Re: Compostable Head Installation in Vancouver, BC

I sure hope y'all are right. We just ordered a Nature's Head for our 27 year old Catalac 12M. I have removed one of the Baby Blakes, and plan to take out the holding tank etc. today. Not looking forward to experiencing souvenirs left by three previous owners since '86. We have another Baby Blake in the other head, plumbed directly overboard. We plan to keep that in place until we see how the NH works out.

I've been told that the Baby Blakes are worth a few bucks. Any ideas on how to sell them?

Decommissioning my old head two weeks ago was nasty! And (raised on a ranch) I'm not easily grossed out... I gave up any idea of recycling, took a saw to the hoses, and packed the whole shitteree to the dumpster as fast as my legs would carry me. After that I'm convinced that I'm on the right path with composting. I've read good things about the NH and think you'll be happy.

BTW. My boats in the water and I wanted a semi-permanently seal for my old discharge sea cock. I bought a 1 1/4" expanding neoprene plug at the hardware store for $4.

Good Luck!
