Fresh water transom/bathing shower

Hi
I am looking to retro fit a fresh water shower for the bathing platform.
This is based on the assumption that a good summer is on the way.

Do any of you know of any kits that we could consider.

With the residual heat in the engine bay (diesel inboard) I would hope to keep the resevoir in there. The engine and bay remain warm for several hours after switch off. This should take the chill off the water.

we have 15amp power point close by.
Thanks Paul

Depends how neat or permanent you want to make it

This might do the job

I was in our local Force4 yesterday and they had a cheaper shower kit that was more of a portable/temporary effort for less than 50, can't remember exact price and doesn't seem to be on their website. Could try giving them a call if you're interested...

So why not do the job properly and put a heat exchanger/cylinder in there and enjoy hot water whenever you run the engine?
