Mine is under the V-berth where it is curtained off from the rest of the
cabin for some privacy. But you have to disturb whoever is sleeping in the
V-berth to use it or place it out in the cabin or outside in the cockpit to
use it. We plan to use it only as an emergency potty and do our serious
business on shore. The guys use the bucket for urine of course. For some
reason thew ladies don't get the same thrill out of that as us guys do!! In
my opinion there just is no solution to this problem. The benefit derived
from the design is the largest V-berth in a trailerable boat that I have
ever encountered. For a six plus footer like me that is very worthwhile.
Only in America is there a modesty problem such as is caused by this. In
most countries I believe restroom are co-Ed and/or very public. But
upbringing is hard to overcome.
