Pray tell, what is this "list" for? Silly Boat Things (SBT's)? 'cause there's lots and lots of SBT's out there.

I know, I must have bought most of them at one time or another.

I.D.
You should know, Pacific NW is in your location box. All this about having a swim ladder is nonsense. Someone might like to soak the cold bones once in a blue moon in these cold waters.

Indeed, Greg, in Puget Sound, a swim ladder is one of those SBT's! (Without a drysuit, that is.)

Actually, we've been cruising in warm waters for the last two years (until the economy blew up) where the swim ladder was not a SBT. Now, back in Puget Sound country and bringing the boat up here.

The Formosa 51 came with a tub.

Actually, my girlfriend asked me the same question. Why no tub? This was just after we visited a Formosa 51. I told her jokingly that I'd put the inflatable on deck and fill it with hot water for her, she was satisfied with that. Problem is, now I have to find a way to fill the dinghy with hot water

How much heat can a Zodiac take?

Have seen a tub twice. Both times in 'classics' - a converted fisher and a motor-sailor, both of the British boats.

See, there are some that think a tub is OK idea for a sailing vessel. I will add the Formosa 51 to the list!

I don’t care if you all do laugh.
A tub big enough for one adult (at least) is pretty high on my list to incorporate—when I eventually start to live on my fifty foot sailboat. I guess it depends how old your bones are, but I use my home hot tub daily, especially after back-aching work, so what’s wrong with having one on your boat home? After running the engine for an hour, (coming into port or anchorage), I expect to have at least 40 gallons of piping hot water, and the generator or gas heater better be able to supply the rest. A hot tub jet kit will be installed to provide a massage, and a pint of beer will sit in the specially made holder on the side.
As you get older it's important to get your priorities right, so I’m also thinking the whole thing should be detachable, so if the boat sinks I can still float around in my bathtub…….

Wow! A 40 gallon water heater. This is on a sail boat? I definitely suggest getting one of the hydronic hot water/heat systems or one of the other types of instant heating systems. The 40 gallon heater with water will easily be 400 lbs somewhere. If you're thinking cat, that better be a pretty big cat!

But, I'm not laughing! Feel free to invite me over and I'll bring a really good couple of pints with me.

Not laughing, I am glad to have started this post. If they were not important to a lot of people why would they be in practically every land dewlling? Just tradition, I think not.

i was in a NYC apartment where they had very little space for a bathtub. They built a tub that was not very wide but was 4 feet deep
You stepped down into it, and sat down as if you were in a chair. i think such a tub could fit almost any boat


What I want is a sauna!

Just a crazy thought here, this: Hotpod™ Portable Floating Spa with a high output electric bilge pump that will pump salt water through some type of heat exchanger on your exaust manifold to fill it with hot water, also maybe one with a black lining to solar heat it or a combo of both.
