Boat Refit Tips: Heads
Heads: Another area that can make a major difference for everyone aboard is to upgrade the entire head. Whether you have older electric or manual toilets, the new and sleek electric models are both more efficient and far less fussy. At the same time, you may want to upgrade your holding tank and hoses, since overboard discharge is going the way of the dinosaurs.
Capt. Bill’s Tip: Here’s to OdorSafe Plus sanitary hose! Yeah, it costs more than low-rent stuff ($12/foot vs. $2/foot) but it’s worth it. I installed OdorSafe on Betty Jane six years ago (my yard’ll do the next install, I fervently hope) and it’s still workin’. Odor safe indeed! www.dometic.com
