Skipper Head - Wilcox Crittenden - Unstoppable!

Hi all,

We've decided to convert to an Airhead composting toilet and are selling our Wilcox Crittenden Skipper head to help cover it:

trombahonker's slideshow on Flickr

I have a full rebuild kit, plus another half of one. It works well as it is. As you can see by the pictures, it has been painted, but some bronze oxidation (the green) is coming through in some places. The bowl is in perfect shape, and the teak lid/seat is fine. It has been thoroughly cleaned/sanitized and is sitting in my garage with some "head lube" in the chamber.

This thing has never clogged on us and just keeps going.

They sell new for $900; I'm asking $450. The rebuild kits are widely available from WM and others (but again, mine comes with 1 1/2 kits). Located in Southwest Florida (Charlotte County - 34224). Shipping to most of the US would probably be $50-75. Best if you pick it up though.

Let me know if you're interested!

Fair leads,
Aaron Norlund

Really? I have a Wilcox Skipper head and I love it. I know its weird to say you love a head but this one is so trouble free that I really don't have any better words for it. It has passed through a couple times female related things that you are never supposed to put down a head with little difficulty. The bronze parts do eventually wear out on this head. I had to replace mine after it was 30 years old....but then that really shows the quality of these heads.

Let me know how it goes with the "Airhead". Is that really its name? Somebody has a sense of humor.

Hey all,

I just listed the Skipper on eBay.

View it, and the other stuff I have for sale: My eBay Stuff

Hope everyone is well!

Fair leads,
Aaron N.

p.s. - yeah, Airhead is a ridiculous name. But it's a good laugh.

We had one of these aboard a previous boat. BEST MARINE HEAD EVER.

Unstoppable and indestructible.

We aren't in the market, but that is a GREAT piece of gear!

I know a guy who lost his weather gear">foul weather gear down one once.....

Just kidding......If you are aboard a crewed boat....they are a must for the crew.

Leave the hi-tech stuff for the owners and their guests.
