"Thomas, thanks for participating in my crappy topic.  Your kilt idea has merit, but I'll refuse to wear a skirt without proper makeup.  I could just slip on a gender neutral poncho before using the head and forget about the…"

"How to take a crap on a Tiki 26 seems to be an ongoing discussion.  After eight years of sailing Tsunamichaser, I have come to the conclusion that there is no single simple solution.  I use multiple solutions each with its own merit and…"
