Re: Production buckets and the limits
The best are the 1 gallon flexible black rubber ones with SS handle.
The larger ones hold too much water and you can not pull it back aboard while off shore, so the 1-gal ones work best. Also if you use a bucket for other things (like those that don't have a head etc) a large one encourages too infrequent emptying, and that becomes gross.
The metal and hard plastic ones result in chips, scrapes, broken toes etc while trying to handle when things are rough. But the the black flexible ones have some give.
And the SS handle just makes sense as it doesn't rust and is strong enough to not lose the bucket with a rope tied to it when you toss it over at 7 knots.
Don't blow air up my rear, be useful and blow it at the sails!
