Hello Wind - I haven't done so, but the idea sounds intriguing. After the virtual flogging I got from some of the Sailnet Spartans for being decadent enough to want an espresso machine onboard I would suggest that you put on some Cyber-armour (Level III-a at least) and be prepared for some flak

We rented a houseboat on the Shuswaps that had a hot tub. Great fun. Keeping it hot is going to be the challenge.

Features & SpecificationsEnjoy a soothing spa experience anywhere, anytime with the Spa-2-Go portable inflatable spa.

If I understand your question correctly, you want this to be "off your stern" - or in water? This portable unit is designed to be on solid ground - not floating off your boat's stern. Even if your invertor is capable of handling the 120v AC, 1000w loads, I doubt the heater & pump motor is designed to be submersible.

If what you envision is to have it in on deck, or in your cockpit . . . I'll just leave that to other's to comment on.

I don't believe the tub shown above will work in the water, but I have seen a floating hottub for boaters at a boat show somewhere. It's probably on the 'net.

2 questions: Does it come with all "equipment" pictured? If so, is it also available without the guy? If both answers are yes, all other issues can be dealt with.

Though it may have to be quite a ways off the stern to avoid notice by the Admiral.

I don't think that using that on a sailboat is such a good idea...particularly if you want to use it floating off the stern of the boat.

T34C... If you get it with both the guy and girl, the Admiral might not mind.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I guess you could just plug the cockpit drains and have one big Hot Tub. You could make the bubbles with the exhaust!

I've done just that although it was a small boat and just had room for myself to bathe.

Your thread? When did you take title? And what's the problem? Cute picture.
