Hi Jim, can you take the strainer off and take a close up picture/ I don't have a shower in my boat so that is not something I have done. On my boat many things were installed and the boat built around it. I do know home shower drains, and they can be removed and replaced from the top, inside the shower with a special tool. Tool is a cheap little piece of metal that comes with the new fitting. Here is a setup you might have. See the caulking nut can be removed, and pipe is held water tight with the gasket. http://www.vizimac.com/shower-drain-installation/feature-template-3/

Good luck,
Eric

There is no room under my bathroom floor, and the bilge stops just short of the bathroom. I have a Centerboard setup. I built a heat exchanger for the engine and have a hand held, sink type sprayer and hose stored in the port lazarette long enough to use in the cockpit. Works great for washing down the cockpit whenever needed.

As long as that hose is not disturbed...and is is not exposed to UV and not under pressure. The hose can last for decades...or decades more. I have never replace either sink drain hoses, and the two water tank fill hoses. And theses hoses are in fine shape.
