Odd problem - how do take the toilet out ?

Not a standard Ribbing question , but the new boat has a loo in it & it gets in the way ! As i'm never more than 15 mins from land it is going to go, but can I just unbolt it & leave th pumbing in place with the valves closed or will it fill the boat with water ? Am I better off blanking off the pipes too ? Any ideas ? anyone done it ? Anyone want to help/ laugh when I sink it - death by bog ?

The best solution is probably to completely remove all the skin fittings and build up new fibreglass in the holes. Easier, and more than adequate, is to cap the closed sea cocks internally, but only if they are in good condition. Ideally this solution needs to be capable of being checked, ie not hidden away behind new bulkheads etc.
