Just built in a composter. Will let you know how it works out. (I did not throw the old seacock away)

Smurphy, it would be great if you started a thread with photos on your home-built composter. I for one would be interested in seeing your solution and I think a lot of people who are contemplating building a composting toilet would benefit. I've had a Nature's Head for over 2 years now and would never go back.

With all due respect for what looks like a beautiful aesthetic retrofit, I don't think you could know from afar whether someone had the skills to do a repower.

The inexperienced don't know what they don't know.

I would have bought a commercially made unit but there was no room to fit one. If I remember, will take some pix and post them BEFORE it gets "charged", Minne

If anyone questions the price, you should just hang up the phone....

I'm great at typing out a thought, but in real life - I am a total social retard who interacts with other humans poorly.

Shocking revelation, I know..

Your boat will sell itself. Best thing in selling is to listen twice as much as you talk. 2 ears, one mouth, use in that proportion. If they don't know what they are looking at, then all the explaining in the world won't do much to convince them.

Chris, is the boat still for sale? I see on your blog that you've taken it off the market.

Ya know, In Feb I helped my buddy find a boat (1966 36 cal) And had I known about Heron we would of bought that boat so quick, But I'd personally feel bad stealing it from you at that price. You can obviously do that quality if work again so I can't say it's a once in a life time boat, for me it would be.
