Gulf 32 Owners - Having head problems

Gulf 32 Owners:
We just bought a 1985 Gulf 32 and am having problems with the head. Originally i guess the boat did not come with a holding tank and one was put in (only 6 gallons) but it is at the same level as the head (under the V berth) and having problems with the in flow and out flow as one flush will fill the holding tank.

Does anyone have any suggestions for the head and or holding tank.

Thanks
Stinky Vikki

Gulf 32 owners - Need Help with our head!

Gulf owners having problems with the head. We have a 85 gulf 32 and the head has a 6 gallon holding tank. The tank is at the same level as the head and it just doesn't work. Need suggestions.... Need to have head that works. The intake overflows and the outtake takes forever and one flush fills the tank.
Thanks the lion lady

I am looking to buy a steel pilothouse 36' to 40' ketch. I like very much the Bruce Roberts Spray, Do you know one fore sale?
Thanks
Guy

Stinky Vikki (I think I prefer lionwhisperer):

You shouldn’t get any sewage backflow (holding tank to toilet), even when the holding tank is installed higher than the rim of the toilet bowl, provided the toilet discharge hose has a vented loop, higher than the bowl rim and waterline (at all angles of heel).

Although the figure below shows a toilet below WL and overboard discharge, the same principle applies to an (high mtd.) Holding tank discharge.

Hi all! I ran into a guy at last years Annapolis show ( I think it was last year, but cant remember what I had for lunch today...) who was advertising a NEW Gulf 32 Pilothouse. He was starting up a company, and had the original molds, I believe. Anyone hear anything along these lines?

The Gulf 32 is a pretty good boat. Pretty deep ladder to get below as I remember though. It's just an old short waterline Garden type design. But it will get you there. Not sure what they are going for, but there are other options unless you want the pilot house.

I know the Newports were cheaply built, so I would be leery of the Gulf 32. Also look at a Rawson 30 Pilothouse. There is one on boating yellow pages for $18000

I would say the Rawson and the Gulf are pretty much in the same vein , design and quality wise. in fact I think they are both Garden designs, but I could be wrong about that. The Rawson will sail circles around a Westsail, but then it's not nearly as overbuilt and much smaller really. The Gulf is 32 feet and they also make a 36 I believe. The Rawsons are a bargain if you can live with a small boat. Very dry boat at sea. Will hobby horse a little in chop. Both boats will do that due to the short water line/older design. Many of the Rawsons were owner finished, although fewer of the pilot houses I believe. Being a fishing boat builder, the Rawsons are cement with steel punchings for ballast. But here again, it depends on what the owner wanted, could be lead.
