Installing a sink and toilet into a Sailboat

Hi ,

I bought a Shark 24 by Hinter Hoeller last summer and have been working on it since then.

Even thought this kind of boat is mostly a racing boat , I am more of a cruiser and I am considering installing a toilet and maybe a sink.

What would be my best option ? There is no tank and no existing plumbing ( I am considering using one of the bed space ....

Thank you

Welcome Aboard!

No plumbing info for you, but I'm sure that some knowledgeable folks will chime in soon!

Got any interior pics of your boat? It may help people figure out what to advise you to do.

It sure would be nice if the damn sink did not overflow when heeled over.

The porta-pottie would be the cheapest out. But a composter is (imho) a better choice because emptying a porta is Sooooooo nasty.

There are small self contained sinks as well, that may be a way to solve that.
