Default Poop on board - what do you do?

We're out today pulling the kids on a tube. Little one (7) informs us with no small amount of urgency that he has to poop. He drops drawers and does his thing in a 5 gallon bucket, laughing hysterically the whole time.

Now, we have a bucket of poop on board and have to decide what to do with it. The area in which we are tubing is lined with beach houses. Wife is gagging. Do you:

Keep on board?
Dump over?
Dump in fishbox and run through macerator?
Dump bleach in bucket and put bucket in livewell?

Go.

This does not work. There is a certain suction created swimming forward that will cause a turd to "draft" and follow you. The faster you swim, the faster it swims. This phenomenon actually is quite dangerous as it instills panic and results in exhaustion as one tries to outswim the turd, which is an exercise in futility.

No way.

One little 7 year old's waste vs a holding tank where everyone has been dropping off the browns is a totally different thing.

Don't ever panic in the water, change your swim stroke.
