Usually salt water (or outside water) is used to flush the toilet. You can plan on about a gallon a flush so if you have a 40g water tank that is 40 flushes without leaving any for other purposes. If all you are doing is going out for the day or weekend this would work but why? Put in the through hulls and be done with it. They are not difficult to install. As far as blisters go I have not heard of any problems with the Mariners but yours was made after the resin formulations changed which caused a lot of the blister problems in the first place so you may be different fron the rest of us.

Bryan,

I agree w/Steve. If you intend to sail the boat or at some later date sell it as a working boat, I'd install a head in the proper way.

Another resource is your local WestMarine rep--or similar where you are. They'd have good ideas about plumbing a new head and could walk you thru the options.

As to blisters, Murre had a few just below the water line on one side of the hull (I presume it was the "sunny" side in some previous marina), but they were really just "pimples", i.e. none were larger than an eraser head and none were below the gel coat. So, frightening, but not serious. I opened and filled them and then sealed the hull, and none have returned.
