to get back on the shower topic, my boat came with a shower pan (although I had to re-plumb the drain to the aft sump). A removeable 'hatch' in the sole exposes the pan/tub. Cool (I thought).

I tried it a couple times got tired of it taking as long to clean/mop up the remaining water on the walls, doors, etc. as it took to shower.

I made up an 'industrial strength' sun-shower. I picked up a large (10 liter?) Dromedary bag from REI. Being made of a lined, coated fabric it's much more more rugged than the plain ol vinyl/plastic sunshowers. Plus, it's black which absorbs the heat really well (sometimes TOO well). I simply stuck a sun-shower nozzle to the end of some 1/2" plastic tubing, stuck the other end to the Dromedary valve and Voila!.

I find it's easier to shower on deck. While nudity isn't flaunted, outside the states showering on deck just seems the natural thing to do. If modesty is needed/required, I hang the sunshower on the gallows or boom and sit in the cockpit 'tub' and bathe.

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!
