Re: The Mallorca Squad

Weavis, if you would just learn how to tango they would be eating out of your hand....or maybe you just escaped the nut house like Ken. He thinks he escaped.....but he's still in the shipyard.....come to think of it, so am I....for at least a few more weeks.:-(

But once you get the cat, then you won't need the shower

Sounds like a good way to make a living while cruising... head down to the China store, find a usefull object, then use its likeness to launch a Kickstarter project. Many of these scams (dumbass ideas) never produce anything. Still waiting for the Canadian folding bike company that raised a couple million to produce its first bike after two years time from reaching their "goal."

I like the heating element bit... and the no pump pressurisation. Id like to see it in action.

I like
Many yachts have a shower at the stern, some are even connected to the hot water.

I now have a deck wash pump connected to both the fresh & seawater.

Looks great if you go to the beach a lot and want to wash off before you get in your car.

Re: The Mallorca Squad

Hoppy,

We have the same. Weavis is just having trouble crawling into the 21st century, or late 20th century.

He needs get a boat before investing in some wacky portable shower scam. Geez, the Chinese have probably copied the idea by now and their kickstart lookalike will be in stores before the company manufactures its first retail model.

Re: The Mallorca Squad

Gosh. Pick on weavis day. Go for it.

I have the UK covered with 2 boats in the family. I thought about pulling one out here but.... no.

I like Cats.

HOwever, my cruising area in the Western Med is suited better to power Cats. Therefore out of my present financial range given my commitments to a new clinic in Sevilla starting June.

I can afford the shower.

Tie the two boats together and you'll have your cat
