Re: Annapolis Spring Boatshow 2014

There is only one water taxi I know of. Your best bet is to find a marina on Back Creek that the water taxi runs to. The Spring show is a shadow of the Fall show.

Re: marine head vs. porta potty

We had both, the Porta Potti worked fine, especially for day trips. Marina won't let you dump it? Just take it home. Only suggestions are to make it is secure in the boat, not flying around, and...

Re: marine head vs. porta potty

We had a marine head on our Alberg 30 and added a Porta-potty when we headed south to Mexico thinking we were in compliance with US regs. Wrong. First time we were boarded I confidently pointed out...

Re: marine head vs. porta potty

We did the same thing in our '72 P26. It had a smelly bladder holding tank and a non-working HeadMate in it when we bought it. Ripped all of it out and replaced it with a Portapotti 550P MSD. It's...

Re: marine head vs. porta potty

We bought our boat last year and replaced the marine head with a portapotti (our first choice was a composting/desiccating head, but there wasn't enough space for one). We spent weekends on the boat...

Re: marine head vs. porta potty

Having had both potti and now a holding tank, I'm looking to replace the holding tank with a potti and/or a compost/desiccation system. Hate, detest, the holding tank (and I'm on a 40' boat)

Re: marine head vs. porta potty

I just dislike emptying a PP and many marinas forbid you to do so into their bathrooms. Further, the toxic chemicals are bad all around. No need for them in a holding tank. This is a great bible...

Re: marine head vs. porta potty

Our boat (Catalina 25) came with a marine head. Some of the places we sail do not have pump out service. I removed the head and installed a PP with two tanks-one on top for fresh water and the...

Re: marine head vs. porta potty

My vintage 1966 no doubt at one time had a head. When I purchased her a year ago she had a PP but the model with a 5 gal tank. I think it is like a 970 model. I even plumbed it with a deck fitting so...

Re: marine head vs. porta potty

On a small boat, a porta potti is infinitely easier than a "marine head". When my 28' had a marine head, I spent more time fixing it than all other systems combined. Replaced it with a porta-potti...

Re: marine head vs. porta potty

OK, I change my recommendation. I'd change that baby out. On a 22-footer you probably only have space for a porta potty. Better than a bladder I would think. If you're planning to keep this boat for...

Re: marine head vs. porta potty

Oh. No experience with those.

I'd have to think carefully about how I wanted to use the boat as well as how long I expected to keep it before going to the next boat.

Investing in a proper tank...

Re: marine head vs. porta potty

Oh boy! You are gonna want to get rid of that bladder holding tank. That was never a good idea. You want your holding tank to have ventilation. You also want to make it out of something that will...

Re: marine head vs. porta potty

If the head works I would leave it, maintain it, and use it. Unless there are other compelling reasons to switch, such as no or few pump out services, needing to extend your range, or wanting to save...

Re: marine head vs. porta potty

If the head has a holding tank and it works then I wouldn't fix it . I bet it runs on sea water, so it will smell . To help out with that pour in fresh after you are done with the boat for awhile ....

Re: marine head vs. porta potty

A portapotty is basically a $150.00 bucket. I would use the head as long as it works.
