Good question Kevin. It is possible but you would really want a separate shower stall. And even with that, you would be battling a lot of moisture.

We live aboard at a slip with shower facilities a short walk away. We figure, why steam up the boat if we do not have to. When out cruising we shower on the transom with salt water and do final rinse with fresh.
