I've been wanting to do this for 15 years...now it is complete...feels good!

Seems like a small project, but it was actually quite involved due to the hot and cold water lines that needed to be run and tapped into the boat pressurized water system.

In this neck of the woods - showering twice a day, also gives that good feeling.

I'm pretty certain that I will simply melt when I get to the tropics.

After cruising the tropics for the last couple of years and getting by with the bucket over the noggin, we used our pressurised water shower last month - and yes - sheer bliss although how those submariners keep to 6o sec showers we have no idea

No "shower bag" hanging from a boom? That's what we did in the cockpit of our last boat. Here, our "indoor" shower is presently being fed by a 4 gallon shower bag sitting up on deck--since there's no pressure water to the shower stall and there won't be for quite some time as other priorities take precedence.

I do believe it is possible to shower in 60 seconds. The marines barely have any hair to wash.

Way to go! Cockpit shower works just dandy with a freshwater deckwash pump and extended flexible hose coming out of a Whale shower insert. We have a doghouse on Libertad - well actually more of a "wheelhouse" and we don't shower down below at all. We can run the water through the calorifier, but in the tropics, who needs hot shower water after a good morning's shooting fish for lunch? We've dedicated one watertank (fed from the deck rainwater collector or from water taken on alongside).
