Re: Any C-Head Users?

I don't know where you get the idea that my mind is firmly made up. I find all solutions to have their pros and cons. Picking used TP out of a head with chopsticks is a clear con in my book. You've detailed some pros too and I agree with them.

However, a holding tank does not have to stink. Period. They only do when managed incorrectly, such as ever adding anything like an antistinkum liquid. Just like a C-head will stink, if managed incorrectly.

As far as I'm concerned, they are both viable options. I chose the holding tank because I believe the significant number of non-sailor guests we have aboard find it more comfortable.

If you've ever noticed me push back on this subject before, its usually focused on those that say there is absolutely, positively, hands down, no odor or anything objectionable about a c-head. That's nonsense, but you didn't say that. I was only referencing the irony between calling a holding tank icky (which it is), in the same paragraph where the user must reach in and handle used TP.

For me, and perhaps only me, its like finding dried up used TP on the sidewalk and picking it up with chopsticks. Icky.
