Mark, I was trying to figure out how to say something similar...well no mention of growth hormones, but the majority of women might not need sanitary napkins.....and if it is a day trip they likely have their own equipment. I did laugh out loud at your reply, tho....

After a less than satisfactory experience last weekend with a seasick landlubber I think simple labelling is essential. My system is a 20 year old pump out with not very intuitive graphics to show the switch position for "flush" and "empty". I have an instruction sheet similar to Weyalan's but with a little less detail - and separated the plumbing instructions on the reverse.

The first mate had used the head once or twice before, but was virtually incapacitated by seasickness, and could not get it right this time. Her glasses were in the cockpit so she could not read the instructions. She called up to me to say she could not empty the bowl, so I offered to come down and sort it out, which was declined due to it being "a bit messy".

Little did I know at the time that the bowl was actually full. With the lumpy seas I probably need not go into further detail.

So, in hindsight, I will revise my instructions - using large enough arrows to show FLUSH and EMPTY settings so they can be read without glasses.

Wanna keep them happy? Use your sense of humour and keep them laughing.
Life is too short to be taken seriously.

If you post instructions, I would add:
"Everyone regardless of gender or business needs to sit down before beginning."

Rick-
"Klaatu barada nikto!"
You are SO sci-fi impaired.< G >
You'd better go rent "The Day The Earth Stood Still" and watch it this weekend, before you get us all killed. Those three words, uttered in Washington DC in the 50's, saved the entire planet. Honest, I saw it in the movie. < G >

Which is a true classic, btw.

Tell any day tripper woman you need to supervise their first session. Scares them so much they will go on hold all day.
