My boat is in Sweden and this year Sweden has introduced a ban on waste discharge from boats. Rather than fit a holding tank, I have taken a look at the AirHead composting toilet http://airheadtoilet.com/ which is available in the UK and can be shipped to Sweden.  They do two shapes, one straight at the back and one with a cut-out to accommodate the hull if required.  I cannot recall whether my heads would require the one with a slope or the straight version.  My boat is a 1978 one with the diagonal wash basin on the right.  

Any information would be very useful.

Many thanks

Have you read

Breaking Seas: An overweight, middle-aged computer nerd buys his first boat, quits his job, and sails off to adventure [Kindle Edition]

By Glenn Damato

I would read this before you get one, He was keen on it, His friends were not. But I see your dilemma

I read the book. A great read. Completely put me off the idea of a composting toilet in a boat! But there might be better designs around now.
