Re: Replacement toilet for a '75 F36

that would depend on your budget, not everyone can afford to install a 1200 toilet in their boat, (Raritan Elegance) the prices can range from 159.00 to 2000, depending on what you want, they all do what their suppose to do, what you have to look at is if you want electric, manual etc, smell, no sme...
