RE: Showering aboard- question

Just a thought. What about a fan in the door.

You could make the vent look like a 1/2 moon

Nicro marine has a solar 12v, 4 inch vent that runs 24/7 (internal nite battery).

Yes, they do, and they work well, with a solar charge to the Ni-Cad batt during the day that keeps it running at night, and they last for years.* I have one in the hatch of the front cabin where we sleep to keep it fresh even when all closed up.* Works a treat, however, we leave out the battery now because the buzz it makes is intrusive at night.* But for a toilet.........

RE: Showering aboard- question

We use the transom shower in the cockpit. There are drains and plenty of natural ventillation. No problem. Using the shower in the head, we would probably have many of the problems mentioned above.

Of course, you probably don't want to do that in a crowded anchorage or at a marina. If we're at a marina we use the marina's showers.

No. Ours didn't anyway - maybe there is a Rolls Royce version that does, but we had to open a flap with Phillips screw and disconnect the battery to stop it at night. Became a pain. but as I implied, probably not an issue in the loo.

Peter,

I think all of*the newer Nicro's have a switch.* My last two seamed to get a light*ticking sound that was really a PIA.* But they were in the salon so we could not hear it in the aft cabin.

Mine has a push button switch but you have to stick your finger in between the fan blades to get to it.* The switch failed and I had to replace it.
