Hi there,
This port a potty looks like it would come in handy.  Is it still available?   Let me know.

Thanks,
RP

Great!  I’ve been looking for a port a potty,  especially one on wheels.  You never know when nature will call!  I’ll probably bring it to concerts, movies, conferences, and maybe the occasional prayer group.  Can you briefly describe how it works?  At first glance, it looks as though it’s just a chair and a bucket.  Have you used it before?  How will I dispose of all the fecal matter?  Will you be available to deliver this week?  If you need it for Thanksgiving,  I understand.   Let me know.

Thanks,
RP

This is from an estate sale so I never used it. I don’t think it would be easy to push like one would push a wheelchair. There are no handles on back of chair like a wheel chair has.  It does have wheels but that is for ease of movement of the chair.  It has a cushion seat on it for use of sitting on – like wheel up to a table. The cushion comes off and there is a seat like one finds on a toilet with the bucket below. The bucket has to be manually removed and residual flushed down toilet and the bucket is rinsed out.

I plan to list another one from same estate which is sturdier.  It is built like a wheel chair with the port a potty built in. There is no solid cushion to cover the top of the port a potty part but it does have wheel chair wheels and handles in back to push while someone is in it. Cleaning would be same as above.

I am waiting to hear from estate executor on pricing it and will list it later this afternoon or this evening. And yes, could deliver this week.

Greetings,
Thanks for getting back to me so quickly!  So, in order to clarify, here is a hypothetical scenario:  Tomorrow I’d like to take the office chair out of my cubicle and replace it with the port a potty.  Generally, I eat lunch in my cubicle (most often a ham sandwich and some type of pasta salad).  When, I’m finished eating lunch,  I’ll simply remove the synthetic leather chair top to reveal the toilet seat, and defecate and urinate in the bucket below.   Then, I’ll carry the bucket to the office men’s room, and flush all waste down the toilet.  This is how it works, correct?   Do you think I should opt for the sturdier of the two?  Perhaps, it would be beneficial to have a port a potty that will allow for more mobility.  But, then again, I’d need two helpers: one to push the chair, and one to hold the bucket.  Let me know your thoughts.

Thanks,
RP

Missed the Boat

by ranpen on November 1, 2010

16.5 Aluminum fishing boat & trailer – $1000

1981 Blue Fin 16.5′ Aluminum fishing boat. DOES NOT INCLUDE THE MOTOR!! Boat and trailer only. The trailer tows like a champ, really smooth. Very easy to load & unload. Rollers, bearing buddies, great tires, spare. Boat is rated for up to 40 hp, has 2 new batteries, a new stereo (front MP3 input, USB port, SD slot, 3 Pioneer boat speakers plus a spare), new seats, new flooring, new carpet, new transom, large front storage, new wiring (everything works great). Comes with a nice Eagle fish finder and an older Minkota bow mount trolling motor. Also has rod holders, cup holders, rod mounts, bilge pump, 6 gallon tank, new anchor, new fire extinguisher, hand held horn, 2 new life jackets, 1 new throw-able, bow & stern lights, and a new hand-held spotlight. I’ll also throw in the 2 tongue locks for the trailer. The boat is a fantastic little fishing boat, everything is there. It sucks I have to get rid of it but I’ve got a wedding to pay for soon. My stupidity, your gain.

Aye Aye Sir,
Cool boat!  I’d love to take it off your hands so you can get married.  And, don’t be so hard on yourself.  You’re not stupid for wanting to sell the boat.  Only for getting married!  Let me know if it’s still available.

Thanks,
RP

I meant foolish for getting married. At least I know there will be other boats in my future, not just the one for the rest of my life. I didn’t think this through. Just kidding.
You were the first to reply by exactly 15 minutes so you get first option to come take a look. If Thursday after 5:00 works for you I’ll be available then. Let me know.
Thanks,

Ahoy, there!
I’m looking forward to seeing the boat.   I’d like to wear my sailor suit and bring along my first mate, if you don’t mind.   Let me know if this works!

Thanks,

Captain Nick,
Sounds great!  Please contact me via Iridium or HAM radio.   My call sign is RP1CFWP.   If I’m not available, you’re more than welcome to contact Slippy,  my first mate.  His call sign is RP2CFWP.   If you have any trouble,  go ahead and visit the International Telecommunications Union.   We are in Region 2.   Can’t wait to check out the boat, and hope to hear from you soon!

P.S. Do you have any extra life jackets?

Thanks,
RP
