I might want something better for the Selway at 6 feet, but I will worry about that when it happens. The bucket works really well with PETT bags too, then there is no spillage. For small fast trips anyway. For that the shorter bucket is better.....we had to do something with the bag but I can't remember what micro-engineering feat it was.
And if I gather right a gamma lid threaded part is permanently attached to the seat? And then another for sealing up on the boat? Awesome idea.
Bomber handle setup catagirl. I like it.
Yep.....I screwed the gamma lid to the seat, then cut out the inner portion, leaving just the threaded part attached. Spare seal up lid goes in the groover bag in a giant zip lock bag. Our system involves a duffle bag with the spare lid, TP, RV toilet deodorizer chemicals, and hand sanitizer. The down side to our old system was that you had to open up the groover and set the toilet seat on top each time you used it, then put the gamma lid back on. Some folks couldn't handle the opening & closing of the bucket each time, and we always had folks setting the gamma lid down in the sand or dirt which ruins the O-ring. The new seat & lid works much better. Kudos to lhowemt for her idea.
So far, this is the only system we've used on the Main Salmon, Middle Fork, Deso, San Juan, and Snake with no leaks or breakage. Not so much fun to empty at an RV dump, but works well in a scat machine.
