Default Porta potty in cuddy at night?

For those that sleep in your cuddy at night and only have a Porta potty (or bucket), where do you put the potty at night in case you have to go during sleep? And for those whose wife joins you in the cuddy at night, what do you do to make her comfortable with a Porta potty or bucket?

Depends on your boat's layout. On our boat, if we are away from others, the porta potti goes in the cockpit at night (actually it is there most of the time). In the case of close quarters or inclement weather it is at the other end of the boat cabin from the berth.

FWIW, you're better off with a wife who is comfortable with that sort of thing in the first place than trying to get a wife who needs all the porcelain conveniences of home used to using something else.

Near the pilothouse door. Or back deck. Even if I'm in an anchorage , it's dark enough no one will see me [and complain].

Leave it right in the cabin. The smell of a fresh dump masks the smell of old bunker

mine is mounted in the cabin. Thankfully we sleep mostly on the bow seating bunks instead of in the actual cabin.
