New Head

SV Mia Noi is a great boat to sail and hangout on, but the one area she falls short is space. Namely space for a designated private marine toilet or ‘head’.

Not wanting to ‘sit on anyone else’s turf’ – I replace the original porta potty that was onboard SV Mia Noi when I purchased her.

I searched online reading reviews for the best porta potty to buy considering my space limitations. There was an electric flush model with a large holding tank that I liked but it sat too high to fit under the V-Berth cushions.

So, I settled on a West Marine porta potty with a pressure flush. I waited a month to see if I could buy it on sale, but unfortunately the lower priced model is the only one West Marine discount. I paid $200 including tax for it and still haven’t had to use it.

Fingers crossed it stays that way – incidentally, the old head had never been used so I was told!
