    The best material I've found to use here is rough sawn shims from a bar of Babbitt. Easy to make in various thickness, tapered or not with a dab of Dow Corning 700 Industrial grade silicone sealant on the floor side.

    Shouldn't have built the house on the side of a hill. Next step is remembering to install a drain in the lowest corner.

    Use the toilet just right and you won't have to worry about levelling wedges.

    It should be within .0005 on both X and Y to ensure that you get the straight poop.

    Having lived on a boat for five years, I can assure you that a horizontal toilet is not at all necessary for a quiet life.

    Why settle for static? How about dynamic jacker to suit the load.

    Thanks for the entertaining replies

    I forgot I already had a jig for cutting wedges on my tablesaw like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VTCYsiJJSrQ

    Works great with PVC, nylon too

    Holey Cripes! I absolutely insist on vertical toilets on a boat.
