All and all it does seem rather unusual that on this glorious occasion of holiday season one of the main topics (50 + posts) running through our minds is which A-Wipe is best to use aboard our beloved boats!
Art, you have a point, but believe me…there is absolutely nothing half so destroying of a happy Xmas cruise, than a clog in the whatsit, especially if one has guests aboard. So I put it to you it is indeed a worthy topic for examination at this time.
Merry Xmas and a clog free New Year to all..!

Seems wise to have some good-sized buckets (with lids!) in case the toilet(s) fail(s).

Shouldn't the question be "Where did we ...?"

Best guess for an answer is a "rocket box."

I wanted to stop in and drop off a couple of points

#1....

#2....


That's about it.


P.S. If anyone would like to buy some super duper certified and tested marine/RV toilet paper cheap (like half what you are paying now) pop me a message. I will make ya a hell of a deal, shipping and handling are of course extra.






From my head owners manual (Raritan Marine Elegance).



• No special toilet paper is required.
• Water should appear in the bowl within ten
seconds. If not, see troubleshooting section.
• Hard objects or stringy substances (paper towels,
feminine hygiene products, filter cigarettes, etc.)
must not be thrown into the toilet as they will cause
damage.
• Always shut off seacock(s) before leaving the boat
unattended.

What a great thread, I am enjoying reading this daily. I never thought it would have taken off like this but you know my son (four years old) has read a book when he started potty training,
"Everyone poops." So it stands to reason we're all knowledgeable about the subject.

Everyone Poops | Potty Training Concepts

Good info - I will be purchasing several brands and comparing. So far I have three and will add another cheaper brand and will post the results.

I'm a long-time sailboater, but I have to agree. Use the right sort of toilet paper, flush well, and there is absolutely no problem at all. I can't imagine saving my used toilet paper in a little baggie, just to avoid the need to buy the right sort of really cheap toilet paper.

This box contained the poop from 12 people deposited over four days. It's a two-man job to move.

So who uses TP anymore? Thought real men used grass and leaves. Look forward to the next profound discussion on this site. Lordy Mercy!

Only in Alaska. . . . . For some it sounds like a bidet will become a standard fixture on boats if they ever stop making cheap TP !!

Experiment

Last night I decided to conduct my own experiment and see what a few different brands would do in a short period of time. I started at 6pm with one cup of water in each container and one single square of each brand. After 12 hours and two shakes (about six inches from the counter) these are the results.
