One Sweet Seat
By Elizabeth A. Ginns — June 2003
Let's face it: Cruising is a close-quarters situation. Anything that can make the scenario more comfortable for everyone onboard is welcome.
The Whisper Fresh, a toilet seat with a carbon filter, microprocessor switch, memory chip, four D-cell batteries, and a fan, can help. When someone sits on the seat, the fan "circulates the air within the bowl through the filter," according to the product's marketers, resulting in fresh air in your boat's head. The batteries and filter should last about six months with "average" use (fortunately, no further definition was given).
The Whisper Fresh is available through Fresh Air Distribution and has an MSRP of $149.95. For the gift of clean air in the head, the cost is just a drop in the bucket.
