The ShowerBecoming People of the SeaAt the Head of the Boat
or the ‘Bathroom’ Facilities
Our head is located in the bow of the boat, and the layout allowed for a separate shower stall - very nice. We’ve got a teak seat, tile around the base and a fiberglass surround.

The HeadWe have a granite topped counter with a stainless steel sink, a medicine cabinet above and storage underneath. The toilet (below the louvered doors to the chain locker) is covered and there is a wonderfully ample linen locker to port.

The toilet is currently a manual pump style, although there are some discussions going on about upgrading it to an electric, push button type. It’s a little bit of a hassle to lumber in there in the middle of the night, and then go through the calisthenics required to flush it. But, if you leave the lights off it is kind of fun to see the green bioluminescence flowing through the pipes!
