Gosh Aquaholics, that's a bit harsh on the generally very helpful membership in my opinion.

And also a very sweeping statement about us all being well off! Far from it I would say, having been a member here for 15 years and met many of the membership at our forum meets. We bought a small boat 15 years ago, and still have her as that's what's suits our budget.

In terms of the shower question - though it seems to be no longer relevant I've decided to add info for anyone reading this thread or seeking info in the future .  Our heads compartment is compact ( 23 foot boat) but was built as a wet room and the sink tap is on a hose that pulls out and can be fixed to a wall bracket for a shower. Yes you might bang your elbows if you are not careful, but it works for us. The door is set with a high threshold like many boats, and the base of the room is essentially like a shower tray that drains by auto pump into a  box beneath which then empties.  When not using the room as a shower we have a small mat which covers the floor and drainage hole (no cold feet when using the Loo during the night!) . That mat goes outside the door in the main cabin when having a shower as it is best to step out of the heads to get dry and dressed on that mat with a bit more room. Minor incovenience , just have to remember to draw the adjacent cabin curtains ! There's only the two of us so nobody else to worry about.

Note to add - the one member who questioned your position has only ever posted half a dozen times in 9 years so hardly indicative of the membership.

Also, I can't quite follow one of your comments  - are you saying there are a far too many private boaters, both on The Broads and this forum, for your liking ?

I never said anything about too many private boats on the Broads..We would have been 1st time owners had we brought a boat..But you would not buy the first car you saw would you, you would look around at different models until you find what suits you, like you would with a boat..In hindsight, we should have just kept quiet..

Mrs P and I spent most of yesterday in two local car dealerships, discussing our requirements for a new (to us) car, with the salesmen and looking a various models. We actually went out for a test drive in one possible. But we decided it wasn't the one for us, so the search goes on. We are quite regular visitors to these showrooms, either for servicing for our cars or tyre kicking. We will continue looking around until we find just the car we want.

I don't see any difference with buying a boat. Look at as many as you can. Draw up a list of your 'must haves' and 'don't wants' and ask questions on here. We can all learn something from the answers!

The poster who's got up your nose can hardly be considered a regular contributor and I even suspect it may be the alter ego. Ignore such comments and focus on finding just the boat for you - taking on board the helpful comments you've received.

Good grief, what a ridiculous reaction to my post. I was just saying, not with any malice, that you look at a lot of boats. There is indeed nothing wrong with that. In fact it was me who advised you about the Relcraft you looked at being under offer, so sorry for any offence caused. I am totally lost as to how you think that because of my comment, it has created a divide between boat owners and hirers.  Yes I have only posted a few times on here, now you can see why. Once again apologies for any offence that I didn't intend to cause. Good luck with your search in the future. As for me I will stay away.
