    What happened to the glass bottomed bucket,the cheapest most effective multi purpose devise a cruising boat can have. It can be a head, a sink, a wash tub. a fish finder ,a seat, a table ,a bailer,or water system and who nows what else, and yet you can't buy one . I would like to see one with a flat side so it could be secured against a bulkhead with bungy cord but I suppose thats asking to much.

    They sell collapsible ones at west marine and on the web. Had a long tube with a glass at end when I was a kid... We used it everywhere...
