Not a problem Mark, it is related. One thing to realize about showering inside the boat, is that you tend to generate a fair amount of moisture with the hot water. Also, most boats that have a shower also have a sump of some sort to direct the water to, rather than straight to the bilge. If you were to do that, you would need a good strainer on it to prevent hair, etc. fouling the bilge pump.

Given the number of people that you expect to utilize a shower, my guess is that a propane "instant" type heater would be your best bet. Don't know if that is what the Bosch is, but Paloma makes one, which I have seen on a number of boats.

Since you consider propane an option, perhaps True Blue will chime in with a description of his setup, as he uses propane.
