Appreciated. All good here. I too have unloaded more than once. Even steven. I will have to go back and see what pirouette you are talking about, that felt a little bit like a back hand, while you are trying to shake the other.

You and I and others just had this discussion. You got all the same answers....
Maybe this is where we see things fundamentally differently. I'm not trying to get new answers, any more than you are being redundant in your support of composters, which you've already posted elsewhere. We can't presume that everyone in these discussions has already proofed every comment of ours in all other threads. I'm just addressing the issues in the present, as some of them are never addressed otherwise. That's a fair "into and out of" as the OP requested.

Please do enlighten us on your experience with marine heads -- you're quite right, they do not have to stink if used properly. Just like using a composting head is no more difficult, even for your squeamish guests, than a standard marine head. Lets move on...
Mike, you just can't pass judgement on people you don't know. I know my guests. They are good people, with good hearts, but are born, raised and live a metropolitan lifestyle. Several composter users have agreed this is an issue, like one above. I know they aren't going to be comfortable using a composter and I offer that simply for consideration to others is fair input, in my opinion.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
