Deck Showers - where ?

Hi guys - where might I find a deck shower for my Medline II. I need an all-in-one unit which is the pump and nozzel together which runs to a bladder and powered by 12v.

I have done some research with goog and various other sites but keep hitting a blank or only units suitable for yachts and larger craft which run from a centeral pressurised system.

Any ideas - thanks in advance......

I believe an American company manufactures what you are looking for - Golden limited.

Do a Google search for Golden Showers and let us know what you find.

Another idea

How about a caravan water pump:- Carver Thames Water Pump w Hose
12v pump, which you place into your water tank, then attach fix a pipe joining kit through the lid of the water tank/barrel to connect the shower end to and run the wires from the pump to your switch?

All available from Towsure
Pump - £44.95
Trigger shower head £19.95

Just a thought.

Mmmmmm........

....a couple of good ideas there.
1. The longest hose B&Q do is 60ft which kind of prohibits my cruising ground and doesn't best utilise my 240ltr fuel tank.
2. Golden Showers - good tip, however I've now found another forum where already I've logged up 124 posts and arranged a "Cruise".
3. One can always rely on R.W for the safe option - thanks Rich.....
4. Thanks but I was looking for something pressurised !

May I continue to seek further ideas........now back to that other forum where things are just starting to pick up...

I meant a killer spray type thing - it IS pressurised and you can leave it in the sun to warm up!!!

it even comes with a lance so you can get into every nook and cranny - just remember to wash out the weedkiller first.......

This set up has a below deck tank, a pump under console and is operated by a switch on the main panel.

A lot of boaters use a garden sprayer here not so much for on-board, but for rinsing the trailer after launching/recovering.

I thought about it for a on-board rinse, but I think I'm going to go with a plumbed in system if I can find a bladder that will work in my below-deck space. I can get something like a ParMax pump for a couple of hundred dollars, and simply route the hose to wherever I want the nozzle. Sounds easier than it actually will be, I assume (kind of the way it goes, though, isn't it?)

Still not what......

......I was hoping for but thanks and keep em coming.

There are a great many ribs which come with deck showers. They usually have a bladder and small pump attached and like one of the pictues, come with a recessed nozzle.

Codders - good idea but I look t**t enough without pulling a weed killer tank (I know exactly what you mean) from below decks to hose of the wife as she comes Ursala Andress like up the boarding ladder - some how it doesn't quite go with the image

Hi, Linda;

Looks pretty unobtrusive, but I think plumbing the recessed nozzle into my aluminum deck might be a bit of work. Also, I carry spare dive cylinders underdeck on occasion, so the through-deck protrusion might be an issue. I planned to run the shower nozzle to somewhere around the console. Still all just planning, though, so nothing really firm.

Thanks for the pics.

How's the new boat coming along?

jky

Yes it looks..........

............very good Dave - thanks - however, I know a unit exists with the pump preficed into a blasser which you simply topp up with a hose. With your idea, which remains good, one would been a bucket or a blasser and some way of securing the pump within. Aditionally, the switch may not be waterproof.

However, 8 1/5 out of 10 for the best idea yet.
