Ain't boating grand!?
If you were on the hook, surely the next thing would be jumping over the side, then rinsing with that tea-cup of fresh?

In all seriousness, I'd get serious about protective gear if you haven't already. Get a 3M respirator mask that accepts different filters (just start with the pink discs for particulates for sanding and dusts and the organic vapor catridges for paints and epoxy).

If you have a good mask, some goggles (use sunglasses when approrpriate instead), and some nitrile gloves you can work with almost anything and you'll feel fine afterwards (minus psychological scarring of working in feces). Total investment is maybe ~$50.

Anytime I work with chemicals these days I google the MSDS for them and check what catridges I need.

I really noticed a difference in my lungs when I have a proper filter.

Oh charming, great, thats just bloody marvelous.
Ive just come home, cooked supper and sat down to eat, scanning mail and messages as I go, and then this.

Ive half a plate of unfinished potato salad and roast chicken that might just as well go straight down the pan now.

Hey fella, its a crap job, but someone has to do it and im glad its not me, but im not going to laugh just in case its my turn one day.
No point tempting fate.

Here is a little tip. Never ever open a thread titled feces while eating.

Here's another tip: Never investigate a bad smell in the head. Just quickly sell the boat

I guess I won't be putting down new floor boards and will just leave the toilet cubby bare fiberglass. That way the next time this happens there will be less to rip up.
I read this and have to shake my head thinking that the objection I hear most often to the idea of composting is the yuck factor.

Ok maybe two years is a bit of an exaggeration. Truth be told I have no idea where this f'ing sewage came from. I am really hoping it is not from the new head. It really doesn't smell that much I think part of the stench is from the rotting wood. I swear to god though: the manufacture used more marine sealant around this area than I ever knew possible. How he missed the one teeny crack that led to my beautiful flooring's demise is beyond me. I think I might grout in some nice tiles to replace it. Maybe just to throw in a little irony. I am a sad smelly man.

I remember the first nasty my son blew up his back. I held him by his feet and washed him in the tub. Five years and another child later, blowouts didn't even faze me. You'll get used to it, but use gloves.

The timing of this story is so interesting as my sailing buddy, who is in the "Boat Poop Pumping" business, was emptying his holding tank after his head was clogged by a Burrito eating friend. The head still did not work after a good pump out. He went back to the pumping station and pumped..flushed with fresh and pumped till it was empty! so he thought.....Head still not working, he started to dismantle and remove the toilet. What he did not know was that his holding take was partitioned by 20 years of built up poop, paper and sanitary napkins.(it was a club boat for 20 years)..His pumping and flushing weakened the wall of poop that held back a mass of fermented excrement....it started gushing up through the hole where the toilet had just been removed...into the bilge it went...the pump could not remove it due to the materials viscosity, so he had to start shoveling it with a bail bucket. This was in the marina!!! Listening to his frantic calls for help on my voice mail... RAOTFLMAOPIMP...there was no way I was going to come to his rescue. So, I'm looking for a new handle for him...since hes in the holding tank pumping bizz...I call him a Fecesist? Poopologist? How about the study of Craptology? Got it..if its old poop....Paliocraptology? Ok, ok....Slogan for his Burgie...."I'm number one..and number two"!! How about a Burgie with Betty Boop on it...singing "Poop Poop Pee Poop!" God I hate me sometimes. Sorry...just had to share this.
