pressurized water system

I'm clueless here... Our Newport 33 has a hot water heater that I guarantee has never been used. It also does have pressurized water for the galley sink, but not for a shower. That's a foot pump thing. So I need to get the heater checked out, but also would like to know about re-plumbing the head/shower. Easy? Hard? Expensive? I'm not talking about hour long showers... but the pump thing isn't going to do it for us, for sure! Thanks.

You should be able to put a tee connector in your pressurized lines (after the pump) and hook your head hoses into the tee.

Boats often get modified in strange ways by handyman owners. If you don't have a marina that you can trust,your best bet is to hang out on the dock until you see someone who looks like they may know their way around and ask them to have a look. A water system is not complicated, but if somone has been doing strange things with it, it IS complicated. Please don't be bashfull, If you asked me, I would be glad to give you my two cents worth.
