Is there room for that..? No-body needs a bath on a boat really, but a good shower is vital.
I was thinking the same thing about trying to put the shower pan about 6" below the floor level. I probably won't know what's involved with that until I rip the tub out though

Now that's what I call unlucky, I trust you were covered by insurance. If the insurance company declines the claim on the grounds of 'an act of god' tell them you are an atheist.

It is a great looking boat, but I agree get rid of the bath set up.

Welcome to the club of the eternal optimists and home of the economically brave.
1. I only have liability
2. If I had full coverage i doubt it would have helped much past the $1000 deductible, at least I didn't spend that much doing the labor myself and southern-engineering the toilet controls.

I have not seen it but I'll definitely have to check it out.

She's a beaut, congratulations!

Bummer about the lightning. I had a similar case, with me it was a massive snowstorm just a couple days after I closed, and before I'd even been aboard for the first time as owner. The Bimini damage would barely have been covered by insurance, so it wasn't worth making a claim.

There's nothing like that kind of damage to make you really feel you now OWN the boat! In other words, it's now YOUR problem. Tag. You're it.

It'll be fun to set the shower area up the way YOU want. Mine has a full-sized tub for some reason. Doesn't make a lot of sense, but that's how it came, and the whole head is molded as one piece.

Ah, Bermagui. Now that brings back memories. Just finished the HSC ( high school) staying in a caravan in the local park with a bunch of mates. Surf, girls & beer ( the order depending on the time of day). All of us with not a bob (dime) to rub together. Loved Bermagui

Funnily enough I am going down there in three weeks on my way to ride one of the Victorian rail trails for five days on my mountain bike with a bunch of old friends. I'll give the old caravan park a smile & wave on my way through.

A good friend of ours from New Zealand made us aware of this movie years ago. Absolutely worth the effort to find and watch!
I forgot about it, now I'll have to find it again!!!
Thank you

You might consider adding a platform / cockpit shower.
Our last boat had a wet head and I used the outdoor facilities much more often than the indoor.

Yes, a swim deck or transom shower is on my short list of improvements if I keep the boat. I'd probably have to cut through the transom into the lazzerette to install it cleanly. On a ski boat that works perfectly but I'm not sure how that'll affect seaworthyness.

I just shower in the cocpit with my wash down hose while underway. More room and I get a lot of waves from passer byes ops That way I don't have to clean up the wet bath and also put smiles on many faces.
