sailingdog Get a Raritan PHII or PHC. They're excellent and relatively inexpensive. Also, Raritan sells the unit sans bowl as a kit and you may be able to "recycle" the bowl off your existing head. This effectively gives you a new PHC or PHII head for a lot less money. SBO sells the refit "bowl-less" head setup through their website and Sailnet can probably order it as well.

...time to replace the trusty W/C Imperial 51 Head- recommendations?

Hello Folks,

I would like some opinions on traditional marine heads to replace the old W/C Imperial 51 on my boat.

I don't want to go with a Lavac although I know a lot of you love them.

I like the looks of the Groco model HK but have heard that Grocos can have plumbing problems. ...can't justify the blake heads $$$.

Anyone care to comment on the Groco HK or any other marine heads?
