However, the discharge tube from the holding tank comes out the top with a fill tube to the bottom. Therefore, gravity can't dump it into the bilge. Nevertheless, a leak would be bad.

Porta potties can also be great alternatives to holding tank/ sewage repairs. I have all three systems on my boat.|

So is there a better alternative besides a cedar bucket?
Centerboard: Inaccessible moving parts surrounded by salt water.
Macerator: Inaccessible moving parts surrounded by raw sewage.
There's a common theme there.
