    Looking at a toilet for the boat. Leaning toward the 2.6 gallon instead of 5.3. Opinions?

    I bought one for the Bimini trip just in case....have never used it, and hope not to. So based on that, I'd go with the smallest and cheapest and hope it never gets used.

    My rule....you use it....you empty it! (It is working so far)

    Like Julian I bought one for emergencies but never used it (same rule). Free if you want to pay for shipping. Pm me if interested.

    I purchased this one on Amazon and it fits perfect... the taller ones did not give enough room to sit and the seat area was too small. I did a little research and found one with a large seat area...

    I keep a 4 gal. pail with a lid on the Yamaha, just in case, no seat required. It's main "duty" is a place to keep brushes; sponges, etc. for cleaning the boat. Never needed to use it for #1 or #2, but I keep it there just in case. Store it under port aft cushion just forward of batteries. Head/Storage locker too full with other essentials. The head in the Beneteau has a 50 gal holding tank and we use special paper and chemicals, that breakdown and reduce odor. If at the dock, I will walk back to the restrooms at the club house to just reduce the pumpouts. Without the treatment, a closed up boat in the hot summer sun is not a pleasant place to be. Over time the odor permiates the hoses and they need to be changed.

    The holding tank is 2.6 gallons. We first did purchased the larger tank size but soon found out the the head compartment raised floor area would make it very uncomfortable to sit. The smaller tank size and the larger seat fits perfect. If you pack your head compartment with your gear like most of us do, then there is no need to screw it down. I have had it with the a full clean water tank and gear and it never moved. It’s only for an emergency, so knowing that it’s available makes the wife happy
