Re: Recommend for trailer sailer with a real head?

In my experience, you really don't want a real porcelain marine toilet on a TS.. With the holding tank, etc. it adds far too much weight for a little yacht resulting in crappy (excuse the pun) sailing - but it's the extra load on the trailer winch when hauling out with a full tank that's the real killer.

OTOH, if you happened to own something like a Magnum 8.5...
