Shower

Hi Guys, i was wondering, have any of you installed a deck shower on your rib?
I was trying to have a look for a well priced decent kit for this, any suggestions?

Most of us Scottish ribbers have one - it's more commonly called "the weather"!

Only possible problem I could see is the weight of fresh water you would need to carry with you. Sorry can't be of any real help here.......

A simple solution to providing a shower if you are skiing etc and want to wash off the salt water if you are staying out on the boat for the day.

or

Basically camping showers. Its a plastic bag you fill with water that has a tube and shower head on the bottom of it. The bag will warm in the sun but could be put in a jockey seat then pulled out and hung on the A frame as it is gravity fed.

May or may not be the solution you are looking for but cheap. £8

i have seen those camping showers before, the problem is i do not have a A frame...

I did find this tho
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Ring-12v-Por.../dp/B000V1UALM

Only issue would be the water tank... i was thinking of a 20 liter collapsible water tank under the driver seat in the center of the hull... what do you think?

Any ideas where to get a decent collapsible water tank online? In europe

RIBase
I think there must be something available in the RIBnet shop, as I see the Spawn over on the Dark Side discussing something they refer to as "that RIBnet Shower"...

Should work. But if you are on a 5m boat, i personally wouldn't bother. Take a bottle of water with you and pour it over your head to wash the salt off your face.

I was thinking of a Plastimo water tank (collapsible lined nylon thingie), a small 12V pump (Shurflo or similar) and a yacht shower head The shower head and pump should be in the couple of hundred buck range (US); not sure about the Plastimo tank.

The hold up (for me, anyway) is working out how to run the plumbing (you can tell I haven't been really pushed to complete this...)
