I am so glad this came up. I am planning to do the Loop with my 100 lb Rotti-Lab in a small trawler. I thought about the poop problem and shuddered at the thought of taking him to shore before coffee every morning.

One more thing checked off my "You better learn this boating stuff List" before I buy a boat!

No pirates or squirrels here and squirrels can't swim anyway so can't get on the boat.

Cat doesn't crap on the deck
Keeps birds away so they don't crap on the deck
And she eats any small raw fish we throw her way so almost costs nothing to keep.

You live in Oz! I was there for Rotary Convention a few years ago. Loved Australia.

However, you have HUGE spiders and Bo chases and eats them along with flies and mice and chipmunks. Actually has yet to catch a chipmunk.

Cats prefer open top composting toilets (litter box) to pooping on deck.

This is a pop n scoop household.

Has anyone put artificial turf in the shower and taught dog to poop there? Then just into the toilet and flush away.

I see squishy traps for the unwary.
(Wayfarer, stop reading now)
Our biggest spider is the Huntsman,hairy but harmless. I scoop them up in a towel and put them outside.The next size down funnel web is not harmless,you get treatment or you die.
