In regards to using engine exhaust, I'd be VERY worried about CO poisoning. Considering that people die while sitting on a swim-step you surely could be overcome while sitting in a cockpit full of water with engine exhaust bubbling up.

If you ran a heat exchanger off of the engine you could run it closed loop through the cockpit drains; but you would not have bubbles...

Keelhaulin-

I still think the engine exhaust sounds better (among other attributes) than human exhaust.

The aft cabin looks a whole lot like a hot tub now that you mention it. Hummmm? Try and explain that sinking to the insurance company!

If you want a sailboat hot tub, then I would suggest you put the inflatable of the stern, fill it with water in the morning, get in it when it is towards the middle of the afternoon and bring some soap.

Whenever we want to soak in the warmth of hot water while anchored, a separate tub of hot water is the furthest from our minds. We slip on our full 7ml black neoprene wetsuits, including booties, gloves . . . and if we're really feeling masochistic, our hoods.

Soon after tethering off the stern, the seawater that gets trapped between rubber and skin, reaches a stifling hot temperature. No floatation needed either.

I have an Irwin 33...think I can get one too?

"Bahamian Rhapsody is a 72" Irwin offering generous accommodations for up to eight guests and many added comforts to make for a perfect yachting holiday. The aft deck, complete with a hot tub and plenty of deck space for sunning is another popular spot. Additional toys on Bahamian Rhapsody include a 13' Boston Whaler w/50hp outboard, water ski's, snorkel gear and fishing rods. The large swim platform provides easy access to the water for everyone. "

I know it's not a sailboat, but it's possible:

When someone states "I've done just that" you gotta wonder if anyone else out there might take it as "it can be done" and then goes out and does it themself. Maybe that is where the fad of towing people along by the swimstep came from; people seeing it done and just assuming it is OK/safe. While most people would think it's a no-brainer that you should not do something like pump engine exhaust through a cockpit tub; there is always some VI that would.

I would not fill my cockpit with water to make it a tub; but on the Vonage scale that's pretty low compared to using engine exhaust to heat it and make soothing bubbles.
