Does anyone know of a source of pre-made units that could be retro fitted in a boat. I tried to find some using google
in RV sources but came up with nothing, yet......
Pre-made surrounds like in a house but more compact would be ideal.
I have wondered about something like this and a similar idea to modify existing "two heads" designs on a boat to make one a "Dedicated Shower."
I know most boats of this size try to squeeze two multifunction heads in the boat plan.
As I intend to have a boat just for a cruising couple, I think one head (if the boat comes with typical two) could be modified to better use, possibly reducing the need (eliminating) a holding tank
The thought I had was to take out the "second" head (toilet) and holding tank
, then make a sit down shower stall in its place. I have also been considering the potential replacement of a typical marine head
with a composting toilet/head. Then the boat would have a composting head in one "head space" and a dedicated shower with bench in the other "head space."
Of course many would not want to do this as it may affect resale value of a production design boat. But, I have been looking at boats that are custom, one off, and some that are designed for a couple primarily, without the need to accommodate a lot of guests.
Anyone have thoughts on this conversion?
