Rain.

On the other hand I have a Sterns Solar Shower, works exceptionally well hanging from the boom or laying in the hatch over the head.

I think showers waste the water. A bucket and a towel is much better I think

I like this one as well, and would recommend it, but I built my own. I found a standard pesticide sprayer at Home Depot (black - 2.5 gallons), modified the hose and nozzle, and whalla: Pressure shower that heats up fast in the sun, and hold the warmth far better than any bag I've ever used (and we used many over the years).

It's not as easily storable as a bag, but on our boat it's been really good

The 'original' Solar Shower that I'd had for years finally failed and when I replaced with the same brand I found the brand was bought by another company and is no longer quality made. I replaced with the below Stearns SUN SHOWER and have been pleased.

We like this shower. It is small and easy to pack and bring back out on deck as needed. We didn't need anything fancy and this worked wonderfully.

Re: Solar Shower for Aft Deck

I've got both, a hangup solar shower and a home made pump up shower (bug sprayer + sink veggie sprayer spliced in). I think that the sprayer I have is larger than the one pictured.

the pump up wins hands down. Its large enough for two showers. The pressure and spray pattern is much better than the gravity feed bag. I add a teapot of boiling water and it's downright luxurious.

Faster is right on, that the solar bag is more easily stowed. I tried lashing the pump up to the handrails on the cabin top ... then the stanchions ... I've ended up lashing the pump up sprayer on the outside of the stern rail, its out of the way and can stay there for cockpit showers.

True, but it's not big (take a look at the video in the link, and how it can be used for other things as well - it's more useful than merely a gravity fed shower bag).

If you had the space and wanted to be able to heat it up on the stove top, you could go for this "luxury" version (the burner and foot for it can be dumped):

The best sunshower, by far, that we've used is from Advanced Elements.
