The hand held sprayer types work about as well, are cheaper, and take up less space.

See post #12 re: those who are a bit furry back there. I can't speak to the effectiveness of "spray only" for them, but for those who are less, hirstute, no scrubbing necessary. A couple puckers during a 10 second spray leaves ya clean.

I've never done a per use measurement, but for the engineers amongst us the specs are as follows:

6 ft length of 1/4" hose
40 psi of pressure (will vary based on how you've plumbed your boat)
10 seconds avg washdown for smooth bungs.

Pfffft . . . 30' sloops . . . now here's a real toy: Le Grand Bleu (yacht) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The 370' Le Grand Bleu carries both the 67' Sunseeker Sirius and the 74' sailing vessel Bellatrix as tenders. Must be rough . . .

Nothing says conspicuous consumption like your own ocean liner.

My grandmother always said "A clean a**hole is the mark of a civilized person." We wouldn't want to disappoint dear departed grandma.

And if you didn't clean it too well after spraying the roses ... bonus, no aphids on the butt either!

A MUST READ

When Dave first requested that I install a bidet in my house, I figured that my manly, steak-eatin', muscle-car drivin' husband would spout out the stereotypes and refuse to cleanse his butt with it. Surprisingly, however, he agreed, "as long as it doesn't tickle my b**ls." Dave assured me that it would not titillate his scrotal region if he aimed it correctly.

It was purchased solely for this purpose and has only had water in it.

Thinking about it, I'd be careful using a bidet if it was too cold. I wouldn't want to get my butt stuck to the toilet seat like the old tongue frozen to the ice tray, freezer door, or metal gate trick.
