WM 972 PortaPotty

Anyone ever used one of these?

West Marine: 972 Portable Flushing Toilet Product Display

is 2.6 gallons ridiculous. Would two people put that out in a day pretty easily? Not to get too gross or anything. I am afraid that is all we can fit in our little boat.

We (2) used a Thetford Porta POTTI Porta Potti 135 for several years on La Petite, our 23 foot Ericson. It worked really really well as long as we could empty it every couple of days.

Never ever had an odor problem from the unit ... ever.

I bought the larger one of those for the old boat. While it is hard to get too excited about portable toilets, I liked it a lot. Works as advertised.

I got mine through Defender.

I know which makes it weird that this seems to be the only aspect of refitting the boat I can get my girlfriend into. She's really excited about this thing. We had to watch the West Marine video twice.

Make no mistake about it I do not relish adopting someone else's commode there is something entirely unholy about that.
