I've actually lost
count of the number of times we've replaced our heads. Now, this is partly because whenever we needed to replace a loo on one of the dive boats, we'd put the new one on the yacht, and give the dive boats the old one. Kinda like hand-me-downs. (And hell, customers keep breaking them anyway - at least one a year between three boats)!
To be fair, though, none of the loos are reliable. I keep a good old fashioned 1 litre ice cream container on each boat I regularly use (which is only the commercial
boat and our yacht now); and I use them fairly regularly!
They do need replacing sometimes on account of the dive boat Captain
not liking them because I write PEE in big permanent lettering before I use it! On the bright side, Captain
Kumar dislikes my pot so much, he makes a supreme effort to keep the real loo working! (Unlike Captain Marc, who just shrugs and lets me keep it on the bottom shelf with the bleach!)
It's perfect. Cheap
. Reliable. Never had one break yet. Lid seals
perfectly till I can dump the contents. And actually, now I think of it, it would be better for emtying the bilges, and water cooling
systems than my love teflon pans.
