Re: Marine Showers… How is yours set up?
My current boat has a separate shower, which I originally viewed as a huge waste of space. Now that I know it is one of my wife's favorite features of the boat it is no longer wasted space! It also makes a great wet/foulie locker underway.
On my previous boat I showered daily as a liveaboard but had a dual use head/shower space. I didn't want everything to be wet all the time so I made a circular shower curtain track out of copper tubing.
Basically I bent the copper tubing into a circle. I then bent the last 3" of tubing 90deg and pounded it flat with a hammer. That created 2 "L-brackets" into which holes were easily drilled to affix it to the wall.
The only problem was that since both brackets were at the opening of the circle, it would sag at the opposite end. Any perminant bracket would not allow the shower curtain rings to go all the way around the circle. The solution was a velcro strap on the ceiling. The curtain goes all the way around, and the strap goes inbetween 2 shower curtain rings.
Sorry, no pictres, but it worked great. The cat would sit on the bathroom counter and watch me shower while she stayed crispy dry.
I have a sauna on my boat, therefore I win.
