Until our latest boat, I always had a "regular" head w/holding tank. Had to replace ALL the plumbing on the last boat it smelled so bad. So, when we bought VENUS she came sans head and holding tank. In order to put the boat into cruising condition right away, I just went out and bought a porta-potty w/a 5-gal holding tank. I gotta tell ya, while it's not exactly glamorous to haul the tank up to the porta-potty dump and pour out the contents (I cruise w/3 women aboard...), it sure is easy.
AND IT NEVER STINKS!!!!!!
Anyway, IMHO they are great options for smaller boats as long as you are coastal cruising where there are dumping stations. Of which there are a lot around here.
