Porta-Potti on Whaler

I feel stupid asking and I wasn't sure where to post this one but since I haven't seen much info I figured other people may have similar questions. I am currently trying to add a boat to my meager fleet that the women can ride w/o having to stop in a marina every hour. Right now I am trying to find a later 80's 22' Revenge or Temptation (Marketplace). Since the lack of a bathroom is a big deal to my passengers on the Montauk, I figured the next boat better meet this requirement. I have always found that calm seas, a quick check of the wind and a good grip on the railing was all I needed but not everyone shares my philosophy. Since there are not a lot of boat owners that I know with a porta-potti I figured I would ask here. Therefore I am wondering what I would be getting into with a Whaler equipped with a porta-potti in the cabin.
1) How does it work? (water, chemicals?)
It seems like a good idea on paper. What does the real world verdict. Thanks for any help!

I've got a 22-ft Revenge with a $60 porti-potti in it.
Believe me, having it aboard makes my wife and girls a lot happier.

Thank you for the insight! Sounds simple enough.

Ahoy, Mike. Various ladies were satisfied with a Porta Pottie sheltered by a forward shelter with privacy curtain on my Sakonnet. I would think that the same arrangement would work fine on anything from 16'7" up.

You should also look into an Outrage Cuddy model. There is plent of cockpit area and in the cuddy cabin, well you have a port-a-poty and a place to change.

I noticed a Coleman porta-potti which appears much smaller than the usual marine products. I'm thinking about this for an 18 foot outrage. Has anyone had any "experience " with this model?
