Subject: M32 Shower ???

I hope everyone had a safe happy Independence Day celebration! The bomb display here in Iraq was thankfully quiet. I have a question about a shower installation. My boat has a beautiful head but no shower. I'd like to have one put in. Is this reasonable? I am not looking for an elaborate stall, I just want the ability to shower of in my cabin. I do have a pressure water system and will need to add a water heater. I have the cockpit shower already covered. I am interested in any thoughts, ideas, photos, advice, etc...

I put a shower in "Cactus Tree".
Primitave, but it works for me.
Removed the raised floor in the head, built in a shower pan, drains to a West Marine shower sump. Removed the head sink, plumbed the sump to the old drain from the sink.
I use a one gallon buge sprayer mounted on a shelf under where the sink was. Fill half the bug sprayer with cold water, heat some water on the stove, removable shower curtain.
It's been so long since I've posted pictures, forgot how, but I have lots of the whole process, can mail them.
Doug.

check this item in e-bay Item number: 120276041160 or other similar like it , tankless water heater and I think you will come up with something if you will need it when you are docked.

Hi Ardian,

Looks like a nice idea but far too cumbersome for something that can't be used inside. For me, a sun-shower bag will do just fine for deck/cockpit showers (far fewer connections and less maintenance).

Happy Sailing!

Thanks Doug,

I've read about others using the bug sprayer as a shower and I might consider it as an option. I am however, looking for a more permanent installation-like the sink faucet that doubles as the shower nozzle. It is very difficult for me to plan things from over here without seeing the boat. The floor/drain system sounds like quite a project. I am trying to lay out the probability of this making it to my "to do" list or if it will stay as just a thought.

Kind regards,
Parker
