Hot Shower Water

Before taking my boat on a recent trip, I purchased a device called a "Hot Tap." On prior trips I had relyed on a solar shower bag, but I wanted something a little more robust.The Hot Tap uses the same small propane cylinders that my grill does.Water is circulated through a coil of tubing while it''s heated by a propane burner. It works great! Even though the unit is fully self contained - minus the water, I opted to tap into my existing boat water system and installed a regular garden house faucet in one of my cockpit lockers.Now, to take a hot shower,I simply screw the inlet hose of the Hot Tap to the faucet,turn the water and Hot Tap on,and I have an instant hot shower.Once the Hot Tap is turned on,it must have continuous water circulating through it.To avoid wasting any water when I''m soaping down,etc.,I just put the shower head of the Hot Tap into my water fill inlet on the deck of the boat. I couldn''t be pleased more with the system. If you''re interested, take a look at website link.
