Red face This is a really dumb question, but...

This is a really dumb question, but where do you empty those darn porta-potties? Do you have to go to a marina, or just dump it in the toilet?

As many years of boating I have, I've never used one before. Sorry guys....

Most marinas have pump out stations that they may or may not charge for. Now that I think about it, I guess you might be talking about the little removable ones... Seems like it would be a little too much for a toilet to handle. Just my thoughts.

We had one in my 24 Sleekcraft and would dump it in the toilet after every trip or before dependinding upon size of our group (usage).
Well, my EX would.. I gagged so badly I almost threw up when I first did it and spilled it all over the bathroom floor.

We had indoor/outdoor carpeting in the home bathroom..

The toilet handles it fine. It's just a lttle urine. Right?
Never let anyone doodoo in it.

It's a good job for the wife!

i had to use the porti potti on my baot once. There is along horrible but pretty humorous story that goe swith this. Suffice it to say eth baot was on a the trailer and i had no choice coudlnt; hold it and there was no otehr facility. ANd one of my asshoel buddies (who was 30 minute slate and i was waiting for) shows up and is like where the hella r eyou? so i yelled back crapping in the cabin.

he realized teh keys were in teh ignoition of teh truck and summarily started it up and drove down the road. WIth the boat in tow with me on e the crapper. Yeah i was justa little pissed. He was on eth ground laughing....

point being there is generally a smaller storage tank on eth bottom of them you can remove and dump in a normal toilet. I'd recommened hosing it out and rinsing it a few times after you dump it.
