    I think many who cite the wonders of a composting head, really should first be asking themselves if they can improve their regular head system to avoid the problems they have.

    Also, the reality of longer term cruising, is you will eventually have to empty the composting toilet, while some of the the contents are not yet composted. In my opinion that's much less pleasant than simply opening a through-hull.

    Hello, Skip. The Galerider is the larger model measuring over 42". I inspected it again and it is new save a few smudges from the locker where it was stored at the yacht club. The postage should be around $25 according to size, weight, and location (I think you are in Florida?). I will have it insured as well. My pay pal e m a i l acct. is: retomas at g m a i l dot com. Send me a note to the mail address first to make sure we have it correct. Thanks, Bob --- 9 1 7 7 9 7 9 9 2 5 phone.

    Hi....I will be able to open the box where the Galerider is stored, tomorrow morning. I will check the measurement.

    You may mean Grimaldi's Pizza in Brooklyn. I think it would be cheaper and easier to simply ship the item via USPS Priority. I think I could fit it into a box safely. If not, I will ship it FedEx as there is a center not far from my home. My past experience tells me that it should be between $20-30 (probably on the lower end but the insurance brings the cost up). My email address is good for paypal. There is a 3% paypal charge but I will absorb that. Expect to hear from me tomorrow. By the way, where are you located...I did not look at your profile here...

    Hi there, sorry we never got as far North to your neck of the woods when we were in Florida. We managed to view two Beneteau 49's though but still haven't sold our house yet.

    Hi there friend, how do I get my profile pic to appear with my username? When I see my posts I can see usernames and pics of others but not my own?

    By the way, we leave Sunday for Orlando and will probably be looking at boats in Jacksonville Fl and Daytona Beach on 6/7 April.

    Hello skipmac,
    I have just been turned on by the Pearson 422 and feel this might just be my next boat. The cabin might be the ticket to get the girlfriend to go with me.
    Is the photo of your 422? Did you need to prep the ground before setting her there? Did you need a crane or did you use one the of moving companies that have a trailer that can off load? Any info on the boat 422's well be greatly appreciated.

    Regards,
    Jaxx.

    i am a trainee working at a Ring Gear Manufacturing Company entrusted with the responsibility of finding customers from the marine sector.
    My immediate boss does not offer me any help and the top bosses always ask me about the data.
    Please guide me with this.
