Anything related to living aboard your boat

We have a 1977 Grand Banks Classic. This was in the days before the stall shower. How many people actually use the wet head, and how do you control spray on the back wall, and on the headliner?

So far we have avoided it with marina showers but as we do the loop it would be nice to shower aboard from time to time.

We have a 1987 36 Classic and use the shower almost exclusively while cruising. We prefer the privacy and cleanliness of our shower over the uncertainty of marina facilities. We use micro fiber towels to wipe down the entire head including the condensation that occurs on the headliner. The cabinet and drawer doors also need be opened for drying. The hand drying takes very little time to complete. The important action is to have the sliding window and door open for a while after wipe down to assist the drying process. The collection pan and sump area need cleaning periodically to remove soap scum and hair. At the end of our journey, at times can be 30 days or 7 days, we leave the teak slatted floor sections in a vertical position to allow complete drying for a few days of no use.
