Discussion Topic: Does Your Boat Need a Bassroom?

When nature calls while you’re fishing, you no longer have to lose your privacy to keep your spot. Just get a Bassroom, a portable, enclosed john invented by North Texas anglers Matt Smith and son Kirk Smith.

From Country World News:

The two designed a bathroom privacy system for fishing boats that is very sturdy, comfortable, and easy to use. . . . The Bassroom system basically includes a domed cover, stool with full toilet seat, and black, zip-up plastic bags for waste. The cover folds so it can be stored into a one-inch-thick by 23-inches-around bag. Plus, the system includes another 18-inches by 21-inches storage bag for the stool.

What do you think? Would you buy one? (Personally, I’d be a little leery about a toilet that includes a stool.)


Matt Smith

Don't be leery of the Bassroom System. The toilet stool is made of 1" dia. steel tubing and uses 1" wide nylon webbing doubled around tubing. The toilet seat is a standard household seat and sets up the same height as a standard residential toilet. It is manufactured to be heavy duty. Check us out at www.coveryourbass.com
