Well at least at sea the wake wash system would make it a squeaky clean dinner for the sharks.....

I guess I should eat shark repellent.

However, seriously, this system really would not even come close to working for cruising offshore, I mean you would have baggies made of plastic which you most definitely would not dump at sea.

Re: Dry Flush head installation/use experience?

It seems to me the Dry Flush is an intermediate step in the evolution process of waste handling. The Air Head (composting head) appears to be a quantum further along in the evolution as it needs no bags and no handling of "fresh waste" , only handling the dried waste. If I had to go with Dry Flush or Air Head my choice would be the composting Air Head. Just my opinion, of course.

"Night soil is a euphemism for human excrement collected at night from cesspools, privies, etc. and sometimes used as a fertilizer.[1] "

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Night_soil

Common practice to empty the bedpan into the rice fields in China, Korea, Vietnam...you've got a billion people eating that rice and that's not the only part of the world that's been doing this for umpteen thousand years.

It may not be fertilizer, but the farmers think it is. So be generous, give it to them.

I meant, raw sewage is not fertilizer at all.

No one said it was good fertilizer, just that some folks would be quite happy to take it.
