Oh, I get the whole idea and the tread-lightly goals and I'll eagerly, gladly applaud those who can succesfully pull off having a composting toilet but, for most of us, they just would never pass the "practicality test" because we routinely have regular stay-overs and road-trips w/ our toddler grandkids who still need a potty "training seat", and then, back in the day when my daughters were tee-angers, no I mean tee-naggers, no that's not it either, I mean TEEN-AGERS, there, got it! they would have collectively screamed bloody murder were I to have even suggested installing a composter, or still one further reason, when my 91 years old/young MIL is on board, which still happens at least a week per year, well, what more need be said? But, any of my situations aside, I honestly do think what you're doing is VERY COOL. [Hey, how is the bowl rinsed down without a rinser? Wait, better question: does your composter include a ladder to get on it? A seatbelt to prevent falls off of it? No belt; what about a padded floor surround to cushion those falls? Wait, I bet you can order up the parachute option? Sorry, sorry, I can't resist a little gratuitous rib; I was a high school teacher for too long so now I think like a high-schooler - at least that's what my wife says
anyway, I really do know your marine model is only a couple inches taller than a tall standard toilet.
