Trying to move from a portapoty to marine toilet.

Would love to know how catalina 250 wk were/are plumbed.

Love to see plans and or pics of locations of seacocks, lines, tanks etc, before I do my own thing.

Here's a variation: The Dometic 711 integrated toilet/holding tank that is meant to run off your fresh water tank (at about .1 - .2 gallons per flush). All you need is a connection to the water, and a short hose to a deck pump-out. No other holes in the boat. And it's extraordinarily easy for anyone to use, compared to traditional marine heads.

Mine is plumbed to a pressure-water system, but the foot peddle apparently serves as a flushing pump for non-pressurized. I like that at season's end, I can open the flush valve and spray out the tank as it is getting its final pump-out. I also like that there's no plumbing to clog or require replacement between the head and the tank. I also like the height--very much like the new "comfort height" toilets for houses. But I can't speak to how it would fit in the C-250 head. (My $+!nkp*+ head space isn't very big.)

In my case, I also greatly appreciate that it doesn't use salt water--that and a little treatment reduces the odors to nothing. I assume in Calgary you're sailing in fresh water--I presume you could plumb it to a thru-hull for water if you really want.

Just a thought...

I forgot to mention it also has a vent that in my case runs to a fitting on the side of the hull.

Kenneth,

Welcome to the forum.
One of the best features of the forum is Search.
Here's a recent post about a C250WK with a marine head.
http://www.catalina-capri-25s.org/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=31421

The marine head was a factory option, but most like mine have a porti-potty.
The tank is located in the stern, next to the battery, behind the bulkhead.
Do you have a tiller or wheel steering?
It may get tight with the tank and wheel steering.

Also, here are two links to Catalina Direct.
