Shower/toilet on adapted sailboat

Practical space-saving solution for shower and toilet on adapted sailboat.

Description
Inside the cabin of the sailboat is a toilet covered with a folding wood board. The toilet has a septic tank with a capacity of 25 l. An LPG-powered water heater hangs on the wall next to the toilet. A 100 liter tank for fresh water is located in the forecastle. The shower can be set to use either fresh water or seawater. There is a stop cock on the shower handle. A pump pumps the shower water out of the boat. The custom shower curtain is sewn using spinnaker fabric and hung with “snap locks” at 4 points.

Authors comments
The water heater is important for the user’s well-being. Warm water is necessary for a satisfactory toilet experience. A warm shower reduces spasticity.
