Centaursailor:

I have not had any mildew issues other than in the water tank. During the summer it is so dry even any water that finds its way into the bilge doesn't last.

Technically yes, but I wonder if that is wise? Is there a reason shower sumps are plumbed out above the water line? Since the shower pan drain is lower than the thru-hull, that could be...
