its a good idea also. every respectable barn have this compost toilet. ive just never think about them as a clever idea. i didnt read the whole thread but i think i need a way to separate the urine from the other stuff else it get too much wet maybe. in the barn toilet the urine just drain into the soil and the dry stuff is mixed with a handfull of sawdust i throw in now and then. every second year i just open the backside of the barntoilet and shuffle out. makes good soil.

hmm. maybe read a bit more about this neat idea and best. it should be fairly easy to make if i manage to solve the problem of too much urine..for guys onboard its seldom any problem while sailing. just lean outside the boat, but you cant really ask girls to use that method on board.
so a kind of toilet should be onboad.

Man...I'd sure think about black and grey water storage capabilities before you send it over the side.....I may just be parinoid...but if you've got the room its worth considering.

Dumping the urine jar is easy - filling up isn't a problem. I'm really glad I made the switch to a composter.

Hi.
So you are doing things with good speed.
You still left out the main part, where are you building?
Do you have any pics on the boat layout?

Keep up the good work.

hi,
im building not far from oslo.
sorry, no layout for the interior. i will probably choose some very basic oldstyle layout with the firestove and everything.

spent last week working on welding up the boat inside. its a little tricky but goes forward slowly. Maybe manage to weld up 1/4 of the inside sofar. Im working alone now due to easter holiday coming up,so itts a little more slow.

by the way. that lamp is a optimus/petromax. Its hardly use any kerosene and gives light similar to 350 candles. Will be the future of lighting up the boat. Extremely clever system.
