Toilet talk, sorry!

So we all know that boat loos smell right? Particularly the ones that aren't used very often. Why? Well its not the boys lack of directional control or not flushing properly but rather the algae in the sea water inlet pipe as it dies, this gives off sulphuric acid (smelly rotten egg gas smell) which causes the chrome to corrode on your taps as well.
