Shower conversion

I have a 1983 36 Albin... somewhere I read in a post that a owner had converted his aft head to a shower by removing the tub .. they fabricated a base and was placed in where the tub was removed . Has any done this ?? Thanks

I have a 1983 34 MT DC. A previous owner converted the forward head into a nice large shower stall. It was a good move as the aft head had no shower and a 34ft boat does not need 2 heads!

Used an RV shower pan which fit perfectly...easy peezy except had to relocate the drain which resulted in a new shower sump.....but no biggie....

Also made a custom cabinet behind as the old one was rotten.

Nice! I have a friend with an Albin 36 and always thought that miniature tub a bit odd....Nice conversion!

You never know when you might need a tub!! We used the tub on our Selene to transport large quantity of beer to the Bahamas.
