The admiral would have a problem with this approach

My wife was completely in favor of it, but like I said I know it's not the right approach for everyone. Our boat had a shower in the head, but we never used it and preferred to use marina showers or an outdoor solar shower when cruising.

I've left the wiring and plumbing so that a future owner can put a hot water tank back in if they want to weigh down the boat some more and give up useless locker space.

I'm no longer participating on SailNet.

+1 for heat gun. Got a 3 inch exhaust hose off one time this way to replace (not reuse). Climbed in under the cockpit seats and wrestled with this boa constrictor! Also required the use of extreme bad language.

Yeah, after a couple of hours standing on my head in an engine room my body feels like it's played a full rugby match. Cuts, bruises, and filthy head to toe, what fun (not to mention the wonderful odor that I give off). The explicit language is just verbalization of that wonderful experience.

Another +1 for a heat gun or even a hair dryer. Especially for holding tank / head discharge hoses.

Re: Engine hose(s) removal, help

I use a heat gun a lot. Heat host till itsis bit too hot to touch, but no more
No need for fire extinguisher if common sense used
Of course, do not heat gas lines

If you have to remove regularly, replumb to have a drain and/or flushing valve, if at all possible
