Weve had a lot of fun with toilets and sanitation systems in the last couple of years, and after last weekend, when I descended into the smelliest brokerage boat Id ever set foot on, I thought Id revisit some of our findings here.The good news is that a stinky head is curable. The better news is that it need not cost you an arm and a leg. Thats not to say a cure is cheapthis is a cruising boat were talking aboutbut in many cases, a change in maintenance habits and less than $20 can put you on the path to deep breathing again.
