Head Compartment Construction Complete
The area where the head (aka toilet) is now complete. In this small compartment, a composting toilet will be mounted. I call this area the “head compartment”, because it really is just a small compartment which has been dedicated to the head.
The compartment is water-tight (to well above waterline level) and is built in the same location as where the original Bristol 27 head was. I decided to fiberglass the area around the head so it can double as a “wet bin” for wet clothes.
Using the head will be slightly awkward, however since I won’t be using the head very often, that’s the compromise I made. When I do need to use the head, it will be only for short periods. So, when I compared the time spent on the toilet to the time spent sitting in the salon (for example), I decided to dedicate more space to other areas of the boat.
