A composting toilet treats human waste using biological processes, changing it into organic compost that can be used as soil fertiliser. It is in fact a complete waste processing system on a small scale. Bacteria and other macro and micro-organisms thrive in the aerobic conditions provided by a composting toilet, getting rid of harmful pathogens, removing the risk to human health and environment and converting the waste nutrients into fertile soil. Waste material is reduced to a small fraction of its original volume.
You can now see all 60 lots that are available to bid on in the next Boatbid auction starting July 15th 2016.

The ARC all began in 1986. After spending many years cruising around the world, Jimmy Cornell decided to use his knowledge and experience to organise a cruising rally across the Atlantic. This new annual event has since provided the opportunity for many sailors to accomplish their dreams of an Atlantic challenge and blue water cruising.
This recipe uses raw beetroot which is in season now - for a crunchy crisp coleslaw which is such a vibrant colour, perfect for boating BBQ's.
Lisa and I enjoyed the opportunity for a little Pacific Northwest cruising aboard our new Helmsman Trawlers 31 Camano while taking her to PassageMaker’s TrawlerFest in Anacortes. This gem is the latest (and the most compact) addition to the line of Helmsman Trawlers. We’ve been working for several years on this project to update and substantially redesign the venerable Camano 31 and were glad for some sea time to “test cruise" the finished product.
