and have the thing start rolling around down below.
Nevermind, I see that the head comes with brackets and knobs to attach it to the floor. I guess one should keep in mind the space needed to access these knobs when laying out the compartment.
I see youíve answered your question. If I recall
(boat is 2500 km away right now), the base brackets are actually inset from the seat and air intake/outflow spigots, so the brackets wonít be the limiting factor. Itís quite easy to remove the unit using the two handled bolts than screw into the base on either side, securing it to the permanently mounted brackets.
You do need to include this additional space around the unit, including enough space to tilt the top/toilet part back so you can remove the urine bottle. I think the install sheets
online are pretty good at giving the necessary space allowances.
