Re: Don't Pee Over the Side, Use Your Head

If your dink is in the bowl you donít miss. Thatís the key. Sitting or kneeling it doesnít matter. In a crowded anchorage to avoid the noise of running the head ďif itís yellow let it mellowĒ. Or go for a swim.
Always interested me in the states if you leave the through hull open and pee youíre breaking the law. If you go into the water and pee youíre not.
Been told even poop bugs die in high salinity ocean salt water within 5-6í of dispersal from a macerated discharge. Bugs (even E. coli) canít tolerate the salinity once itís much pass the 0.9 seen in you. Of course not true in brackish water. Still, we donít swim nor run the RO in most harbors unless theyíre pretty much empty and thereís good movement. Probably more an aesthetic decision but better to be safe than sorry. Also donít want any sulfur forming bugs on my filters.

Another good thing about a composting head Ö everyone must sit, all the time.

I do pee over the side sometimes. I try not to do it within view of others. My boatís multiple shrouds and wide side decks make it pretty easy, even under way.

Why go fast, when you can go slow.

Raise your hands.....how many have seen sail boaters (especially Europeans) in an anchorage peeing or the other thing over the side or from their scoop? Why make it about power boaters?

Capt.....ok Iíll connect the dots for you......I never see them doing peeing overboard in harbors from their SeaRays only from the runabout skiffs. From that I assume most of them use their onboard heads. Thatís my point. 😄😄

For what itís worth Itís not about power boaters. I certainly have no animus about them. Some of my best friends have them😀😀😀

Sorry. I guess it's about where we sail. I see so few runabout skiffs down here.
The rampant prejudice about 'stink potters' on the sailing sites does get to me a bit, so perhaps I'm a bit quick to defend. We see many, many more ignorant, incompetent and rude sailors down this way than motor boat operators.

No worries. To me people enjoy the water the way they like to. Respect for other boaters is important to me. There are many commonalities sailors and power-boaters share. There are many differences. The one commonality is the love of the water
