Discussion Topic: Does Your Boat Need a Bassroom?

When nature calls while you’re fishing, you no longer have to lose your privacy to keep your spot. Just get a Bassroom, a portable, enclosed john invented by North Texas anglers Matt Smith and son Kirk Smith.

The two designed a bathroom privacy system for fishing boats that is very sturdy, comfortable, and easy to use. . . . The Bassroom system basically includes a domed cover, stool with full toilet seat, and black, zip-up plastic bags for waste. The cover folds so it can be stored into a one-inch-thick by 23-inches-around bag. Plus, the system includes another 18-inches by 21-inches storage bag for the stool.

What do you think? Would you buy one? (Personally, I’d be a little leery about a toilet that includes a stool.)
