Porta potti 3Mon 16 Mar 2020 13:00:05
Kingfisher Kingfisher Sat 22 Feb 2020 12:52:54 Hi all,

Just trying to fit out our boat for short trips with small children. Has anyone put in a porta potti? On paper the smallest size (the porta potti 335) might just squeak into the space between the V berths but it looks a bit tight! Hard to measure exactly because the space curves at the front. Anyone able to tell me definitively if it fits or not?

The 345 is roughly 3 cm bigger than the 335 in every dimension. https://web.archive.org/web/20200224191113if_/https://www.segel-markt.com/bigpic/Yacht--Manta%2019/3013.6.jpg
Kingfisher Kingfisher Mon 02 Mar 2020 14:10:41 Thanks - I did see that but strangely the space between the berths is a different shape on ours - it is curved at the forward end which makes it difficult to measure exactly, so my concern is it might be smaller than the space shown in that photo. I was wondering if this was a difference in the UK boats maybe.

Still, that should be fixable, we're intending to move the vertical panel on the aft end of the forward berth back into the cabin slightly so it'll fit and make the panel which covers the porta potti (the one which provides the infill for the v-berth slightly larger so there isn't a gap. It'll be a bit bodged but should work ok.
