Personally I consider flush toilets and absurd thing to have on a boat
..... One of those features of modern life that never really belonged on yachts, and has resulted in some really disgusting situations......... composting makes sense in enclosed waters.... off shore "bucket and chuckit" or "direct deposit" makes the most sense.... Human waste in the open ocean is NOT a pollutant any more than that of marine
mammals or fish
.... pollution is a function of concentration as a rule
. Most of the things we regard as "pollutants" are only pollutants because they are concentrated in a small area.
Bravo on eliminating through hulls..... My ambition is to have a boat
with ZERO through hulls..... which is realistic with a catamaran
, but not with a monohull
.... Sea water cooling
is a real trouble spot on any engine
....There are a lot of arguments against radiators on boats, but anything in contact with sea water
will get fouled, and is subject to corrosion
..... I've toyed with all kinds of ideas.... Considering the low horsepower in many boats, it should not take a lot to cool them...
