Instead of buying a Jabsco, which is a pretty lousy unit by all accounts, I'd get a RARITAN PHC/PHII LBA unit, which is about the same price as the full size Jabsco Twist & Lock and only a little more money than the Jabsco Twist & Lock compact head.

The LBA unit re-uses the bowl off your existing head, and basically gives you a brand new (except the bowl) Raritan PHC or PHII head unit. This head unit is considered one of the best inexpensive manual head units by Peggie Hall, and is a far better unit than the Jabsco.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
