Crapper invented the flushing toilet. Peggy's question was about the marine version.

Prefer the last wipe with some witch hazel on the paper. I'm not ready to trust instant-dissolving paper for that task. Regardless, do it my way (tissue in the waste basket) on my boat, thank you.

Nooo, he didn't. And to further burst your bubble, the term "crap" was around long before Crapper was born...it actually means the husk of grain or chaff, residue from boiling fats, dregs of beer making...etc. WWI soldiers brought it to America

Exactly. I don't want to handle a pile of soiled towels, take them home to stink my automobile, and then contaminate my washer. Tissues in plastic bag go directly to the dumpster at the entrance to the marina.

Exactly. Most all the waste goes to the treatment plant after being pumped from the blackwater tank. Anal-smeared paper goes to the compost pile (landfill) so any bacteria can finish digesting the paper.

Maybe, maybe not.

Siphonic flush toilet

Crapper's Valveless Waste Preventer
Crapper held nine patents, three of them for water closet improvements such as the floating ballcock, but none was for the flush toilet itself.[citation needed] Thomas Crapper's advertisements implied the siphonic flush was his invention; one having the text "Crapper's Valveless Water Waste Preventer (Patent #4,990) One movable part only", but patent 4990 (for a minor improvement to the water waste preventer) was not his, but that of Albert Giblin in 1898.[7][8] Crapper's nephew, George, did improve the siphon mechanism by which the water flow is started. A patent for this development was awarded in 1897.[9]

Origin of the word "crap"
It has often been claimed in popular culture that the slang term for human bodily waste, crap, originated with Thomas Crapper because of his association with lavatories. A common version of this story is that American servicemen stationed in England during World War I saw his name on cisterns and used it as army slang, i.e. "I'm going to the crapper".[10]

The word crap is actually of Middle English origin and predates its application to bodily waste. Its most likely etymological origin is a combination of two older words, the Dutch krappen: to pluck off, cut off, or separate; and the Old French crappe: siftings, waste or rejected matter (from the medieval Latin crappa, chaff).[10] In English, it was used to refer to chaff, and also to weeds or other rubbish. Its first application to bodily waste, according to the Oxford English Dictionary, appeared in 1846 under a reference to a crapping ken, or a privy, where ken means a house.[10]

Like to thank my parents at this point. They grew up as children during the depression and while we as a family were by no means poor, my parents promoted frugality. Scott's single ply all my life and if you needed a more thorough clean up, the shower is in the same room. My vacuflush seems to be very happy with that. Maybe one day I will learn to appreciate the finer rolls of TP.........but I sure hope not.

Peggy, greatly appreciate your wealth of knowledge concerning the care and feeding of my head!

Ted - Although I too greatly appreciate Peggy's ablutionary inputs that keep our 'heads" on straight... Must ask... what is it about underlined and single CAPS word/words in your now bolded sentence that seems a bit off balance?? - LOL

I have to 'fess up to Peggy. I have recently been doing a study on the Monitor and Virginia. A detailed book about the history of the Monitor and the raising of its turret was just finished. Plus a couple of months back I spent a day visiting the Hampton Maritime Museum and its superb exhibit of telling the whole Monitor story. I was also at the the exact area that the famous battles took place.
