thanks for posting the picture. (different markup to another forum I frequent)

It also uses the same bilge pump and float switch that I have in other places in the boat

I use a 2 1/2 gallon plastic pesticide container rigged with a faucet spray nozzle. I fill up half cold / half hot water heated with the alcohol stove. I made a custom fiberglass version of the shower sump because of space issues. The system has worked fine. I shower up top when conditions are appropriate. Long, hot showers are left for land based facilities.

Bug Sprayer !!!

aprox 2 gallon sprayer with 1 gal+ of cold water (summer cold) and tea pot of boiling water. Chapin Inc. is my favorite with the three different nozzle inserts that regulate flow. The lowest flow rate is fine and in a pinch two can take a GOOD shower on little more than one gallon and then get dressed up fancy and go out diner/dancing. On my first boat I had a full cover over the cockpit and that was the shower stall. Now it's 40' LOD and the pump up garden sprayer is still the best. It you have more water than you know what to do with you can take a 2 gal shower but I get tired of all that wonderful hot water running/rinsing over me after a little more than 1.5 gallons. If you have lots of spare time/money then go for a plumbed pressure hot & cold running but research Buckminster Fuller and his fogging shower heads. Mc Gill University did some research on that and as of a year or two ago would sell the reprints of their work.
