Yup... very simple and more foolproof than most other marine heads as there are no moving parts outside of a very reliable diagphram pump. Also, in some installations of Lavac heads, the pump can be used to empty the holding tank while at sea. You might want to see if that is the case on your boat, as it can be very handy...

The only drawback I've seen with Lavacs is that the bowl lid is sealed while the bowl is being emptied...and if you're suffering from a bad case of seasickness, this can be a problem... They also tend to use less water from what I've seen than other heads, so may let you use the holding tank longer than a standard marine head.

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.
