poll away, but don't make it a public poll where you see the responders if you hope for honest answers

I don't know how to do that and.........

Who would not be honest on the CF part of the internet?

Really. Someone should tell their mothers otherwise.

Regardless of anyone's disgust with the manner in which someone disposes of urine, it does not represent a threat to health or the environment.


I am onboard a boat with an airhead, have used it since installed just about two years ago. Great gear, but not as good as the Natures Head I put aboard my own boat (but eventually sold since the profile turned out to be too high for me).

Urine going into the ocean... I can not believe anyone is seriously concerned it is a problem, unless a major city (like San Francisco) with a combined sewer system is doing it on a large scale.


I would not pour it in the galley, but a repurposed head sink seems like a reasonable choice.
