Anyway, the marine head was completely removed to improve storage space.

Does anyone know a rough estimate on how much it would cost to return the head to live-aboard condition assuming the plumbing is still there? And maybe another estimate if all plumbing was removed.

Thanks all! This will be my first sailboat larger than a Laser.

Just go to the Defender or West Marine websites and add up the prices of all the pieces you'll need. If you plan on having someone else do the work for you, call a boatyard or two and ask them how many hours labor such a job might take and what their hourly charges are.

Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
