Some marinas that cater to a fishing

(and those can be gross) so make sense.
We also WANT a liquid holding tank
for this head because we've found ourselves at anchor
in a remote
area that we don't want to empty a liquid tank in (not to mention it's not legal
if you're not 3 miles offshore). The solid tank can go 6 weeks with both of us using it, no problem but since we only have two liquid tanks
for the composting head, our time at a single
anchorage is limited to less than a week unless we find a public bathroom nearby (not likely when remote
anchored) to dingy the tank to and empty it. We have friends who have one of those portable holding tanks (looks like a dolly on wheels) for this reason. We just don't have a place to stash it. So the holding tank serves two purposes for us--one for this marina and the second for when we're in a remote anchorage.
