If you feel this way, fine.... The next time you're out eating in a nice restaurant, be sure to first use their public restroom urinal to wash your hands prior to dining.

I don't have any issues with anyone dumping human pee in the ocean; but I do however, take issue with pee being poured into a galley sink where hands, dishes and utensils are washed and food is prepared. That's just gross, no matter how you look at it.

Again, I'm not being judgemental here.... to each their own.... but I do find it rather hard to believe that there are so many posts on this thread debating the merits of dumping gallons of pee into the kitchen sink, and find it alarming that so many agree with the practice of doing so.

Re: Dump Airhead urine in galley sink?

Maybe if you dove the bottoms of most marinas, you'll see for yourself that not many creatures are alive or thriving besides crabs and eels like fish. Rocks are covered with "slime"; where do you think it came from? Mauritz

Kenomac...there are a few people who still do not understand what is the big deal about any of this; ignorance is bliss, indeed! (Hospitals exist because people violate the laws of physics and undermine their hygiene.) Mauritz

Totally agree. I don't see how you can justify urinating in the galley sink...

Re: Dump Airhead urine in galley sink?

What I fail to understand is why, if the OP is in a marina, he wouldn't simply use the marina's lavatories? Geeze, how hard/complicated is that? Offshore is one thing, but in a marina? How 'bout a little consideration for others, eh?

It's part of the "roughing it" cult on CF, i.e. if you're not roughing it enough then you're not macho enough to be on a boat. Eat cold beans straight from a can, do without fridge, pee in the sink, spend less than $50 a month, it's all part of that.

There's some, who have been spoiled during their land-based period and they have fridge, freezer, stove, oven, microwave, hifi, Apple computers and, here it comes, toilets that are used to get rid of your pee and poop instead of you needing to take it out of them (!?). How backwards some can have understood the principle of a toilet; soon we'll see them cooking their garbage!

Don't get me wrong, I can "rough it" with the best of them, but urinating in the galley sink when there is a useable head on board just doesn't make sense. Why not just urinate overboard to begin with? Why would you want to "sh*t where you eat?"

.

Dump it down a cockpit drain. Congrads on the airhead, much better than dealing w/ pumpouts

All in all, although I see it gross too, perception is what makes it tabu.
Folks, urine is sterile, same are tear drops, safer to drink then any tap water. Any nurse can confirm that. Girls, please do!

I'm the OP and I have no intention of staying in any marina on a regular basis.
I can see a couple of situations where dumping the urine in marina waters would be justified (in my mind anyway).

1) It's a dark and stormy night and my urine jug is full. Sorry, but Im not getting dressed in foulies just to take a piss.

2) I've thrown my back out again.

3) I'm sick from flu

4) it's the wee hours of the morning and I've got to go now!

Believe me, I'm in the spoiled gang and am more of the "roughing it smoothly" kind, but as I understand it, peeing overboard isn't as "bad-ass" as in the sink.

I find the whole composting toilet anti bad-ass, more for tree-huggers I thought, but I guess the roughing-it crowd compensates by dumping contents in the environment just like the good old flush overboard toilets.

Logic not much, there is!

What if you just pissed in your fridge, let it freeze, and then threw it overboard so it just floated, that way you'd be achieving "badass" status by pissing where you're not supposed to, and bottom cleaners such as the guy in this thread could see the iceberg of piss heading towards them and take evasive action. Win win!

Indeed. Geeks could even put an AIS beacon on it so that it can be tracked on the plotter!
