Shower In Owners Hull -shared Tap ?

Hi
I am trying to make out on the photos if the bathroom washbasin tap doubles as the shower head? It looks as though there is hole next to the basin to poke the tap through?
Is this the case and if so ,and is it a pain in the bum?
Thanks

Is there a place to hang it up in the shower stall? Or do you have to hold it?

There is a place to hang it and you can adjust the angle. The only issue is if you stretch the hose too tight it reduces water flow but not an issue once you are accustomed to using it

I used it for more than 14 days. not an issue really once you realize the minor limitations.

It's not as nice as a real shower head, but keeps costs down. and given how many showers are taken on board the average boat I think it is a good place to save the cost of supply line and valve.

That is the way the factory supply the shower. Many of us who own a Lipari have fitted a separate shower hose and mixer in the shower recess. Not difficult to fit and makes it much more useable

My model Lipari (#59) did not come with a holder but understand that others have added one. I have bought the fitting but still on the to do list.....

BTW the pump for the shower is in a very, very difficult position to reach so suggest you add a hair trap to the drain or only sail with hair challenged people. We just store a bicycle in both showers so problem solved although nobody seems to want to sail downwind of us
