Danger! Marine Head

The attached warning diagram is in a manual from a well respected head manufacturer. Frankly, this particular danger from the marine head had never occured to me. There seem to be so many OTHER reasons to not put your head in a marine toilet that I wouldn't think this warning is required.

As with most such warning labels, I would guess there once was a lawsuit....

Something like that just has to happen once and then we get the mandatory warning sticker.

Eventually our boats are going to have more stickers than a NASCAR racer.

I thought the warning for no barfing up in the head, kind of like no drunks allowed.
