Default Special needs fishing

I bring down a group of graduating Sr every summer and some of us go snapper fishing. I've got a kid with Downs syndrome graduating next year who has some digestive issues. When he has to poop it's not good. He's got to go and can't wait. I've been going with Capt. Slim on here, but don't know if is facilities (a 5 gallon bucket) would work for this and he would pretty much ruin a fishing trip for everyone involved if it goes bad, but his mom wants him to go fishing, She will go with him if he does.

Any suggestions?

Able to get in and out of the boat on the water??? If so, have him dress in trunks and a T, jump in, go, toss him a rag and be back on board fishing! This worked for my son when he was younger, they are both the same way, digesting issues.

Not sure how he would feel about jumping in the ocean 10-20 miles out. We are from Arkansas.

Ohh, lol, yes I see where that may be a problem. Hard to hang ham when rocking out there. Is captain able to borrow or aquire a CC with a head in the console? Portable toilet are convenient, but not very private, lol

Maybe, he does have a cabin underneath where his kids go. I've not had to go that bad yet.

I might suggest going out on one of the party boats. They have heads (bathrooms) on board.

I talked with Brant with the youtube channel that hangs with Yak Motley. He suggested a head boat. I've done them myself, but don't really like them, but think that is my best option. Probable going to do the entertainer. Wish I could find one a little cheaper.

Here is one in Orange Beach for $59 plus $5 fuel plus 15% tip - total $73.60 for 4 hours for a cheaper one.
I am sure it won't compare to The Entertainer, but it gets the kid out there for allot less.
