Sorry, not as of yet...Life will be busy/complicated for the next while, but will give it a good search for the relevant section when things settle down.

I said, "So, the desiccating toilets discussed here would be considered 'temporary storage' by Transport Canada and okay in pleasure craft under 15 tons."

Isn't that exactly what one does with the C-Head? It uses a regular one gallon plastic water container to hold the urine, and a removable five gallon plastic bucket to hold the peat moss, coconut husk, and/or cedar shavings plus poo.

Apparently, as I've never used one of these devices, the solid waste gets removed, bagged, and disposed of about every couple months, or every week or so in the case of the C-Head. This would meet the definition of "temporary storage" above, yes?

You should see the Grizzly crap on the road to the marina these days...some of them are piled 7 to 8 inches high and are as big around as dinner plates
