What does everyone do when they go cruising with a lot of people.
I've got a 1994 Outrage 24. Everything is great, with the exception of the Port-A-Potty.
I went out cruising for 6 hours the other week and the
I don't know about the kind of gloves you get at your local medical supply store, but my rubber gloves don't reach my shoulders and I found that I needed a Hookah Rig to just enter the CC. What a mess!
I don't mind cleaning the boat, at all, but I'll be damned if I'm going to do the Bathroom Detail again with a Port-A-Potty. It just takes all the fun from the day's trip.
What am I doing? Well, I'm putting a Head and holding tank
What would you do?

On my Whalers, a quickly set Mills Forward Shelter, with velcro on-off drop curtain, provides everything necessary in privacy for changing clothes, porta-potti, etc. With the well cover off, one can actually stand up in the 25.
But guess what gets used 99% of the time - a multi-purpose 20 oz plastic "Coke" mug with red handle! More frequent marina stops also helps for less "experienced" guests.

Couple of thoughts...
1. take fewer people out on your boat

If the problem is guys missin' and pissin' all over the console, the permanent head isn't going to stop that. Sending the guys into the water to do a prop check will.
If the problem is capacity and overflow, I'd upgrade the 735 2.6 gallon model to a 775 5.5 gallon model. The top half is the same, but the bottom half is taller, taking the total height from 12-1/8 inches to 16-5/8 inches.
IIRC, the macerator discharge is going to have to be wired shut within 3 miles of the coast anyway.

It's not the Pissin 'N Missin that's so much the problem but the Stoopin-N-Poopin. However, once the guests figure out that there's a place to go, other than over the side of the boat, they're all to happy to "test the facilities"... especially the little kids.
I like the idea of the Drop Down Curtains on the Weather Shelter/Spray Hood, but the CC is large enough to enter - even for me. The bucket w/ Kitty Litter is also a great concept that I wish I had thought of originally, instead of the Port-A-Potty - even the size of the seat makes a difference.
Then there is also the "stigma" of the person crying that they need to pull over immediately as they're about to explode. LHG, as you know, the ICW doesn't allow for speeds in excess of 15mph in many places, so getting to a Marina w/ Facilities can be a problem.
Well, no more Hookah Rig. They're puttin a Head deep into the body of Whale Rider's CC.
