Nice work. So clean. Good job. Love the flag pole and wash down unit. Where'd you get the wash down unit from?

Is it hard posting pics here? Why post and use a link here? If there is an issue posting pics please let me know.

I found it on Amazon.
I tested it and it puts out a lot of water, the siphon hose that I am testing with is 10ft long.
imo it looks and feels like a well made unit.

If I go to my pictures folder they come out as photo's, like this.

Interesting. Thanks for sharing. What are you using for the water reservoir? How many gallons does it hold?

My boat has the shower hose but the previous owner took out the reservoir to put in two 12" woofers. They sound good but I'm missing the shower.

My holding tank size is determined by the body of water we are on. I grab it from there.
I did not put it in to use as a shower per say, my main purpose was to clean off the bugs that spend the night with me when a stay on the hook with my masthead light on. I hope that I will never need it, but I could use it as a second bilge pump.

My boat came with a 30 gallon holding tank for the shower on the back deck and the sink in the mid cuddy. I found 30 gallon of fresh water was huge overkill for our use. That was the reason for my question. I'm thinking of a 5 or 6 gallon container for fresh water. Like you said not for showering but for cleaning feet or a mess on swim platform or using in the sink in the cuddy cabin.

Not sure if the pump was in the holding tank or if it's somewhere hiding on the boat. The power switch for it is in the cuddy but afraid the pump is gone along with the big ass holding tank. Will tear into this in the spring.

I carry a gallon or 2 of reverse osmoses water, depending on how long I will be gone.
It cost me 35 cents a gallon, and it is always fresh.
Good luck on your spring adventure into the unknown.
