A fully plumbed head in the 230 Center Console

230 Center Console

Has anyone actually put a functioning head in the center console. I'm looking to put in a mascerator pump and a holding tank. Have a idea of where to locate the tank but I'm hoping someone who has already done the chore can pass along some helpful advice.
Thanks

Thanks buyfire for your reply. I'm pretty comfortable with being able to do the job if space allows. I looking for advice on what's available for space in the walls of the console for a holding tank. I'm sure someone has ,for instance, taken the foot rest panel off and maybe found enough room for a 6 or 9 gallon holding tank. unfortunately, I've tried talking directly to Caravelle on different issues and ideas over the past several months on different topics and haven't gotten much of a response.

Thanks for your reply. I will certainly give the products you've suggested a hard look.I've been thinking this one over for some time and will most likely give it a go if possible. I hear what you're saying about gas and bait though. Did you do any exploring around, beneath, behind the console to see where a tank might go? To be honest I'd really like to have the luxury of the tank for obvious reasons. I also like working on the boat. I do like the boat an awful lot. Maybe the engineers from Caravelle could make a suggestion.

Funny about the porta-pottie.....we have one on our 242LS and haven't used it yet! But, like it's been said before, just "knowing" it's there is a comforting thought! The space is mainly used as storage! We are lucky that our local lakes have floating "heads" to tie up to!

Good luck with your project!

Revising another old thread instead of opening a new one. I thought the Seahawks (at least 04' and up) already had a poop pump out of the factory??

Mine has a hole in the floor where a head would go and a couple of pump switches on the dash that are clearly factory.

Maybe some pics would help?
