When I first bought my westsail 32 I had planned to install a shower in the head area. However having lived aboard now for over 1 year I realised that a shower inside the boat is not necessary for me. When I am at the marina I use their facilities. I do plan to install a shower in the cockpit. My neighbour has a fantastic setup on his W32 where he has a hot & cold tap recessed in the side wall of the cockpit. When on anchor he simply attaches his shower hose and has a hot shower. The cockpit is protected by the dodger and side curtains. I will not put a shower inside my boat now as I think it just causes more problems with moisture, dampness, junk in the bilge (depending on how you are draining it) and overall it is not a comfortable way to shower in such a cramped area. The cockpit shower for me seems like a far better solution unless you are cruising in very cold climates where showering outside would be uncomfortable. I would seriously consider whether you really need a shower inside the boat.
Hope this assists.

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!
