There's no "squares" limit on our boat. Just like at home, feel free to use whatever it takes.

So that explains the rank smell. We thought it was just your residual body odor! (You know, being a live-aboard and all.)

Which locker did you hide it in?

Yes!

No baggies or sanitary wipes (they're cloth and get jammed in the blades), but I think it came from Asplundh and can handle just about anything else. Combined with decent suction, it's best to be well clear when you hit the switch.

I don't flush the paper and I am surprised with the poll results. All my boating friends do the same. The small inox (or plastic) container on the head is the place everybody put the papers (inside a plastic bag). Around here, only no boaters on a boat flush the papers.
