The Great Big Boating Bog Survey

2nd February 2019 Mark Paris 0

Dear fellow Thruppsters
I am hoping that you would like to contribute to the most comprehensive survey of loos on boats ever!  It started with my interest in composting and wanting to find out more about how that’s going but then I realised it would a great opportunity to get a an overview of all matters boating toilets, including other recent innovations like incinerating loos. I then learned about the IWA Gap Tracker project and realised that the survey could add a lot of useful information to that data.
It won’t magically create more facilities but a good response will provide some evidence to support the IWA’s research and campaigning for more. It’s open to all boaters (UK Inland Waterways) and anyone planning to buy/build a boat in the future.
It is carefully designed so that you only get questions relevant to your loo. If you have a cassette or pump out it will take around 15 min, if you have a compost loo a little longer because I wanted to explore how that is all working in more detail, so perhaps 20-25 min.
It’s an entirely personal self funded project, independent of CRT, the EA, any boating organisation and any manufacturer or supplier of any kind of boating toilet.
I do hope you would like to join in – the bigger the response the more interesting and useful the results will be.

Thank you very much
