W-C Seaclos may be installed either at or below the boat's
waterline. The toilet must be securely fastened to prevent rocking
during pumping. SO it is best to bolt it to a board and screw the board
to the cabin flooring to insure a solid mounting.
Hose may be used for piping and should be installed so as to avoid
sharp bends. The flush water intake i n the hull should be forward of.
and lower than the discharge outlet. A flap should be placed over the
outside of discharge outlet to prevent gurgling.
On installations where the to~let may be below waterline a vented
loop waste line is recommended. See Vented Loop. Figure 1548. for
use with this toilet.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
