It won't stink if you never flush with it. My head smells fine. Since we only visit the boat on weekends salt water flushing is not an option because of the smell. The salt water has been sitting in my intake for 5 years and it will stay there. The 100 gallons of fresh water I carry does fine for our week long vacations on a mooring.
The O.P. was a live aboard so there is no reason not to use the shower. If he goes on a trip one or two flushes will clean out the dead sea water and then he can use the salt water daily if needed.
