it just occured to me.... one benefit of a smaller bowl is that it would make you look better endowed. kind of like a gal with small hands....

Great, finding a female companion to sail in a tiny sailboat is hard enough Now, I need to find someone petite with small hands This is an impossible task since they all become BBW.

You could subdivide your elimination routine into stages, and reposition your frame before each stage, so as to provide optimal access to the exhaust vent associated with that stage.

I thought they can be in a parallel process. Let me investigate this in next 24 hours. Ooops, too much information here.

You're doing it wrong. You sit on the bowl and clutch a bucket between your knees to accomodate the overflowing bits.
Then empty the bucket in the bowl.
Simple when you know how.

Morning wood....slam the door on it

instead of the bucket for the liquid just use a bottle, empty then store in the head cupboard for next time.

print this picture and hang it above the head. Morning wood is no longer a problem.

This.

It's a little gross but you do what you have to do. Gatorade bottles are good because of the wide mouth. Makes for easier use on groggy mornings or drunken trips to the head.

Yes. If you don't have one available, you can take a smaller water bottle (disposable/recyclable kind) and cut off the top. Then cut three or four longitudinal slits and fold the resulting flaps down and outward. Outward is important.

Also makes a great makeshift receptacle when single-handing with no autopilot.
