I built my own composting head, several years ago. Works well . Cost me under $25 for materials. I use the rotting vegitation one finds under old moss covered logs, instead of peat or coconut. Has all the necessary bacteria.
I've never heard of anyone on any chatline who regretted switching to a composter of the airhead- natures head variety. I believe they will become the standard marine head, eventually, especially when the Chinese bring the price down to under $50.
I've been selling the separator bowls off my boat, a good possible source of cruising funds for low income cruisers, with a mold and materials.
