Composting Marine Toilet Conversion - Step 1

(Update: The Entire Conversion Is Here: Composting Toilet Conversion)

In late November 2009, once our Natures Head compositing toilet arrived, Val began the process of converting our traditional wet marine head to a dry composting one. This odyssey would be the largest modification we've made to the boat to date. The photo here is of the original marine head in all its stinky glory.

Step one in the process was motoring the boat over to the sewage pump out station and emptying the holding tanks of all the stuff.

Tanks as dry as possible, with chest high and nose pinched shut, Val attacks the project by removing the first hose. Our boldness and conviction would be tested as we faced obstacle after obstacle. Enjoy the smelly journey!
