Also in 2005, Core'ngrato was fitted with a sea toilet. "This weekend after a couple of beers up river I decided no convenience is an inconvenience!", said Graham. "Removing the Blakes Sea-cock to do the job took serious driving force having been in there 20 something years! Lump hammer and broom handle off-cut sorted it." Following re-grinding the taper it was ready for the loo itself.
