And if we ever get our old boat 3 miles offshore, bloop!

If you are tired of the stench of old hoses and the extra hole in the boat, and the nasty nasty holding tanks, get one. It rocks.
I probably will get one eventually. I'm just trying to figure it all out and justify the cost of a plastic bucket with a toilet seat on it.
