Hi, We are about to become live-aboards on our Kendall 32 & an indoor shower was one of my must-haves, for those crowded harbours which only have scuzzy showers full of cockroaches & spiders. We did it very simply by cutting the floorboards out in our head, building a sump with a bilge pump that pumps the water somewhere (have to check with the boat boy on that one!) and placing a teak grate over it. Our shower itself is one of those camping ones which have a bilge pump in a bucket and is powered by a cigarette lighter plug with a shower rose with hand operated on/off controls on the other end. Like this one.. http://www.vidcam.com.au/sales/shower.html This means we heat up water on the stove, get the water in the bucket to the right temperature and go for it. No need to install a hot water/pressurised water system & it can be used in the cockpit when the anchorages aren't so crowded (our accessory plug is by the companionway as our head is opposite the galley so it reaches both areas). We also have a solar shower for the sunny/uncrowded days. Cheers, Jill

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!

See the full list here!
