearly. Dry goods come from one place, wet from another, cold, frozen, etc, etc. You don't put garbage back in the fridge, where the food came from.
While many compactors call for 4 to 1 or even 7 to 1 compacting, it would only take a 2 or 3 to 1 compactor to get us by nearly 100% of the time. But I can't find one that fits anyway.
Recall that beyond the desire to limit garbage storage, I'm trying to eliminate the swinging unsightly garbage bag and just looking for storage ideas in general.
