Vaucu-Flush is want you want. Uses fresh water from your holding tank so no sea water smell. Flushes real quick. Pump out at most any marina. But on most boats like what you are looking at; the holding tank is small. So get a macerator, then when your offshore, open the valve, throw a switch, and the holding tank is emptied out. With macerator, the overboard discharge is only cloudy looking water.

Any luck on a 340?

Ha! "dump truck"
I get it!

Irony is, I'm sitting with my wireless laptop typing this right now on my elongated-bowl porcelain throne of choice. "getting my thoughts together".

Potty Humor.

I got a PortaPot in my Formula, and while it is better than nothing, it ain't nuthin compared to the VacuFlushes in the Sea Ray. If anybody is running a Porta John, though, it REALLY helps to use the toilet treatment chemicals in it. If you got wimmen on board they can pee in it several times and the smell is GONE with the use of the chemicals. I keep the Porta John ready to go all the time, but prefer to use it only when "necessary". The one I got is not too much of a chore to clean out. And it seals up tight so no shmelly smell. Seems that whenever somebody brings kids on board, the first thing they want to do is cr#p in the PortaJohn. I politely explain the method of how to clean the PJ to the parents when that occurs.

SeaLand or equivalent treatment chemicals (the blue kind) work extremely well and I recommend you folks to use them. If you use them chems you will find that your head situation dramatically improves and you won't be so uptight about folks using it.

Granted, if kids and women are not on your boat alot and you have access to a large boat with a real head, or are close to marinas then don't even let people know you hav a john. If kids and women and no marina access is your norm, then it really makes the day go easier if you have a sytem in place for taking care of business.

OOps, time to flush.
Everybody have a nice day!
