I was wondering about the pronounciation too... The insurace underwriter I just spoke to pronounced in 'genoa', but mostly I've hear 'juno'. I asked a frenchman about it and he pronounced it more or less like 'juno' but with the soft 'j'. But if the standard pronounciation in the U.S. is 'juno' or 'jenno' or whatever, I think I am going to stick with that because I don't want to sound like I am pretending I speak French.
Waymar looks great. I like the red haylard that matching the cloth.
About the shower... On my boat, I think the faucet was replaced with one that doesn't have a shower head, so we'll need to replace it. It is sealed off from the bilge and has its own pump, so I'll let you know how that setup works. My battery bank looks exactly like yours. I was surprised at how quiet the engine was from inside the cabin-- I think the soundproofing is just the original foam, but I am not sure.
